Stay Cool. - July 11, 2017

The rest of this week and next week our local area has predicted temperatures in the mid 90’s. When summers temperatures increase, there are a few things to keep in mind to stay safe during the hot weather and still experience the summer fun!

Summer is synonymous with warmer temperatures, swimming, hiking and enjoying the great outdoors and these activities may draw you out during the hottest part of the day. Here are a few helpful things to keep in mind when enjoying the summer heat.   

Get out side and enjoy the outdoors but take it easy: It sounds simple, but it is easy to overexert yourself in the warmer temperatures. It’s easy for kids playing outside, outdoor labor or just relaxing outside for the heat to exhaust the body. Be aware of how your body feels and don’t push your self too hard.

Heat Cramps: This is when your muscles start to involuntary spasm throughout the body. Heat Exhaustion: headache, nausea, extreme thirst and weakness. Heat Stroke: (Extremely Serious; possible death) rapid and shallow breathing, hot/red skin, rapid heartbeat, seizures plus all the symptoms of heat exhaustion.

It’s very important to be aware of these symptoms and to recognize this sign before it’s too late. It’s recommended to find shady spot to cool down and to drink water. If you believe that it is heat stroke, immediately contact emergency services.

Stay Hydrated: Drink and have extra water on hand. Keep your body hydrated by drinking at least 8 cups of water a day and even more while enjoying the hot temperatures!

Wear White or Light-Colored Clothing: Light-colored clothing helps to reflect light and heat away from the body, allowing your body to maintain a more comfortable temperature. Clothing fabric that is breathable and loose fitting will also assist your body in regulating a lower more comfortable temperature.

Summer heat has finally arrived and looks like it will be staying for a while! Break out the sunscreen, the swimsuits and the aboveground swimming pools. This is the time that everyone desires to have refreshing water to cool off in. Here are four benefits of owning an above ground pool.

Installation:

Aboveground swimming pools are usually smaller and installation process goes smoother and faster than an in-ground swimming pool. An aboveground pool doesn’t require the extensive equipment, the large hole in the ground or the schedule to install a pool. If you are handy, have the ability to follow directions and are interested completing the install yourself, it’s doable.

Cost:

The largest difference between an inground swimming pool and an above ground swimming pool is the cost. A simpler, smaller pool will require less water care products, maintenance equipment and other pool supplies to keep your pool in swimming condition. This means a reduction in cost for installation and operation.

Features:

Aboveground swimming pools have a variety of accessories to select from like an inground pool. Some of these features are the same. Find your aboveground swimming pool with all the features you desire and so much more!

Maintenance:

Every swimming pool requires maintenance of with water care products and equipment. If your pool is smaller, than you have less required area to clean and will water care products needed will be reduced.

May normally brings our area a little more sunshine then what we’ve been experiencing. And as for the weather man, he’s predicting that we will be getting more showers and cloudy days for about the next five days. With this being said, many of us are tired of the cool weather and cannot wait for the summer sun to come out and stay.

Since it looks like we are all stuck with some rain, why not make the best of it! On rainy days, the hot tub is the perfect place to enjoy some time relaxing and enjoying the warm swirling waters. Sometimes you just have to go with whatever Mother Nature is provide. Maybe bring a warm beverage out to enjoy; like tea or a cup of coffee. And of the best ways to enhance the experience is to make sure to prepare for when you leave your hot tub. Place your favorite towels and robe into the dryer and bring them out near the tub for when you get out. But remember to keep them in an area that is protected from the rain!

Remember, even the grosses of spring days can be warmed up with a soaking in a hot tub in your own backyard.

Now is the time to schedule your Pool Opening - April 06, 2017

Spring has already been a little unpredictable! There are days where temperatures will rise to the 70’s and it’s wonderful to have the backyard ready. Family, friends and all of the children will be able to get out side, enjoy the fresh air and soak in some of the sunshine. As the weather gets even warmer, everyone will be looking for that ideal spot to cool off and this could be your backyard swimming pool. Prepare now and be ready for when the temperatures increase.

The sooner your swimming pool is opened, the less visible algae growth you’ll have. Some people like to wait till late April and May to open their swimming pools but this provides plenty of time and warmth for algae to grow. Now is the perfect time to venture out to your backyard and check on your swimming pool. Warmer weather consumes more chlorine which means it’s not there later to prevent the algae from blooming.  Opening prior to the swimming season allows time to clear up any water clarity issues before it impacts your swim time!  

If you haven’t scheduled your swimming pool opening, our Service Department’s Opening Season Schedule is first come first serve. Call in today and reserve the date you want before it’s gone!!

Snow and Ice - February 06, 2017

Over the past weekend, the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area had a few different Winter Advisories come through.

The weather systems brought tons of snow, ice and rain mixture to coat anything and everything exposed to the elements. In some areas, there was as much as 18 inches of snow.

Since we’ve had so much snow lately and the rain only makes it heavier, it may be time to go check on your hot tub. To be safe, a good snow shovel should be used to clear a safe pathway to your hot tub and around it. This path will allow you to remove all snow, ice and excess water build up.

It’s important to use a softer or foam protected item when removing snow or debris off your hot tub cover. Pool World recommends a soft bristled broom or a SnoBrum. Removing snow, built up ice and water off the cover will help to end the life of your cover. Plus it will make it easier to access your hot tub to soak.


American Heart Health - February 02, 2017

February is known as American Heart Health Month. It’s meant to increase awareness of heart disease. In the United States, Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the in men and women. One in four deaths each year has been linked to heart disease.

These frightening statistics on heart disease can be prevented by changing your lifestyle and opting for more healthy options while managing other health conditions. Here at Pool World, we have more then a few items to create your perfect backyard vacation almost every product we carry have the ability to improve your life. Hot tubs happen to be one of these items!

Hot tubs have the ability to improve your life and your heart. Did you know that soaking in a hot tub has similar as exercising? While soaking in a hot tub, the warmth of the water is slowly absorbed into your body and increases blood flow. The increased temperatures and blow flow will cause your blood vessels to dilate. An increased dilation in the blood vessels results in your blood pressure decreasing. The increased in dilation in blood vessels allow for the muscles and whole body to be more relaxed.

Come into one of our four store locations throughout Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area to find the perfect hot tub to meet your needs! If you don’t have time to visit one of our stores, please visit our Residential Hot Tubs page.

If you are interested in a hot tub, please visit our Residential Hot Tubs page. 


Winter Maintenance - January 16, 2017

The weather is warming above freezing for a few days over the next ten days. On one of the warmer days would be a perfect time to venture out to your backyard and check on your swimming pool and hot tub.

Since your swimming pool was closed during the fall, there was probably a cover placed over it to prevent debris from falling into the pool during the winter. This cover could be covered in a lot of snow and ice. If you haven’t removed any of this snow, it is recommended to use a long soft bristled broom to pull off as much of the snow as possible. Removing the snow will reduce the snow weight and will help to extend the life of the winter cover. This includes removing snow from around the pool on the decks.

If you don’t have a swimming pool but a hot tub, now’s the time to remove the snow from around the hot tub and change or clean the filters. This may only take a few moments but will make the next use more enjoyable! Cleaning your filters and doing general maintenance will also help to preserve the water in your hot tub longer.

If you have any questions about either of these recommendations, please do not hesitate to contact your local Pool World location.

Traeger Recipes for Thanksgiving - November 16, 2016

Thanksgiving is eight days away… For some of us, this is one of the most stressful times of the year. Between head counts, the turkey, sides, veggie trays, and pies, there’s a lot that has to get cooked. All at once. Only the most skilled home cooks are able to do this delicate dance successfully.

For many within our area, cooking Thanksgiving or specific items on a barbecue is a tradition that repeats year after year. Maybe this isn’t one of your traditions but if  you’re interested in trying something new, a marshmallow sweet potatoes this the perfect recipe to start with.

Sweet Potato Marshmallow Casserole

Ingredients:

5 large sweet potatoes (yams), pierced

1-1/2 sticks butter, softened

½ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

1 bag mini marshmallows

Start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open for about 5 minutes until the fire is established. Once the fire is lit, set the grill at 375 degrees F and close the lid and allow to preheat for 10 minutes.

Pierce the skin of the yams with a fork a few times. Place on a baking sheet or foil tin inside the Traeger and let roast for 50 minutes or until extremely softened. When soft peel the skin by hand and place in a deep baking dish.

With a stiff whisk whip together 1 stick butter, brown sugar, vanilla, salt and pepper. Smooth out the top layer and sprinkle with marshmallows.

Dot the rest of the butter over the top of the casserole.

Place back the Traeger for 15 minutes until warm and the marshmallows are golden.

Halloween Safety Tips - October 28, 2016

Halloween is Monday! It’s an evening filled with ghouls, witches, super heroes and princesses. Every Halloween has terrifying statistics that children and adults are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed. A large factor in this is due to the dark clothing, masks and the increased amount of pedestrians walking from house to house. Since the probability of being injured is more than doubled, here are a few recommendations on having a safe, fun filled night!

  • Make sure costumes fit properly and will not be a tripping hazard.
  • Ensure that all accessories or props with costumes are dull and cannot puncture; they should be short, soft and flexible. Any toy guns, swords or weapons should be left at home.
  • Choose face paint and make up over a mask. This will allow children and adults to have unobstructed vision.
  • Supervise of children under the age of 12 while trick-or-treating, older children should stay in groups and should have an established curfew. They should be expected to stick to a route.
  • Remind your children to trick-or-treat only well-lit houses with front doors that may be viewed from the street. This includes instructing the kids never to enter any home.
  • Inspect all candy before allowing children to eat it. Avoid handmade treats.

If you are partaking in Halloween adult events and bubbly concoctions, please remember to designate a driver or call a cab. Monday with the increased foot traffic, it’s not worth the risk.

For all of you adults, who will be adventuring out with your goblins and ghouls, just remember at the end of the night you will have your warm and ready hot tub to climb into after the trick-or-treating is over. Climb in, relax and warm up!

Pool Closing Season - September 13, 2016

As fall approaches with cooler temperatures, it’s time to start thinking about closing the swimming pool. If this is a task that you prefer to hire out, please call our Service Department as soon as possible at 1(800)876-4340. Appointments are first come first serve.

In our region it’s a necessity to winterize your swimming pool in order to protect it from freeze damage. Making sure to close your swimming pool properly also has the ability to make your spring opening go a lot smoother.

Balance your swimming pool water about 4 to 7 days prior to closing your pool is the highest priority other than blowing out the lines of the pool. The week allows you with plenty of time to make any water chemistry adjustments before closing your pool. Preparing the swimming pool chemistry prior to closing is slightly higher then normal operating levels. Ideal closing chemistry is having your pools ph at 7.6-7.8, pool alkalinity above 125ppm, calcium hardness above 150ppm and then shocking the swimming pool.

For more helpful tips about closing your swimming pool, please visit our How-to Worksheets & Helpful Links page.

  • During the manufacturing process of honey, bees add an enzyme that makes hydrogen peroxide which provides anti-bacterial and anti-fungal elements to honey.
  • Increased performance through boosting and maintaining a glycogen levels and is a great natural sweetener.
  • Reduce cough and throat irritation through the use of honey, especially buckwheat honey. Honey has been shown to be just as effective as a single does of dextromethorphan.
  • Blood sugar regulation is also a benefit of honey, because the honey has the exact combination of fructose and glucose works together with the body to regulate blood sugar levels. Some honey is even considered to be low hypoglycemic index.
  • Heals wounds and burns by applying honey to the surface of the wound. This has been proven to be as effective as silver sulfadiazine.
  • Probiotic, some honeys contain large amounts of friendly bacteria. These friendly bacteria’s include 6 species of lactobacilli and 4 species of bifidobactera.
  • Beautiful skin, since honey has anti-bacterial qualities and when honey is combined with other ingredients it can be moisturizing and nourishing to the skin.

Since honey has so many benefits and a variety of uses then add a little more honey into your diet through delicious recipes. If you need some ideas, please visit our Recipe of the Week page.

Fire Season - August 24, 2016

Summer has been a little abnormal this year which has helped to delay the 2016 fire season. Last year the fire season started months early and left more devastation than anyone could of prepared for.

Every year Mother Nature decides to provide with something a little different than years prior and this year she did just that!  We had cooler temperatures, wetter spring and fire season started abnormally late. No matter what type of year or weather conditions Mother Nature sends our way, there are a few things that you can do to help protect your property and home.

Protect your home Year Around:

Maintain a 100-foot clear zone around your home. It’s recommended to have a minimum of 30 feet. If you have the ability to have more, create a larger buffer.

Keep landscape pruned and off the ground. If possible cut all vegetation to be 10 feet above the ground. Remove any dead or dying trees.

Add a wildfire sprinkler system

Update old roofs to shingles with asphalt composite or a metal roof.

Keep your drive ways or pathways covered with gravel, rock, brick, or other nonflammable substances.

Move and keep woodpiles at least 100 feet away from your home. If on a hillside, keep the piles on the uphill side.

Mow grass and fields regularly, and keep it trimmed about 4 inches in height.

Remove any access debris from or below decks and porches.

Enclose all eaves and overhangs.

Make your address visible from the road. This will help firefighters and crews in case of an emergency.

Protect your home when a Wildfire is in the area:

Move all items that will burn away from your home. Put them in storage or outside of your defensible area. (Items: lawn furniture, barbecues, tarp coverings, etc.)

Shut off all natural gas, propane or fuel oil supplies at the source.

Remove debris from rain gutters and roof.

Remove any dead or dying trees and if possible, trim other trees and vegetation up to 10 feet above the ground.

Clear vegetation around fire hydrants, cisterns, propane tanks, etc.

Relocate all animals from the property to safe housing until the threat has passed.

Connect garden hoses. Fill any pools, hot tubs, garbage cans, tubs or other large containers for water.

Disconnect any automatic garage door openers but keep maintaining them for manual operation.

Place lawn sprinklers on the roof, around the property and keep any vegetation around the home wet.

Crate and pack up any “non-replaceable” items such as photos and important documents into a quick grab box. 


Delicious New Recipe - August 16, 2016

Some days it’s just too hot to cook inside. Today is one of those days if you don’t have air conditioning! This means it’s the ideal time to use your barbecue and not heat up your house more. Here is a delicious new recipe to try tonight. 

It’s sweet, tangy, sticky and has a little bit of spice. It’s Chipotle Honey Chicken Wings

Ingredients:

2 lbs chicken wings, separated into flats and drumettes

3 cans chipotles in adobo

1 tbsp honey

4 tbsp butter, unsalted

2 tbsp fresh lime juice

Traeger Blackened Saskatchewan Rub (As Needed)

Traeger Sweet Rub (As Needed)

Serving Sides:

Avocado Crema

Ranch

Blue Cheese

When you're ready to start cooking, start the Traeger on Smoke for about 5 minutes. Keep the lid open and this will allow the fire to be established. Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat with the lid close for about 15 minutes.  

Spread the chicken flats and drumettes out on a baking sheet and season them lightly on both sides with a combination of the Traeger Blackened Saskatchewan Rub and the Sweet Rub.

Place the chicken wings on the grill grate and cook for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, put the butter and chipotles into a saucepan and melt the butter over low heat.

After the butter has melted, puree the mixture in a blender or using an immersion blender. Whisk in the honey and lime juice.

Once the wings are cooked-through, transfer them to a bowl and toss with the chipotle honey-lime glaze.

Hot Tub Benefits - August 08, 2016

Fall will be here before you know it! For many people, fall can be very uncomfortable because of the way it impact their arthritis, muscle, joints, or muscle stiffness. It’s socking at how many people deal with this seasonally and how soaking in a hot tub has the ability to ease the discomfort.

Doctors commonly prescribe soaking in a hot tub to help alleviate the pain. Hot tubs have the ability to reduce the discomfort for muscle strains, sprains, and other injuries. Taking only a few moments out of your daily routine to soak in warm pulsating water has the ability to accelerate healing and reduce pain.

