School Holidays Are Here, And The Weather Is Warming Up. It's Time To Have Your Pool Water Tested

17 September 2020

September was the first day of spring and true to form here on the beautiful GC, the weather was noticeably warmer.  This means your pool water will be warming up, and you might be tempted to take that first dip of the season.   Also, now that the school holidays have arrived, there's every chance the kids will be jumping in.

When the water warms up, and when swimmers jump in, the sanitiser (chlorine) in the water will be used to stop bacteria and algae growing.  In a relatively short period of time, the existing chlorine will be used up.

Our tip - Have your pool water tested and get professional advice on what actions to take to ensure healthy water now, and leading into the warmer months.  Actions such as whether to increase the running time on the pump, or to increase the chlorine production on the chlorinator is often warranted at this time of year.  You may need to adjust the pH so that the chlorine is at maximum effectiveness, and the other elements of water balance need to be checked for optimal water health, and to avoid algae bloom.
If you delay, you run the risk of the pool going green and according to Murphy's law, it'll happen at exactly the time when you, or the kids, just want to jump in the pool to cool off and have some holiday fun.

BRING A SAMPLE OF YOUR WATER INTO EITHER OF OUR STORES TO HAVE IT CHECKED.

WE ARE OPEN MON TO SAT AT BUNDALL AND RUNAWAY BAY (Sundays from 1 October).
