At Tobia Pool Care we provide an array of pool equipment repairs and installations to protect the investment and life of your pool.
Pool Pump & Motor Repair & Installation
Pool pump motors are located on the ‘dry end’ of the pump and convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. A motor’s main purpose is to power the pump’s impeller, which is the device that moves the pool water into and through the pump. A properly sized and well-maintained motor can last for 8-10 years. Conversely, poor conditions can cause a motor to fail after one year.

Pool Filter (DE, Sand, & Cartridge Filters) Repair & Installation
One of the most important steps in keeping your pool clean is cleaning pool filters. Your filter works hard to keep your pool clean and sanitary. But, if you fail to periodically clean your filter, dirt and debris can build up within. When that happens, the filter’s ability to is impaired and can become less effective. The three types of pool filters (sand, diatomaceous earth and cartridge) each require unique steps to clean them. This is due to each filter using a unique filtering process.

Pool Salt System Repair & Installation
Pool salt systems, otherwise known as chlorine generators are attractive to pool owners simply because they eliminate the need to store, buy, transport and handle chlorine. They are not an alternative to chlorine, but actually make their own chlorine from regular table salt. The pool water passes through a generator cell that creates the chlorine within the pool water. As pool water passes through the chlorine generator cell, pumped through by your filter pump, the salt in the water is turned into Hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid is the exact same component that is produced when any chlorine is added to pool water, whether you use sticks, tablets, granular or liquid. As the water returns to the pool, it will introduce the newly produced chlorine, preventing algae, bacteria and killing micro-organisms, creating a safe and sanitary swimming environment.
If you already have a pool, you can convert your standard pool to a salt pool. Two components will be added to your existing system, a salt cell and a control unit. The salt cell is attached to the pipes between your filter and water outlet and the control unit allows you to monitor the salt cell. The price for a salt system will vary based on features and brands.

Pool / Spa Heater Repair & Installation
Swimming pool heat pumps work just like central air conditioning heat pumps, only in reverse. Instead of removing heat from the inside of your home and expelling it to the outside air, a pool heat pump takes heat out of the outside air and transfers it into your pool water. Swimming pool heat pumps can extract useful heat energy in air temperatures as low as 45–50°F, so they are very effective in Florida’s mild climate.

Automatic Pool Cleaner Repair & Installation
One convenient way for pool owners to keep their pool clean and ready to use is with an automatic pool cleaner (APCs). They help reduce—not eliminate—the need for brushing, skimming, and vacuuming the pool so customers can spend more time enjoying their pool and less time cleaning it.
Three main types of automatic pool cleaners are: Suction-Side Cleaners which attach to the suction side of the pool’s plumbing as water is being drawn out of the pool to be filtered. Pressure-Side Cleaners which work with the pressure side of the pool’s plumbing as clean, filtered water is pushed back into the pool. Robotic Cleaners which are the most convenient! This type of cleaner moves along the bottom of the pool and climbs the walls, collecting dirt and debris into a fine mesh bag or cartridge. Robotic cleaners are the most expensive APC, but they help extend the life of the pool’s filtration system and help save on chemical usage. .

“Tobia Pools is the BEST pool service” — DENNY CTobia Pools is the BEST pool service. Lou cleaned our pool in Boca and when we moved to Boynton we continued to have Lou clean our pool. We had a leak and Lou detected it and fixed it right away. We also wanted to purchase a Barracuda cleaner. Lou offered us to purchase one through him, which was substantially less than anywhere we had found. He had it installed and running right away. He not only skims and vacuums but he also scrubs the tiles and cleans the filter. Great guy!
