What is a Sun Shelf?

If you are building a new custom pool, you may want to consider adding a sun shelf. Popularized by high-end hotels, sun shelves have become increasingly popular with pool owners in Tucson. Sometimes called a tanning ledge, baja shelf, or tanning shelf, a sun shelf is a flat, shallow area at the entrance of your pool. This feature acts as an entry point and can span your pool’s full or partial width.

Generally, the shelf design will be 4 to 8 feet wide and typically 3 to 18 inches deep. This allows space for lounge chairs. It is possible for the ledge to be larger so it can accommodate furniture like umbrellas and small tables, which creates an ideal location for entertaining.

Why Should You Add a Sun Shelf?

Adding a sun shelf can make your pool more aesthetically pleasing by bolstering its appearance and making the pool more luxurious and upscale. Beyond adding beauty, the functionality is unrivaled. It allows you to lay directly in the water without fully immersing your body which makes it the ideal place to cool off when you do not want to get fully wet.

Many people use their sun shelves to keep cool in the hot Tucson sun or for reading, relaxing, and socializing. With a traditional pool, you spend your time either in the water or next to it. With a sun shelf, you get the best of both worlds as it allows you to be both in and out of the water at the same time.

A sun shelf can also be used as the perfect supervised play area for young children or pets. Everyone in your household will be able to enjoy your pool with the addition of a sun shelf. At Pools by Design, we tailor our designs to meet our customers’ needs. We can customize your shelf’s width and depth so it is perfect for you and your family.

Advantages of a Tanning Ledge

A tanning ledge is a perfect addition if you are thinking of redesigning an existing pool or for a new pool installation. It is easily incorporated into different types of pool designs as it comes in a variety of shape and size options. It takes up less space than a beach entry and can easily fit into tight spaces.

A ledge also increases the time you can spend in and around your pool. It warms up more quickly than the deeper areas so you can relax early in the morning or during a cooler day. This can extend your swimming season and allow you to get more use out of your pool.

There are endless possibilities with a sun shelf in your pool that will allow you to enjoy it in a variety of ways. Common features that can be included are a built-in umbrella sleeve, massage jets, lights, fountains, and built-in loungers and tables.

High-Quality Pool Lounge Chairs

Choosing the best pool and patio furniture can help you get the most out of your custom pool. You deserve to feel completely comfortable when relaxing poolside and your luxury pool should have luxury furniture to go with it. In-water pool lounge chairs are a particularly great choice because they let you enjoy the cool water while reclining peacefully. When it comes to this type of outdoor decor, Ledge Lounger is the clear choice.

Here are some of the reasons that Ledge Lounger in-water furniture is an excellent choice for your pool:

Durable In-Water Loungers

Any type of outdoor furniture needs to be durable enough to withstand the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. This is especially true in Tucson, since we have so many sunny days, even during the colder months of the year. In addition to sun-resistance, in-water furniture needs to be able to handle constant exposure from your pool water and any sanitizing chemicals you use.

Ledge Lounger’s in-water pool furniture is made from UV16-rated resin. This high-quality material is designed to keep its color even after up to 16,000 hours in direct sunlight. It is also built to be weather-resistant and can handle exposure to pool chemicals, including chlorine. Their Signature Chaise also comes with a 2-year warranty.

A Variety of Color Options

Your custom pool should reflect your style and complement your home’s architecture. Similarly, your pool lounge chairs should integrate well with your pool design. One important factor to consider is color. You may want to have a more textured pattern like sandstone or granite if you have a Pebble Tec finish or other natural elements. In other cases, you may want a bright color like coral, mint, or lime green so that your furniture stands out. Ledge Lounger also offers neutral colors like tan or white that fit perfectly with nearly any aesthetic.

Furniture You Can Pair with Pool Lounge Chairs

You may want to include more furniture than in-water chaise loungers so that you can enjoy an even more relaxing experience.

Here are just some of the options you can choose from:

Side Tables

In-water side tables create a convenient place for food, drinks, books, or phones. This makes them all easily accessible while you relax in your pool. Ledge Lounger has many choices from tables with built-in ice bins for drinks to classic coffee tables. Whether you want to entertain guests or create your own perfect space for unwinding, these table options make it easy.

