Dear Customers

The safety and health of our customers is our highest priority. Starbright Pools is committed to helping our customers maintain clean and healthy pool and spa water.

During this difficult period, Starbright Pools has chosen to keep our pool service business open to serve all of our customers. Here at Starbright Pools, we believe it is our responsibility to do our part in maintaining the public health during this crisis.

Standing water can pose major health risks to pool and spa owners. Proper pool servicing and maintenance is vital to make sure our customer’s pool and spa water does not become overwhelmed by bacteria and algae. Bacteria and algae can open the door to additional problems such as Malaria, E. coli, Zika and West Nile viruses.

In order to better protect our customers, Starbright Pools has chosen to increase our pool and spa cleaning servicing. We will also do our best to provide all of our customers the latest information from local agencies and the CDC.

During this difficult time Starbright Pools will continue to prioritize the health and safety of our customers. Our pool cleaning and maintenance services will continue to be available to our customers, providing the services required to maintain safe water and healthy pool conditions.

Even though State, Federal and Local governments are asking citizens to “shelter in place” as a result of the Corona-virus outbreak, swimming pools and spas still require regular maintenance in order to maintain proper chemical balance and prevent waterborne diseases and illnesses.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that the SARS-CoV-19 virus is not transmittable in water.

“There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools or hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”

If you would like more information, please visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/water.html.

California businesses, including hotels, motels, schools, gyms, water parks and resorts are required to have their pool and spa chemicals checked daily. It is very important, especially when pools and spas are closed, and staff is reduced, that all water features are properly serviced and maintained. This logic is also true when it comes to weekly servicing for residential pools.

How much can you do while under the “Shelter in Place” ordinance?

This ordinance allows you to leave your home to perform “essential services”, which includes product deliveries and sanitation services along with any essential business or residential operations. When it comes to maintaining pools and spas, this can be accomplished while keeping with the recommended social distancing.

Governor Gavin Newsom’s State-wide “Shelter in Place” Order

On March 19, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued a statewide order exempting individuals “needed to maintain continuity of operations of the federal critical infrastructure sectors.”

Only a small group of businesses were listed in the initial report as essential services, exempt from the order. However, the State of California eventually followed the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During COVID-19 Response. This report governs what industries, services, and workers are considered exempt and critical from the “Shelter in Place” order.

The California Pool & Spa Association believes the order provides pool service and maintenance guidance.

Here is a link to the full article.

FAST *SAFE* WON’T HARM YOUR TILE

First we drain the water about 8 – 10″ below the tile. Then we clean the tile using
Environmentally Safe glass beads, which are sprayed at the tile using low air
pressure. The calcium buildup is destroyed, leaving the tile surface
beautiful again but without damage. The glass beads settle to the bottom of the
pool, where they are vacuumed out. The final step is to apply a polish to your
freshly cleaned tile. This polish will give your tile that “wet look” and your tile will
shine like new. This process will also help delay the buildup of calcium in the future. After the polish, the procedure is complete… leaving the pool and spa area crystal clean and ready to swim in!

You will find the whole procedure to be quick and very inexpensive when compared to the alternatives.

The 3 Keys to a Hot Tub Sale
by Cailley Hammel

The door to your store swings open. The familiar chime from the door sensor rings through the air, instinctively pulling your eyes to the entryway. You see someone standing there, looking curiously at the hot tubs on your floor.

This person could be your next hot tub sale. Are you prepared?

When it comes to hot tub sales expertise, it’s hard to beat Juliet Phelps. Co-owner of Ajax Pool and Spa in the competitive Aspen, Colo., market, Phelps has decades of spa sales under her belt and has won 13 Jacuzzi International Design Awards in a row.

How is she so successful? From sale to installation, she keeps three things in mind: trust, value and excitement.

We chatted with Phelps about these steps and how they lead to better sales in a spa store.  – Read More.

As with most news regarding the drought in California, the latest California drought update is both reassuring and a bit concerning. The good news is clear to most of the state – the fact that it has finally started to rain. After much hand wringing and worry that El Nino would fizzle out before doing the state any good, storms have begun hitting both Northern and Southern California with considerable force. Both rainfall and snowfall levels are now approaching or surpassing average levels thanks to the fresh influx of moisture, and if this level of rainfall continues it will go a long way to put a significant dent in the state’s water deficit.
california drought update
 
This influx of rain doesn’t come without a price however, as after even just a few days of rainfall many in California are already beginning to worry about the quite real possibility of flooding. The combination of a lack of preparations, dry conditions, and the damage done by wildfires over the years is volatile enough to threaten widespread flooding all over the state. Southern California especially stands at the most risk, and in fact in several locations both flooding and mud slides have already begun. It is important to take steps to protect yourself and your home in this time, such as clearing gutters and spillways to ensure proper drainage. Pool maintenance is another crucial step, such as making sure that pools are tightly covered to keep out debris and that all covers are properly maintained so they are not damaged by high winds.
 
It is also important to keep in mind that the current rainfall does not guarantee that California is in the clear when it comes to the drought. It is a good sign that the state is receiving rain and that it looks like El Nino is just getting started, but even one heavy rainy season will not erase the water deficit that California has accumulated. It is crucial to stay vigilant on both water savings as well as to be aware of the regulations that may be passed in regards to pools throughout the state. The CPSA is still hard at work monitoring all of the agendas of cities, counties, and water districts throughout California to ensure that no harmful restrictions are passed, and we encourage our members to stay aware and act as an additional line of defense. The pool industry needs you.  More Information

The Neptune Pool

central coast pools

An amazing Central Coast Pool is perched on a mountaintop overlooking the Pacific Ocean in beautiful California, the Hearst Castle remains one of the world’s most spectacular sites. Among its many magnificent appointments, the Neptune Pool is arguably the most photographed and famous swimming pools in modern history.

I joined Dr. William N. Rowley in mid-December on a sunny day with his colleague and longtime collaborator, Patricia Soto, for a behind-the-scenes tour of the pool and the catacombs beneath it, something the public never sees. Bill and Patricia were there as part of an ongoing effort to renovate portions of the massive pool, which is currently empty.

Bill is uniquely qualified for the work due in part to a prior project he engineered several years ago in Santa Monica, Calif. The project was known as the Marion Davies pool, which was part of a private estate Hearst built for his mistress and longtime companion. The pool and out-building were all that remained of the original estate, designed by Julia Morgan, the architect responsible for Hearst Castle.

Bill took the long-abandoned pool and restored it to its original beauty. The site is now known as the Annenberg Community Beach House and serves as a public park and aquatic center – read more.

In light of the unusual winter expected this year, we wanted to cover a few things regarding your El Nino Pool Preparation, as service may be altered during these times.

  • During windy weather, the normal amount of time will be spent on servicing your pool. Please keep in mind that it is our goal to clean your pool as quickly as possible, but it could take 2-3 visits to remove all the leaves from the pool.
  • During rainy weather, service may be reduced to checking chemicals and emptying both pump and skimmer baskets and service may happen on an alternate day in the same week if the other days are not raining.
  • Depending on how hard it is raining a judgement call will be made by StarBright Pools whether to reduce service to chemical check only or not.
  • In extreme cases when rain is very heavy or there is thunder and lightning causing unsafe conditions, service may be cancelled for that week. Your cooperation and understanding is appreciated during inclement weather.

If you would like our assistance with anything, please let us know by calling 916-878-1050 or emailing us at star@starbrightpools.com and we’ll be happy to assist.

Please let us know if you have any special requests or questions.