Experience a hot tub to see how it can relax and sooth your sore muscles after a good workout. The swirling water will wash away your daily stresses from your daily life. Or if you are looking for a better night sleep, then take 10 to 15 minutes out of your evening before bed. Soaking will help elevate your core temperature and once you’ve completed your soak, your core temperature will decrease to normal but this decrease will assist with falling into a sounder, deeper sleep.

These are just a couple ways that a hot tub could improve your daily life! Come into one of our four store locations for more information or visit our Residential Hot Tubs page.

The spectacular light show will be going on now until it peaks on the 11th and 12th. This means that until the meteor shower peaks, you should be able to see an outburst of shooting stars.

Hot Spring Hot Tub Delivery - August 01, 2016

Spokane and the Coeur d’Alene areas has experienced some hot days this summer but this hasn’t stopped hot tubbers from enjoying their backyard and preparing for cooler weather. The cooler temperatures are coming this fall will leave the perfect opportunities to enjoy a soak with your family and friends.

Recently Pool World delivered this hot tub to the Mead area. There is no better place to relax after a busy day than a hot tub in your own backyard! This family has created a spot where they can come all year long in the evenings and enjoy the warm swirling water.

The hot tub delivered is a Hot Spring Highlife Prodigy hot tub that fits 5 adults comfortably with innovative jet configurations. This unit is known for its stylish design and powerful jets that provide a superior experience. Each and every Prodigy has 22 hydrotherapy jets that circulate 290 gallons of warm pulsating jets and Luminescence multi-color LED light system. 


Swimming Pool Care After Thunderstorms - July 27, 2016

Recently our weather has been a little unpredictable! Today our area has had some rain and some thunder storms. Weather like this can turn any sparkling pool into a mess by introducing a variety of dirt, debris and other pollutants. Proper cleanup can ensure that your swimming pool will clear up quicker and you will be back to swimming in no time.

Inspect the pool equipment. Turn off all equipment including the pump. Inspect around the pump and the rest of the filtration system to verify if there is any damage. If damage has occurred, keep all equipment off until the problem can be resolved.

Sweep off any debris around the pool deck and sweep it away from the pool. This will help reduce the amount of debris that ends up in the pool.

Remove any debris out of the swimming pool. This includes all pine needs, leaves, bugs and whatever else may of blown into the water. Remember to remove any debris that may of collected in the pool equipment.

Vacuum the swimming pool once the filtration system is in full working order. Brush the pool walls, corners, and floor to remove any debris and then vacuum the pool. During the vacuuming process, the pool will become hazy and may require a second or third attempt at vacuuming once all the suspended particles settle to the floor bottom.

Test your swimming pool chemistry. The pool chemistry may have been spot on prior to the storm but that’s before rainwater, organic materials, and debris were introduced into the water. These items will consume any residual chlorine that was established in the water prior to the storm. Add enough shock to bring the chlorine level to 10.0 ppm and wait for the chlorine level to reduce to about 5.0 ppm then make any additions as needed to balance the waters pH and alkalinity.

Keeps the swimming pools circulation system running for 24 hours after shocking. Allowing the filtration system to run this long will assist to catch any particles that may be in the water.

If clarity issues occur, bring in two cups of water from elbow depth into one of our four store locations for a free water analysis.

Hot Tub Delivery - July 20, 2016

Time to add some algaecide - July 18, 2016

Do you use an algaecide in your swimming pool on a weekly basis? It not, then there are a few reasons to use an algaecide on a weekly maintenance routine.

Weekly or Bi-Weekly Maintenance Dosage: Regular usage of an algaecide helps prevent your swimming pool from turning green while providing a few benefits. While using an algaecide, the chlorine consumption is reduced which means swimmers may enjoy lower sanitizer levels. The algaecide also inhibits any build up in the filtration system which allows the life expectancy of the equipment to extend. A few other pluses are ease of use and handling and application, cost effective and widely available.

Dreaded Green Pool: Using a shock and an algaecide treatment to clear a swimming pool that has turned green is never fun! Adding a combination of a chlorine shock plus an algaecide will increase the time that it will take for the pool to clear.

When having to treat a green pool, please these helpful tips!

When having to treat a green pool, please these helpful tips!

1 Double check all of your equipment, this includes the filtration system.

2 Test pH level and adjust as needed before starting treatment. PH needs to be between 7.2-7.4.

3 Brush walls, corners, floors and around all steps, ladders and lights to help remove algae from surfaces.

4 Apply algaecide as directed on container per pool size for “Visible Algae.”

5 Superchlorinate the swimming pool as directed on container for swimming pool size. Allow the swimming pool to circulate. ( 2 lbs per every 10,000 gallons)

6 Allow the swimming pools filtration system to work for 24 to 48 hours (this includes, running the pump continuously until the water is clear). The appearance of the water should gradually improve over this time.

7 The next day, you may want to add a clarifier or flocculent to help expedite the clearing process. Clarifier’s will make the debris bigger to make it easier for your pool to remove debris and flocculents drop dead debris over night to the bottom of pool to be vacuumed ‘to waste’.

**If the pool is clear and you’ve maintained a chlorine level of 2-5 ppm, start using your normal chlorine application. If it’s clear but no chlorine is left, add a normal shock application and add normal chlorine dosage.

Water Games - July 07, 2016

Enjoy your backyard a little more this summer! A Doughboy swimming pool has hours of fun to be had! Here are a few classic games to play in the pool this summer.

Water Polo.

This game is usually played with four or six players with water volleyball or a ball safe for water use. Each team goes to opposite ends of the swimming pool and takes turns throwing the ball towards the pool ledge. Both teams will protect their ledge while staying on their half of the pool. This game is fun and active. Be prepared with a few extra balls on hand.

Sharks and Minnows.

This game is perfect for three or more players! Select one person to be the shark, where as everybody else is a minnow. The objective of the game is to reach the other side of the swimming pool without being tagged by the shark but the catch of this game is that the shark dictates when the minnows cross to the other side.

Shark in the Pool.

This game is like Red Rover and has been referenced as “Octopus.” Select one person to be the shark and they get to tag players while they are in the water. The players may get out of the pool for five seconds. Once the shark tags another player, that player now becomes a shark as well. The objective of the game is to be the last person to be tagged.

Marco Polo.

This pool game is a classic! Select one person to be Marco and everyone else is Polo. The person selected to Marco, will shout “Marco” with their eyes closed while all the other players are suppose to shout “Polo.” Marco is suppose to search blindly until they tag a polo.

Mermaid Races.

This is a popular game known by a variety of names. Sometimes its referenced as dolphin or submarine races. The objective of this game is to hold your breath and see who can swim the longest underwater without coming up. Of course with any game holding your breath, safety needs to be the primary goal. Always have adult supervision around children swimming.

Treasure Hunt.

The object of this game is simple. Collect items off the bottom of the swimming pool. Use pool friendly items that will sink in the pool and allow the players to collect the items from the bottom and bring them to the surface. Diving for items at the bottom of the pool can keep swimmers busy for hours.

Just think of the hours of fun that could be had by your family and friends in your backyard! Come into Pool World and find the perfect Doughboy swimming pool!

  3. Set the cooking grate aside; you will not be using it for this recipe. Make sure that the bottom vent on the grill is open. Place a chimney starter on the charcoal grate, and pack and fill it over the brim with all-natural lump charcoal (do not use briquettes). You need enough charcoal that, when ashed over, it will fill two-thirds of the charcoal grate. Place newspaper or paraffin cubes underneath the chimney starter (do not use lighter fluid), ignite it, and let the charcoal burn until lightly covered with white ash. Wearing insulated barbecue mitts or gloves, turn the coals out onto the charcoal grate. Break apart the larger pieces of charcoal to create a relatively even bed of coals. Using a sheet pan, fan any loose ashes from the coals. 
  4. Place the steaks directly on the coals. Put the lid on the grill, open the top vent on the lid, and cook until the steaks are browned and have reached your desired doneness, 6 to 7 minutes for medium rare, turning once and using a spatula to knock off any coals that may cling to the meat. Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes. Just before serving, season the steaks with salt and drizzle with the glaze. Serve right away.

Happy Cinco De Mayo - May 05, 2016

Today is Cinco De Mayo, a day to celebrate the Mexican Army holding off French Troops in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In celebrating, it was only fitting to find a delicious recipe for dinner tonight!

Mango Chipotle Shrimp 

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup KC Masterpiece Original Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • ½ cup mango chunks, frozen, thawed
  • 2 lbs. shrimp, peeled, deveined

In a food processor or with a small bowl and form; take the thawed mango chunks and turn them into a puree texture. Once the puree texture has been achieved, add the barbecue sauce, chipotle sauce, and garlic. Mix all ingredients until the mixture is consistent all the way through.

Place the wood skewers into water and allow them to soak for about 30 minutes. This will prevent them from burning. While these are soaking, separate the barbecue mango sauce into two separate containers. One of these will be used for marinating the shrimp and the other will be used for serving.

Place the shrimp into the barbecue mango sauce for 20 to 30 minutes. Once shrimp has marinated, skewer the shrimp and grill on medium heat. The shrimp skewers should take about 3 minutes per side. Once you flip the shrimp, brush with barbecue mixture.

Once shrimp has been cooked, remove from the grill and serve with additional sauce.

Pine Trees are in Bloom! - April 26, 2016

The tulips are blooming, beautiful spring aroma is in the air and the pine tree pollen has started to coat everything in sight. For swimming pool owners this can be a huge nuisance! The pollen has the ability to turn a swimming pool cloudy, consume chlorine and just make it a yellow mess! Unfortunately the pollen is so little, its nearly impossible to skim off the surface and isn’t filtered out in the circulation system.

There are some steps to making your swimming pool sparkle during Pine Pollen Season…

1)Remove all debris. This includes removing debris from the skimmer, off the surface of the water and even the debris that has dropped to the bottom of the deep end of the pool.

2)Install a BioGuard Skim Mor with Mycelx over your skimmer basket. This product is light blue in color and reminds people of nylons.  This will help to stop debris that the skimmer usually misses.

3)Add a clarifier. There are a variety of options to choose from each brand has specific dosage requirements. Follow directions on the back of the bottle.

4)Do some maintenance around your swimming pool. This will include brushing the walls, corners, steps, etc. This will help to knock off any debris, algae or pollen that may of collected on the pool surface.

5)Place your circulation system on filter and allow your swimming pool to circulate continuously until the water is sparkling. During this process make sure to empty the skimmer basket but keep the Skim More installed. Check on your filters pressure and backwash if needed.

6)If any debris, pollen or other items coagulates at the bottom of the pool, vacuum out to waste.

This process may need to be repeated a few times depending on how long the pine trees around your area are in bloom. For more helpful tips, please visit our helpful How To Worksheets and Helpful Video Links section of our website.

Pool Openings - April 13, 2016

Spring has already been a little unpredictable! There are days where temperatures will rise to the 80’s easily and it’s wonderful to have the backyard ready. Family, friends and all of the children will be able to jump in and cool off on the warmer days.

The sooner you opened your pool, the less visible algae growth you’ll have. Some people like to wait till late April and May to open their swimming pools but this provides plenty of time and warmth for algae to grow. In years like we had this year, the warmer winter weather consumes all of the chlorine early on and cannot prevent the algae from blooming during the spring.  Opening prior to the swimming season allows time to clear up any water clarity issues before it impacts your swim time!

Start Preparing for Summer! - March 29, 2016

After months of cold, snow and rain, and now we are all waiting for the warmer weather to arrive! There are a few things that you can do to prepare for Summer and make Spring more enjoyable!

1. Review what inventory you have in stock.

Check the garage, pool house or storage for the water care products that are leftover from the prior year. make sure they have been properly stored. During the winter some products may collect moisture or become frozen during the winter months and may need to be replaced. Make a list of anything that needs to be restocked.

2. Inspect your pool equipment and accessories. Cold winter months have the ability to weaken or even break some of these items.

Check all of your equipment thoroughly. This includes the pool filter, cleaner, pump, accessories and any gaskets or o-rings that may have been removed during the pool closing. Make sure that everything is in functioning order and no parts or piece are broken, missing or worn out.  Its simple to replace parts and pieces when a swimming pool is still closed down for winter!

3. It’s Spring and that means it’s time for some cleaning! Remove any debris from around your pool decks and cover.

If you use a winter pool cover, make sure to remove any debris such as leaves, pine cones and pine needles. Don’t forget about any standing water that may have collected on top of the cover. Yes it’s gross to deal with but when it comes time to open your swimming pool, you’ll thank us! We recommend using a pool cover pump connected to a hose to pump off excess water.

Do you have any plans made for that special someone in your life? This Sunday is Valentines Day and if you are like the rest of us, you wait till last minute. At the end of the day, it’s really the thought that counts more than anything.

Theres still a day or two to come up with something wonderful. If not, there’s plenty of time to create your home into a romantic, relaxing spot to enjoy the evening. It’s easy to do and very thoughtful! Stop by the store for dinner items and a card, clean the house, put on your favorite music and cook dinner. Taking the time to focus on the little details will make this Valentines Day very memorable.

If you happen to have a hot tub, don’t forget to include that in your special night! Take a moment to check on the water clarity, add a dash of sanitizer and turn on the jets. It will be an ideal to end the night with warm water swirling around you.

Scheduled Your Pool Opening? - February 08, 2016

Spring isn’t too far away! Have you given any thought to summer and your swimming pool? Now is the perfect time to call and get scheduled for a pool opening!

Our area may have some snow, ice or slush hanging around but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be preparing for Spring and Summer! There are a few reasons why scheduling your pool opening earlier in the spring will benefit you and your family in the long run!

Spring is a little unpredictable! There are days where temperatures will rise to the 70’s or 80’s easily and it’s wonderful to have the backyard ready. Kids of all ages will be able to jump in and cool off on the warmer days.

Did you know that if you opened your pool in April it will have less visible algae growth! The warmer days of May allow algae plenty of time and warmth to grow. Sometimes the warmer weather during the winter and spring allow the algae to bloom into a mess before the swimming season has even kicked off! Starting your swimming pool earlier allows time to clear up any murky issues that may arise without interfering with swimming or cooling off!  

Opening your swimming pool earlier can be uplifting. Crystal clean water with sunshine sparkling off the surface will help you embrace the coming months of summer! Enjoy looking out across your backyard and seeing a sparkling swimming pool instead of a winter cover with debris across it!

Cost effective… Who would of thought that phrase went along with a swimming pool?!? Well it’s true, if a swimming pool is opened sooner, there is the added cost for electricity to run the pump and filtration system. Keep in mind that if the swimming pool is opened later, than the cost of opening will increase with added water care products to clear up the water. Sometimes pool owners have to purchase three or four times the amount of shock, water clarifier, and other products to just see the bottom of their swimming pool by the end of June!

Those are just a few of the reasons to open your pool sooner! Our Operations Department’s Opening Season Schedule is first come first serve. Call in today and reserve the date you want before it’s gone!!

February is almost here! - January 29, 2016

Did you know that February is American Heart Health Month! This is to increase awareness of heart disease. Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States in both men and women. One in four deaths each year has been linked to heart disease.

These statistics are really frightening but heart disease can be prevented by changing your lifestyle and opting for more healthy options while helping to manage other health conditions.

Here at Pool World, we carry a variety of products to improve your life. Hot Spring, Caldera, Free Flow Hot Tubs, Finnleo Saunas, Swim Spa and last but not least; swimming pools. All of these items have the ability to improve your life, and reduce the threat in heart disease!!

Hot tubs are known to help reduce stress! While enjoying the warm pulsating jets, your body relaxes which allows your sympathetic nervous system to decrease and your parasympathetic nervous system to increase. Once both of these nervous systems have adjusted, your body falls into balance. This state of balance has been connected to reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

The Magic of Water - January 21, 2016

Pool World is all about water! Water is apart of everything and this is why we have passionately believed and share the benefits of water.

