While Ultimate Pools takes considerable pride in its cutting-edge pool designs and technology, we also realize that the most important part of making a pool a backyard oasis is what’s inside the pool. We pride ourselves on having crystal-clear water with minimal chemicals, leaving your pool looking clean and feeling clean against your skin. That’s why we use ozonated water.
Ozonating our water, which we do via Del Ozone products, allows us to fill your pool with refreshing, oxygenated water that has far less chlorine than standard swimming pools. It’s also easier to maintain, especially with the Intellichem System that we offer with each pool installation. The Intellichem system (which we will detail more in later entries) is a computerized, smart system that treats your pool water with minimal chemicals while breaking down the bacteria, viruses and fungi that can accumulate, keeping you healthy and feeling good on those hot summer days.
We also use ozonated water for our bottled water, which we donate to charities and community organizations for them to sell for fundraising purposes. While the process for our ozonated drinking water isn’t exactly the same as it is for the ozonated pool water (for obvious reasons), the Pura Flo system we use to bottle our water makes it a clean, tasty beverage on a hot Texas afternoon. So if you’re around the area and you see bottled water with the Ultimate Pools label at a community event, pick one up and taste the ozonated water difference!
While we are proud of all the organizations we sponsor and provide water for, the Shenandoah Sharks are an organization that Ultimate Pools has had the longest relationship with. Not only have we been affiliated with the Shenandoah Sharks since 2004, two of our children have swam in the program. Our daughter Bryanna swam and coached with the Sharks, while our son Nicholas swam for the team.
The Shenandoah Sharks have been an award-winning summer league swim team for children ages 4-18 in The Woodlands, Shenandoah, and Spring — along with areas along FM 1488 and FM 242 — since 1973. The Sharks have been the home of thousands of young South Montgomery County swimmers since their founding, giving them a safe, fun recreational and competitive environment in which to swim and grow.
The Shenandoah Sharks compete in the Northwest Aquatic League, giving their young swimmers a chance at fun competition. The season started last weekend with a meet against The Woodlands Marlins, and the Sharks will jump in the pool again Saturday against the Oak Ridge Otters. They’ll have several more meets before concluding the season with a divisional meet later this summer. The Sharks also use their swim meets as an opportunity for their swimmers to qualify for “invitational” meets against some of the fastest swimmers in the region.
But the swimming excellence of the Shenandoah Sharks isn’t the only reason why we sponsor their organization. The Sharks also are a visible contributor to the community, raising money for charitable organizations at their annual Swim For Sharks event. In 2013, the Sharks raised $1,500 for The David Center at the Texas Children’s Hospital (an event Ultimate Pools humbly supports) and raised $2,300 for the Hemispherectomy Foundation last season. This season the Sharks will be swimming for Kindness Matters in honor of Peyton A. James.
Ultimate Pools is proud of its decade-plus-long relationship with the Shenandoah Sharks and hope it continues for many years to come. For more information on the Sharks, click on the link to their homepage in the opening paragraph and visit them on Facebook!
Along with building pools, Ultimate Pools prides itself on being part of the community. We’ll do this once again this Saturday at College Park High School’s SPIKEFEST. The SPIKEFEST is an outdoor volleyball tournament held by the College Park girls’ volleyball team. Ultimate Pools will be providing water for sale at this co-ed tournament, with all proceeds from the water sales going to the College Park Cavaliers girls’ volleyball program.
This event will go on all day Saturday at College Park High School in The Woodlands. Click here for more information and stop by College Park High School to witness this fun event!
One of Ultimate Pools’ favorite community events will be taking place Saturday morning in The Woodlands, as David’s Dream Run will be held Saturday morning at Woodforest Stadium. We humbly help sponsor this great event, which features a 1 mile fun run and a 5K run/walk. This event was named after David Vetter, the namesake of David Elementary School in Shenandoah, who lived bravely for 12 years with severe combined immunodeficiency, a disorder that left him highly susceptible to germs.
Vetter spent much of his life at Texas Children’s Hospital, and 100 percent of the proceeds for David’s Dream Run will go to the David Center at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. So whether you are looking to break a sweat for a good cause or just want to support the runners, head out to Woodforest Stadium for David’s Dream Run! Check-in for the event is at 7:30 a.m. The fun run starts at 8 a.m., with the 5K starting after the fun run concludes.
For 15 years Ultimate Pools has made it its mission to provide its customers with top-of-the-line swimming pools and customer service. We truly believe that “Attention to Detail Makes a Difference”, and we have re-designed our website to fit that motto.
As you can see, things look quite a bit different from what they were before. We are dedicated to using this blog site to provide our current and future customers with the latest in information while also providing them updates on new offers and services that we provide. We will also use this site to provide tips and do-it-yourself instruction to help maintain your pool, the latest photos and videos from pools that we are developing, and upcoming events in the community that we are working with. Our goal is to make this website a one-stop place for customers to obtain information, browse our features, and interact with us. There are also icons with links to our Facebook and Google+ pages — along with a link to e-mail us directly — at the top right of the page.
Before we get this blog rolling with the latest news and developments at Ultimate Pools, here’s a quick little cheat sheet of the features that the new ultimatepools.us offers.