Group Lounging

In addition to individual pool chairs, Ledge Lounger has furniture that allows multiple people to relax together. These include their Round Sunbed and sectional options, which allow you to create your own custom shapes and layouts.

Cushions and Headrests

For added comfort, you can get a headrest pillow or seat cushion. These are made from marine-grade fabric and are designed to resist any mold, sun damage, or fading due to water exposure.

Luxurious Pool Furniture

If you already have a pool, you can visit the Ledge Lounger site. If you don’t have a pool yet, now is the perfect time to start planning. Pools by Design can customize every element from water features to in-pool and patio furniture and we will ensure you absolutely love your backyard.

Using Travertine Around Your Pool

When you work with Pools by Design to create your custom pool or spa, we make sure to consider not only the swimming area itself, but everything around it. We can completely transform your outdoor living space. We take every element into account and design a truly beautiful and functional yard. One element to consider is your pool decking. The appearance of your deck can impact how your pool will look. This is also an important consideration since you will walk over this surface every time you want to swim or relax poolside. Travertine pavers are one of the best options for both form and function.

Here are some of the benefits of using travertine around your pool or spa:

Beautiful, Customizable Appearance

Travertine stonework creates a classic aesthetic for your pool area. Even better, it is incredibly customizable. You can choose different colors, sizes, and shapes for these natural stone tiles. Whether you pick one color or use a mix of different hues, it is sure to look gorgeous. We can help you coordinate your travertine decking with your pool finish or tiles to create a cohesive design.

Durability

Travertine pavers, which is the variety used for outdoor applications such as a pool decking, are incredibly durable. They withstand sun exposure and heat, which is especially important in Tucson. The thick stone isn’t damaged by rocks, furniture, or extreme weather, so you can trust that it will last for years to come.

Cool to the Touch

If you’ve been swimming in Arizona, you’ve probably experienced running across hot pavement barefoot as quickly as possible to get into your pool. Travertine solves this problem. The material reflects heat and absorbs the lower temperature of the ground below. This makes the surface cool to the touch, even on hot summer days.

Slip-Resistant

Travertine pavers have a porous surface that absorbs any water that splashes onto it. As a result, there aren’t any puddles around your pool that you can slip on. This is especially beneficial if you have young children.

Easy to Add

Another benefit of this building material is that it is relatively easy to add, even after your pool is finished. This means that you can have a small pool deck to start and you can expand later if you choose. This allows you to allocate more of your budget for the other features you would like.

Design Your Dream Backyard

If you want to transform your backyard, we can design your landscape and other outdoor living features, from outdoor kitchens to firepits and more. We make sure to consider every last detail so your yard is exactly how you imagined it. We also use state-of-the-art design software so you can get a better idea of how the final result will look.

Ready to Start Building?

If you are ready to create a custom pool and spa, we can start the process with a free consultation. We will go over the features that are available. This includes travertine paver decking, pool automation, in-floor cleaning and circulation, and much more. When you choose Pools by Design, we make sure that your new pool and the surrounding area looks great and functions seamlessly.

An Update on How COVID-19 Affects Pool Building

If you want to have a new custom swimming pool for the summer, it is best to start the pool building process as early as possible. However, the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has introduced new concerns for homeowners who were ready to build a custom pool. At Pools by Design, we are continuing to monitor this situation closely. We are following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as local, state, and federal regulations. We remain open with some modifications to our operation. These changes have been implemented to protect the health of our community, clients, and employees.

We believe that our business is especially important as families in Arizona are being asked to reduce outside contact with no access to gyms and other public facilities. A pool, spa, or hot tub in your backyard is an ideal way for your family to focus on health and wellbeing.

