Welcome to Complete Aquatic Solutions’ blog! After years of working in the pool industry and maintaining my own pool, I’ve come to value quality over price. At 45, I understand the importance of investing in reliable products that save time and reduce hassle. While younger pool owners might prioritize cost, I believe that choosing high-quality products pays off in the long run by preventing problems and ensuring peace of mind. Here are my top eight picks for advanced pool maintenance products, each chosen for their effectiveness and reliability.

Waterco Cyclone Prefilter
Imagine your pool’s filtration system as the respiratory system of a swimmer. Just as clear, unobstructed airways are crucial for peak performance, a pool’s filtration system needs to be free of debris to function efficiently. The Waterco Cyclone Prefilter acts as the lifeguard, ensuring large debris is captured before it clogs the main filter. This not only extends the life of your primary filter but also enhances overall water clarity.


Efficiency: Captures debris before it reaches the main filter.
Maintenance: Reduces the frequency of cleaning the primary filter.
Lifespan: Extends the life of your primary filter.

Borates in Pool Maintenance
Think of borates as the peacekeepers of your pool water. They stabilize pH levels, making the water feel smoother and more comfortable for swimmers. By adding borates, you reduce the need for frequent chemical adjustments, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your pool and less time maintaining it.


pH Stabilization: Keeps pH levels steady, reducing chemical use.
Water Clarity: Enhances the clarity and sparkle of the water.
Comfort: Makes the water feel softer and more pleasant to swim in.

Taylor K-2005 Test Kit
Maintaining perfect water chemistry is like baking a perfect cake—it requires precision and the right ingredients. The Taylor K-2005 Test Kit provides accurate readings for multiple parameters, ensuring you always know what your pool needs. This kit helps you achieve the perfect chemical balance, keeping your pool safe and inviting.


Accuracy: Provides precise readings for multiple chemical levels.
Ease of Use: User-friendly design makes testing simple.
Comprehensive: Covers all essential parameters for pool water chemistry.

Pentair IntelliFlo3 Variable Speed Pump
Choosing the right pump for your pool is like picking the right engine for your car. The Pentair IntelliFlo3 Variable Speed Pump is an industry leader, offering unparalleled efficiency and customization. Its variable speeds allow you to optimize energy use, reducing your electricity bills while maintaining excellent circulation. My personal experience with Pentair’s customer service has been outstanding, with a focus on resolving issues quickly and effectively.


Energy Efficiency: Reduces electricity consumption.
Customization: Variable speeds for different tasks.
Customer Service: Excellent support and quick resolution of issues.

Poolvernugen The Pool Cleaner
Even though it’s a Hayward product, I have to give credit where it’s due. The Poolvernugen The Pool Cleaner is like the trusted workhorse of pool cleaners. It’s efficient, reliable, and does an excellent job of keeping your pool spotless. While my experiences with Hayward’s customer service have been less than stellar, this product stands out as a rare gem in their lineup.


Efficiency: Thoroughly cleans the pool with minimal effort.
Reliability: Consistent performance over time.
Quality: Superior design and functionality.

Orenda Enzyme Treatment
Think of enzyme treatments as the silent heroes of your pool water. They break down organic contaminants, reducing the load on your filter and sanitizer. I’ve found Orenda’s enzyme treatment to be particularly effective and cost-efficient, providing excellent results without breaking the bank.


Effectiveness: Breaks down organic contaminants.
Cost-Efficiency: Better performance at a lower cost.
Water Quality: Improves overall water clarity and cleanliness.
Pentair IntelliCenter Automation System
Imagine controlling your pool’s functions from your smartphone, no matter where you are. The Pentair IntelliCenter Automation System offers unparalleled convenience and reliability. Unlike Hayward’s OmniLogic, which was a nightmare to manage, Pentair’s systems have always been dependable and user-friendly.


Convenience: Control all pool functions remotely.
Reliability: Consistent and dependable performance.
User-Friendly: Easy to use with the ScreenLogic app.

Practical Cleaning Tips
Maintaining a clean pool can sometimes feel like chasing shadows, but a few tricks can make it easier. For instance, a small squirt of water and dish soap down the middle of the pool helps gather grease and floaties together, making them easier to net. This simple tip can save you time and effort, keeping your pool looking pristine.


Efficiency: Simplifies the cleaning process.
Effectiveness: Helps gather debris for easier removal.
Time-Saving: Reduces the time spent on maintenance.
