The Building Construction Process Explained

If you want to learn about the construction process and the steps that are taken to complete a project, you should read my blog. My name is Darren White and I've always been fascinated by the way that a construction crew can erect a building so fast. I work in an industrial park and there's always new buildings being built and I see the progress every day. A few months ago, I was at a neighborhood picnic and I started talking to a neighbor that lived down the street. It just so happened that he was a contractor that worked on the buildings in the industrial park. I asked him how the construction crew could build a huge building so quickly and he explained the whole process to me. That's when I had the idea to write a blog to explain the building process to others who are also interested.

Two Reasons To Open Your Pool In Spring Instead Of Summer

by Edwin Johnston

Having an in-ground pool on your property comes along with numerous advantages. However, being a pool owner can sometimes be challenging, particularly when it comes to determining exactly when to open your pool for the season. Some pool owners prefer to wait until the summer season has arrived before opening their pool, but this isn't always the best choice. Opening your pool in the spring might serve to be a better option.  


During the spring season, pollen is a significant problem for allergy sufferers. It can also wreak havoc on an in-ground pool. If your pool water is not in circulation during this period, loads of pollen buildup can collect in the water. Oftentimes, pool covers have small holes designed in them that allow the water to breathe. These holes also serve as an entry point for pollen accumulation.

When your pool's pump is in operation, the pollen is pumped from the water at an almost ongoing basis. When it's not in operation, you are only allowing a great deal of pollen to build up in the pool's water. At this point, once you finally turn on the pump, it will be forced to work harder and longer to remove the buildup, which ultimately leads to greater wear. Even if the spring temperatures aren't inviting for water play, having your pool in operation can help.


If you've ever seen algae in a pool, you know firsthand that it is not a pretty sight. Unfortunately, it doesn't just look bad, but it can also cause damage to your pool's filter and structural damage to your pool's surface walls. Operating your pool before temperatures get too hot can help you avoid this problem. Sunny, warm weather serves as the perfect condition for algae to reproduce itself rapidly.

If you wait until the start of summer to get your pool open, your pool's water has likely been exposed to higher temperatures for some time. The longer you wait to clean your pool and get it swim ready during these higher temperatures, the greater the chance of algae growth. Between the pool's pump and professional water treatments, if you get your pool operational in the spring, before temperatures get too high, this can all be avoided.

While quality construction is important when it comes to maintaining an in-ground pool, how well you take care of your pool is even more important. Make sure you are getting your pool swim ready in a timely manner to avoid issues.
