Imperial Pools and Design is the top choice in Tucson, Arizona for custom pool and spa design, service, and maintenance. Our company started back in 2012 after founder Patrick Crone had been pursing a career working on aircraft as a mechanical engineer. It was his experience in engineering that helped him see an opportunity to build and service pools in the region in an efficient and innovative manner that no one else was doing. Part of this innovation is working on pools in an efficient and sustainable manner. We’ve highlighted how we approach that philosophy in the building, cleaning, and maintenance stages below.
When you choose to build your pool with our team, our designers will walk you through the design process and the design options available to bring your ideas to life. Upon installation of every new pool, our team takes care of tasks such as completing new water chemistry, program automation, walking you through your new pool, and completing final plumbing tasks to ensure life with your new pool gets off to a smooth start.
In addition to the build of the pool itself, we also offer and highly encourage solar pool heating. This is the most effective way to heat your pool and enable year-round use. Sunshine is our most abundant resource here in Arizona, with Tucson and Phoenix averaging around 200 days of sunshine a year and over 3800 hours annually. We use SolarTech™ SolarSprial™ technology to take those hours of sunshine in our region, collect the solar power where water is heated, and then return it back to the pool… EVERY pool owner in Arizona should know that the state offers a 25% tax credit on any one approved solar device or system up to a maximum of $1000. Items qualifying for this credit include solar pool heating, solar water heating, solar electric (photovaltaic), solar water pumping, and solar day lighting systems.
Keep an eye on the tile just below the coping of your pool. Over time and as the water level fluctuates a bit, you’ll notice a white ring start to form due to build up of materials such as pH, alkalinity, and high calcium concentration. Most pool service and repair companies perform a traditional method using glass beads and that require your entire pool to be drained. We do things a little differently, though.
Our advanced and cutting edge method is unique to the southern Arizona and Tucson markets. We use a mobile filtration unit that filters our unique product and saves your water. How does it work? Most of our mix is the beginning states of mine salt, not glass beads. We will only drain your pool slightly, leaving it just below the tile line. Once the tile is fully exposed, we will remove the buildup with our mix through a high pressure system. To finish the job, we use a 5 stage mobile filtration unit that extracts the particles in the white line and then return fresh water to your pool to fill it back up. We take pride in this method not only as a way to save you time and money, but to also take care of our environment and preserve natural resources valuable to the region.
By this point now, you probably get it. We’re not really about the "traditional" way of doing things in the pool business. Bringing the latest and the best to the business to serve our clients, save them money, and protect natural resources is our top priority.
What if we told you that we offer a way where you’d never have to change sand in your current pool filter ever again? AFM®, standing for Advanced Filter Material, filters water much finer that quartz or glass sand. It will lower chlorine consumption and require less secondary chlorine reaction products, leaving behind no trichloramine or chlorine smell, and is bio resistant to prevent the buildup of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. On top of all this, filter function remains at a high level for many years with AFM®. this is in comparison to traditional filters which worsen dramatically after their first 6-12 months despite frequent washing.
