Swimming Pool Equipment - Hive Outdoor Living

A Clean Pool is Healthy and Inviting
Pool Equipment Makes All the Difference

At Hive Outdoor Living, #1 Tampa Pool Builder, we take pride in each and every pool and spa that we install for our customers.

One of the reasons we are the best at what we do is that we do not cut corners, especially when it comes to your pool equipment.

In order to have a sparkling clean pool and/or spa, it is necessary to install the absolute best pump, filter and automation equipment, with the result that your pool/spa stays clean and sanitized, day in and day out.

The pump is the heart of the system as its function is to circulate the water so it can be cleared of debris. We have been using the industry leader’s (Pentair) swimming pool and spa pumps for years. Aside from performing the job of water circulation flawlessly, their pumps earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® designation due to being between 30%-72% more energy-efficient than their competitors in the industry.

The purpose of the pool filter is to keep your pool water clear and clean. There are many types of filters on the market and the Pentair cartridge filter does an amazing job of removing airborne dirt and leaves, organic matter, bacteria and algae. The Clean & Clear RP Cartridge filter has a surface consistency to block and trap particles as small as 20 microns. On top of that, it is relatively easy and quick to remove and rinse clean.

Despite the year-round warmer temperatures in Florida, most people opt for a heater to ensure they can enjoy their pool in total comfort. Of course, if you are getting a spa, this piece of equipment is a must. Pentair MasterTemp heaters are efficient, convenient and extremely reliable. With a user-friendly LCD display, these pool heaters are easy to operate as a home heating system and the MasterTemp Heater is Eco-friendly and is certified for low NOx emissions, outperforming pool industry standards

One of the keys to years of enjoyment is your pool’s water chemistry. There are pH and sanitizer levels at which your water must be maintained to prevent the growth of algae, as well as keeping water safe for your eyes. The liquid around the eyes is generally between 7.0 and 7.3, which is pH neutral. Any significant fluctuation from those readings will cause your eyes to sting, similar to when water dripping from your hair reaches your open eye, as the pH of hair and scalp oil is generally acidic, between 4.5 and 5.5, in order to prevent fungi and bacteria from growing. The Pentair IntelliChem® Water Chemistry Controller works to keep the pH and chlorine levels of your pool in balance.

Many people enjoy swimming at night and, to ensure safety, the Pentax MicroBrite Color and White LED Lights provide exceptional brilliance, lighting uniformity and some amazing colors. To add some spice, there is the option of Pentair GloBrite lights. These high-performance LED lights utilize the most advanced technology with five brilliant fixed colors and offer seven dazzling pre-programmed light shows.

Another very useful device is the Pentair IntelliLevel™ Water Leveling Monitor, utilizing multi-sensory technology to ensure that your pool water level stays at a safe level for operational efficiency. When water levels are too high there can be overflow and a waste of water. When the level is too low there is a danger that not enough water reaches the pool pump and filtration system, which can cause equipment damage. It is simple to set up and use and has built-in safeguards to notify you in case of any failure to operate properly.

And, of course, having a device clean and vacuum your pool is an added plus. The fully-programmable Pentair Prowler 920 Robotic Pool Cleaner is top of the line and provides high-caliber cleaning, scrubbing and vacuuming, to the tile line.

One last thing to mention is the installation of your equipment. When you select Hive Outdoor Living to build your pool, rest assured that your equipment not only functions properly, but that it flows perfectly. By that we mean that all pipes leading into and out of the equipment area follow a logical pattern for optimum efficiency and are clearly marked for ease of identification.

The above cover the basics of an ideal swimming pool equipment and device set up. Of course, there are many additional options to enhance your outdoor living area, such as enclosures and screens, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, fountains, waterfalls, grottos, caves, jet sprays, etc.

From your new pool design to your entire outdoor environment, Hive Outdoor Living can, and will, make your dreams come true.

Pool Design & Environment

Tampa Custom Pools - Hive Outdoor - Jets and Waterfalls

From Hive Outdoor Living

In order to Create Your Own Paradise there needs to be a starting point. At Hive Outdoor Living, the #1 Tampa pool builder, that begins with finding out exactly what you would like to see in your backyard with a pool design and environment you will love for years to come.

Aside from swimming pools and spas, Hive Outdoor is greatly experienced in the quality installation of screen enclosures, outdoor television and audio, outdoor kitchens and barbecue areas, fire pits, fencing, and automation. Our expert crews can also install decks and paths, lawns or your complete landscaping requirements.

And, the manner in which we accomplish this is quite unique.

As you discuss your ideas for a pool design with our professional designer, you will see a remarkably detailed three-dimensional rendering of your entire outdoor living space take shape, including your home and existing landscaping and how your new swimming pool compliments and integrates its surroundings.

This Hive Outdoor Living technique ensures the most favorable and optimum usage of your existing details and backyard elements in order to create your perfect living and entertainment environment.

However, if you are not sure what you would like, but are able to tell us which outdoor activities that you and your family most enjoy, we can design your pool and surrounds with our recommendations and suggestions, with the goal of pleasing and satisfying your desires.

Either way, whether it is your concept or ours, as your plan is nearing completion, through the power of Virtual Reality, we will take you on a virtual tour of your yard in order to view and explore what lies ahead.

Another option is to Create Your Own Paradise in phases. By that we mean, when you have provided us with your ultimate dream details, we can build it one step at a time. In other words, the pool is installed first with perhaps a screen enclosure. The next phase includes enhancing your backyard living area with a kitchen, fire pit and seating area. And perhaps the last stage is the expert installation of a large screen television and audio system with stereo surround sound.

At Hive Outdoor Living, our highly-talented designers love to work with our clients to create their ideal outdoor living space.

There’s a Great Pool for You

A Pool For You - Hive Outdoor Living

At Hive Outdoor Living, we truly believe “There’s a Pool for You.”

Regardless of the size of your backyard living space or the budget that you have allocated for a custom swimming pool, it is our belief that every backyard, especially here in the Greater Tampa Bay area, should have a pool.

There are numerous reasons why. We’ll cover a few.

Swimming pools bring families together, add a tremendous amount of pleasure, and create an at-home staycation or holistay environment. A pool is an investment in years of enjoyment and fun, likely creating memories to last a lifetime.

There is, as well, the health aspect of owning your own pool.

There is ample evidence that swimming is one of the best, if not the best, exercise. The great thing is that, other than competitive swimming, it does not feel like exercise.

The benefits of swimming are incredible: it is low-impact, yet builds and maintains muscles (especially as we age); it improves lung capacity, thus processing oxygen much more efficiently and assisting in immunity to illness; it can help reduce stress, both physical and mental; to name a few.

That is why we believe that there is a pool for you.

From traditional rectangular or kidney shaped pools, to ones that are free form, using the natural contours of the property and dwelling to define its outline and configuration.
