How often should I get my pool cleaned?
Each pool is different so it can vary depending on how much usage it gets; the efficiency of the filtration and chlorination system, its location and even the weather. During the summer months we recommend our Full Clean service every 4 weeks and our Test & Balance service in the fortnight in between. Contact us to arrange an inspection for a more exact schedule.
How do I balance my pool and spa water?
To ensure the best possible result we recommend you use our onsite Test & Balance service. We can test the pool water, diagnose chemical requirements and dose it with the correct amounts of chemicals to get it back into balance, healthy and comfortable.
Do the chemical levels matter that much?
Absolutely! It’s not just about chlorine. Your pool water needs a balance of chlorine, pH, alkalinity, salinity, hardness and stabiliser to make sure it is safe, comfortable and healthy to swim in. Properly balanced water is also essential to keep your pool’s structure, pipework and equipment in top shape. If you’re not sure contact our friendly team.
My pump is making a strange noise. Can you help?
Definitely! Noisy pumps generally signify a developing problem. We have many years’ experience in repairing all kinds of pool pumps and other equipment, so contact our team today.
Why should I run my pool through winter? Isn’t it a waste of money?
Definitely not! Shutting the pool down will not just make it go green and smelly costing hundreds to bring it back. It will also shorten the life of the equipment and pool structure. Pool chemistry is just as important to making sure your equipment, pipes and pool surface stay in peak condition as it is to keeping the water healthy and clean to swim in. Ask us about the best way to keep your pool going through winter without breaking the bank.
