Pool Disaster Sorted by the Active Pool Supplies Professionals

22 November 2019

 by Angus Donald

As much as we help people understand how to keep a pool clean and healthy, we periodically come across jobs where we have to roll up the sleeves and save the day.

In this case we were called out to a recently purchased property where the new owners were thrilled with their dream house, but the pool was more of a nightmare!  Sadly, the previous owners had let the pool go, and we do mean let go.

What was a beautiful modern, fully tiled pool had been left stagnant for many months. With temperatures rising, the water was now completely green. There was also a layer of dirt and dead leaf matter at the bottom from recent winds, dust and ash in the air.  Algae had bloomed in the water and was growing on the walls and floor.

Whilst we've seen worse, the best option was to empty & start again.

As you can see through the progress photos, the pool was emptied, cleaned, re-filled, and re-balanced in good time for the new owners to start enjoying their beautiful new home AND their swimming pool.

If you have a pool disaster looming, it's time to get the team from Active Pool Supplies on the phone at 5537 3341, or come in store to Bundall or Runaway Bay with your water sample and / or photos.