To provide more information on pool construction and COVID-19, we’ve attached two resources from the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA):

PHTA Letter to Officials

PHTA COVID-19 Notice

How we are handling the current situation:

Virtual Pool Building Consultations

If you are a current client or are considering building a new pool or spa, our team is available for virtual consultations via Zoom. This allows us to start planning for pool construction before the summer swimming season. These meetings will be the same as they would be if we held them in our office. They will cover design options, financial considerations, and any other questions you may have about your new pool.

Pool Construction

We are sensitive to current stay-at-home orders and have implemented safety practices that all of our employees and construction contractors must follow. Our pre-construction meetings, as well as the construction process itself, will take place outdoors in your backyard. This allows us to proceed with creating your pool while following social distancing guidelines to keep you safe. The airflow outdoors greatly reduces the risk of transmission. We also ensure that anyone who is experiencing symptoms does not come to our work sites.

Essential Business

We are considered an essential business under Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s executive order. As a result, we are still open and able to construct your new pool. We are taking all necessary precautions and moving to virtual meetings when possible. This allows us to keep you safe while still starting the process of creating your dream pool and having you swimming by summer.

Please Reach Out With Any Questions

Your safety is our utmost priority. If you have been considering becoming a pool owner but are concerned about how Coronavirus may affect these plans, we are here to help you navigate this process. Although this is a unique situation, we are committed to providing excellent customer service and beautiful pools for our clients. As long as we are able to safely do so, we will continue to operate and make any necessary adjustments. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out and we will be happy to assist you.

How Pool Automation Works

Having your own custom pool or spa is a luxury that not everyone can enjoy. This experience can be even better with state-of-the-art systems and features that make maintaining and using your pool easier. We can add Pentair’s IntelliCenter to your new custom pool. This pool automation system will allow you to manage nearly every aspect of your pool’s operation with scheduled or manual start and stop times.

More information on how this automation system works: 

What the Pool Automation Systems Includes

The IntelliCenter system allows you to control various equipment and functions using your smartphone.

This includes:

Pool

You can turn the pool filter, pump, and heater on or off manually or set a schedule for when these should run. There are also multiple options for programming the speed and flow of the pump. You can also set the pool water temperature and even pre-heat the pool before you plan to swim.

Spa

Turning your spa pump, heater, or jets on is easier with this system. Like your pool, you can choose the ideal temperature for the ultimate comfort and convenience.

Water Features

Your pool’s water features, such as fountains, can be connected to the IntelliCenter so you can turn them on or off with the touch of a button. You can customize features, lights, and pool temperature all together so everything is exactly the way you would like it. This is great if you are having a party or relaxing with your family.

Pool Lights

With our pool automation system, you won’t need to fumble around in the dark to turn your pool lights on. You can activate individual lights or groups of lights. If you are using IntelliBrite light-emitting diode (LED) lights, you can even control the color and create preset light shows to entertain your family and guests. There are some light shows that are already programmed into the system. These include Romance, Party, Royalty, Caribbean, Sunset, and others.

Pool Chemistry

Maintaining proper water chemistry is one of the most important maintenance tasks to keep your pool or spa clean and safe for use. When you install this automation system, keeping each chemical at the proper level is simple. The IntelliChem system monitors pH and sanitizer levels then automatically adds more when necessary. This means you don’t need to handle the harsh chemicals yourself and can save money on upkeep costs because the system only uses the amount of compounds that are necessary.

Learning to Use the IntelliCenter Pool Automation System

Although Pentair’s system can control so many aspects of your pool and spa, it is simple to learn how to use. When we build a new pool using this feature, you will receive a user’s manual as well as guidance from us on how to make sure it is operating properly. If you have any questions after installation, we are available to help you.

Build a Custom Pool With State-Of-The-Art Features

Pool maintenance doesn’t have to be a chore and when you choose Pools by Design, you have the option to add many features that keep your pool running perfectly with minimal effort. During every step of the process, we focus on both form and function, so you can get the most out of your custom pool.

Contact us today to discuss building a new pool or spa with cutting-edge automation technology.

Managing Pool Water Level

Your pool water level should be at the midpoint of your pool skimmer’s opening. This allows the skimmer to pull debris from your pool’s surface effectively. Too much or too little water can lead to costly repairs.

