Frequently asked questions

How to tell my pool has a leak?

The most obvious sign of a pool leak is if it’s losing water. 

While a decreasing water level is the clearest indication of a leak, falling tiles, wet spots in your yard, higher than normal water bills, and other factors could also be signs.

If you suspect your pool has a leak, get in touch with Miller Pools immediately and we can assist.

What areas do you cover?

You can find the full list of where we work on our areas covered page.

My pool is green. What should I do?

Typically, if your pool water has turned green, it will mean that you have a problem with algae. Algae can damage some of your swimming pool’s features and could even make you unwell if you swim in it, so it’s important to address the problem as soon as possible.

There are a number of things you can do to stop algae from forming in the first place, including ensuring your pool’s filtration system is working, regularly testing your water’s chemical levels, and using shock treatments at least once a week. You can find more information on algae prevention  here. 

However, if you already have an algae infestation, you’ll need professional help to solve the issue. Our team can help handle any algae problems you’re experiencing so simply get in touch.

When should you open and close a pool in Pasadena?

The process of opening and closing a pool involves making sure your pool is ready to use at the times of year when it is most suitable. For example, most people close their pool during the winter when the weather gets colder and open it again when temperatures get warmer in the spring.
The opening and closing process involves a lot more than just covering or uncovering the water, and you can find out everything you need to know about it on our pool opening and closing page.

The optimum time to open or close your pool will vary depending on the weather that year, but the team here at Miller Pools will be able to advise on what’s best for you.

Do you sell pool chemicals?

Yes, we can provide you with all the necessary pool chemicals to ensure the water is safe to swim in. This can include chlorine, shock treatments, and chemicals that will balance the water’s pH. Our team can even add them to your pool on your behalf. Check out our pool chemicals and products page to learn more.
