Once the pools start opening up in the Spring and early Summer we get plenty of customers coming in looking for new liners for their pools. On inground pools we always sell new faceplates and gaskets, but for whatever reason aboveground liner customers don’t always get new gaskets. Since the skimmer panel is traditionally the most likely area to fail on a pool wall, it is the most critical area to protect. The best way to protect this panel is make sure there isn’t any leaking at the skimmer or return. For a small add-on you can protect your investment and keep your pool standing for years to come.—Craig
I am excited about the new Star Wars movie coming out later this year. We have a robot that runs around in our inground pool outside that I have named R2Z2. It’s real name is the Aquabot Z2 and like R2D2, it can help you out of a jam when things appear to be at it’s most hopeless. R2D2 has little saws the pop out and cuts rope and ways to tap into the Death Star main frame computer and shut down giant garbage compactors. Well, the Aquabot Z2 drives up vertical walls, operates independently from the main filtration system and maps out and memorizes your pool, to ensure that your entire pool is crystal clear. ??Step up and recognize the future and embrace our robotic over lords, and buy R2Z2 and take him home with you! Resistance is futile and a lot more work.
I can’t believe it will be 10 years on April 30th that Eastgate Pools and Spas lost one of our employees!! Matt Buehler was a great man, friend, loyal employee to many around our store and he is missed by all that he was around on a daily basis.
We pay tribute to Matt with this picture that all of the employees see daily!!
Miss you Matt!!
Since leisure suits aren’t as popular as they used to be it would seem people don’t know as much about polyester as they used to. In the casual furniture industry poly fabrics are a very popular and generally price competitive option. This is one of the common fabrics found in box stores, and while it can be durable, you should know what you’re getting. Polyester is great in the fact that it is recyclable, but it doesn’t generally have great color fastness. Treasure Garden offers a line of solution-dyed spun polyester fabrics called O’bravia. These fabrics are far softer, cooler, and heavier than most polys you will find on the market and it includes a 4 year warranty against fading. You can tell a great deal from the feel of a fabric. This is just one of the many options for umbrella fabrics. Let me just say you will definitely get what you pay for here. Stop in and let us show what separates one fabric from the next.—Craig
Our newest shipment of umbrellas have made it to the sales floor! We have brought in a few different styles this year such as the Starlight umbrella. We have many different styles and sizes, as well as many different fabric grades and prints. We also have multiple Cantilever styles in stock as well.
On a side note- if we don’t have exactly what you are wanting in stock, we can special order that “perfect” umbrella for you from Treasure Garden. Tina

We recently decided to bring one of these units in to check it out and….WOW is all I can say! It is effectively a three person spa, but it is 100% rock n’ roll. I know I always talk about spas in terms of water movement, but for the size this has to be one of the most impressive spas I’ve ever seen. The jets are all large and well placed. While it might not be the perfect spa for entertaining, it doesn’t miss the mark anywhere else. If you want supreme therapy at an affordable price this might be the perfect fit for you. –Craig
When I first started here at Eastgate Pools we had a handful of hammock options for our customers, but ultimately decided to stop carrying them when all the box stores were selling cheap alternatives that generally only lasted a season. Well, I’m happy to announce that we are back in the hammock business! Times have changed and so has the quality and variety of hammock offerings. We will have a wide variety of traditional rope hammocks in solution dyed colors, mesh sling style, and various padded options. Hammocks are the ultimate way to relax outdoors and we’re excited to have them back. Be sure to stop and see what we have to offer and try the comfort out for yourself!
I’m super excited that my son will be starting kid-pitch baseball this year!!! I played softball for nine years, and am ready for the more competitive games from here on out!!! The boys have already started batting cage, pitching and catching practices. This is the first year we’ve used an actual Catcher also! I can’t wait for opening day at Tealtown Ballpark with the parade of players and everything!!! COME ON SPRING!!!!
Not that long ago we welcomed a new spa product to our shelves in the Simple Spa program. There are three components that include the main liquid solution, Purge to clean out your spa before you start on the program, and a filter cleaner to soak and clean your spa cartridges. It would be easy for anyone to assume this is just another add-on to your spa maintenance, but the truth of the matter is that this product will almost pay for itself in savings and prolonged spa life. Simple spa, at its core is a solution of salts that breakdown what is called the “slime layer” in your spa. This layer forms in every spa regardless of the sanitizer you use. While most sanitizers to a good job of eliminating bacteria in the water, only Simple Spa is proven to break through the slime layer to kill the bacteria that is protected there. On top of that, Simple Spa will also prevent new bacteria from forming there. All of this results in reduced use and need of sanitizers. It also keeps your spa components clean and clear of build ups that can shorten the life expectancy of your spa jets, heating elements, motors, and the like. I will admit I was skeptical of this new product initially, but Simple Spa has proven to be a valuable addition to our product offerings and I can assure you that it is worth your consideration.