There are a variety of diseases and illnesses that affect people every day and water therapy has the power to improve their condition as well as their day. Improve your day with water!

Soaking daily in a hot tub will provide relief to aching joints and muscles from strain or arthritis. Soaking will help with Diabetes by reducing blood sugar levels and increases circulation and flow. The increased circulation of blood flow will also reduce inflammation throughout the body while increasing healing of the body.

Enjoying time in a swimming pool also has benefits that cannot be found any where else but in water. Water offers an ideal place to enjoy aerobic exercise without the harsh impact on your skeletal system. While being immersed in water, your body bears only part of your weight. At your waist it’s 50 percent and at chest level it reduces to 25 to 35 percent. This allows your muscles, joints, limbs and the rest of your body to exercise and enjoy the movement without the strain of gravity. Swimming increases flexibility, muscle tone and strength. Did you know that swimming can improve the daily life of people who suffer from asthma symptoms! The moist air does wonders fro the lungs and symptoms such as snoring, mouth-breathing and the rest of the respiratory system.

We saved the best for last… Water relaxes us and our bodies respond almost magically when wet! Thanks to Hot Spring Hot Tubs, we have an amazing video that explains the benefits of water, “The Magic of Water.”

For more information on a hot tub to enjoy in these upcoming winter months, please go to our Residential Hot Tubs page.

Now that all of the prepared and planned chaos is done, the Christmas tree is down and we’re all in the swing of 2016 this is the perfect time to enjoy some relaxation! It may be winter time, but that doesn’t mean that you should be stuck indoors!

Enjoy our cold winter weather and adventure outside! Your hot tub has been waiting… Its warm water will help your body relax while the warm steam will keep your exposed body from becoming chilled. The swirling water will help to wash away your stress, troubles and irritability. Climb in and float away into a calm state with a renewed spirit.

Set the Big Green Egg for direct cooking at 450 degrees F. Preheat the Dutch Oven on the grill for 10 minutes.

Place the bacon in the Dutch oven, close the lid of the egg and cook until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a small bowl lined with paper towels and set aside. Reserve the bacon fat in the Dutch oven.

Add the barbecue rub to the bacon fat and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, onions, garlic, and chipotle and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until the onions are translucent. Slowly add the beer to the Dutch oven, stirring with a wooden spook to deglaze. Add the chicken stock, ketchup, mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Leave the Dutch oven uncovered, but close the lid of the EGG. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the soup has thickened.

Remove the Dutch oven from the heat. Puree the soup using an immersion blender, or carefully spoon it into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process the soup until smooth and return to the Dutch oven. Add the corn, grilled tomatoes, lima beans, chicken, and pepper and stir until completely combined. Serve topped with the reserved bacon pieces.

Just imagine what different flavors could be achieved with this recipe when cooked on a variety of grills. Here at Pool World, we carry Big Green Egg, Weber, and Traeger and for more information on these, please visit our Barbecue/Grills page.

Create a better New Year Resolution! - January 04, 2016

It’s a NEW year, create a new you! At the end of a year people often look at the past year and see a few flaws or things that they could have done better… Be better this year and make a resolution you can stick with! 

Here are a few of the most common resolutions made: Drink Less Alcohol, Eat Healthy Food, Get a Better Education, Get a Better Job, Get Fit, Lose Weight, Manage Debt, Manage Stress, Quit Smoking, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Save Money, Take a Trip, or Volunteer to Help Others.

Make your New Years Resolution count this year! Here are a few helpful tips to choosing your ideal goal:

Select something that fits into your lifestyle and values. Make it something you really want. Don’t make a resolution because it’s something someone else wants you to do or something you “should” want.

Quality not Quantity. If you are going to select more then one resolution, keep it at or under three. Make only a few resolutions that you intend to keep and focusing on the goals that you truly want.

Be specific. In your goal, include time line or dates that are realistic. For an example, instead of saying “get to the gym more,” set a schedule such as “I’m going to the gym on Tuesday and Thursdays after work.”

Automation. Use automation to help assist you with completing your goals by setting alarms or reminders. For an example, if you are trying to pay down debt, set up automatic deposits toward the debt.

Make a plan by creating a series of smaller goals in order to complete and accomplish the larger goal. It helps to have a plan of action.

Keep all of these recommendations in mind when choosing a New Year’s resolution that way, at this time next year you are able to check them off your list!

If your resolution has to do with feeling better, getting fit, losing weight, managing stress, or anything else to improving your life then Pool World has a variety product to assist you with your resolution! Come into one of our four stores to find the special product for your resolution! To find one of our stores, please visit our Location and Hours page.

The winter weather has finally arrived! Snow has been falling since yesterday and now most of the area has seen at least 3 inches of snow.

Removing snow off of vehicles or hot tub covers can be a hassle if you don’t have the proper tools. If you’re using a shovel or some other device to move snow, there is a possibility that it can scrape the finish of your car or tear the vinyl of a hot tub cover.  Pool World has been carrying the perfect tool for years, its call the SNOBRuM.

The SNOBRuM is a quick way to sweep snow off of any surface while pushing the snow away from you. It’s ideal for vehicles and hot tub covers because of the telescoping handle that extends from 27 to 46 inches. The brum portion is made up a of durable molded polyethylene foam head that’s non-abrasive.

Detoxification: while enjoying the heat within a sauna, your body’s core temperature will start to increase.

Toxins that are commonly released from the body may include, sodium, sulfur, led, nickel, mercury, zinc and there are a variety more.

Anti-Aging and Skin Purification: As you are enjoying the warmth relaxing minutes within your sauna, you will start to notice that your skin will appear tighter, firmer and healthier. The heat from enjoying a sauna will increase blood flow throughout the body, this includes the largest organism on the human body, skin.

Weight Loss: As your body’s core temperature is increased, your body has to continuously work at cooling itself off. During this process, the body will start to sweat, increase your heart rate, increase blood flow and increase your metabolic rate. These cause and affect of enjoying the heat in a sauna will result in more calories being burned. With repeated use over time and conditioning, the body may burn as many as 600 calories within a 30 minute session.

Recent Power Outages - November 20, 2015

The power outages has led to a number of phone calls to all of our locations about what our customers should do with their hot tubs…

Over the years our area has experienced a number of power outages from wind storms and winter storms with snow and ice. Figuring out what to do during these times with family and friends can be hard sometimes, but is always easier than what to do with your hot tub!

If your hot tub is fully foamed brand that Pool World carries, (Hot Spring, Caldera, Free Flow, Hot Spot, Limelight, Tiger River, etc.), all of these hot tubs will be able to withstand multiple days, even weeks without power.

The most important thing is not to drain your hot tub! During a power outage, there will be no electricity to run a shop vac to blow out the lines and components. Here are a few other tips to keep your hot tub from freezing:

Do not open the cover. Keeping the cover closed will allow heat to be trapped in the hot tub and will maintain the water warmer, longer.

Double check the cover locks. Making sure that the cover is locked in place will prevent any other conditions from moving the cover. This will help to keep and maintain heat in the water.

If you expect to be without power for more then a week, it’s recommended to wrap the hot tub with tarps. Tarps around the hot tub will help reduces the drafts and weather conditions from impacting the temperature of the water.

If you have a generator, you can run a 75 watt light bulb or a small heater in the equipment area. Make sure that the heater or light isn’t touching anything and is on a low setting, this will help to prevent fire.

When power is restored, shut off the power to your hot tub and reset the heater. Make sure that the lines and equipment has been defrosted prior to turning the hot tub back on.

If you have any questions or would like our service department to come out and get your hot tub up and running, please call our toll free number of 1-800-876-4340.

Cold weather is here! - November 16, 2015

Brrrr! The cold weather has arrived! Since the freezing temperatures have arrived, here are a few tips to keep your hot tub warm and ready!

Keep all of your hot tub supplies handy. Take a moment to check all of your water care products to ensure you have plenty of stock on hand. It’s no fun to venture out to your hot tub for a warm soak just to realize that your hot tub needs water care products you don’t have. Stock up now and relax with the peace of mind that everything you need is within reach.

Check the water chemistry. The cold temperature makes it easy to stay inside and ignore any maintenance that may be required on your hot tub. Instead of standing out in the cold, testing the water chemistry, scoop up a cup or two of water from your hot tub and bring it into your closest Pool World. Take advantage of our knowledgeable staff and free water test for our customers! Plus, you will receive easy to follow instructions for any additions that need to be made. 

Clean your filters. Take five minutes to remove your hot tub filters and clean them. Cleaning the filters will assist with water chemistry, sparkling water assures proper filtration and even extend the life of the filter! A clean filter will allow your hot tub’s heater to work to its full potential.

Check the water level. Make sure that the water is at proper operating level. Usually, this level is at the bottom of the headrest. This will allow for proper filtration, circulation and assures that all the jets and other components are in full working order.

Check your hot tub cover. During the daylight, take a moment to look at your hot tub cover and check its condition. Are there any tears, leakage, mold, deformation or is it too heavy to lift? It may be time to look into a new hot tub cover. There are a variety of new cover options to choose. 

If you don't have a hot tub yet, but are in the market... Please visit our Residential Hot Tubs page!

Fall Exercising - October 06, 2015

October has definitely brought cooler temperatures and may of stopped you from enjoying the nearby lakes and rivers but it doesn’t mean you should stop exercising in water!

Exercising in water helps to build cardio, strength, and resistance. Water classes are for everyone because they ease the strain gravity puts on our bodys and allows the body’s joints to move without pain or impact.

Strength building occurs in water because the resistance the water creates. This resistance ranges from 4 to 42 times greater than air, which provides you with a more challenging workout. With continual aquatic aerobic exercise, you have the ability to improve your strength, flexibility and agility.

Flexibility increases when the body is exposed to water resistance during aerobic exercise which occurs while your pushing or pulling against the water. This will naturally expand your range of motion.

Water creates a low impact environment by supporting up to 90 percent of the body’s weight which helps to reduce impact and increase flexibility. Water helps to act as a cushion for the joints, muscles and ligaments. Reducing stress on the body allows for better results while limiting chance for injury and strain.

While exercising in water, you will experience a workout with the combination or strength, cardio and resistance which will provide a full body workout. Depending on what aquatic activity you choose, the body will burn between 350 to 500 calories in an hour of exercise. It’s a great calorie burner!

Did you know that water has the ability to reduce blood pressure? Water pressure helps the circulatory system by placing pressure evenly across the whole body. This pressure assists the circulatory system to be more efficient which decreases blood pressure and helps to lower your resting heart rate.

Pool World has a variety of options to help you enjoy the benefits of aquatic exercise. We have swim spas, hot tubs, and swimming pools. With a variety of options to choose from, which one is perfect for you?

National Fallen Firefighter Memorial Weekend - October 02, 2015

Today is our 14th Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance to remember the events that occurred on September 11, 2001.

More than a decade later, our nation is living in a world that was forever changed by the terror attacks that took our nation by surprise. What has remained the same since 2001, is that our nation has remained strong and our support and love for the men and women who provided their services, compassion, courage, faith, and their lives has never wavered and they will forever live on as heroes.

Today we remember the 3000 victims who perished. Today we also remember the policemen, firefighters, emergency rescue teams, all the military branches and every citizen who has protected our Nation’s freedom.

Today we remember and grieve as a country. We will never forget.

So, today be a little kinder, show some extra love to the special people in your life. Make today count towards something better. 


National Honey Month - September 10, 2015

September is National Honey Month! Honey has a variety of uses including health benefits, here are just a few!

  • Prevents cancer and heart disease because it contains flavonoids, antioxidants which help to reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease.
  • Reduces ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders which was recently discovered and help improve bacterial gastroenteritis.
  • Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal by the enzyme that makes hydrogen peroxide which is added by the bees during the production process.
  • Increased performance through boosting and maintaining a glycogen levels and is a great natural sweetener.
  • Reduce cough and throat irritation through the use of honey, especially buckwheat honey. Honey has been shown to be just as effective as a single does of dextromethorphan.
  • Blood sugar regulation is also a benefit of honey, because the honey has the exact combination of fructose and glucose works together with the body to regulate blood sugar levels. Some honey is even considered to be low hypoglycemic index.
  • Heals wounds and burns by applying honey to the surface of the wound. This has been proven to be as effective as silver sulfadiazine.
  • Probiotic, some honeys contain large amounts of friendly bacteria. These friendly bacteria’s include 6 species of lactobacilli and 4 species of bifidobactera.
  • Beautiful skin, since honey has anti-bacterial qualities and when honey is combined with other ingredients it can be moisturizing and nourishing to the skin.

Winter Pool Closing - August 27, 2015

As fall approaches with cooler temperatures, there is still plenty of time to start thinking about winterizing your swimming pool. In our area it’s a necessity to winterize your swimming pool in order to protect it from freeze damage. Making sure to close your swimming pool properly also has the ability to make your spring opening go a lot smoother.

Balance your swimming pool water about 4 to 7 days prior to closing your pool is the highest priority other than blowing out the lines of the pool. The week allowance provides you with plenty of time to make any water chemistry adjustments before closing your pool. Preparing the swimming pool chemistry prior to closing is slightly higher then normal operating levels. Ideal closing chemistry is having your pools ph at 7.6-7.8, pool alkalinity above 125ppm, calcium hardness above 150ppm and then shocking the swimming pool.

If you haven't scheduled your fall pool closing, please call our Service Department at 1 (800) 876-4340 to find out rates and available dates for an appointment in your area. 

For more helpful tips about closing your swimming pool, please visit our How-to Worksheets & Helpful Links page.

Tips to help protect your home! - August 18, 2015

Summer came earlier than normal this year and has created drier conditions than normal. The 2015 fire season started months early and has left more devastation compared to previous years.

No matter what amount of snowfall, rain or weather conditions Mother Nature decides to provide, there are a few things that you can do to help protect your property and home. This time of year is always scary knowing that it’s out of your control if a fire sweeps in or not, but there are a few things that you can do to help save your property.

Protect your home Year Around:

  • Maintain a 100-foot clear zone around your home. It’s recommended to have a minimum of 30 feet. If you have the ability to have more, create a larger buffer.
  • Keep landscape pruned and off the ground. If possible cut all vegetation to be 10 feet above the ground. Remove any dead or dying trees.
  • Add a wildfire sprinkler system
  • Update old roofs to shingles with asphalt composite or a metal roof.
  • Keep your drive ways or pathways covered with gravel, rock, brick, or other nonflammable substances.
  • Move and keep woodpiles at least 100 feet away from your home. If on a hillside, keep the piles on the uphill side.
  • Mow grass and fields regularly, and keep it trimmed about 4 inches in height.
  • Remove any access debris from or below decks and porches.
  • Enclose all eaves and overhangs.
  • Make your address visible from the road. This will help firefighters and crews in case of an emergency.

Protect your home when a Wildfire is in the area:

  • Move all items that will burn away from your home. Put them in storage or outside of your defensible area. (Items: lawn furniture, barbecues, tarp coverings, etc.)
  • Shut off all natural gas, propane or fuel oil supplies at the source.
  • Remove debris from rain gutters and roof.
  • Remove any dead or dying trees and if possible, trim other trees and vegetation up to 10 feet above the ground.
  • Clear vegetation around fire hydrants, cisterns, propane tanks, etc.
  • Relocate all animals from the property to safe housing until the threat has passed.
  • Connect garden hoses. Fill any pools, hot tubs, garbage cans, tubs or other large containers for water.
  • Disconnect any automatic garage door openers but keep maintaining them for manual operation.
  • Place lawn sprinklers on the roof, around the property and keep any vegetation around the home wet.
  • Crate and pack up any “non-replaceable” items such as photos and important documents into a quick grab box.

Sparkle up your pool! - July 21, 2015

The summer this year has definitely turned up the heat in the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area! There doesn’t look to be an end in sight! The summer temperatures can only be beat by being around the pool. Relax, cool off, splash and have some fun.

