THOROUGH SERVICE MAKES FOR A HEALTHY POOL
We hold our team to the highest standards, and make sure that our professional cleaning services are visible in the quality and condition of your pool. Every staff member must follow a rigid series of steps when cleaning your pool, and they will provide you with a full checklist of all services preformed when they were at your home. You'll know what happened, and when it is safe to swim. Take a look at our approach:
Pollen, blooms, wind-blown bark mulch, spring flowers, left-over leaves, and fresh grass clippings can create quite a challenging environment for pool cleaners. Usually, rising water temperatures also coincide with this spring mess. Algae blooms can quickly become unsightly and out of control. Total Pool Care takes a proactive approach with timely filter services and preemptive algaecide applications.
Not only is it important to keep your pool clean and in proper working order, it is imperative to continually check all aspects of your system's operational status. We thoroughly examine every aspect of your pool's performance. This not only stops unnecessary breakdowns, but also increases the life of your system's components.

Empty Pump Pot Baskets
Net & Brush Pool
Vacuum or Leaf-Master Pool
Program Control Panel
Service Automatic Cleaner
Add Water (if needed)
Swim load and water loss are important factors to consider come the Summer season. Extra attention should be given to the water level in your pool.
Intense heat can cause pools in our area to lose about 1/8” of water per day. Also, toys, flippers, goggles, water guns, and other items left floating in the pool can block water from flowing into the skimmer. Any of these events or a lack of adequate water will result in your pool motor becoming very hot. This will likely damage the thread sealant on your plumbing fittings and possibly cause the motor to fail. We will always add water when needed, but a combined effort is our best chance of getting the most life out of your pool's pump.
Swim load is the amount of swimmers in a given week. If one person swims every day, this number is 7. A swim load of 15 is average, 50 is high. Pools with high levels of swimmers will require more sanitation and filtration. The system will need to run longer and splash out will cause water loss.

Falling leaves are the biggest offender in Autumn. A wide variety of native trees in the Woodlands and the consistent arrival of breezy cold fronts combine to wreak havoc from October to January. The sheer volume of this foliage can block water from flowing into the skimmers if not checked often. The amount of debris can lead to ineffective filtration and pump damage. The state of each skimmer basket and pump pot basket should be checked every week as well.
Dry winds evaporate water; even though the summer months have passed the water level of your pool should be watched carefully.

Most pools will have some type of freeze protection; we will ensure the proper operation of each type during the first cold snap. Every heater has a ventilation system that should be cleared of debris regularly. Total Pool Care will start your heater once a month as part of a comprehensive equipment checklist designed to reduce costly and avoidable repairs.

I am completely satisfied with this company. Their prices are fair. They gave me an honest estimate on things I needed fixed; my polaris, my in-line chlorinater, and even let me know my filter was missing parts required by law, that I was unaware of. They are very knowledgeable.
I took my polaris to Leslie's Pool Supply TWICE to fix a problem it had, and the problem remained, but one trip to their shop and it works like new!
My pool was growing stains that I couldn't scrub away, and according to the self water test you take to Leslie's, my pool chemistry was correct, and they told me to just add more chlorine to fix my problem. That solution did not work. 2 days after the initial visit from Total Pool Care and my pool looks better than new! All the stains gone, and the water crystal clear!
The owner even replied to my questions by text at 10 pm the night before I went out of town to ease my mind. He worked with me on getting a check to him at my convenience - did all the major work without even having it! Showed trust in me and gained my trust as well.
The employees were even good with my dogs! They didn't let them escape the yard when they came, and gained their trust as well!
This business has been running for almost 20 years and that reflects in their work

In my opinion, Total Pool Care is #1 in The Woodlands for outstanding service and professionalism. Mike McBride out-shined our previous pool service provider in every way - a technician arrived when they said they would, the problem was quickly diagnosed and we were quoted a fair price. Mike has even helped us troubleshoot over the phone! It's nice when you find a company in the repair industry that you can trust - Total Pool Repair sets the standard for integrity and excellence.

I had a total pool renovation done and was very happy with the final results. I recently had a problem with my DE filter manifold after only 18 months of use and although Penair would not cover it under warranty Mike replaced it at no cost to me. The tech that did the replacement, Nicholas, was very knowledgeable and courteous. I also have weekly service and that employee , Nick, always goes above and beyond ( in my opinion as I have had other services in the past) to keep my pool clean ! He even has a leaf blower with him to blow all the leaves off the pool deck before starting his service. Thanks Total Pool Care !!

I am so thankful we called this company. We just moved to the area and we initially had another pool company taking advantage of us, horrible. I have had Total Pool Care out not even for a month and my pool looks AMAZING!! Frank or Ron come every week and they take great pride in my pool as if it was their own. You will not be disappointed this company actually does what they say they will do. Thank you so much!!
From resurfacing to a complete renovation, our team devises innovative and beautiful designs using only the highest quality methods and materials.
