We offer Weekly or Bi-weekly Visits:
Residential Contract Services
If you have a pool, you know how much work it takes to keep it running smoothly and looking good. By providing regularly scheduled visits on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, Capitol Pools tries to remove most of the hassle of pool ownership out of the equation. Although no pool service company can make your pool completely hands-free, we try to make it as easy for you as possible to enjoy your pool.
Service: Capitol Pool Service will clean the pool and the tile, service the pool system and clean/backwash the filter, and brush the pool as needed. The technician will also test the pool water and add the necessary chemicals to balance the water. Most chemicals, such as chlorine, pH, and alkalinity balancers are included in the weekly and bi-weekly contracts.
Spring Opening: CPS will remove debris from the winter cover and stow it, if applicable, vacuum the pool, clean the tile and coping, hose the deck and add the necessary chemicals to get the pool started. We will also check the pool equipment and inform the customer of any problems we notice.
Fall Closing: We clean the pool, blow out all pool pipes, add the winter chemicals, lower water to the winter level and install the winter cover, if applicable.
Winter Inspection Program: During the winter months, your pool still needs attention. The water level may need to be adjusted after heavy precipitation, debris may have accumulated on the cover and chemicals may need to be added to ensure water quality in the spring. For a reasonable charge, CPS will check all the vitals on your pool and keep it looking good and ready for you when the weather warms.
Equipment, Renovations and Commercial Services
Pumps, filters, heaters: We use only top-quality equipment and we size it properly for your pool, ensuring that you receive the best value for your money.
Chlorine Generators: If you would like to get away from chlorine tablets, chlorine generators, utilizing regular salt is a viable option. The water smells and feels better, and there are fewer residual chemicals in your pool.
Automatic Pool Cleaners: Those little devices that work off a timer and run around the bottom of your pool for a few hours a day will help keep the debris out of your pool. If yours breaks, we can fix or replace it.
Automatic Control Units: Have your pool, in fact, your entire backyard running like clockwork every day. With the control unit conveniently inside your house, you control the pool pump, cleaner, pool lights, water features, spa, and yard lights as you please. Overriding the automatic settings is simple. We’ll show you how.
Automatic Pool Covers: A great safety feature for any rectangular pool. We fix, replace, install and service. We recommend annual box cleaning and drain clearing. Complete cover maintenance including inspection, lubrication, alignment, cleaning, and parts replacement (as needed), should be done every two years.
Winter Covers: Capitol Pool Service has been installing winter safety covers for more than 30 years. We measure and install the covers ourselves to make sure you get the best fit possible. We can offer you a wide variety of Loop-Loc color options to suit your needs.
In addition to regular contract service, we can also renovate your pool to any degree you wish. We can replace tile, coping, and entire decks. The pool can be re-plastered with any of the modern materials currently being used and in virtually any color you choose. The reconstruction of your pool, including the tile, coping and most decking is done in-house.
Tile Replacement: Choose from hundreds of tiles in the catalog and have the actual samples in your hands in a few days. Solid, multicolored, mosaic, and decorative tiles are offered.
Coping Replacement: Thirty years ago the choices were white cast concrete or flagstone. Today, flagstone is still very popular, but white cast concrete disappeared like the shag rug, to be replaced with a wide variety of colored bricks, to give your older pool a much-updated look. Caulking is also included where necessary.
Re-plastering: Many current renovations also include adding color to the pool surface. The palate of available colors is surprisingly large. From a natural-looking mottled gray to a striking dark blue, the color can add a new dimension to your pool.
Decking: Like anything else, decks show signs of age with cracking and chipping. We can do the simple job of preparing and re-pouring a concrete deck, or it can be upgraded with beautiful flagstone. Brick pavers are also an option.
Pool Demolition and Removal: Working in conjunction with Great American Landscapes (301-972-5861; greatamericanlandscapes.com), we can remove any pool and transform your vision of your new backyard into a reality. You can reclaim your space! In only a matter of days, your backyard can be what you want it to be.
Health Clubs, Fountains, Hotels and Pools: Provide weekly or bi-weekly service to office building fountains and commercial pools and spas such as hotels and health clubs. Please call the office at 301-608-1100 for more detailed information, as every commercial installation is different.
Automatic Chemical Controllers: With the Hayward Cat Controllers, the water in your pool, spa or fountain can be chemically controlled automatically by implementing feeding that is proportional to the demand. Web-based technology also allows both remote monitoring and adjustment, if your facility requires it. These systems are compatible with most existing chemical feed equipment. Please call for a free assessment.
Equipment Replacement: We specialize in filters, pumps and chemical feed equipment for commercial locations. No system is too big.
Governmental Regulation and Compliance: Please contact us if you need assistance bringing your facility into compliance with the 2010 Americans With Disabilities Act, the 2007 Virginia Graeme Baker Act, or any other governmental requirement. See our ADA/Gov't Regs page for more specific information on these acts.
We service all types of commercial fountains, regardless of manufacturer. Whether the fountain is located inside a mall or an office building, or outdoors, we can offer you a service program customized to your needs to help maintain both the water quality and the appearance of your water feature. In addition, we install (and recommend the use of) automated chemical feeding systems to keep the fountains looking their best. Please call us to schedule a free on-site visit to assess your service needs.
