Spring Joy 2020

Words of Hope and Faith

My Paramount Family,
On behalf of everyone at Paramount, our hearts go out to all the people and families impacted by this unprecedented event. We appreciate the healthcare workers, local communities and first responders around the world who are on the front lines.
We are all swimming in uncharted waters and dealing with unprecedented amounts of uncertainty. COVID-19 has disrupted the entire world and is affecting us all, in most every aspect of our life. News is hitting us fast and every day brings new twists or changes to our lives that we all never imagined possible. Or at least I never did!
In situations like this, it’s important to accept that much of what is happening is beyond our control. Seems the best thing we can do is try to stay calm and stay faithful. To remind ourselves about what we value and carefully identify the best actions each one of us can take to protect those values and help bring an end to this as quickly as possible.
Each person’s ability to have an impact on this is powerful. It’s not just what others do. Each of us have an important role to play. Try to not be overwhelmed. Be aggressive. Be vigilant. Be committed. We will win the war against this virus. We have common sense. We have wisdom. We have heart. We are resilient.
All of us at Paramount know the priority of keeping our loved ones, our team members and customers safe. The health and well-being of us all is of the utmost importance.
Through it all, I am deeply overwhelmed with gratitude for the friendships and relationships we have and your continued loyalty to Paramount. I will forever be indebted to you for the trust and faith you have put in me and in Paramount. There is no doubt in my mind we will weather this storm and we will emerge all the stronger on the other side.
“Nothing unites humans like a common enemy” – James Fahy
“Suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us.”
May God shower you and yours with love, peace, hope, faith and health.

God Bless,

Buzz

COVID-19 & POOLS AND SPAS

According to the CDC, COVID-19 cannot survive in properly treated pool and hot tub water.

In addition, the World Health Organization states that controlling water quality is necessary to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. During this crisis it is important that pools and spas be properly maintained because:

  • The maintenance of properly sanitized swimming pools and other artificial bodies of water is necessary to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases and help maintain community health.
  • Without proper pool maintenance (which includes circulation and treatment of water) various germs which are present in feces — like e. coli — can grow. It can also create a breeding ground for mosquitoes, other pests and the diseases they may carry. This presents a risk not only to bathers but to the entire community at large.
  • Additionally, it is critically important that active inground pool and spa projects be completed. Unfinished projects pose significant public safety risks as potential issues such as cave-ins and pool popping, as well as the dangers posed by an active construction site. And, the impact of long-term exposure to the elements may result in the community health issues noted above.
  • As children and families across the country are being asked to reduce outside contact or even shelter at home, and gyms and other public facilities are closing, the backyard pool, spa or hot tub provides a fun way for families to focus on their health and well-being. These pools and hot tubs should be properly maintained to ensure proper sanitation measures are taking place.

The Tech Behind A Pool That Cleans Itself

Paramount in-floor systems are considered the most advanced pool cleaners available, engineered to clean the entire pool, including floors, steps, walls, benches, even spas. When not operating, the nozzles disappear back into the pool floor, becoming virtually invisible. There are no unsightly robotic cleaners and hoses; all that’s left is a sparkling clean pool - guaranteed.
Ordinary pools circulate water near the surface where chemicals and heat are quickly lost into the atmosphere, wasting chemicals, heat energy, and can create algae-prone areas due to poor circulation. Paramount in-floor systems improve the circulation by evenly circulating the water. Every square inch.
In fact. This means cleaner, healthier and more comfortable pool water. A clean and healthy swimming pool shouldn’t require the tedious and annoying cleaning practices of old. Our in-floor systems include a 99% cleaning guarantee and limited lifetime warranty on cleaning nozzles. Yep, that’s Pool Life Simplified.

ROTATING POP-UP IN-FLOOR CLEANING NOZZLES Cleaning nozzles sweep debris off pool floors, steps, benches and even spas, working together to direct debris into the drain and skimmer.
AUTOMATIC WATER VALVE CONTROL SYSTEM Hydraulically controlled water valve directs a powerful flow of water to each set of cleaning nozzles, and is 100% pressure safe.
MDX-R3 DRAIN REMOVES POOL DEBRIS MDX-R3 Drain effectively removes large debris and dirt from the pool and into the convenient containment canister for removal.
LARGE CAPACITY DEBRIS CANISTERS EDC & DDC2 debris containment canisters collect large debris before it reaches the pump to keep the pump running effciently.
VENTURI SKIMMER COLLECTS SURFACE DEBRIS Eco-friendly ParaskimV Skimmer features enhanced surface skimming even at low pump speeds, plus a large capacity basket.

Builder Profile

Premier Pools: Lance Irby - in his own words.

I began my career in the swimming pool and outdoor living industry in 2013. Previous to that, I had some experience in housing on the custom residential design & construction front, as well as a 3 year stint in sales/sales management. Keith Harbeck offered me a chance to join the Premier Pools Sacramento team in late 2012 as a salesman/design consultant. I am grateful to this day I took the plunge. The pool industry has continued to captivate me from the very start.
As a pool builder I love the challenge of providing an exciting swimming pool concept and dynamic outdoor living solutions to each of the clients I meet and serve. I am looking forward to what is yet to come and the privilege of building many more customers dreams. My wife Jennifer, son Oliver and daughter Charlie are everything. I realize each day how incredibly blessed I am to have to have the love of a family that supports me in what I do professionally. They put up with the demands and sacrifices that come with my work load and love me without reservation. Special recognition to my wife Jennifer who puts all of her energy into our families success every single day. She’s tireless and a champion for putting up with me and the kids.... we are a handful!