After having all of your family and friends at the pool during the sizzling days we’ve had in July, have you noticed that your pool just isn’t sparkling like it used to? Even after shocking?!

There are a few reasons, but the two most common are over cleaning or backwashing your filter and turning the pump off.

Sand filters work best when they are a little dirty because the additional dirt actually helps trap the smaller particles of dirt and impurities from circulating back into the pool. A sand filters require the pressure on the gauge to increase about 10 lbs after the last backwash prior to backwashing again.

DE Filters require a little more work and yes, the gauge still needs to increase 10 lbs before backwashing. While backwashing, remember to switch back and forth on the DE filter from “filter” to “backwash” settings several times during the backwashing process. Once the backwash process has been completed, remember that a DE filter needs to be recharged and requires more diatomaceous earth to be added.

Cartridge Filters are a little different and don’t require backwashing. Instead, the pump has to be shut off and then you can remove and hose it down until it is clean. During the season, sometimes the cartridge filter requires to be deep cleaned and soaked in a “filter cleaner and degreaser” overnight and rinsed thoroughly prior to replacing it into the filter canister.

The other most common issue is turning the pump off. It doesn’t matter if it’s during the day or night, Pool World recommends allowing the filtration system to run 24 hours a day. The more circulation and filtration the pool receives the healthier, clearer and more enjoyable the pool will be!

Remember; allow your filtration system to do all the hard work. Be patient and allow the filtration system to do its job! This will make your swimming pool look amazing! For more helpful tips, please visit Helpful Tips and Handouts.

Summer is hot tubbing time! - July 14, 2015

Now that the blazing hot weather has cooled down to normal levels again and our evenings are cooling off to a comfortable 60 degrees F it’s now the perfect time to be enjoying your hot tub again!

If you are like many hot tubbers, you like to use your hot tub year-around and enjoy closing your crazy days by soaking in it. Our cool evenings in the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area are ideal for this type of hot tubber!

Coming up here in a few weeks, there are a few dates that are ideal for an evening or early morning soak! The Perseid Meteor Shower is coming in August and then the last quarter moon at the beginning of September. The meteor shower that occurs during the middle of August is considered to be among one of the best shows annually. This is attributed to the displays of meteors that can be up to over 90 meteors an hour. As for the last quarter moon, it will pass in front of some of the brightest stars including the Aldebaran.

If you don’t have a hot tub, now may be the perfect time to create that backyard vacation that you are looking for. For more information on Hot Spring, Caldera or Free Flow Hot Tubs, please visit our Residential Hot Tubs page.

Water Testing - June 30, 2015

Did you know that each of our four store locations has a free water lab for our customers? This means that after last weekends sizzling temperatures and the local events of Hoopfest and Ironman, your swimming pool may need some assistance in becoming the balanced sparkling pool it normally is.

Scoop up about two cups of water from elbow deep and bring it into your nearest Pool World location. The BioGuard Smart Lab partnered with ALEX software will provide you with an accurate reading in as little as 60 seconds. These results are then processed through the ALEX software where it will evaluate the chemistry level and provide a treatment regiment.  Every recommended prescription for a swimming pool or hot tub is personally reviewed and adjusted by our knowledgeable staff to meet your needs.

Our water lab services are always up and ready for operation when our stores open until they close. Come in this week and clean up from last weekend and prepare for the 4th of July! 


Hot Temperatures are coming! - June 24, 2015

Another weekend is just within reach! This weekend is predicted to be in the 100’s degrees F in the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area. This is a little hot even for our area.

With summer being synonymous with hot temperatures, swimming, and venturing outdoors these may put you out during the hottest part of the day. Keep a few things in mind during the sizzling days…  

Enjoy the outdoors but take it easy: It sounds simple, but it is easy to overexert yourself in the temperatures that they are predicting. It doesn’t matter if it’s kids playing outside, outdoor labor or just relaxing outside. Be aware of how your body feels and don’t push your self too hard.

Heat Cramps: involuntary muscle spasms throughout the body. Heat Exhaustion: headache, nausea, extreme thirst and weakness. Heat Stroke: (Extremely Serious; possible death) rapid and shallow breathing, hot/red skin, rapid heartbeat, seizures plus all the symptoms of heat exhaustion.

It’s very important to be aware of these symptoms and to recognize this sign before it’s too late. It’s recommended to find shady spot to cool down and to drink water. If you believe that it is heat stroke, immediately contact emergency services.

Stay Hydrated: Drink and lots of extra water on hand. It’s imperative to drink at least 8 cups of water a day and even more while enjoying the hot weather. The body loses a lot of water through perspiration by the body’s attempt to keep cool. In the process of sweating the body looses water and salt (electrolytes.) It is also recommend to consume sports drinks occasionally to boost the electrolytes, this will help to prevent any heat cramps from occurring. Remember to keep all of your water and sport drinks cold because it can assist you with keeping your core temperature lower, at a more comfortable temperature.

White or Light-Colored Clothing: White and light-colored clothing helps to reflect light and heat from the sun away from the body. This will allow your body to stay at a more comfortable temperature. Clothing fabric that is breathable and loose fitting will also assist your body in regulating a lower more comfortable temperature.


Spice up a Classic Hot Dog! - June 17, 2015

Enjoying a summer evening is easy when you cook or grill dinner on the barbecue or grill. The easiest way to do this is by cooking some hot dogs. Maybe you don’t want to do the same ole classic frank on a bun so we have a few recommendations to spice up this classic!

Add some kick to the classic condiments! Use the classic ketchup, mayo, mustard and stir in a few extra things to create a new flavor. One of the most popular ways to do this is by adding some fresh lemon juice and seasoning to mayonnaise. The same concept goes for the ketchup, add a little harissa paste until you come to a preferred taste. For the mustard, try adding a splash or two of maple syrup.

A second way to change up the classic hot dog is by grilling your toppings! Grill up toppings like red and yellow onions, peppers and corn. Grill the corn and cut off the cobb as the perfect sweet topping.

The third way to jazz up the classic hot dog is by adding some pickled items to the menu! Add some crunch by using pickled carrots, pickled cabbage, sweet relish or dill pickle relish and for someone looking for a little more kick, use scallion kimchi.

Create a new hot dog night that everyone will love!

Tips to keep your swimming pool sparkling! - May 29, 2015

After yesterday’s horrific rain storm, it’s key to have your swimming pool fully operational, treated and circulating to maintain and keep sparkling clear water! After this week’s storms with dust, debris and gunk flying around and getting into your pool, now is the best time to ensure that your pool’s filtration system is working to its full potential.  

Here at Pool World we recommend a few helpful tips to make sure that your pool’s circulation is doing all it can do to make your life a little easier.

Check all of the pool’s skimmers and main drains. At each of these points, you want to confirm that these points are pulling water into your filter system. Every swimming pool has a unique arrangement in regards to the valves and where the filtration system pulls suction from. Once you have mastered your layout, remember to label them to ensure ease of operation next year!

Check out the return jets on the pool walls. These jets are returning clean and filtered water back into your swimming pool. The water returning into your pool is what helps the water circulate beneath the surface. To ensure that the water is circulating at its best, make sure to angle the return eyelets to 4 or 7 o’clock. This will be about a 40 degree angle down and are all pointed in the same direction. The water angle and direction will help to circulate the water away from the skimmer and keep the deep end and corners from becoming stagnant.

If your swimming pool was built with jets around the steps, point the jets to stream the water across the surface of each of the steps. The stream of water will help to push off any dirt that accumulates on the surface.

When was the last time you replaced the pressure gauge? The filter pressure gauge does not need to be replaced every year but there are a few key ways to confirm that it’s working properly. First, if you turn off your pump, the pressure gauge should sit at zero. A second part to this trick, figure out what normal pressure is for the filter. After your next backwash cycle, remember to check what the clean operating pressure is. From the clean operating pressure, wait for the pressure gauge to increase 8 to 10 psi over the clean operating pressure until you backwash again. This will ensure that your filter is working to its full potential. 


Memorial Day Weekend! - May 22, 2015

Kick this weekend off right! Have a barbecue… Enjoy the sunshine and splash into your swimming pool! This weekend is time for family, friends and enjoying the land of the free!

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day was created to remember those who died in service of the United Sates of America. This weekend has been filled with century old traditions including wearing red poppies, visiting cemeteries and place flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes and visiting memorials.

Enjoy your long weekend but remember to take a moment on Monday to honor the men and women who died in service for our nation. 

Pool World will be open Saturday from 9-5pm and will be closed Sunday and Monday in honor of Memorial Day. All four store locations will reopen on Tuesday May 26th. 


Water Temperatures - May 20, 2015

Memorial Day Weekend kicks off the summer festivities! This is usually the first weekend that swimming pools across the nation are open for enjoyment!

Since swimming season is kicking off, here are a few fun facts about water temperature and how it impacts the body…

When a swimming pool is too warm… swimmers are able to increase their speed and performance due to the high temperature. Normal lap pools are usually 77-82 degrees F and the warmer end of the spectrum allow athlete’s to perform at a higher rate without shocking the body. At the same time, the warmer water has the ability to trap body heat and over heat the body which can result in muscle spasms, disorientation, or worse if not recognized by the swimmer.

When water is too cold… Sometimes swimmers feel like torturing themselves with temperatures that are uncomfortably cold. One of the reasons is the myth that cold water burns fat and requires the body to work harder to maintain an optimal temperature. Swimming in water that is too cold can be dangerous. Be careful and aware that water below 70 degrees has the ability to absorb body heat before you are able to create more and restricts blood flow.

If you are looking for just the right temperature, (not too hot or too cold,) the optimal temperatures are 77-82 degrees F. As for other water temperatures depending on the activities, they are as followed: Synchronized swimming 81 degrees, Lap Pools should be 77-82 degrees and a Diving pool is normally at 79 degrees. 


National Bike Month! - May 18, 2015

May has some amazing weather which means it’s the perfect time to celebrate National Bike Month! May is ideal for bike riding before the summer heat sets in and provides you a feeling of freedom with the wind in your hair.

Here are a few reasons to get out and enjoy the sunshine while riding.

-It burns calories! A 135-pound women pedaling 12 to 14 miles an hour blasts 488 calories in 60 minutes.

-Over half of Americans work within 5 miles from home. Being this close to work allows a 20-minute ride each way to work. Pedaling to work twice a week for a month has the ability to burn up to 3,000 extra calories.

-It’s a whole body work out! Cyclists are known for having killer legs but did you know that it works the whole upper body too!

-Energy booster! Riding a bicycle 3 times a week has the ability to increase energy levels by 20%!

-Ride a bike instead of running! Riding a bike has the ability to limit the stress placed on your knees, ankles and spine.

-Heart disease is the leading cause of death of women in the country. Select a road or a path where you can ride for at least 30 minutes nonstop at a consistently high pace. Doing this 3 times a week has the ability to reduce high blood pressure and high LDL cholesterol.

-Cycling is an activity for all ages! Since it’s easier on the body, many runners switch to cycling after it becomes too hard to run on a daily basis.

-Helps to reduce stress and depression! Fresh air, wind in your hair and burning calories all leads to a healthier and happier you!

Take some time this month to venture out with your family and friends while exploring your local area. Get out and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Warm Weather During Spring - April 20, 2015

Warmer than average temperatures are predicted for the next week! For the month of April, the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area are used to being in the high 50’s and even low 60’s. The next two days are predicted to be in the mid to high 70’s.

Have you ventured out to your backyard? If you haven’t, you may want to check on your swimming pool.  Now is the perfect time to do so! The warm sunshine and clear skies will make your backyard a little more inviting to see how your swimming pool is doing.

The warmer then normal Winter accompanied by the warmer Spring weather has caused many swimming pools to bloom with algae early in the season! To help prevent this, now is the time to scoop up a few cups of water from about a foot down under the surface of the water. Take the cup to a spot where you’re able to test the water. Specifically you’re testing for chlorine. Having chlorine present in the water is essential for the swimming pool during the spring.

If no chlorine is present in the water, come to your local Pool World store and pick up some liquid chlorine. Each pool will require a different amount. Ask one of our sales representatives and they’ll be happy to provide instructions and dosage.

During Spring this is one of the most crucial steps to preventing your swimming pool from turning green before the swimming season has even started! If you haven’t looked into opening your swimming pool, now is the perfect time to schedule your pool opening!

Spring has arrived and has brought the Winter snow that Spokane and the Coeur d’Alene area never got! No matter what the weather does during spring, right now is the ideal time to prepare and plan for the approaching swimming season!

During the Summer months, many pool owners realize that this is the year to update their swimming pool with a new liner! This usually happens because last year they wanted to wait another year before replacing the liner or the liner received some damage from the Winter and will not make it through another season! Well Spring is the perfect time to make this happen!

Place a deposit and order now, and pay on it until it’s installed! The liner installation schedule is first come, first serve. Once a deposit is placed then your spot is reserved for the liner installation! Our liner installation crews are already booking up! The installation of new liners will begin when temperatures start to be in the 60’s.

For more information on replacing your liner, please visit our Remodels page!

Spring and a Hop! - March 31, 2015

Spring has sprung the fruit trees are budding which means it’s that time of year when we see bunny ears and colorful eggs all around. Yes, it’s almost Easter! It’s coming quick! It’s this Sunday, April 5th!

Sunday’s weather is looking pretty promising at 53 degrees and a slight wind which means it’s going to be an ideal day to be outside hunting eggs and preparing a feast on the barbecue!

Here are a few little treats that are perfect for any spring day on the grill! 

Ingredients:

1 bone-in, fully cooked smoked ham, preferably from the butt end, 8 to 10 pounds, any tough outer skin should be removed.

24 Hawaiian (sweet) dinner rolls (optional)

Glaze Ingredients:

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

½ cup fresh pineapple juice

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

2 tablespoons packed golden brown sugar

½ teaspoon ground ginger

½ teaspoon Chinese five spice

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Sauce Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups sour cream

¼ cup prepared horseradish

3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Pineapple-Glazed Ham with

Horseradish Sour Cream

Directions: 

Allow the ham to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour before grilling.

Prepare the grill for indirect cooking over-low heat, about 325 degrees F. 

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the butter and cook unti it begins to brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Immediately add the remaining glaze ingredients. Low the heat to a simmer and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.

Score the ham in a large crisscross pattern about 1/2-inch deep on all sides except for the cut side. Place the ham, cut side down, in a large disposable foil pan. Cover the ham snugly with aluminum foil, crimping the foil around the rim of the pan. Cook the ham over indirect medium-low heat, with the lid closed, for 1-1/2 hours. Meanwhile, make the sauce. 

In a small nonreactive bowl whisk the sauce ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. (The sauce can be made up to 1 day in advance and refrigerate, covered, until serving time.)

After 1-1/2 hours of cooking, remove the foil from the ham (but save the foil for later) and quickly spoon some of the glaze over the meat. COntinue cooking, with the lid closed, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the ham (not touching the bone) registers 120 degrees F, 1 to 2 hours more, spooning glaze over the ham every 20 minutes or so. If the glaze gets too dark, cover the ham loosely wit the saved aluminum foil for hte remainder of the cooking time. Carefully transfer the ham in the pan onto a sheet pan. Tent the ham loosely with foil. Let rest for 15 to 30 minutes. 

Cut the ham into thin slices. If desired, drizzle some of the glaze over the slices. Serve the ham warm with the sauce on the side. The ham is also delicious piled high on Hawaiian dinner rolls with some of the sauce spread on one or both sides of the roll. 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

14x18" piece of aluminum foil

Cooking Spray

Frozen Broccoli

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese

Lemon Parmessan

Foil-Pack Broccoli

Directions: 

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Tear off 2, 12 inches length of aluminum foil to make foil packets. Place half the broccoli in the center of each piece of foil. Drizzle with lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper. 
Bring up 2 sides of the foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making it tight ½-inch fold; fold again, allowing pace on sides for heat to circulate and expand. Fold other sides to seal. 
Place foil packets on the grill over indirect heat. Cover grill; cook 15 to 25 minutes or until broccoli is heated through. Carefully open foil packs, and sprinkle broccoli with Parmesan cheese. Serve Immediately. 

