Green to clean pool in 24 hours - Pool cleaning Gold Coast - Part 1

09 October 2019

 by Angus Donald

When it comes to being the Gold Coast best pool cleaners, Active Pool Supplies revel in the opportunity to deal with pool cleaning dramas.

Case in point is the recent project for a pool at Paradise Point. While not a client of Active Pool Supplies "VIP Pool Cleaning Service", we jumped into action after the pool owners contacted reporting their pool had turned green overnight.

In this 3 part case study series, we are going to report how we saved the day and returned their pool to clean and clear condition in just 24 hours.

The reported concern by the Paradise Point pool owners was that a palm fronds in the pool had somehow created a massive algae attack overcoming the pool's chlorination system. Once one of our technicians was on site to review how a palm frond had turned the pool Green he quickly found the source of the problem. It would be very unusual for a single palm frond to create such an algae response and turn a pool Green so it was no surprise for him to find that the pool chlorinator had failed. In modern pool systems the chlorinator is constantly creating chlorine while the pool pump and cleaning system is in operation. If for whatever reason the pool chlorinator fails then chlorine  is not being produced - which is essential to keep algae and other bacteria at bay.

As the Gold Coast Premier pool service & supply business,  we had a variety and stock of replacement pool chlorinators and was able to provide the client a number of choices. With the client informed they were able to make a quick decision and we were quickly back on site to install a replacement chlorinator.

With the technical fault rectified, it was now time to make amends to the green pool. As part of this service call we prepared the pool cleaning system for a busy 24 hours of cleaning with a filter clean and backwash.

It was then time for the first round of chemical treatment, but more about that in the next installment of our green to clean case study.

Look on our website for further installments about our case study as we took this green pool to clean. For expert advice and/or at home care of your pool, be sure to call on the Gold Coast's best pool cleaning business, Active Pool Supplies, Bundall and Runaway Bay. You will be surprised at how inexpensive it is to have experts look after your pool.
