White Fly Infestation – Wreaking Havoc with pool chlorination systems in Florida. How does this affect me?

A MESSAGE TO ALL OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS - POST IRMA

We are still without phones or internet at the office - we are slowly able to access email via an ipad and our cell phones. Please know that EVERYONE will be receiving service this week by their regular technician on their regular day. During these first couple of weeks post Irma, we will be removing large debris, adding chemicals and assuming power is back on, we will be able to further clean the pool. If you are able to remove large debris yourself, great - if not, we will be there to help in due time. If you have power, by all means, turn on your pool pump so that once we add our chemicals they will circulate and start clearing up the pool. Please feel free to stop by our office or email Greg Beall our General Manager directly at Greg@jwpsinc.com or Colby Rieger our Office Manager at Colby@jwpsinc.com

We appreciate your understanding and patience during this difficult time.

Florida Pool Energy Code

** UPDATE: This code is currently NOT being enforced – Legislation has determined further investigation is warranted before this code will be enforced.**
This law applies to all new and existing residential pool and spa pumps/motors.  Essentially, the law requires that any pool FILTRATION pump/motor (not spa therapy, waterfall, water feature, etc. ) 1 HP and larger must now be TWO SPEED or VARIABLE SPEED when it is REPLACED.  Repairs to an existing pump/motor can still use the existing single speed pump/motor, but if it is being REPLACED these new requirements apply.

The underlying purpose of this new code is to decrease the energy used for sufficient filtration of pools and spas.  These energy savings significantly benefit the consumer.

The portion of the code that pertains to swimming pools can be found here:  http://www.floridapoolpro.com/industry/govtrelations/docs/Energy%20Law%20Code%20QA.pdf

Please contact our office today to assess your needs and for more information on how you can ensure compliance with this new code.