 

Ingredients:

2 packs of Peeps

Skewers

Grilled Peeps

Directions: 

Set the grill for direct cooking at 200 degrees F. 

Put peeps on a skewer and hold over low as if roasting a marshmallow. They will puff and turn brown. Let them cool before eating. 

Don’t forget to come into your nearest location to stock up on Big Green Egg Charcoal, Traeger Pellets, Weber accessories and a variety of seasonings!

5 Reasons Why NOW is the Time! - March 17, 2015

Spring is just a few more days away and this year it seems as if it came very early!

During March, the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area is known for having snow on the ground and cold temperatures. These colder temperatures leave us feeling as if spring and summer is so far away and all the while we are ignoring our swimming pool.

Since this year has been warmer, there are a few things that all pool owners should beware of!

1.Warmer temperatures increase your chances of having algae growing in the swimming pool.

The warmer temperatures means that algae is more active then what it normally is and requires you to be checking on the chlorine levels frequently until the pool is opened. Checking the chlorine levels ensures that your swimming pool is still protected from becoming a green swamp!

2.Many people are cautious of when they open their swimming pool because of the operating expense.

But did you know that it’s more expensive to treat a green pool during late spring/early summer than it is to open your swimming pool a little earlier while it’s still clean and clear. During spring and early summer before the temperatures climb, you have the ability to limit the amount that the circulation system runs.

3.Spring brings about rain, sunshine, and blooming flowers. These beautiful buds will add color to our life while adding pollen into the air which settles into swimming pool.

As pollen collects in the stagnant water, it will consume more of the available chlorine in the cold water depleting the resources to prevent an algae bloom from occurring. If a swimming pool is open, and it’s sanitized the remnants will be circulated and collected in the filtration system.

4.When the temperatures increase or stay warmer longer, your chlorine is more active and has more of a demand; thus why a lot of pool owners find it’s easier to open their pools earlier with clean and clear water then it is to open late and have to address an algae bloom.

5.Make your backyard beautiful again! Since the swimming pool was closed, backyards always collect pine needles, leaves, pine cones and a whole lot of junk that just isn’t that appealing to look at. Right now is the perfect time to clean up the flower beds, garden and the area around the pool. The sooner your backyard area and pool decks are clear, and the pool is fully operational… the sooner you will be ready to enjoy your backyard when the sunshine is out. Your swimming pool will be ready for you to jump on in when the first hot day arrives!

These are only five of many reasons why not to wait to open your swimming pool. What are your reasons?!?

Team & Club Rewards to Boy Scouts of America, Troop 401 - March 11, 2015

Mark and Carrie were able to donate a Team & Club Rewards to Boy Scout Troop 401 through the purchase of their new Caldera Cantabria hot tub. This hot tub is a step above the rest! The Cantabria is spacious and has been designed to accommodate up to 8 adults comfortably. Throughout the 9’ by 7’ 7” layout, soakers will enjoy the UltraMasseuse System which includes 74 customizable jets to meet your soaking needs.

Warm Winter Days - February 16, 2015

The warmer temperatures seem to be here for a while! By the middle of February, the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area are used to being in the mid 30’s and even low 40’s. Today’s temperature is 52 degrees.

Have you ventured out to your backyard? If you haven’t, you may want to check on your swimming pool.  Now is the perfect time to do so! The warm sunshine and clear skies will make your backyard a little more inviting to see if your swimming pool is still just a huge ice cube or if it’s already melted.

If the pool is still an over-sized ice cube, just remember to routinely check on it until it’s fully thawed.

If the pool has thawed, now is the time to scoop up a few cups of water from about a foot down under the surface of the water. Take the cup to a spot where you’re able to test the water. Specifically you’re testing for chlorine. It’s essential to test the swimming pool during the spring until it’s open to ensure an easy opening. If no chlorine is present in the water, come to your local Pool World store and pick up some liquid chlorine. Each pool will require a different amount. Ask one of our sales representatives and they’ll be happy to provide instructions and dosage.

During Spring this is one of the most crucial steps to preventing your swimming pool from turning green before the swimming season has even started!

If you have any questions in regards to your swimming pool, please do not hesitate to contact us or come into one of our four store locations

Fight Seasonal Affective Disorder - January 15, 2015

Are you tired of waking up to days filled with grey skies and fog? Are you ready for some sunshine to melt away the winter blues? It’s not uncommon for people to feel sluggish and tired when there are limited hours of daylight, cold, wet weather has moved in, and outdoor activities are limited. Well, Pool World has a few recommendations on how to improve your life on a daily basis and how to limit the impact of Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Did you know that SAD normally starts when daylight hours start to shorten and it has the ability to stick around till spring? Apparently, people who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder are 60 to 90% more likely to be women then men.

Here are a few tips to fight your way through the winter blues!

Make sure you’re taking vitamin D. Vitamin D does wonders for the body by preventing cancers, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and the list goes on.

Stock up on the Omega-3 during the Winter months. Omega-3 supplements have been shown to improve depression and bipolar disorder. People who suffer from arthritis and asthma will also see a reduction with inflammation and stiffness. Omega-3 even has benefits for your heart and circularly system. 

Eat a healthy diet. Everyone’s mood and energy is greatly impacted when and what they decide to eat. If you eat healthier food options and reduce sugar intake, your body is going to feel better. Try incorporating more complex carbohydrates like brown rice, whole wheat breads, veggies, and fruits to ensure a well balanced diet. Eating healthy provides you with the nutrients your body craves while stabilizing your blood sugars and your energy.

Embrace the Winter season. Instead of curling up inside, venture outside and see what Winter has to offer. Remember to dress the part and wear layers. You may find a Winter sport that you really enjoy like ice skating, snowboarding, or even sledding!

Get social! Reach out to your family and friends to plan a coffee date, dinner, shopping, or maybe a Super Bowl party. Interacting with your loved ones is a sure way to lighten the mood and lift your spirits!

Enjoy the sunshine! Make sure to take advantage of daylight hours especially when the sun is shining! Being out and enjoying sunlight provides your body to create and process Vitamin D. Sunlight has the ability to release neurotransmitters that assist the brain and improves your mood. If you happen to live in an area where sunlight is limited, the use of a tanning bed during the Winter months is a wonderful way to obtain your daily Vitamin D year around!

Come into one of our four store locations today or tomorrow and you could be tanning in your own home with an ESB Tanning Bed or a Vitamin D Bed! For more information, please visit our ESB Tanning beds page.

It’s National Soup Month in January! During January it’s been cold that means it’s the perfect time to create your favorite soup or maybe try a new one! A hot cup or bowl of soup will do wonders to take the chill away. There is no better time then now to practice your soup-making skills.

Everyone enjoys a warm bowl of soup! Soups have a variety of thicknesses to creamy, calorie laden soup, to water-based and healthier broth and even a vegetable chili. It doesn’t matter where you are at in the world; every country has its own recipes and traditions.

This is a must try recipe for every grill master! This is one recipe that you don’t have to share your secret ingredient. Your grill will do all the work for you adding an abundance of flavor instead laboring over the stove all day. 

Ingredients 

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 slices day-old Italian bread, each 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/2 small red bell pepper, cored and seeded
  • 25 plum tomatoes, halved, cored, and seeded
  • 1 medium onion, peeled, cut in 1/2-inch slices
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed basil leaves
  • 1 rib celery, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

 

PREPARATION

Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat of 350 to 450 degrees F.

In a large stockpot combine the chicken broth and bread. Set aside while you prepare the grill for vegetables. 

Flatten the pepper half with the palm of your hand. Brush the pepper, tomato halves, and onion slices with oil. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the vegetables over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until lightly charred, turning once. The pepper and tomatoes will take 6 to 8 minutes and the onion will take 8 to 12 minutes. When the pepper and tomatoes are cool enough to handle, remove their skins. Roughly chop all the grilled vegetables.

Add the grilled vegetables, the basil, celery, garlic, salt, and pepper to the stockpot and simmer over low heat for 45 minutes. Only stir occasionally. Serve with crusty Italian bread, if desired.

Just imagine what different flavors could be achieved with this recipe when cooked on a variety of grills. Here at Pool World, we carry Big Green Egg, Weber, Traeger and Louisiana and for more information on these, please visit our Barbecue/Grills page.

5 Tips to help your Hot Tub this Winter - December 31, 2014

The Inland Northwest has really felt winter swirl in it’s frigid temperatures! The Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area has been experiencing low temperatures, snow, freezing rain, and chilling wind gust!

 

Here are a few tips to make sure you and your hot tub will survive this cold snap!

Clean your filters.

Clean filters will assist with water chemistry, sparkling water assures proper filtration and even extend the life of the filter! If you haven’t done so, grab the hot tub filters and bring them inside to be cleaned. It’s no fun when a hot tub stops heating because of dirty filters!

Keep all of your hot tub supplies handy.

There is nothing worst than going out to your hot tub for a warm soak and realizing that you are out of chlorine, enhance shock or Silk Balance. Make a list of products you need and stock up now. Relax and enjoy the hot tub! You have everything your hot tub needs within reach!

Check the water chemistry.

It’s easy to forget about maintenance the hot tub when it’s cold out side because it’s no fun to stand out there testing the water chemistry. Instead, bring a cup or two of water from your hot tub to Pool World and our knowledgeable staff will test it for you! Plus, you will receive easy to follow instructions for any additions that need to be made. 

Check the water level.

Make sure that the water level is above the skimmer line. This will allow for proper filtration, circulation and assures that all the jets and other components are in working order.

Check your hot tub cover.

During the daylight look at your hot tub cover and check its condition. Is there any tears, leakage, mold, deformed or is it too heavy to lift? It may be time to look into a new hot tub cover. There are a variety of new cover options to choose.

These five items will ensure that your hot tub is ready for your enjoyment during the fast approaching cold weather.

Saturday November 29th is dedicated to supporting your local businesses. Become inspired and support your local, American stores!

Small Business Saturday, November 29th has created the perfect opportunity to visit your local neighborhood and find a new favorite store and spend your hard earned money right in your own community! Did you know that when you shop at a locally owned business and spend $100 that $73 will stay within your community? This is drastically different from retail chains and non-local companies where only $43 out of every $100 remains in the community.

Choosing local doesn’t mean you have to ignore companies outside your local area, it just means that if you can, try to use local resources before going elsewhere. When you choose to purchase from local family owned shops, you are investing in your local community and strengthening the economy.

If you didn’t know, Pool World was established right here in Spokane Valley in 1976. We are a local family owned business with four store locations, 3 in the Spokane area and 1 in Coeur d’Alene.

For Small Business Saturday Pool World will have the following specials!

10% OFF Over the Counter Purchases

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? - November 20, 2014

Have you looked at the calendar recently? November is almost over and Thanksgiving is next week! EKKK! Have you thought about how you are cooking a bird?

If you need some new creative ideas for recipes to impress the family on Thanksgiving, you should check out the variety of recipes that are available on our website. Of course all of the recipes have to do with one of our favorite backyard accessory, the barbecue… smoker, grill or bake!

One of Pool World’s favorite recipes is Herb Butter Smoked Turkey on the Big Green Egg!

Brine:

16 cups (1 gallon) water

½ cup firmly packed brown sugar

Rind of 1 navel orange

3 sprigs rosemary

1 cup kosher salt

1-1/2 onions

½ garlic head

Herb Butter:

2 sticks of butter (softened)

2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 teaspoons of chopped rosemary

2 teaspoons of chopped sage

2 teaspoons of chopped thyme

1 lemon

Olive oil

½ onion

Preparation:

Pour the water into a large bowl. Add the brown sugar, orange rind, rosemary and salt, the quartered onions, and 1 halved garlic head. Mix until the sugar and salt has fully dissolved.

Remove the giblets from inside the turkey and reserve for another use. Rinse the turkey well. Place the turkey in a 2-1/2 gallon reseal able plastic bag or any container that is large enough to hold the turkey and liquid. Pour the brine over the turkey, making sure it’s completely covered.

Refrigerate for 12 hours, turning occasionally.

When you are ready to smoke, start the EGG and preheat to cooking temperature of 325 to 350 degrees F. Make sure to include the plate setter during the preheating.

Remove the turkey from brine, rinse well to remove the brining liquid, and pat dry with paper towels. Discard the brining liquid and solids. Stuff the turkey with lemon quarters, and the remaining halved garlic head and onion, thyme, sage and rosemary.

Brush the turkey with melted butter and season the outside with chopped seasonings of rosemary, sage, thyme and garlic.

Place the V-Rack into a drip pan and place the turkey on the V-Rack. Place on preheated EGG, and cook for about 2-1/2 hours, adding flavor chips as wanted or needed. If the turkey starts to brown too quickly, carefully tent the turkey with aluminum foil. Continue to cook till instant read thermometer registers at 165 degrees F.

Warm up and enjoy the Winter weather! - November 14, 2014

Today is gorgeous with clear blue skies that are very deceiving! Its cold out there and when the wind picks up it can chill you to the bone!

We are super excited to provide a product that can warm you up and has the ability to drastically change and improve your life on a daily basis! Here are a few of the benefits.

Detoxification: while enjoying the heat within a sauna, your body’s core temperature will start to increase. This will result in a deeper sweat that promotes toxins that are trapped within our body by flushing them out through sweat glands. Toxins that are commonly released from the body may include, sodium, sulfur, led, nickel, mercury, zinc and there are a variety more.

Anti-Aging and Skin Purification: As you are enjoying the warmth relaxing minutes within your sauna, you will start to notice that your skin will appear tighter, firmer and healthier. The heat from enjoying a sauna will increase blood flow throughout the body, this includes the largest organism on the human body, your skin.

Weight Loss: As your body’s core temperature is increased, your body has to continuously work at cooling itself off. During this process, the body will start to sweat, increase your heart rate, increase blood flow and increase your metabolic rate. These cause and affect of enjoying the heat in a sauna will result in more calories being burned. With repeated use over time and conditioning, the body may burn as many as 600 calories within a 30 minute session.

On December 6th, Pool Worlds 23rd Annual Warehouse Clearance Sale will be featuring amazing savings on Finnleo Saunas! Come join us at 13524 E Sprague Ave from 9 am till 5 pm!

Winter Temperatures - November 12, 2014

Brrrr! The Nation has been frost bitten by the swirling cold weather that has taken the days in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area from highs in the 50’s down to highs in the mid 20’s. Since the winter temperatures have arrived a little early, here are a few tips to keep your hot tub warm and ready!

Keep all of your hot tub supplies handy. Take a moment to check all of your water care products to ensure you have plenty of stock on hand. It’s no fun to venture out to your hot tub for a warm soak just to realize that your hot tub needs water care products you don’t have. Stock up now and relax with the peace of mind that everything you need is within reach.

Check the water chemistry. The cold temperature makes it easy to stay inside and ignore any maintenance that may be required on your hot tub. Instead of standing out in the cold, testing the water chemistry, scoop up a cup or two of water from your hot tub and bring it into your closest Pool World. Take advantage of our knowledgeable staff and free water test for our customers! Plus, you will receive easy to follow instructions for any additions that need to be made. 

Clean your filters. Take five minutes to remove your hot tub filters and clean them. Cleaning the filters will assist with water chemistry, sparkling water assures proper filtration and even extend the life of the filter! A clean filter will allow your hot tub’s heater to work to its full potential.

Check the water level. Make sure that the water is at proper operating level. Usually, this level is at the bottom of the headrest. This will allow for proper filtration, circulation and assures that all the jets and other components are in full working order.

Check your hot tub cover. During the daylight, take a moment to look at your hot tub cover and check its condition. Are there any tears, leakage, mold, deformation or is it too heavy to lift? It may be time to look into a new hot tub cover. There are a variety of new cover options to choose.

