Ann Arbor Pool Builders Cover Pump

Little giant pool cover pumps for seasonal maintenance


It is a beautful day today  here in Ann Arbor, Michigan. A good time to get  water off your inground  pool cover during the Michigan warm weather this week.  It is almost 50 degrees here in Ann Arbor, Michigan with beautiful sunny skies.   The video shows one of  the  automatic pool pumps that  we like and give it a thumbs up.  We have sold several automatic  pool covers here in   Michigan and have found that this cover pump is top on our list. This  Little Giant cover pump has a  1/3 HP  -1800 GPH. It  pushes the water out fast.

Many  Midwest and Michigan Pool Builders use this  multi purpose inground pool cover pump. It has some really nice features. The pool cover pump removes standing water from pool covers and ideal for household water transfer applications. Removable intake screen for easy cleaning and maintenance. Built in handle for portability and ease in placement and removal. 3/4 ” garden hose connection and 25′ power cord. Integrated float switch for reliable automatic operation. activates in 2″ water.

That a good amount of water for a pool cover pump. Little giant pool pumps have  been a leader in the pool pump industry.

Inground Pool Pump Cover Operation Tips on the youtube video.

(1)  Place pump on cover when  your pool is closed ( 2) Make sure cover is plugged in a  GFCI electric outlet. (3) Place pump where  water creates the deepest puddles on the cover. (3) Have hose running off pool deck into yard draining away from pool off the downhill grade. (4)

Michigan Pool Builder in South Lyon

Here we go. Another very happy customer located in South Lyon Michigan. This customer did his homework and then some before he decided to sign a contract with just any pool builder here in Michigan.
This is the way we like it. His boss had a free form inground pool done by us about four years ago. He stated that we did a really great job and would work with us again.We also extended our customers warranties to give a better warranty than other pool builders do. We have an extended warranty plan at no charge.
A big bonus when you work with us.
Word of mouth goes along way with our company after our family pool business stated here in Michigan in 1965. Our design, references and several gold awards from the association of pool and spa professionals set us apart from the rest. We also have a Play & Pay It back fundraising program to help children’s hospitals here in Michigan. We would be happy to show you what we can do for you to build your backyard pool and landscape project this season.

Pool and Patio Design for South Lyon Customers

Pool and Patio design in south lyon

I am happy to say that our new pool customers in South Lyon are very excited to get going on the pool and landscape design build project this spring. They helped us create the deck layout today. Today, they viewed a few cad drawings to help keep within their budget.
Customer feedback is a key to success and it engages a great synergy between the pool designer and customer.

After all these years, we seem to get better and better at pool , patio and landscape design. Our many years of pool building and design gives us the edge above the rest. Our awards and honors speak loudly in our pool design process.
Making a nice traffic flow around the deck is one key. Not cutting corners on the landscape design shows off the work when completed.
The customers specifications and a birds eye view of each project is where we start. We ask the questions and find out the budget . Az Pools uses computer design so the changes are simple when we need to extend or shorten an area for the pool deck.
Az pools really knows that the best way to start the design process is to first get the shape and size of the pool. Then, we move forward with the hardscape patio area around the pool.
I had my landscape designer go out to the South Lyon site yesterday and shoot some grades to get the measurements needed to start the pool cad design process. The concrete patio area needs to have a nice area and flow around the pool to fit some lounge chairs and a round patio umbrella table on the deck . Our goal is to enrich your lifestyle and design an outdoor living space that suits the customers taste and lifestyle.
