What are the benefits of an in-floor pool cleaner?

There is a reason Presidential Pools & Spas recommends an in-floor cleaning system to every customer building a new pool: It is simply the best. The Q360+ In-Floor Pool Cleaner by Blue Square circulates water and removes debris, all while allowing you to do next to nothing.  Here is an overview of the equipment include in our Q360 in-floor pool cleaner that leads to beautiful, clear pool water.



The patented water valve is the central aspect of the entire cleaning system. It provides smooth water flow and adjusts for the desired speed.  The valve’s 6-port design distributes water systematically to the entire pool. And with a transparent lid, these features can always be observed and maintained.

The jets use a 360-degree mechanism to push water to every part of the pool and remove debris. Plus, the speed can be adjusted to whatever the pool needs. The High Flow, Low Flow, and Dual Flow allow for three customized cleaning options. Finally, you can choose from white, gray, black, beige, and blue jets to create a perfect match for your pool.



There has to be a place where all the debris goes! That is the eclipse drain. The drain has a sleek circular design to maximize flow and effective debris removal. It can fit to any pool or spa style and sits at the bottom of the water. The Single Source Suction is the tool that removes all large debris and leaves.

The Abyss Canister provides the largest storing capacity on the market. It captures debris and transfers it to the bottom of the basket. The heavier the debris, the farther down it goes. It is designed to minimize lost energy and maximize efficiency. The lid gives you a transparent view of when it needs to be cleaned. And with how large the canister, cleaning will be rare. When you do clean it, just slide out the basket containing all the debris. No mess or hassle.

Adding Value to Your Home with a New Swimming Pool

Adding a swimming pool to your home can be a valuable investment in many ways. Not only does it provide a fun and refreshing way to beat the summer heat, but it can also increase the value of your property, promote family bonding, and improve your health and well-being. Here are some of the ways a swimming pool can add value to your home.

Firstly, having a swimming pool can increase the value of your property. According to a study conducted by the National Association of Realtors, a swimming pool can increase the value of a property by up to 7%. This is because a swimming pool is considered a luxury item, and many homebuyers are willing to pay extra for the added convenience and recreational opportunities it provides. Additionally, a swimming pool can make your home stand out from others in the market, which can increase the likelihood of a sale.

Secondly, a swimming pool can promote family bonding and provide a fun and healthy way to spend time together. In today’s fast-paced world, it can be difficult to find quality time to spend with family and friends. However, having a swimming pool in your backyard can provide a convenient and enjoyable way to spend time together without having to leave your property. Whether it’s swimming laps, playing games, or just lounging on pool floats, a swimming pool can create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

Thirdly, swimming is a low-impact exercise that provides numerous health benefits. Regular swimming can improve cardiovascular health, build muscle strength, and increase endurance. Additionally, swimming is a great way to reduce stress and improve mental health. Having a swimming pool in your backyard can make it easier to incorporate regular exercise into your routine, as you can swim at your convenience without having to worry about the cost or hassle of going to a public pool or gym.

Fourthly, a swimming pool can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property. A well-designed swimming pool can complement the architecture of your home and create a beautiful outdoor living space. Additionally, a swimming pool can be a great way to showcase your landscaping and create a relaxing oasis that you can enjoy year-round.

Finally, having a swimming pool can provide a source of entertainment and socialization for you and your guests. Whether it’s hosting a summer pool party, inviting friends over for a casual swim, or just relaxing by the pool with a book, a swimming pool can be a great way to entertain guests and create lasting memories.

In conclusion, adding a swimming pool to your home can provide numerous benefits, both in terms of financial value and quality of life. Whether you’re looking to increase the value of your property, promote family bonding, improve your health and well-being, enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property, or entertain guests, a swimming pool can be a valuable investment that you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Swimming Pool Financing: What You Should Know

A swimming pool is an investment in a better life for you and your family. In Arizona, you can use your pool and spa almost daily for at least half the year, which makes owning them one of the most cost-effective activities in which your family can invest. And that’s before considering the health benefits.

Even though our pools are priced competitively, we understand that a majority of our clients will still need to use financing to build their dream backyard.

To help you unPresidential Pools Finance Manager - Natalie Doylederstand how swimming pool financing works, we’ve interviewed our incredible Finance Manager, Natalie Doyle, who has more than 20 years of experience in the mortgage and loan industry.

How can I find the best financing option for my family?

What should I look for in a loan provider?

The lending institutions that we have partnered with specialize in swimming pool financing and are good at what they do.  The number one thing to keep in mind is what monthly payment is in your budget and then look at the lender that will offer the best rate and term to see if they can meet your needs.  I will walk you through everything from start to finish.

What is required to qualify?

Different programs have different requirements.  With our secured loans the lenders minimum credit score requirement is 650+ and the unsecured loans require a 640+.  There are other factors that determine qualification which can include debt to income ratio, residual monthly income, and credit history.

What types of loans are available?

We offer secured and unsecured loans. Secured loans are considered 2nd mortgages and use the home as collateral.  The rates vary depending on credit scores and equity in the home, but don’t worry if you do not have a lot of equity in your home. The lenders we have partnered with are able to go over the 80% loan to value that lenders in Arizona cannot exceed.

We also offer unsecured loans, which are more of a personal loan, so the lender does not use the home as collateral.

What terms and rates are available?

We also offer unsecured programs (minimum to apply for the unsecured programs is 640 minimum), credit history and other factors with terms of 10-20 years. Rates vary daily, so please contact Natalie for totday’s rates.

How long does it take to get a loan?

Usually about 3 weeks. This can be a bit quicker or slower depending on industry demand (the process can often be quicker, but is normally slower during swim season!) The loan process for both secured and unsecured loans fairly simple.  We submit the loan application and within 3-5 days receive a decision. If the loan is preapproved we move forward.