Stay safe tonight! - October 31, 2014

Halloween is filled with ghouls, witches, super heroes and princesses. This year it falls on a Friday which means an increase in families and adults taking part in the spooky festivities.

Every Halloween has terrifying statistics that children and adults are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed. This is in part to the dark clothing, masks and the increased amount of pedestrians out in the evening. Since the possibility of being injured is twice as high, please be prepared and stay safe tonight.

Here are a few tips on having a fun filled Halloween night!

  • Make sure costumes fit properly and will not be a tripping hazard.
  • Ensure that all accessories or props with costumes are dull and cannot puncture; they should be short, soft and flexible. Any toy guns, swords or weapons should be left at home.
  • Reduce any loose and flowing fabric to prevent tripping.
  • Choose face paint and make up over a mask. This will allow children and adults to have unobstructed vision.
  • Supervise of children under 13 while trick-or-treating, older children should stay in groups and should have an established curfew. They should be expected to stick to a route.
  • Remind your children to trick-or-treat only well-lit houses with front doors that may be viewed from the street. This includes instructing the kids never to enter any home.
  • Inspect all candy before allowing children to eat it. Avoid handmade treats.

If you are partaking in Halloween adult events and bubbly concoctions, please remember to designate a driver or call a cab. Tonight with the increased foot traffic, it’s not worth the risk.

For all of you adults, who will be adventuring out with your goblins and ghouls, just remember at the end of the night you will have your warm and ready hot tub to climb into after the trick-or-treating is over. Climb in, relax and warm up! For more information on the Hot Spring, Caldera or Free Flow hot tubs, please visit our Residential Hot Tubs page.

  • Reduces ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders which was recently discovered and help improve bacterial gastroenteritis.
  • Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal by the enzyme that makes hydrogen peroxide which is added by the bees during the production process.
  • Increased performance through boosting and maintaining a glycogen levels and is a great natural sweetener.
  • Reduce cough and throat irritation through the use of honey, especially buckwheat honey. Honey has been shown to be just as effective as a single does of dextromethorphan.
  • Blood sugar regulation is also a benefit of honey, because the honey has the exact combination of fructose and glucose works together with the body to regulate blood sugar levels. Some honey is even considered to be low hypoglycemic index.
  • Heals wounds and burns by applying honey to the surface of the wound. This has been proven to be as effective as silver sulfadiazine.
  • Probiotic, some honeys contain large amounts of friendly bacteria. These friendly bacteria’s include 6 species of lactobacilli and 4 species of bifidobactera.
  • Beautiful skin, since honey has anti-bacterial qualities and when honey is combined with other ingredients it can be moisturizing and nourishing to the skin.

Since honey has so many benefits and a variety of uses then the latest recipe is highly recommended:

Today We Remember - September 11, 2014

Today is our 13th Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance to remember the events that occurred on September 11, 2001.

 

 

More than a decade later, our nation is living in a world that was forever changed by the terror attack that took our nation by surprise. What has remained the same since 2001, is that our nation has remained strong and our support and the love for the men and women who provided their services, compassion, courage, faith, and their lives has never wavered and they will forever live on as heroes.

Today we remember the 3000 victims who perished. Today we also remember the policemen, firefighters, emergency rescue teams, all the military branches and every citizen who has protected our Nations freedom.

Today we remember and will never forget.

On days like today, it requires us to look to the light and remain positive. Tuesday’s Children is the light that serves and supports the families and communities that have been directly impacted by the terrorist attacks worldwide. They promote long-term healing and has an outreach program that touches approximately 10,000 individuals. Real compassion, open dialogue, trust helps them create an opportunity for peace building, healing through the community and the perfect timing to inspire hope, dignity and change for a better tomorrow.

Enjoy the Benefits of a Hot Tub! - September 08, 2014

Going into fall can be very uncomfortable for a variety of people who suffer from arthritis, muscle or joint injury, or maybe just a little stiffness. Many sufferers who have never experienced a hot tub don’t realize what health benefits they are missing out on! 

Hot tubs are commonly prescribed by doctors to help alleviate pain from muscle strains, sprains, and other injuries. Taking a few minutes out of every day to soak in hot water helps to accelerate healing while relieving pain.
A hot tub has the ability to relax and sooth sore muscles after a good workout and is amazing at swirling away any stresses that may build up from work or traveling. Or maybe you are just looking for a better night sleep, enjoying a hot tub soak within an hour of going to bed has the ability to place you into a peaceful and enjoyable sleep.

Just imagine at how much a hot tub could improve your daily life! Caldera Hot Tubs wants to make it easy for you to purchase a new hot tub today! Today is the last day to take advantage of their Labor Day Hot Tub Sale! For more information please visit Pool World’s Monthly Promotion page.

The defending Super Bowl champion typically hosts the first game and their opponent is selected by the NFL. Every year the NFL has several teams to choose from but this year it’s funny that Seattle was paired against Green Bay.

Do you remember the last time that Seattle hosted Green Bay? In 2012, it is said that the replacement refs decided the game on a “Hail Mary” If you don’t remember, it’s the game that made a simultaneous possession famous.

Happiness Happens Day! - August 08, 2014

Today, August 8th is Happiness Happens Day!

Here are a few tips to make just not today better but tomorrow and every day after that!

Get to know yourself and like the person you have become! The more time you spend getting to know yourself, you will find out what you love, what inspires you and what you are made of. All of this knowledge will allow you to live a life that makes you happier.

Strengthen your relationships. Our hearts begin to fill with happiness when we create and invest in rich and satisfying relations. Take the time today to make that connection with your family and friends. Take time today to think about the most important relationships you have and think about how you could be a truer friend. Make your intention to love and care about your significant other, your children, your parents, colleagues and your clients.

Create a purpose for living; enjoy what you do for work! Too many people stay in a workplace that doesn’t feed their sense of joy and love. It is said that the biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at doing something that they most enjoy. Increase your happiness by making your work more purposeful.

Create your own attitude! Have you thought about how happy you will be today? It’s a decision that you have probably already made for today. Relax and search for that place in your mind where this decision already lays. Choice is a powerful thing and if you choose to be happy then you will have a wonderful day. Make the decision to be happy and make today more enjoyable!

How do you show gratitude? Creating a mental note to show more gratitude has the ability to change the way you process the world around you. Slowly and surely you will notice that you will be more grateful for the things in your life. The more grateful you are, the more present you will be in your life. Present is defined as here, now and a gift. Learning to be grateful teaches you that the greatest gifts in life are always available to you here and now!

Relax and forgive. Happiness and holding onto a grievance doesn’t work so well together. Let go and forgive because you are making a choice to be happy and to end the suffering. Forgiveness helps you to be happy.

Humor and fun are keys to happiness. Have some fun! Be spontaneous and enjoy life! Humor in life is finding something funny or a brighter side in a bad situation. It makes dealing with disappointment a little easier and more enjoyable!

Celebrate Happiness Happens Day!

Does your swimming pool still have its sparkle? - July 28, 2014

The summer heat has stuck around for the last few weeks and there doesn’t look to be an end in sight!

The summer temperature brings everyone into the backyard to enjoy a nice cool dip in the pool, or maybe just to splash around and have some fun.

After having all of your family and friends at the pool, have you noticed that your pool just isn’t sparkling like it use to? Even after shocking?!

There are a few reasons, but the two most common are over cleaning or backwashing of your filter and turning the pump off.

Sand and DE filters work best when they are slightly dirty because the additional dirt actually helps trap the smaller particles of dirt and impurities from circulating into the pool again. Allow the pressure on the gauge to increase to about 10 psi above regular clean pressure prior to completing the backwash/bump process again.

Ok, the other most common issue is turning the pump off. It doesn’t matter if it’s during the day or night, Pool World recommends the filtration system run 24 hours a day. The more circulation and filtration the pool receives the healthier, clearer and more enjoyable the pool will be! If you do wish or prefer to turn the system off, turn it off just before you go to bed and turn it back on first thing in the morning.

Remember, be patient and allow the filtration system to do its job! This will make your swimming pool look amazing!  For other helpful tips, please visit our Helpful Tips and Handouts.


Enjoy the night sky! - July 25, 2014

This weekend is going to be one of the best times to view the Northern Delta Aquariids Meteor Shower.

This amazing show will be seen across the world but here in the northwest we have a prime location for viewing. The meteor shower actually goes from about mid July until the middle of August each year.

When looking up at the night sky, look for “The Great Square of Pegasus and look down to find Delta Aquarii. This weekend is particularly good because of the new moon that is happening tomorrow July 26th. The new moon allows for an evening without moon light and you can expect to see 15 to 20 meteors per hour.

For many hot tub owners, this is one of their favorite times of year to enjoy a long or late evening/ early morning soak in their hot tub and enjoy the night sky. If you want to experience this in your backyard and want to experience these moments for years to come, please visit our Residential Hot Tubs page.


Keep hydrated in summer heat! - July 23, 2014

This summer has really kicked off with some hot temperatures the past few weeks and it look as if the next ten days are so are going to be the same. The forecast is predicting temperatures between mid 70’s to high 90’s. Six of the ten days are expected to be above 90 degrees and with warmer weather like this it is crucial to stay hydrated!

Here are a few helpful tips for staying hydrated while enjoying the summer heat!!

Kick your morning off right! Start each day with a glass of water (no ice) before enjoying your coffee, tea or juice. This glass of water will help replenish the fluids your body lost overnight and will give you a boost to your day. Don’t forget to fill a water bottle to take with you on the day’s adventure and refill as you need.

Munch down on two or three servings of fruits and vegetables at every meal! Fruits and vegetables are enhanced with water and minerals that you body needs. Any processed foods (including sugars, flours, salty snacks and processed meats) consumed will reduce your body’s water table. Eating a lot of meat adds pressure to your kidneys and will increase your body’s need for more water.

Everyone needs a few moments to themselves! Take a break and enjoy a glass of water! Drinking an extra glass of water will help if you worked out or didn’t squeeze enough fruits or vegetables into your day.

Wanting something with flavor and bubbles? Try substituting your soda and fruit juice with sparkling water and low-sodium vegetable juice! Enjoying these flavorful drinks can help reduce sugar spikes and unwanted reactions within your body to processed drinks.

Be environmentally friendly! Install water filtration at your kitchen sink or use a filtration pitcher! Bottled water is great for when you are on the run but using a filtration system can help cut the expensive cost of bottled water and the waste.

Love cooking with salt? Try using high-quality sea salt. A high quality, unrefined sea salt is rich with minerals, which are an important key to being healthy and hydrated! Sea salt also helps reduce sodium. 


Team & Club Rewards to Caring People for Animals - July 22, 2014

Pool World wants to give a big thanks to James W. for selecting Caring People for Animals as the organization to receive a Team & Club Reward Donation!! Thank you James!!

How often do you use an algaecide? - July 16, 2014

Have you added your weekly does of algaecide to your swimming pool this week?

There are a few good reasons to use an algaecide such as a weekly maintenance dosage and of course treating the dreaded green pool.

Weekly or Bi-Weekly Maintenance Dosage:

Regular usage of an algaecide helps prevent your swimming pool from turning green while providing a few benefits. While using an algaecide, the chlorine consumption is reduced which means swimmers may enjoy lower sanitizer levels. The algaecide also inhibits any build up in the filtration system which allows the life expectancy of the equipment to extend. A few other pluses are ease of use and handling and application, cost effective and widely available.

Dreaded Green Pool:

Using a shock and an algaecide treatment to clear a swimming pool that has turned green is never fun! Adding a combination of a chlorine shock plus an algaecide will increase the time that it will take for the pool to clear.

When having to treat a green pool, please these helpful tips!

1 Double check all of your equipment, this includes the filtration system.

2 Test pH level and adjust as needed before starting treatment. PH needs to be between 7.2-7.4.

3 Brush walls, corners, floors and around all steps, ladders and lights to help remove algae from surfaces.

4 Apply algaecide as directed on container per pool size for “Visible Algae.”

5 Superchlorinate the swimming pool as directed on container for swimming pool size. Allow the swimming pool to circulate. ( 2 lbs per every 10,000 gallons)

6 Allow the swimming pools filtration system to work for 24 to 48 hours (this includes, running the pump continuously until the water is clear). The appearance of the water should gradually improve over this time.

7 The next day, you may want to add a clarifier or flocculent to help expedite the clearing process. Clarifier’s will make the debris bigger to make it easier for your pool to remove debris and flocculents drop dead debris over night to the bottom of pool to be vacuumed ‘to waste’.

**If the pool is clear and you’ve maintained a chlorine level of 2-5 ppm, start using your normal chlorine application. If it’s clear but no chlorine is left, add a normal shock application and add normal chlorine dosage.

Enjoy cooking outdoors! - July 09, 2014

If you were in the Spokane or Coeur d’Alene area yesterday, you know all to well that our summer temperatures are warmer then normal. With temperatures into the mid 90’s and higher, it makes it hard to consider staying inside to cook dinner and heat up your home even more! It’s too hot to turn on the oven!

Instead of heating up the house, step outside and cook dinner in your backyard! There are endless possibilities to create on your barbecue or grill!

Here’s an amazing recipe from Big Green Egg! It’s easy, fast and healthy!

Chicken Stir-Fry

Ingredients

2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic

1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed

½ cup rice wine

½ cup light soy sauce

½ cup chicken stock

¼ cup hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (optional)

½ cup canola oil

Preparation

Set the Egg for direct cooking at 500 degrees F.

Combine the sesame oil, 1-1/2 teaspoons of the garlic, and 1-1/2 teaspoons minced ginger in a small bowl, add the chicken and toss to coat. Let the chicken marinate for 30 minutes.

To make the sauce, mix the remaining 1-1/2 garlic and ginger, rice wine, soy sauce, chick stock, hoisin sauce, rice wine vinegar, sugar, cornstarch, and chili garlic sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.

Place a Paella Pan on the grid and preheat for 2 minutes.

Place the canola oil and chicken in the paella pan. Close the lid of the egg and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, or until seared on the all sides.

Add broccoli florets and stems, carrots, and water chestnuts and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring well. Add the sauce and continue to cook until the sauce has thickened. Remove the paella pan from the Egg.

Transfer the stir-fry to a bowl and garnish with the sesame seeds.

Summer heat has arrived! - July 08, 2014

Hot summer days are here. The weather channel has a scorching prediction for the next ten days! Are you ready… Here it is! Five of the ten days are predicted to be at or over 100 degrees!

On these hot days of summer it is hard not to remember those days as a kid when you would spend hours swimming in the pool! Remember jumping in, cooling off, playing with friends and at the end of every day sleeping like a baby.

Enjoy this heat by cooling off in your own backyard pool. During hot spells like this, it is hard to image the idea of working out and getting exercise. Somehow, as adults, we’ve taken the fun out of exercising and burning calories. 

Here are a few tips to enjoy this hot weather and get in some exercise during this weather.

Set a day to get together and make it a weekly plan. Invite your family and friends to join you in your backyard pool, emphasizing fun and fitness. Make this a routine by scheduling a standing weekly appointment for everyone to meet in your backyard!

Select the right type of music! No matter what exercises or game that is being played, add fun, upbeat music to create a party vibe. This will encourage your friends to return and keep you going without it feeling like work.

Choose games or activities that everyone will enjoy. Pick something that the whole group will enjoy, for example if people like to dance, create a dance party.

Provide healthy snacks and refreshments. It’s always nice to have refreshments ready and available after a great workout! Work up an appetite and enjoy summer by being at the pool!

Life goes by so quickly and summertime flies by! Make the most of your summer by bringing your family and friends together around your swimming pool. Enjoy life, get fit,  stay healthy and have fun at the same time!

Today we are featuring Big Green Egg Grills. Big Green Eggs have gained massive popularity throughout the United States in the past 20 years. Chances are you know someone who owns one and if you do, you have heard about their famous and extremely popular dishes such as their baby back ribs. There’s a reason why Pool World carries the Big Green Egg!

