Five Famous Holiday Fireplaces

Five Famous Holiday Fireplaces

It’s December which means the holiday season is officially in full swing here at Aqua Quip. We think that nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like a roaring Regency Fireplace and Hollywood has historically agreed! Check out some famous holiday Fireplaces from your favorite festive films and be amazed at the coziness a fireplace, insert, and stove provides.

 

WHEN YOU’VE GOT THE WHOLE PLACE TO YOURSELF

Macaulay Culkin’s character Kevin Mccallister might have been a bit surprised, at first, to find himself home alone on Christmas Eve, but he very quickly took advantage of the solitude and his lovely hearth, pictured above, played no small part in the festivities. There’s something to be said about a little holiday alone time, especially when it’s paired with a roaring Regency Fireplace, but hopefully your Christmas doesn’t end up being crashed by two brazen burglars like Kevin’s was.

 

PROOF THAT FIREPLACES ARE MAGICAL

Okay, maybe Harry Potter isn’t necessarily a series of “Holiday” films and books, but they totally had some Christmas scenes and the Great Hall’s fireplace is nothing to cast Aqua Eructo at! Thankfully in the real world you don’t have to worry about trolls, hippogriffs, and He Who Must Not Be Named and even better a Regency Fireplace from Aqua Quip is WAY more magical!

 

WARNING, FIREPLACES MAY CAUSE HEART GROWTH OF 300%

Here at Aqua Quip, we don’t condone hiding in your Regency Fireplace, unless of course your intent is to ruin Christmas for Whoville, or get severe burns. If you consider yourself a pretty grumpy person, especially around the holidays, you might consider warming up your personality with a new fireplace from Aqua Quip! It worked for the Grinch who can now often be found lounging in front of a roaring fire, happy that the Holidays are upon us.

 

AVOID BEING FROZEN THIS WINTER

Parents who’ve seen Frozen 100s of times have likely grown tired of the verbose snowman Olaf. Thankfully, Regency Fireplaces are perfectly designed to combat uncanny creatures made of snow and ice! Pictured above is Olaf’s last moments before succumbing to the warm glow of what must be a Regency Heater-Rated fireplace.

 

FACE YOUR FAMILY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

While we may not be able to replicate the in-your-face look that Tim Allen’s above hearth has, a Regency Fireplace from Aqua Quip has plenty of options to make a statement to your friends and family this holiday season. With dozens of color, face, and fill options to choose from, make Aqua Quip your only stop this Winter for your heating needs.

Sunshield Stabilizersaltscapes saltwater pool stabilizing cleaner

Did you know the salt cells in your saltwater swimming pool generate unstable chlorine that weakens under UV rays? SaltScapes™ Stabilizing system protects your chlorine, helping it last longer. Just make sure your pool is at a minimum 30ppm when you pour it in, and test your stabilizer monthly.

pH Reducersaltscapes ph reducer for saltwater swimming pools

SaltScapes™ ph Reducer works to protect your saltwater pool’s surface by lowering the pH to it’s ideal range.

Cell Cleanersaltscapes cell swimming pool saltwater wall cleaner

Due to the salty levels of your pool, calcium-scale deposits start forming on your pool walls. SaltScapes™ Cell Cleaner will make your pool cleaner and prettier in just 30 minutes.

Scale Defender

Use the Scale Defender with the cell cleaner to get great results! The SaltScapes™ Scale Defender binds to the calcium crystals and keeps them from clustering together on your pool’s surface. Use it monthly to get the best results.

Shock Oxidizersaltscapes saltwater swimming pool cleaner

The SaltScapes™ Shock Oxidizer eliminates contaminants like sweat and sunscreen in your pool without creating that stinky chlorine smell. Just one bottle can treat up to 20,000 gallons of saltwater! That’s a lot. For best results, use once a week and pour it into the deep-end while the pump is running in the morning. You’ll be loving your clean, dirt and odor-free swimming pool.

Algae Treatmentsaltscapes-algae-remover

Despite continuously being chlorinated, saltwater pools can still be exposed to blooming algae. The SaltScapes™ Algae Remover is formulated to clean all surfaces and filter types with results in as little as 24 hours. In order to consistently maintain your pool, use the Algae Remover weekly as a preventative product.

SaltScapes™ Test Stripssaltscapes-test-strips

Just like a traditionally chlorinated pool, the water levels in your saltwater pool needs to be tested 2-3 times per week. Since salt and chlorine are independent of each other, SaltScapes™ Test Strips help to ensure correct salt levels to guarantee the best swimmer comfort, protection, and sanitizer efficiency. Then, don’t forget to check with your local BioGuard dealer to schedule a water sample test every 4-6 weeks.