Here is what you should know about water levels and how to make your maintenance easier: 

If Your Water Level is Too High

Your water level may rise due to very heavy rain or if you overfilled your pool. If this is the case, floating debris will not be able to get into the skimmer. This can lead to dirty water. Your filtration system will also be less efficient. In general, a high pool water level is a much less common and less serious issue than a low level.

You can usually wait for the water level to drop naturally, which happens fairly quickly due to splashing while you swim and evaporation. If you need to speed up the process, you can attach a pool hose to your filter, lead the hose to an open area, and set the filter to “drain.”

If Your Water Level is Too Low

Since using your pool and natural evaporation lead to less water over time, a low water level is a common problem. It can cause a great deal of damage because your filter system may suck in air. If the level is low for too long, you may even need to replace your pool pump, its motor, or other parts.

During the swimming season, you should check your water level daily. If you notice it dropping below the midpoint of the skimmer, turn off your pool filter and add some water with a hose. If there are issues with the water level even when you aren’t using the pool, you should also check the filtration system for leaks.

An Easier Way to Manage Your Pool Water Level

Pool maintenance can take a lot of time and effort. Luckily, Pools by Design offers state-of-the-art features. These include an automatic fill system, which senses the water level in your pool and keeps it constant by adding or draining water as necessary. There is no hassle for you and you don’t need to keep an eye on the water level every day like you would without this system. We always add this feature to our standard pools.

Luxury Pools With Easier Maintenance

At Pools by Design, we build luxurious pools that not only look gorgeous but also are built with features that make your life as a pool owner easy. We know you want to enjoy your pool and relax with your family, not spend all of your time on maintenance. Our options include automatic fill systems, in-floor cleaning and circulation, a poolside chlorinator, and more.

Benefits of Pebble Tec Pool Finishes

Pebble Technology (Pebble Tec) makes gorgeous pool finishes to enhance the look and feel of your custom pool or spa. These finishes use small rocks mixed with cement to create a natural texture and appearance. Pebble Tec pools are durable and beautiful and this finish is a great choice for your custom swimming pool. 

Some of the benefits of Pebble Tec pool finishes:

Natural Aesthetic

Your pool design should match your home’s architecture, integrate with your landscape design, and reflect your unique personality. A natural design can beautifully complement the Arizona desert around your home and a Pebble Tec pool finish is a great way to achieve this. The bottom of your pool will look similar to a river bed, contributing to an inviting and tranquil aesthetic. 

Choice of Colors

Pebble Tec finishes come in a variety of colors, so you can pick the one that best fits your needs. You can choose a bright, stunning blue or a collection of beiges that mimic the sand on a beach. Matching your pool finish to any tiles you use in your design can create a lovely pop of color that helps your pool stand out. 

Slip-Resistant Texture

You want your swimming experience to be perfect, and this should include how the finish feels. Pebble Tec’s textured surface feels more luxurious than plaster. It’s also slip-resistant, which means you can use it for your hot tub or spa to make getting in and out safer. 

Durability

One of the reasons Pebble Tec is a top choice for pool owners is that these finishes are incredibly durable. Standard plaster can degrade over time when exposed to pool chemicals such as chlorine. It can also have trouble standing up to the heat in a spa. Pebble Tec withstands higher temperatures and is more resistant to chemical wear and tear. 

Long-Term Savings

When you choose which features to include in your new pool, you should consider not only what it costs upfront but also how much money you will spend for maintenance. Pebble Tec pools may cost slightly more at first, but your finish will look better for longer compared to plaster. Plaster lasts anywhere from 5-10 years whereas Pebble Tec can last more than 20 years with proper maintenance. 

The Pools by Design Difference

Pebble Tec finishes are one of many features that Pools by Design can add to your custom pool. These improve how your pool looks and functions to create the ultimate luxury experience. They can also save you money on energy and long-term maintenance. We are committed to quality and work with the best brands in the industry, including Pebble Tec, to offer each client more options for their pools. 

Design Your Custom Pool or Spa

If you are ready to take your backyard to the next level, we can help. We work with you to create a unique custom pool, spa, and outdoor living features that you and your family can enjoy for years to come.

