When to Renovate Your In-Ground Pool

What’s your favorite thing about summer? We would venture to guess that enjoying your outdoor space – grilling, relaxing and swimming – is among your top picks. But not if your in-ground pool is outdated and in need of renovating.

If you’re spending a lot of time trying to keep up with extra maintenance, it makes the whole experience of your pool less enjoyable. Or if your in-ground pool is in such disarray that you can’t even use it, then it’s time for a change.

We’d be grateful for the opportunity to renovate your in-ground pool for you. And the best time to do that is now – spring is the ideal time for your in-ground pool renovation.

Get Ahead of the Crowd

Our schedule for building and renovating pools really starts to get full come early summer because everyone is thinking about that nice dip in the pool as the hot days come upon us. So, the moment winter winds cease is the ideal time to get scheduled for your renovation. Scheduling your renovation for the beginning of the spring season means that we can get to it sooner and will get it done faster.

Enjoy Your Renovated Pool Longer

Calling us as soon as possible to get your renovation scheduled also means that you’ll be able to enjoy your newly renovated pool for much longer than the guy who waited to contact us. Won’t it be nice to have several months of swimming bliss – and limited maintenance because your pool is now in tip-top shape – rather than just the end of the season? We certainly want to see you optimize your pool time this year!

So, if your pool needs some work – or your backyard in general needs an upgrade such as a custom hardscape design or fencing – we’d be happy to help you make that a reality. And the sooner you call us, the better!


Spring – the Season for Grills and Outdoor Furniture

brothers pool hardscaping

Once those April showers stop putting a dampener on your outdoor activities (pun intended), spring is one of the best times of year for enjoying your backyard. So, while the rain keeps coming, you can pick out a new grill and new outdoor furniture to enjoy in the coming weeks and take your outdoor living experience to a whole new level of enjoyment.

Big Green Egg Grill

We believe Big Green Egg to be the best grill on the market today. This ceramic Kamado-style charcoal grill provides the ultimate grilling experience with its wide range of accessories allowing you to do everything from grilling and smoking to baking and wood fire pizza.

Easily adjusted cooking temperatures and a variety of sizes available can optimize the versatility of your Big Green Egg. We’re certain that you’ll spend several spring evenings (or even mornings or weekend afternoons) grilling up recipes new and traditional to satisfy your cravings.

Outdoor Furniture

At Brothers Pool we offer a wide variety of outdoor furniture – and we’re not talking the metal or wicker your grandma used to have on her porch either. The outdoor furniture we offer makes your backyard an extension of your indoor living space, with comfort and style all rolled together.

We have tables, chairs, couches, outdoor fireplaces and firepits, lighting and heating products. Even on those cooler spring evenings, you’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor space. We can create a custom outdoor living space perfect for a gathering of family or friends, or just a quiet evening at home.

Let us help you make your outdoor living space a perfect extension of your home so you can start enjoying it as soon as the rain clouds clear! Enjoying the new life, bright colors and awesome weather of spring never felt as good as it does with a perfectly grilled steak on your plate, sitting on your cozy new outdoor furniture!

Best Above Ground Pools Made in the USA

Doughboy Sapphire

At Brothers Pool, we know the value of supporting our nation’s economy. That’s why we’re proud to offer Doughboy above ground pools. Doughboy pools are made right here in the USA – right down to the screws.

Doughboy is the nation’s only full-line manufacturer of above ground swimming pools. Inventors of the first portable pool over 65 years ago, the pools produced by Doughboy are legendary within the industry and top-notch in quality.

The frames, available in steel and resin, are designed to last for years to come. Both types are strong and durable, so it’s simply a matter of your personal preference for the design and look you’re going for in your backyard. The steel frames are made from better-than-industry-standard gaged steel, approximately 50% heavier than other brands, which increases stability. The resin frames are built with steel reinforced resin verticals to prevent top-rail rocking and ensure maximum strength.

Since its inception, Doughboy has continually expanded its line of pool products offered to include not only the pool itself, but accessories and maintenance supplies, so that you can buy everything you need for your backyard oasis from the same manufacturer. Their goal is to give every pool owner the peace of mind that comes with owning an American-made above ground pool.

The longevity, efficiency, and safety provided with a Doughboy pool are unparalleled within the industry. They are so confident in the product that they even offer a lifetime guarantee on the pool liner. The company continues to invest in ground-breaking technology and quality materials, doing their best to make sure not one customer is left disappointed.

Brothers Pool is proud to be a dealer for Doughboy above ground pools. Contact us today to determine the style that is best for your needs and desires.


Brothers Pool Annual Open House – May 6th

Yes, our showroom is pretty impressive (at least we certainly think so), but until you come to our open house, you’ve not seen anything yet! On May 6th from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M., we’ll be featuring everything that Brothers Pool has to offer to make your backyard the kind of refuge everyone else in your neighborhood dreams of.


Meet Our Vendors

All of our vendors will be here that day with booths outside the store – Marquis, Dream Maker, Viking Pools, Blue Hawaiian, Doughboy, Embassy and more. They’ll be offering special incentives and promotions available on that day only. (See Vendor promotions and discounts below.)

Customer Appreciation

We’ll be conducting a customer appreciation raffle, with tons of prizes provided by other small businesses in our community (help us support our local small business enterprise) and the vendors. Bagels and coffee will be available in the morning, and that afternoon will have catered pizza and gelato on our pizza truck!

Kamado Joe Demonstrations

If you’re interested in a Kamado Joe Grill and want to see it in action, then you’ll want to be at our Open House event. We’ll have demonstrations throughout the day with an official Kamado Joe chef showing you grilling techniques and providing samples of the delicious food he grills up. Register in advance on our website or by calling because these demonstrations have limited reserved seating.

Pool School

We’ll also kick off our Pool School series at the Open House event. Pool school is our way of helping our pool owning customers learn how to properly care for and maintain their pools. We offer classes throughout the season, but our May 6th event will give you the chance to participate in three classes that day – at 10 A.M, noon and 2 P.M. Topics of discussion will include “Weekly Maintenance” and “Salt Water Care.”

The Brothers Pool Open House is our biggest sale and promotion event of the year! You certainly don’t want to miss it! Mark your calendars and be sure to register in advance for the classes and demos. Don’t forget to invite your friends and family to join you!
