Valley Pool Cleaning Problems Solved
Preventative maintenance is the key to freedom for Valley pool owners. Because our pools get so much use, face extreme summer weather conditions and remain "open" year-round, focusing on the most efficient type of pool cleaning makes sense.

Skimming the surface of the pool is a part of any pool owner's routine. A pool just looks more inviting without leaves, bugs, pollen and even suntan oils floating on the surface. But more importantly, organic debris that sinks will decompose quickly, promoting algae growth. Dirt and dust can introduce bacteria into the pool, while lotions and soaps can change the chemistry of the pool water.

Floating debris usually remains on the surface of the water for 3 to 4 hours.  So, even if a conscientious pool owner is grabbing a net and skimming twice a day, a good deal of debris can sink to the bottom of the pool in between skimming sessions. This necessitates longer running time for the pool pump and use of a vacuum or other underwater cleaning equipment to remove decomposing matter from the bottom of the pool.

Skimming helps prevent algae problems
Debris left in your pool can create a welcoming environment for algae, which feeds on organic matter such as leaves, seeds, and spores that fall into the pool. Fueled by the sun, algae can take hold of your pool.  Removing algae and preventing re-growth can be a difficult and ongoing problem.  Pool owners can spend a lot of time, energy and money trying to deal with the fallout from a normal backyard environment.  

New technology for pool surface cleaning
The smartest way to deal with keeping the pool clean and algae-free is to
remove surface debris before it has a chance to affect the water quality.  
The Solar-Breeze NX2 is a solar-powered robotic pool skimmer that prevents 90-95% of debris from sinking and causing problems.  Designed by Arizona pool owners, the Solar-Breeze NX2 continuously skims the surface of the pool, powered by the sun. Its internal rechargeable battery allows it to continue operating at night and on cloudy days. Debris is collected in a compartment that holds approximately twice the volume of the pool's skimmer basket.  The tray is easily pulled out and emptied every few days.  Its fine mesh filter traps pollen, pet hair, and even lotions and oils that are left on the pool's surface.  The unit also holds two 3-inch Trichlor tablets for sanitizing the pool and neutralizing organic matter in the debris chamber.  

Energy-saving benefits of the Solar-Breeze NX2
An added benefit of theSolar-Breeze NX2 is the savings in energy costs. Because it's powered completely by the sun, running the robotic skimmer won't add to your energy bill. In sunbelt homes, the pool pump is the second largest consumer of electricity after air conditioning the home. Using a solar-powered pool skimmer can cut pool pump running time by up to two-thirds, resulting in significant savings for pool owners.
