Automatic pools controls allow you to program your pool equipment to turn on and off a various time of the day. You can set your pool pump to run for a set number of hours per day and have your lights come on at night. With the touch of on button you can go from pool mode to spa mode, have the valves rotate, turn off your cleaner and set the heater to a higher temperature. With the right system, you can even control your pool from your computer or smart phone.

Our filters give you water that really sparkles. Did you know that diatomaceous earth (D.E.) filters remove particles as small as 5 microns? That’s amazing considering an average grain of sand is 1,000 microns. 

Here is a bit more information about what makes a diatomaceous filter work so well.  Under a microscope, D.E. looks like a collection of tiny sponges that help capture imputities like dirt, algae and some forms of bacteria.  Water passes through the media with ease, while dirt and algae are trapped in the filter resulting in brilliantly clear water.    

In addition to providing the clearest possible water, our D.E. filters are durable and easy to maintain.   Buddy's stocks D.E. filters  in several sizes and configurations.  Give us a call and our professional staff can help identify the proper model for your inground pool.   
Just relax or entertain your guests with quality floats and innovative toys designed specifically to withstand the swimming pool environment.

Be sure to stop in often to find out about the hot new products for your next pool party or family gathering.
Warm soothing water can make your swimming pool more comfortable. Let’s face it, Maryland summers are short enough. With the right pool heater, you can extend the swim season to make the most out of the investment in your swimming pool. Our expert staff can furnish and install the right energy-efficient heating system for your pool and lifestyle. Call today for a free estimate.

When it’s time to upgrade your pool light, consider replacing your standard white light to a long lasting, energy-efficient colored LED lighting system. LED lights consume considerably less energy (almost 90% less) than standard incandescent lights. In many cases you can upgrade to an LED lighting system with little or no modification to your existing pool. If your light is in good working order, we can provide a replacement LED bulb that screws right into your existing underwater light providing color and energy savings without the expense of replacing the entire fixture.

Our retail store stocks a wide assortment of maintenance and safety equipment to keep your pool inviting all season long. This includes the basics like vacuum heads, hoses and poles to replacement parts such as pump baskets and heavy-duty skimmer baskets. From at-home test kits to rope & float kits, we have it in stock and ready for use every day.

Did you know that replacing your old pool pump can actually save you money? Buddy’s can install and configure an energy-efficient, variable speed pool pump that can save as much as 90% on your electricity consumption. Over time that savings can really add up. Depending on the size of your pool and how often your pump runs now, a new pump could pay for itself in 1 to 2 swim seasons. Stop by our store for a personalized demonstration on exactly how much you can save.


Electrolytic chlorine generation is the easiest, most effective and convenient way to keep pool water sparkling clean. It works by converting the pure salt, added directly to the pool water, into pure chlorine which is then distributed through the pool, sanitizing the water keeping it fresh, clear and safe for swimmers. Let the professionals at Buddy’s recommend and install the right system for your pool. Once installed, our water care experts can assist you with a simple maintenance program specifically designed for salt water pools.

Keep your pool looking great all winter while protecting your children, pets and swimming pool with a quality safety mesh pool cover. Buddy’s can measure and install a custom fit cover for your pool that will provide year after year of peace of mind knowing that your cover will meet or exceed all A.S.T.M safety standards.