Since 1974 Big Green Egg Inc has been supplying the highest degree of precision for cooking, grilling, baking, searing, and smoking. This precision comes from the design and control of air flow through the draft door at the bottom of the egg to flow into the cooking chamber and up out through the dual functioning cast iron top. By adjusting the draft door and the cast iron top, The Big Green Egg has the ability to cook up to 750 degrees Fahrenheit.

New Pool Installations - June 11, 2014

Summer is here! High schooler’s have graduated and it’s time to celebrate! There is no better way than in you own backyard especially when you have a swimming pool.

We are excited to announce that Pool World has started and is constructing a number of fabulous inground swimming pools.  Each of these pools has been customized to meet the needs of each family.

In the collection of pools currently being installed there is a gunite inground swimming pool that has been designed with cascade bubblers, automatic pool cover, slide, multi colored laminar deck jets, and a full water care automation system.

Another swimming pool being built will be a concrete wall vinyl lined pool with an amazing view and an automatic pool cover. An automatic pool cover for pool owners offers ease of operation and energy efficiency. For example, one of the pools will be installed next to agriculture land which has a tendency to kick up dust. This dusty environment can make owning a swimming pool very difficult but with an autocover. It reduces the amount of dust and debris that will be found in the pool. It makes owning a pool in almost any environment possible! 

One of the other pictures you will see is at the beginning of installation of a swimming pool. In this particular picture, you will also notice that the home is under construction as well. The family that is having Pool World install this pool is creating their forever home. It will be a custom home for their family to live, grow, and create memories together. A big part of their perfect home is having a backyard to entertain, exercise, and most importantly, relax.

     

   

Each family will be making memories in and around their swimming pool for years to come. Creating a space in their own backyard will provide a fun and relaxing place that will encourage family time and summers get together!

Did you know that the majority of adults (58%) agree that cooking outside is more fun and relaxing than dining out? Stay home, enjoy the fresh air, and avoid all the hassles of traveling, dressing up, and the crowds when eating out.

Did you know that over seventy percent of Americans enjoy cooking outdoors because it’s more fun and it’s easier to promote healthier lifestyle habits? This means spending more time outside verses sitting on the couch and being cooped up in the house to eating healthier and making smarter food choices.

Did you know that a survey was done asking cooks what their go-to tool was? The results are in and the most popular tool is the tong with the spatula and brush coming in at a near second. The third most popular is the rubs and marinades used to spice up the flavor!

If you are looking to add a new barbecue to your deck or backyard, please visit our Barbecue/Grills page.

Swimming - April 30, 2014

 

It’s almost swimming time! Did you know that swimming and pool exercise has been known to reduce stress, increase flexibility and burn calories?

While exercising, if swimming or hitting the gym, you will notice an improved mood because as you exercise, the body releases chemicals to your brain. Enjoying time in water helps to relieve tension in your muscles and body while supporting movements, balancing while providing a soft environment for exercise. The soft environment allows your body to have an increased range of movement which results in increased flexibility. One of the best benefits of swimming is the amazing amount of calories that are burned in a short amount of time. At an average swimming pace, you can burn up to 300 calories in one thirty minute session.

Swimming has benefits that everyone could use, experience, and improve their daily life! For more information on swimming pools please visit our Inground Swimming Pools page.

Pool Safety Tips for Pets - April 28, 2014

 

Spring has arrived and summer is on it's way! Warmer weather means more people and pets will be adventuring out into the water. Here are some basic rules to keep your beloved pets safe around the family pool!

Every family pet should be taught where the steps are located in your pool. Heaven forbid, if they fall into the swimming pool, they will know how to get out safely.

A fence around the swimming pool should be installed. In many areas this is required by law.

If your animals routinely use your swimming pool, be sure to install an easy-exit pet safe ladder.

Your pets are just as precious as children are and should be supervised around the pool at all times.

Pool covers can be dangerous for pets. Most pool covers float on top of the water and are not secure to anything and are solid color which may be deceptive to pets. The cover looks like a hard surface but are not always as secure as they appear.

Familiarize your pet with water at a young age and every summer season after. Don't assume that they know how to swim.

The pool industry offers a variety of pool alarm systems. One of hte most popular ones floats on the surface of the water and will be triggered when there is a disturbance in the water.

If an animal experiences a near drowning or water injury, it's best to take your pet to the veterinarian office immediately.

For more safety tips, helpful tips and handouts please visit our How-To Worksheets page.

 

 

 


New Recipe! - April 25, 2014

Today it may not be 70 but after this weekend, it looks like the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area will start to shine with warmer temperatures and bluer skies!

With warmer weather and the days lasting longer you will start to notice that your neighbors are enjoying their backyards, maybe doing some lawn work and even barbecuing! Bring on the warmer weather!

Here is one of our favorite new Weber Recipes!

Moroccan-Spiced Chicken Legs Under Bricks

Marinade

1/2 cup packed roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1/3 cup packed roughly chopped fresh mint leaves

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons kosher salt

2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons paprika

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 whole chicken legs, each 10 to 12 ounces, trimmed of excess fat and skin

1 tablespoon roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1 tablespoon roughly chopped mint leaves

 

In a small bowl combine the marinade ingredients.

Cut a few deep slashes in the meaty part of each chicken leg. Place the chicken in a large resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours, turning the bag occasionally.

Prepare the grill for direct and indirect cooking over medium-high heat (400 to 500 degrees F).

Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Place the chicken skin side down, over indirect medium-high heat. Place a sheet pan on the top of the chicken and weight it down with two foil wrapped bricks. Close the lid and cook until golden around the edges, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the bricks and sheet pan and using a large spatula, carefully turn the chicken legs over, being careful not to tear the skin. Replace the weight, close the lid and cook until the juices run clear and the meat is no longer pink at the bone. This should be 20 minutes more. If desired, to crisp the skin, remove the weight, turn the chicken skin side down, and grill over direct medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the grill, garnish with cilantro and mint, serve warm.

 

This recipe is perfect for Spring and Summer! For more recipes, please visit our Recipe of the Week!

Earth Day 2014 - April 22, 2014

 

Today is Earth Day!

April 22, 1970 was the start to the beginning of the environmental movement with approximately 20 million people across the nation, participating in a national teach-in on environmental issues and environmental deterioration. Today, our society has been raised to be eco-friendly and green, but 44 years ago it wasn’t this way. Over the past years, this one day has raised awareness about the environment for people who are concerned about oil spills, pollution from factories and power plants, raw sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, reduction of wilderness, air pollution and more.

Today, over one billion people in 192 countries will celebrate our earth and take action to protect the planet. Earth Day is a day of action and will be celebrated by organized demonstrations, clean up crews, planting trees, and much more!

The 2014 national theme for Earth Day is “Green Cities.” This year Spokane is celebrating the environmental progress in policies and highlighting the work being done in our local area. This year is extremely important to our area because it marks 40th Anniversary of Expo ’74 which was the first World’s Fair with an environmental theme.

This Saturday, April 26, 2014, Spokane will be hosting a celebration at RiverfrontPark from 10 am till 5 pm. Come and celebrate the Earth. The event will be showcasing the environmental progress that has been made and important work that still needs to be done! Help build a thriving community of citizens who are empowered about saving the Earth!

April is almost here! Now is the perfect time to open your swimming pool and prepare for summer fun in the sun! A part of preparing for summer is making sure that your swimming pool will be safe. Knowing the basics of pool safety is a must and can reduce accidents this summer.
 
Sharing and communicating safety concerns will create a safe and pleasurable experience in your backyard.
 
·        Post safety rules around your pool.
·        Check your local ordinances and codes for safety requirements
·        Use non-slip materials on your pool deck, diving board and ladders.
·        Ladders or steps should be installed at both ends of the swimming pool and should have handrails.
·        Check with a professional pool contractor to be sure the depth is sufficient for a diving board or slide. Always have a slide installed in the deep area of the pool.
·        There should be a fence around all sides of the pool with a locked gate. This is to protect children from entering the swimming pool area when there is no supervision.
·        Depth markers should be visible. Use safety float line at the transition between the shallow to deep end.
·        Teach children how to float or swim as soon as possible.
·        Adult supervision is a must. This is someone who should be comfortable in and out of the water. Being certified in CPR is recommended.
·        No one should ever swim alone.
·        Caution children against rough housing and playing around the swimming pool.
·        When using a water slide, always go feet first.
·        Before driving and sliding into a swimming pool, make sure to check that other swimmers are out of the way.
·        Keep rescue devices and supplies near by and updated.
·        Teach Children what to do in case of emergency.
·        Keep electrical appliances such as radios away from the pool areas.

Music does wonders for the mind, body and soul! Enjoying your favorite tunes or sounds helps to relax and calm away any anxiety.  It also provides peace of mind, will boost your immune system and helps to spur creativity.
 
Music has a variety of rather interesting affects on our every day life. A University of London study was able to show that listening to happy or sad music; even short pieces influence how a person interprets facial expressions.
 
Did you know that your creativity can be improved by ambient noise? The moderate noise level is thought to be the sweet spot for creativity. When music or noises are played at a lower range it increases the brains ability of processing the music and promotes abstract processing which results in higher creativity.
 
Recently, The American Journal of Occupational Therapy completed a study that showed listening to Classical music can improve visual attention. The results of this study compared children and adults with classical music, white noise and silence. Classical receiving the highest scores while silence received the worst scores of all.
 
Hot Spring Highlife and Limelight hot tubs have the ability to combine the benefits of routinely using a hot tub with music. Just imagine the possibilities!

Helpful tips for pool owners during Spring - March 13, 2014

 

After months of cold and snow, we are very anxiously awaiting the warm weather! Here are a few recommendations to help prepare for Spring and your upcoming pool opening.

 

Check Inventory: 

Check the water care products that are leftover from the prior year; make sure they have been properly stored throughout the winter and have not been exposed to any moisture or frozen. Make a list of any you are out of or running low on.

 

Check the pool equipment and accessories for anything that may be broken or needs to be replaced:

Check all of your equipment thoroughly, your pool filter, cleaner, pump, accessories and any gaskets or o-rings that may have been removed during winterizing. Make sure that everything is in functioning order and no parts or piece are broken, missing or worn out.  It is always better to address any issues before opening your swimming pool.

 

Clean and remove any debris from your pool cover and decks: 

If you use a winter pool cover, make sure to remove any debris such as leaves and pine needles that is on top of the cover. This includes any standing water that may have collected on top of the cover. We recommend using a pool cover pump connected to a hose to pump off excess water.  Sweeping any debris that has collected around the pool decks will also be helpful. When it comes time to open the pool, you will be thankful to have a clean working space.

Pool World Tax Related Deductions - March 11, 2014
 
April 15th is approaching quickly and we all know that means tax day is near!
 
We want to help you save some money and get all of the deductions you deserve. We recommend that you visit the IRS.gov website for money saving tips. To help get you started we have complied a list of a few common deductions that are often overlooked.
 
- Sales tax (especially for big ticket purchases) cars, boats, hot tubs, saunas, etc.
 
- Home Buyer credits if they apply.
 
- Energy Saving Home Improvements.
 
- Deductions for Medicare premiums for the self employed.
 
You can also review the IRS 502Publication if you are planning to deduct your hot tub, sauna, or tanning bed as medical equipment expense. If these products are used to provide relief from a physical aliment or illness that your doctor has prescribed treatment you can claim them as a deduction. 
 
People suffering from Fibromyalgia, back pain, arthritis, or other medical problems often get a great deal of relief from the use of a hot tub once or twice a day. Saunas are being used for detoxification and also to aid in both physical and massage therapy. Doctors are prescribing the use of tanning beds to patients suffering from Vitamin D deficiencies. Keep in mind that the use of these products must be prescribed by a licensed medical physician in order to qualify for a medical deduction on your taxes.
  
If you need a copy of your receipt for a hot tub, sauna, or tanning bed that you purchased from us last year, please give us a call at 509-928-6585. Of course you will want to consult your own tax preparation expert to make sure you qualify under IRS rules for any of the above deductions.

Team & Club Rewards to Spokane Humane Society - February 12, 2014

We want to give a HUGE THANKS to our customer Rick V. for donating their Team & Club Rewards to the Spokane Humane Society! Thank you for supporting such a great local organization!!

The Spokane Humane Society is a local non-profit public charity dedicated to the welfare of companion animals. Since 1897, we have acted as a refuge for animals in peril by providing care, shelter, and placement for tens of thousands of lost, neglected, and unwanted animals in the greater Spokane area. The number of animals they serve has varied over the years based upon the mission and role as animal control or in the current role as a companion animal adoption shelter.

Rick was able to donate a Team & Club Rewards through the purchase of his new Hot Spring Sovereign hot tub. The Sovereign has been designed to fit 6 adults comfortably with 24 jets and an expansive seating arrangement. There is a spot for everyone to relax in. This hot tub is a must have at 355 gallons of warm relaxing water.

It works, why upgrade?!! - February 10, 2014
 
Pool World strongly believes in using the products that we promote and sell. Recently Kariann, a long time member of the Pool World family upgraded her 14 year old Hot Spring Sovereign to a brand new Hot Spring Vanguard. After enjoying a few months, she had some wonderful things that she wanted to share. Here is her story:
 
 "If you, like me, have had your hot tub a number of years and know the many benefits of enjoying a relaxing soak, it’s a wonder why you would consider upgrading to a newer tub... After all yours works just fine, however, if you are ready for an upgrade or to learn about the latest and greatest tubs available you should read on.
 
This last fall we got a new Hot Spring Vanguard to replace our aging 14 year old Hot Spring Sovereign. We have been pleasantly pleased with the many great new features we are enjoying! In the past we really weren’t big jet people, but the jet action alone in the new tub makes the upgrade worth it! There are so many more jets all located strategically to cover virtually any part of our body. We both have our seats with our own personal masseuse (the MotoMassage jets) and find we are both using them on our backs and noticing a huge difference. Strong or gentle, whatever action we desire from the jets is easily controlled by the convenient air controls and the jet selector; we are able to customize what jets we want to use. We even feel the seating is more comfortable in this new tub.
 
The WellSpring water feature with it’s soothing sound enhances our enjoyment when we just want to sit back, relax and listen to the sounds of nature in the warm water.
 
The LED digital controls are simple to operate day or night and allow for easy adjustments to temperature and light settings. Our old Sovereign had an interior light but the new one has several different colors to choose from and really makes a dramatic statement. We sometimes turn on the color wheel at night while entertaining out on our deck and our guests always comment on it. This new tub is also Bluetooth compatible if we want to enjoy music while entertaining or soaking. Although caring for our hot tub was easy in the past, caring for the new Vanguard is even easier. The Freshwater III ozonator allows for crystal clear, clean, fresh water with very little care. The tub always looks and smells fresh and inviting!
 
We also chose to upgrade our hot tub cover. We live in an area where we can receive a lot of snow and although we remove it from the cover as fast as possible, the elements had us replacing our cover every 2 to 3 years. The new Smartop hard cover we opted for holds up to 800 pounds so we don’t have to worry about the weight of the snow when we are away from home and unable to remove it right away. Plus, if one of the grand kids decides to use the cover as a seat it isn’t an issue. The cover is easy to remove, has a clean modern design that looks great. We feel our new cover may hold up better to our occasional visits from a curious deer, bear or moose!
 
We love the new hot tub and Smartop cover! Our only disappointment is in ourselves for not replacing it with a newer model sooner. So if you sometimes think about replacing your hot tub and then wonder why ... these are a few of the reasons you should consider."

Cold snap is coming! - January 28, 2014
Cross the Nation, everyone has been saying that the 2013/2014 Winter has been extremely unpredictable! Everything from snow and cold snaps in Florida to warmer then normal and dry winter in the Inland Northwest!
 
Since this winter has already been so weird, it’s not unexpected that there is another winter weather system coming into our area. This time is a cold snap that will be occurring during the first full week of February. Everyone should be prepared for highs in the 20’s and lows in the lower single digits around 5 degrees F.
 
