In-Ground Liner Replacement Safety Covers Installation and More - A-Pro Services is a swimming pool, spa, and hot tub repair company based in Oklahoma City. Our primary business is the sale, installation, and replacement of swimming pool safety covers and in-ground vinyl liners. Our goal is to provide the finest products of their kind in the world, and excellent professional installation by people who care about the end result. Because:
It's not just a pool... It's Your pool!
After 30 years in the business, you would think that replacing a swimming pool liner would be pretty routine, and in a way, I suppose it is. But not really. I long ago lost count of how many liners I have personally installed, but, the truth is, each new liner is different from the one before, and each becomes my "baby" from the time it is measured, until it is installed. We take great pride in the vinyl liner manufacturers we deal with, because their precise manufacturing allows us to have that perfect fit we are known for. We have the privilege to work directly with some of the best manufacturers in the United States, so that we can offer top quality American made products at reasonable prices. We take the time to measure and install your new liner properly, and include all new faceplates, gaskets, and main drain covers with each liner installation. Because of this, we may not be the lowest estimate you get, but the final price will not be more than the estimate. We can get cheap liners, too, but, in most cases, it is not your best buy.
Swimming pool safety covers are great for keeping debris out of the pool, and can even be used on the pool during the spring and fall, when there are a lot of leaves and debris falling, but the pool needs to have circulation - like the dreaded cottonwood that blows around. But at A-Pro Services, our emphasis for safety covers focuses on the safety aspect. We sell and install safety covers that anchor securely to the apron of the pool. To maximize safety, the cover needs to fit correctly. This means that if you have a custom shaped pool, you need to have a custom cover. There are many pool shapes out there which are based on rectangles, that are so common that they use stock covers. If a stock cover fits the pool correctly, you certainly should use a stock cover. There are some companies that will sell you a stock cover for a custom pool, but these are not safety covers, and they will not last nearly as long, because the wear points are not protected properly. Custom covers are quite a bit more costly, but well worth it in the long run. Those we sell most are Loop-Loc brand, made in Hauppauge, New York. This is the brand that "holds an elephant". Many years ago, Loop-Loc demonstrated the strength of their safety covers by walking an African elephant across it. The elephant is , to this day, the company's mascot and trade mark. We have other brands, too, that cost less, but the money you can save with the lesser brands is not enough to trade for the quality, safety, and longevity of a genuine Loop-Loc. Despite the strength and security of your safety cover, remember - the best of safety covers should be your last line of defense, not the first or only!
Plain and simple, one of the best ways to get the most form your swimming pool or spa is to give it proper care and maintenance. With in-ground vinyl lined pools, this is especially true. Along with quality, correct fit and installation, proper care is the most important factor that determines how long your pool liner will last. When you choose to have A-Pro Services install your new liner, you don't have to worry about the first three things. But everyone who owns a pool should know at least the basics of pool care, even it they use a weekly pool service. In the first place, sadly, many weekly pool services do just enough to get paid. A-Pro stopped doing scheduled maintenance years ago, because, to do the job right, we couldn't make a profit, and we weren't willing to it the way you have to in order to be profitable. While there are some people who need to use a maintenance service, you still usually should spend 5 minutes per day to check your pool, even if you have someone else do the weekly cleaning.
Purchasing a new vinyl liner or safety for your pool shouldn't need to be a hassle. First, check the reputation of the company you are considering hiring with the Better Business Bureau. You want a company that is BBB accredited and has at least an A rating (you can check A-Pro's current rating by clicking the BBB logo above). If the company has ever had a complaint, look at whether (and how) the complaint was resolved. There is always someone who will complain that the sky was blue when the company came to visit, so a single complaint does not necessarily meat that the company is bad. Here's a link explaining what to expect when you choose A-Pro Services to replace your liner or install a safety cover.
Just for the sake of explanation, we refer to the concrete around an in-ground pool as the apron. When we say deck, we are referring to wooden structures, regardless of whether they are around a pool. Spas and hot tubs are often placed on wooden decks, so it is important that they are strong enough to properly support the spa evenly.
The apron around a vinyl lined pool is an important part of the pool structure, also, and is more than just a walkway. when properly constructed, aprons usually require little or no maintenance, but there are a few things to watch for, and some cosmetic upgrades that can be made, if you want to make it your own, and a few things to check from time to time.
Wooden decks need some care from time to time, not only to keep them looking nice, but to make sure they are safe and to prolong their life. Even the composite materials are not really maintenance free.
Here's a link to a page that discusses the simple things a homeowner can do to prolong the life of their deck or apron, to keep it looking good, and some safety and functional things to consider.