A Beginner’s Guide to Pool Chemicals

Once you’ve built a custom swimming pool, there are some tasks you should perform to keep it clean and ready to use. Although maintenance may seem overwhelming at first, it doesn’t have to be. One of the most important tasks is keeping pool chemicals balanced.

Note that you should always add pool chemicals one at a time as mixing them can be very dangerous. You should also follow any guidelines on the packages of individual chemicals you are adding, including wearing gloves and eye protection as required. 

These are the chemicals you will need to balance in a traditional chlorine swimming pool:

Pool Chemicals You Add on a Schedule

You should add these sanitizing chemicals on a regular basis: 

Chlorine

Chlorine is the chemical most people think of when it comes to swimming pools. You add it in a stabilized form and it kills bacteria by breaking down the fats in their cell walls. Three parts per million (ppm) is the ideal concentration for pool chlorine. To maintain this level, you should plan to add more every 3-7 days while testing your water to ensure it is in the ideal range. 

To make adding chlorine easier and protect your pool’s equipment, our QuikDekClor tool is a great choice. We install this poolside to make adding new tablets easy. The system regulates water flow around the chlorine to keep its concentration at an optimal level. 

Pool Shock

Although you can add pool shock as needed after parties, storms, or heavy swimming, you should also plan to add it based on a set schedule. Once a week is better if you swim often, once every other week is fine for most pool owners, and once a month is a good minimum goal for shocking. Depending on your pool, you can use calcium hypochlorite (cal hypo), sodium dichlor, or a non-chlorine shock.

Pool Chemicals You Add as Needed

It is recommended to test your pool’s water 2-3 times a week for pH, weekly for alkalinity, and monthly for other levels. 

If anything is outside of the recommended range, you may need to add the following: 

Alkalinity Balancers

Total alkalinity (TA) is related to your pool’s pH and keeping this in a good range can make balancing pH easier. This should measure 80-120 ppm. If it is below 80, you can add sodium bicarbonate. One pound per 10,000 gallons increases TA by 10 ppm. If your TA is above 120, you can add dry acid. Two pounds per 10,000 gallons decreases the level by 10 ppm. 

pH Balancers

pH is the overall balance of acids and bases (specific types of chemical compounds) in your pool. It is important for sanitation and to ensure other pool chemicals work as intended. 7.2-7.5 is ideal. Soda ash can increase the pH by 0.2 for every 6 ounces added to 10,000 gallons of water. Sodium bisulfate or muriatic acid is ideal for decreasing pH. For these, you should follow manufacturer instructions. 

Calcium Hardness

200-400 ppm is the recommended calcium concentration for your swimming pool. If you need to raise this level, you can use one pound of a calcium hardness increaser per 10,000 gallons to increase the level by 8 ppm. If the level is too high, there are a few different ways to adjust it. One method is to add a flocculant to get rid of free-floating calcium. You would then vacuum the pool, backwash the filter, and add fresh water. Keeping other chemicals balanced is also a good way to keep calcium hardness under control. 

Cyanuric Acid

Cyanuric acid (CYA), also called chlorine stabilizer, is a chemical that keeps chlorine from being degraded too quickly by the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. This is especially important in sunny Arizona. The ideal level is 30-40 ppm. If it is low, you should add more CYA according to manufacturer instructions. If it is too high, you may need to drain your pool slightly and add fresh water to dilute it.

Make Maintenance EAsy With Pools by Design

While you will still need to do some work to keep your pool chemically balanced, adding high-quality features can make the process much simpler. For example, a state-of-the-art pump and circulation system distributes chemicals consistently around your whole pool, not just at the top. When you work with Pool by Design, we will make sure to discuss not only how you want your pool to look, but also how to keep your pool looking and working its best for years to come.