, cut off stem end of the jalapeños and remove the seeds. Be careful not to touch eyes or face, as pepper juice can sting.

Place parmesan cheese, turkey and cream cheese in a food processor. Blend the product until all ingredients are combined.

Spoon the mixture into each of the split Jalapenos.

Grill the jalapeños using Plate Setter for indirect heat at 375°F/190°C until the peppers are tender and lightly browned, about 20 to 30 minutes for twenty average size peppers.

Add the shredded cheese 2 minutes before you finish cooking the peppers so that it will have time to melt.

Freeze Protection

Freeze Protection

4354194_sShiver me timbers! It’s a cold one out there and we’ve been getting lots of questions about how to help protect our customers’ pools and spas from the clutches of Jack Frost!

Pools and Built-in Spas:

  • Insulation is your friend. If you leave your pool filled and circulating year ‘round, another great step to help prevent freeze damage is to wrap your exposed plumbing with foam pipe wrap. Check the size of your PVC plumbing first (usually 1 ¼”, 1 ½”, or 2” are the most common).
  • When freezing occurs, run your pump 24/7 until the freezing subsides.

    Again, this is only for those of you who leave the pool filled year ‘round and don’t already run their pump 24/7. Running water won’t freeze unless another ice age sneaks up on us. Then we have bigger problems.

  • For our friends with above ground pools that drain them below the skimmer and return for the winter, ice equalizers are a small investment. These vinyl pillows inflate and help prevent the water from freezing and damaging your vinyl liner.
  • Do you have an auto cover? If so, one of our most respected service technicians would like to remind you to, “Leave the auto cover open during times of heavy snowfall.” – Troy Ross

Spas:

  • If you have a spa or hot tub that sits above ground and all the equipment is self-contained, hopefully your manufacturer insulated the spa with spray foam insulation already. If not, there are two approaches you can take. First, Aqua Quip sells a spray foam kit, which is the type of insulation our Sundance Spas and Jacuzzi Hot Tubs use to insulate. The other option is to purchase some regular household insulation, and surround the sides of the tub with it. NOTE: You do NOT want to cover the pump(s), heater, or other major equipment with

    any foam.

  • Use a floating blanket on top of the water. Either a blue bubble solar blanket or the new closed cell foam style are a huge help for heat retention as well as making the hard cover last longer. Speaking of hard covers, it is one of the most important aspects of hot tub insulation. Making sure it’s not waterlogged or broken is crucial to heat retention and freeze protection!
  • If you plan to winterize your hot tub our Maintenance Manager, Wayne Nikolaisen, suggests “Completely clearing all the plumbing lines by using a shop vac or an air compressor at a low setting. A line filled with water will expand when it freezes and cause breaks in your plumbing and equipment.”

If you have further questions about winterizing your pool or spa, don’t hesitate to call any

Get a healthier start to 2013!

Get a healthier start to 2013!

If one of your new year’s resolutions is to eat healthier, but you love your barbecue all year round – what do you do? Here are a few tips to make that winter barbecue sizzle with healthy food.

More flavor? Yes please!

Marinating your meat is a good place to start. You can add bold flavors without adding to the calories. Marinate the meat in the refrigerator overnight. Add bold flavors to your marinade with some of these suggestions:

  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Chili sauce
  • Tomato paste
  • Molasses
  • Soy sauce

A little sugar or honey goes a long way to adding more flavor to your marinade – but don’t overdo it. More is not better and you will risk burning your food.

asparagusLess fat

Stick to lean or extra lean meats or substitute with less fatty meats like turkey. Trim any visible fats and remove the skin from the chicken all together! If you are really daring you can try avoiding processed

together!

The sides

Substitute the white breads with whole wheat for hot dog or burger buns. Try the multigrain tortilla chips instead of the regular tortilla chips for a “chips’n’dip” option. A crunchy salad with fruits and nuts is a great offset to the heavier barbecue offerings.

Go veggie!

You can go all veggie and cook garden burgers and veggie dogs – or you mix up the meat on your grill with a whole lot of delicious vegetables. Try grilling eggplant, bell peppers, yams, asparagus or corn on the cob. Are your vegetables falling through the grid? You can easily make little pouches of aluminum foil and fill them with a variety of vegetables. Or come visit one of our Aqua Quip stores for all sorts of barbecue accessories that will keep your wild cuisine in check.

Try something new

Try creating your own easy salad dressing by combining extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and dried herbs. Add a little bit of honey for sweetness and/or mustard for spice.

Try grilling squash, adding watermelon to your salad or this melted onion recipe from Weber.

Our very own David German from the Aqua Quip store in Redmond provides us with more healthy options – see more of David’s Corner here.

Get off to a healthy and delicious start to the year!
