Have you ever wondered how to calculate the volume of your backyard swimming pool? There are many instances in which you will need to have an idea of how many gallons your swimming pool holds- like if you’re adjusting or adding swimming pool chemicals.
We found this handy little swimming pool volume calculator over at Pentair Water’s website. You will need to have an idea of how deep your pool is at both the shallow and deep end of the pool, as well as the basic shape. Enter those values in and push “calculate” and presto! the gallons (or volume of your pool) will be magically calculated.
If calculators are a little too much math for you, and you’ve always been curious about getting help with your Utah swimming pool maintenance– consider giving us a call. We are the only swimming pool company in Utah that specializes in swimming pool, spa, and hot tub service. We are pros when it comes to weekly and bi-weekly swimming pool care, including maintaining your swimming pool’s chemicals.

Many swimming pool companies in Utah spend most of their time and energy on building pools, and couldn’t care less about helping their customers with their long term pool service needs. If you notice that your swimming pool company is doing any of the following, you need to call Lifeguard Pools. We are a swimming pool and spa service company, and that’s all we do. Pretty simple, huh?
They Never Answer The Phone: Your swimming pool company should want your business, and should work hard to get it and keep it. If your pool guys aren’t answering the phone and your messages aren’t being returned, your swimming pool company doesn’t care enough about you. Move on to a company that answers your calls, like Lifeguard Pools and Spas. We’ve even been known to answer our phone on weekends and evenings for all of your swimming pool and spa emergencies.
They Never Show Up On Time: Your time is valuable- and you deserve to have your swimming pool service company to show up on time. If you’re spending too much time waiting around and not enough time actually enjoying your pool, give us a call.
They Don’t Send Qualified Pool Professionals: Your pool company should be sending qualified pool professionals who know what they’re doing and perform the agreed upon service. If you’re noticing that the quality of service and repairs is low, it’s time to find a new company.
If you’re looking for a new Utah swimming pool company to complete your weekly or bi-weekly service, give us a call at 801-208-9527.
There are a lot of great things about owning a Utah swimming pool or hot tub in your backyard: the convenience, the awesome summer parties, the popularity with friends and neighbors (okay, so this is sometimes a win/lose situation). Some of the less awesome parts of owning a swimming pool or spa in your backyard can include swimming pool and/or spa repairs.
Swimming pool and hot tub repair specializations for the Utah area include:
Chemical Automation Systems
Swimming Pool Automation Systems
Swimming Pool Leaks
We also feature the following pool or spa services in case you haven’t done so in a while:
Acid Washing the Plaster: Acid wash, like acid trip? No. actually an Acid Wash is more like a facial peel for your inground pool or spa. After you drain your pool or spa, a diluted solution of muriatic acid is applied to the walls of your pool or spa. The acid takes away a fine layer of plaster and leaves your pool looking brighter, fresher, cleaner and with less stains.
Tile Repair and Cleaning: We recommend repairing cracked tile as they occur, instead of waiting until half your pool needs some TLC.
Draining and refilling pool: Most pools or spas should be drained every 5-8 years. Don’t worry, it won’t cost you an arm a leg to refill, thanks to our Utah water prices.

Q. How do I know when it’s time to clean my swimming pool filter?
A. When a brand new filter, filter elements, or sand is installed on a pool and the system is first started up, you should take note of the pressure gage at the top of the filter and make note of that number. When the filter pressure rises more than 10 lbs. above that number it is time to backwash or clean your filters. Since the hydraulics of every pool are different, that starting number will be different on every pool.
After you have cleaned or backwashed the filters the pressure gage should read at it’s original starting position. You may find that your filters need to be cleaned as often as once a week, or sometimes as little as once a year, depending on the type of filter, water, climate, etc. The pressure gage should determine the amount of time between cleanings, not the calendar. If you have to clean your filters too often (more than once a week), it’s likely time to replace your filter media entirely.