 
The cold snap is still a few days away which allow plenty of time to prepare your hot tub for ease of use during the cold temperatures.
 
Keep all of your hot tub supplies handy. Double check all of your products and make sure that you have plenty of stock on hand. There is nothing worst than going out to your hot tub for a warm soak and realizing that you are out of chlorine, enhance shock or Silk Balance. Stock up now and relax with the piece of mind that everything you need is within reach.
 
Check the water chemistry. It’s easy to forget about maintenance the hot tub when it’s cold out side because it’s no fun to stand out there testing the water chemistry. Instead, bring a cup or two of water from your hot tub to Pool World and our knowledgeable staff will test it for you! Plus, you will receive easy to follow instructions for any additions that need to be made. 
 
Clean your filters. Warmer weather always makes it easier to accomplish things during the winter. Right now is the perfect time to grab the filters and clean them before it gets cold again. Clean filters will assist with water chemistry, sparkling water assures proper filtration and even extend the life of the filter!
 
Check the water level. Make sure that the water level is above the skimmer line. This will allow for proper filtration, circulation and assures that all the jets and other components are in working order.
 
Check your hot tub cover. During the daylight look at your hot tub cover and check its condition. Is there any tears, leakage, mold, deformed or is it too heavy to lift? It may be time to look into a new hot tub cover. There are a variety of new cover options to choose.
 
These five items will ensure that your hot tub is ready for your enjoyment during the fast approaching cold weather. For more assistance with your hot tub please visit our Residential Hot Tubs page.

Sweating - January 21, 2014

 

It’s the middle of January with gloomy cold days that may lead you to feeling a little sad, have tendency to oversleep and over eat or even depression. To fight against these symptoms as well as many others, there are a variety of things that may be done but two popular ones are exercise and sauna bathing.

Sauna bathing and exercise both have one key thing in common, sweat! Sweating has a variety of benefits such flushing toxins from the body. Flushing toxins like copper, lead, zinc, nickel, mercury from our bodies will allow your body to function more effectively. Toxins are stored in organs such as liver, stomach and kidneys. A routine of sweating and detoxification of the body has the potential to leave the body feeling “lighter” and having more energy. The body’s immune system will become stronger and even your circulatory system will be improved. Toxins that accumulate in the body may also affect our brain functions, removing these will result in a sounder sleep and a better concentration.

Warm Weather - January 15, 2014
 
The last few weeks our January weather has resembled normal weather for March. Even the normal precipitation is down across the board for rain and snow! Weather like this can cause some pool owners to worry if their is enough chlorine in their pool. Here are a few tips to help ease your mind and how to check your pool.
 
  • If the pool is frozen like an ice cube, you have nothing to worry about. Remember to check on it periodically as the weather starts to get warmer.
  • If pool has thawed but is still cold, scoop up a cup or two of water below the surface of the water. Take your handy dandy water chemistry test strips and test to see if there is a residual of cholorine present in the water.
  • If the test strip shows any sign of chlorine, you are find to wait a few more weeks and test again.
  • If the test strip doesn't show any chlorine, then go to your closest Pool World location and pick up liquid chlorine. A employee should be able to assist you with getting the proper amount for application for your specific swimming pool.

Team & Club Rewards to The Pink Shamrock Foundation - January 14, 2014

Pool World wants to give a big thanks to Tim M. for selecting The Pink Shamrock Foundation as the organization to receive a $100 Donation!! Thank you Tim!!

 

The Pink Shamrock Foundation is local organization that was started right here in Spokane, WA with the mission to ensure that all women – especially those with limited funds and resources – have access to the care and support they need to fight breast cancer and win.

The Pink Shamrock Foundation is a tribute to Denny Anne Murphy, who struggled for years before being overcome by breast cancer. She was blessed with family and friends that were able to be there for her every step of the way. After she passed away, her family and friends began to wonder how people face similar battles without any support and this is how her friends and family decided to create The Pink Shamrock Foundation.

Tim was able to make this donation possible through their purchase of a Hot Spring Hot Spot Tx hot tub. This hot tub is perfect for two adults who want to enjoy a moment of relaxation. A few upgrades were also added to this little tub for two including a SilentFlo 5000 circulation pump to ensure clean clear sparkling water, Ozone and Water care package.

National Soup Month! - January 09, 2014
 
It’s National Soup Month in January! During January it’s normally cold here in the Inland Northwest but we have had warmer days then our normal winter forecast but it doesn’t mean that a cup or bowl of hot soup won’t take the chill away. This is time of year is the ideal time to practice your soup-making skills.
Everyone enjoys a warm bowl of soup, from thick, creamy, calorie laden soup, to water-based and healthier broth and even a vegetable chili. It doesn’t matter where you are at in the world; every country has its own recipes and traditions.
Here’s a recipe that every grill master should try! Yes, you can make one mean Tomato Soup using your grill! Your grill will be your secret ingredient, the grill will help add an abundance of flavor instead of blanching them in boil water.
 
Grilled Tomato Soup
 
Ingredients:
3 pounds ripe tomatoes
1 cup fresh basil leaves
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 shallot, chopped
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
1 dash Tabasco
 
 
 
Preparation:
Clean and preheat your grill. Your cooking surface needs to be really clean.
Combine olive oil with salt and pepper. Cut the tomatoes in half and lightly brush the cut sides with the olive oil. Reserve the remaining olive oil for later. Place the tomatoes cut side down on a medium hot grill. Close lid and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes.
 
Remove tomatoes from grill when they are browned and skin is loosened. Set aside to cool. When the tomatoes are cool enough to work with, remove the skins and seeds.
 
Place in a blender or food processor with reserved olive oil and remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.
 
This soup may be served hot or chilled. If you choose to serve this soup chilled, place it into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. The flavors will blend over time so overnight is better. If you want to serve the soup hot, transfer it to a large sauce pan and bring to a light boil. Serve immediately.
 
Just imagine what different flavors could be achieved with this recipe when cooked on a variety of grills. Here at Pool World, we carry Big Green Egg, Weber, Traeger and Louisiana and for more information on these, please visit our Barbecue/Grills page.

New Year's Resolution - January 02, 2014
 
It’s a NEW year! Every year people look at the past year and see a few flaws or things that they could have done better and this year they don’t want to make the same mistake. This always results in making a new years resolution of some sort. 
 
Have you made yours yet? Well if you have selected one of these reasons below this year, you are not alone! These are a few of the most popular resolutions every year... Drink Less Alcohol, Eat Healthy Food, Get a Better Education, Get a Better Job, Get Fit, Lose Weight, Manage Debt, Manage Stress, Quit Smoking, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Save Money, Take a Trip, or Volunteer to Help Others.
 
This year take a few of the following items into consideration when making your New Year’s resolution:
 
Make it something you really want. Don’t make a resolution because it’s something someone else wants you to do or something you “should” want. Select something that fits into your own lifestyle and values.
 
Quality not Quantity. If you are going to select more then one resolution, keep it at or under three. Make only a few resolutions that you intend to keep. It ensures that you are focusing on the goals that you truly want.
 
Be specific. In your goal, include time line or dates that are realistic. For an example, instead of saying “get to the gym more,” set a schedule such as “I’m going to the gym on Tuesday and Thursdays after work.”
 
Automation. Use automation to help assist you with completing your goals by setting alarms or reminders. For an example, if you are trying to pay down debt, the calculate the amount out of each check and then have it automatically deposited or paid toward that debt. It takes all the effort out of remembering or writing a check.
 
Make a plan. Create a series of smaller goals in order to complete and accomplish the larger goal. It helps to have a plan of action.
 
Keep all of these recommendations in mind when choosing a New Year’s resolution that way, at this time next year you are able to check them off your list!
 
If your resolution has to do with feeling better, getting fit, losing weight, managing stress, or anything else to improving your life then Pool World has a variety product to assist you with your resolution! Come into one of our four stores to find the special product for your resolution! To find one of our stores, please visit our Location and Hours page.

Winter Pool Installations - December 20, 2013

 

It’s almost Christmas and the snow is starting to fall and our construction department is hard at work installing and prepping for multiple pool installations this winter.

Over the past few weeks our area has seen some really cold temperatures and our weather has been a little unpredictable but this doesn’t stop our crews. During that last cold snap when everything was dead frozen our crews plowed through some tough rock to excavate this new pool. Actually, it was easier to get through the rock then the dirt because it was just that frozen.

This particular job is located right here in the SpokaneValley. The picture that is depicted below is a 18x40 gunite swimming pool in process. In the next few months this pool will be completed and designed with a variety of special features just for their family. This pool design includes all the bells and whistles including colored lights, a diving board, an automatic cover, a slide, multiple colored laminar deck jets, a sun bathing deck, cascade bubblers, a full automation with communication through iPhone app and pc connection and even automated water care system.

One of our favorite aspects of any gunite pool is the custom interior finish. When creating a custom pool, there are a variety of finishes to select, including different textures, colors and even tile options. The pool is created to meet the desires of our clients.

For more information on residential pools, please visit our Gunite swimming pools page.

It is famous for retaining heat while leaving every ounce of moisture in your food. Can you image a casseroles, pizza, pies, cobblers, beef, poultry, lamb or even vegetables having more flavor and juice? It’s fabulous.
 
The Egg has been designed to be a Smoker as well. The insulating ceramic of the Big Green Egg allows it to retain the more heat, longer while cooking. As mentioned earlier, the dampers allow you to control temperature precisely to where you want them, even at low temperatures. Create succulent smoking results with ham, turkey, lamb, chicken or any other of your favorite pieces of meat! What will you try to smoke first?

Finnleo Sauna Sale - December 02, 2013
Finnleo Sauna Sale going on December 7th!
 
 
   
 
We are super excited to offer a product that can drastically change and improve your daily life! Here are a few of the benefits.
 
Detoxification: while enjoying the heat within a sauna, your body’s core temperature will start to increase. This will result in a deeper sweat that promotes toxins that are trapped within our body by flushing them out through sweat glands. Toxins that are commonly released from the body may include, sodium, sulfur, led, nickel, mercury, zinc and there are a variety more.
 
Anti-Aging and Skin Purification: As you are enjoying the warmth relaxing minutes within your sauna, you will start to notice that your skin will appear tighter, firmer and healthier. The heat from enjoying a sauna will increase blood flow throughout the body, this includes the largest organism on the human body, skin.
 
Weight Loss: As your body’s core temperature is increased, your body has to continuously work at cooling itself off. During this process, the body will start to sweat, increase your heart rate, increase blood flow and increase your metabolic rate. These cause and affect of enjoying the heat in a sauna will result in more calories being burned. With repeated use over time and conditioning, the body may burn as many as 600 calories within a 30 minute session.

The Spokane Humane Society Furr Ball 2013 - November 25, 2013

Pool World has partnered with the Spokane Humane Society for the last few years and it has really been a wonderful partnership.

Over the past weekend the Spokane Humane Society had their Annual Furr Ball fund raiser at the Davenport Hotel. This event was absolutely wonderful and the Pool World employee’s who attended had an amazing time and served a wonderful organization. This is an event that we would recommend for everyone to attend at least once! It's a wonderful date night, great food and awesome company!

While attending their fundraiser, there were a few things that we learned. It cost $3000 to feed all of their animals for a month and that their shelter is a non-kill shelter with placement rate of 96 percent. Another shocking fact that was shared was that in December 2012 it cost the organization $7000 to heat and maintain a comfortable living temperature within the shelter. It’s shocking but a true reality for their organization.

Remember as the temperatures drop, please bring in and provide a warm, loving and enjoyable environment for all of your pets.

 


New Building - November 21, 2013
Pool World is making more history by purchasing the Last Lap property across from our valley location at 13524 E Sprague Ave. As a company we are very excited with the building and the plans for the future. A part of this plan is to have a new high tech show room and space to feature our sales, service and construction department abilities and showcase what Pool World has to offer. Our administration department will also be housed in the building, in the near future.
 
As staff, we are very excited with the improvements and the constant progression of this project and cannot wait for it to be completed.
 
This specific project does a few wonderful things for Pool World and our great customers. Our staff in the service and construction departments will be employed through the cold winter months, they will be able to work inside and escape from the fringed temperatures. This will help keep our knowledgeable, experienced, qualified and skilled staff employed during this time so when spring time comes and pool repairs and openings are at a demand, we have this staff to assist you. A project like this also helps to stimulate the local economy because it keeps our community employed when in years previously this hasn’t been the case.
 
We are excited! Very Excited! Here are a few snapshots from the recent work that is going on at our new property.

Snow has started to fall! - November 05, 2013

Once again, the weather has taken a surprising turn! This time, it includes cold weather and snow falling. If you are like most of us in the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area; you weren’t quit ready for snow. For gosh sakes, it’s only November 5th.

 

Well there is one way that we can think of to help enjoy this spurt of winter! Get ready, set, go and hurry up and climb into your hot tub. This is our favorite way to enjoy snowflakes falling. The air may be crisp and snow may be falling but while you are sitting in your hot tub, you will be submersed in warm swirling jets and the steam rising will help keep your face warm.

Ok, if you do not have a hot tub… Now is the time to start thinking, planning and making it happen before Thanks Giving. Soaking in a hot tub is a lot more enjoyable when you share your time with a loved one! Check out our Residential Hot Tubs page!

Happy Halloween! - October 31, 2013

 

Today like every other Halloween is filled with goblins, ghouls, witches, super heroes and fairies. While adventuring out tonight with your family and friends, please keep a few things in mind to have a fun, safe and eventful night!

Halloween has a horrible and terrifying statistic that children and adults are twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed as on any other day of the year. Since the possibility of being injured is twice as high, be mindful to protect your children by having constant supervision, planning a route, having flashlights and cell phones.

Here are a few other recommendations on having a fun filled night!

  • Make sure costumes fit properly and will not be a tripping hazard
  • Ensure that all accessories or props with costumes are dull and cannot puncture, they should be short, soft and flexible. Any toy guns, swords or weapons should be left at home.
  • Any loose and flowing fabric is reduces to prevent being caught on fire.
  • Choose face paint and make up over a mask. This will allow children and adults to have unobstructed vision.
  • Supervision of children under 13 while trick-or-treating, older children should stay in groups and should have an established curfew. They should be expected to stick to a route.
  • Remind your children to trick-or-treat only well-lit houses with front doors that may be viewed from the street. This includes instructing the kids never to enter any home.
  • Inspect all candy before allowing children to eat it. Avoid handmade treats.

For all of you adults who will be adventuring out with your goblins and ghouls, just remember at the end of the night you will have your warm and ready hot tub to climb into after the trick-or-treating is over. Climb in, relax and warm up!

The Benefits of Water - October 28, 2013
Pool World is all about water! Water is apart of everything and this is why we have passionately believed and share the benefits of water.
 
 
 
 
There are a variety of diseases and illnesses that affect people every day and water therapy has the power to improve their condition as well as their day.
 
Soaking daily in a hot tub will provide relief to aching joints and muscles from strain or arthritis. Soaking will help with Diabetes by reducing blood sugar levels and increases circulation and flow. The increased circulation of blood flow will also reduce inflammation throughout the body while increasing healing of the body.
 
Enjoying time in a swimming pool also has benefits that cannot be found any where else but in water. Water offers an ideal place to enjoy aerobic exercise without the harsh impact on your skeletal system. While being immersed in water, your body bears only part of your weight. At your waist it’s 50 percent and at chest level it reduces to 25 to 35 percent. This allows your muscles, joints, limbs and the rest of your body to exercise and enjoy the movement without the strain of gravity. Swimming increases flexibility, muscle tone and strength. Did you know that swimming can improve the daily life of people who suffer from asthma symptoms! The moist air does wonders fro the lungs and symptoms such as snoring, mouth-breathing and the rest of the respiratory system.
 
We saved the best for last… Water relaxes us and our bodies respond almost magically when wet! Watch this amazing video that expands on the benefits of water Video WTD - The Magic of Water!
