Enhance your pool and landscape with LED lighting!

LED lighting for Pools and SpasLED lighting for pools and spas is becoming increasingly popular mostly due to the variety of lighting effects and colors of newer systems. The visual quality is brighter, stronger and more appealing compared to older lighting systems. Not only that, but LED light is eco-friendly as they use far less electricity and can last up to six times longer than incandescent lighting.

The real attraction of LED lighting, however is the brilliant visual appeal. The lights are able to change to suit any mood or event. Today’s best color-changing LED pool lights feature numerous light options—from static colors like blue, green, magenta, red and white to dynamic pre-programmed light shows that enhance nighttime pool-scapes with rich and vibrant colors. Plus, most allow you to also choose the speed at which the colors change, further allowing you to achieve a particular ambiance.

Choosing the particular color or light show for your pool is usually a simple process of stepping through the selections until you find your desired setting. Other systems allow you to include a dedicated controller to make choosing and programming your lights even easier and synchronize LED lights in your pool or spa.

LED lights are not only great for lighting your pool, but can be used throughout your landscape to enhance the look of your pool and surrounding area.

New Year’s resolution, no more pool-less Arizona summers!

Picture27_smDo you spend you summers listening to the neighbors splashing and having fun in their pool while you are wishing you had your own? Well why not make 2013 the year you have your own pool! Prices are down and competition is up, so it only makes sense to consider having your own custom pool built before the summer comes. Imagine hosting great bbq’s and impressing your friends/relatives coming into town from colder climates with your own sparkling custom pool. There’s never been a better time to have a pool installed and here are a few things to consider when purchasing:

1. Experience counts! – Look for pool builders that are well established. Platinum pools, for example, has been building pools for 25 years plus and is the preferred builder of many renowned home builders throughout the Southwest.

2. Beware of “too good to be true” deals – Small pool companies may offer you a great deal, but will often cut corners during the construction process which will cost you more money in the long run.

3. Pay attention to the brands! – There are many pool filters and products that are energy efficient, aimed at saving you money. Platinum pools prides itself on using top quality, and energy saving products to keep your pool running as efficient and inexpensively as possible.

4. ASK QUESTIONS! – Educate yourself online and ask as many questions as possible. Many pool companies have great ‘salesmen’ but lousy products. Make sure your pool company is one you can trust!