The Advantages of Choosing Master Pool Builders

A custom pool is an investment that you and your family can enjoy for years to come. Choosing the right pool company for the job is essential. There are many factors to consider and one element that can set a builder apart is membership in the Master Pools Guild. This exclusive organization is made up of the finest swimming pool builders whose service, design, and attention to detail are consistently outstanding. Pools by Design is the only member of the Master Pools Guild in Tucson, AZ. This makes us an excellent choice to design and build your new pool.

Why you should work with a Master Pool builder: 

What is the Master Pools Guild?

A small group of independent pool builders and craftsmen founded the Master Pools Guild in 1962. Their goal was to work together to improve their pool designs and grow with the industry. Members cooperate with one another to address challenges. This helps ensure that we build the best pools possible.

This group is invitation-only and builders are meticulously hand-chosen to join. Each member is a local expert in the pool building industry and must have a commitment to continuous education and improvement. The Master Pools Guild also considers professionalism, quality of construction, design style, attention to detail, superior customer service, and the ability to build strong relationships with contractors and vendors.

Exclusive Technology

One of the major benefits of hiring a Master Pool builder is access to exclusive technology. These features can improve the function of your pool. For example, Pools by Design can install a TurboClean system. This is a special type of A&A in-floor cleaning and circulation system designed specifically for members of the Master Pools Guild.

Commitment to Innovative Pool Design

The pool industry is constantly evolving and you should choose a pool builder that is committed to keeping up with new trends. Members of the Master Pools Guild strive to use the most innovative technology to create modern pool designs that have outstanding form and function. This means that instead of getting a pool that relies on outdated technology and design principles, you get the very best the industry has to offer.

Consultants Around the Globe

The Master Pools Guild acts as a network of highly-skilled builders who support one another when faced with any challenges. Members can request input from other companies in the guild who act as consultants to help find the best solution. No matter what arises during the design or construction of your pool, we are prepared to rise to the challenge.

How an In-Floor Pool Cleaner Works

Regular pool maintenance helps you get the most out of your custom pool. Luckily, there are many features that make this process easier. One is an in-floor pool cleaner and circulation system. At Pools by Design, we use A&A’s innovative TurboClean system, which is made exclusively for members of the Master Pools Guild. Adding this high-quality technology to your swimming pool is a great choice to keep your water pristine.

How the A&A cleaning and circulation system works:

Pool Circulation

Water in your pool moves through drains and skimmers to get to the pool pump, which acts as the heart of your pool. The pump pushes water through your pool filter to remove debris. Next, the water goes through a chlorinator. The location of this part varies depending on your pool. Finally, the pool’s returns cycle the water back into the swimming area.

In a traditional system, water only circulates at the very top of your pool. This means that areas at the bottom of the pool may have stale, unmoving water that the system has not properly filtered or chlorinated. This can lead to algae growth and dirty water.

The TurboClean system is expertly designed so that water cycles throughout your whole pool using multiple returns on your pool’s floor. It also includes the QuikDekClor which is a more efficient chlorinator that is located separately from other equipment. This is to prevent corrosion. The result is cleaner water in every part of your pool, not just at the top.

Automatic Pool Cleaner

A&A’s TurboClean system includes cleaning jets that are discreetly placed in the floor of your pool. When they are not activated, they blend in with the pool’s finish. When active, they pop up slightly and release a strong stream of water to push any debris toward your pool skimmer. The full A&A system also includes the QuikSkim and LeafVac, two elements that work together to remove debris more efficiently. This results in much less work for you to keep your pool clean.

Additional Pool Maintenance

Even with the A&A system, you may find it helpful to add a robotic pool cleaner. These move around the floors and sides of your pool to vacuum leaves and other small items. If you do not like the look of a robotic pool vacuum, you can also vacuum manually. This is relatively simple and with the TurboClean circulation and in-floor cleaning system, you will need to vacuum less than you would with standard circulation.

Install an In-Floor Pool Cleaner

At Pools by Design, we are committed to giving you the pool of your dreams. Our design team can add water features and other elements to help your pool stand out visually. However, we know that aesthetics are only part of owning a pool. During your design consultation, we will help you decide if you want to add additional features. Options include the TurboClean circulation and cleaning system. This feature can help keep your pool swim-ready with minimal effort.
