Your pool doesn’t get a Christmas Holiday

Christmas is coming and we’re all looking forward to a fabulous festive period. However, forgetting to manage swimming pool water-balance at this time of year can be expensive, and could take longer to rectify.

Your pool doesn’t get a Christmas Holiday. So, you must look after it. Especially if you have unexpected guests’ turning-up who may be looking forward to a swim on Christmas day. Certainly, if they have come from colder climes.

Worth remembering!

If you have a high Cyanuric acid level (a build-up of by-products from Chlorines trichloro and di-chlor) – now is the time to fix it. Get in touch to find out more about our ‘winter reduction programme’.  This will reduce your Cyanuric Acid level and has the added benefit of reducing your calcium content; and your TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) levels.

You can improve the look of your pool and keep it looking bright and welcoming by cleaning calcium deposits. A great way to reduce any unsightly scum lines.

Remember to,

Keep the Pool Sanitised. Keep it balanced. Keep it clean.

We’d like to wish you all, a very Happy Christmas

If your New Years’ Resolution is to take better care of your pool, we can help you!

November

As we get into November we are in a transition period of late summer and the start of winter clocks going forward .  You must without exception take the cautious approach when maintaining a pool .

Firstly the temperatures in November are still in the mid 20`s , warm during the day and cooler at night . This is the prime time for any lingering algae to raise its head if you do not maintain your sanitation levels correctly .  Secondly , you need to perform the final tests for Cyanuric acid and Calcium Hardness before the water gets too cold.  Why !  This will give you the exact amount of water you need to reduce the levels over the winter period and how much ” drop and top” you need to perform . Remember the only way you can get rid of Cyanuric acid is via dilution , the benefit of this is you also reduce both the calcium hardness and the TDS ( total dissolved solids ) at the same time .

  • Cyanuric Acid Levels     30-50 ppm              
  • Calcium Hardness       200 – 400 ppm
  • TDS        1500ppm over starting point
  • Chlorine levels               2 – 4 ppm
  • PH level                          7.4 – 7.6 ppm
  • Alkalinity                        80  –  120 ppm

Remember people enjoy swimming anytime

November is also a time you can start to reduce your pool pump running times , but only if it is not in use . If you or family are using the pool keep to the required filtration cycle , just because its cooler it does not mean bacteria does not exist .
