Home What we do Spa chemicals Fi-clor Rollers & Covers Heaters Location

Winter is here and most outdoor pool owners have closed their pools ready. Close your pool using some shock chlorine to kill any living matter before adding the NoMoreAlgae. We have good supplies of  HTH (Superfast Shock), liquid chlorine and our NoMoreAlgae. The shop is now closed on Sunday mornings.

 Water Balance should be checked and adjusted as necessary. Another wet winter can cause the Calcium Hardness and Total Alkalinity levels to become depleted unless a substantial amount of fresh tap water is added when opening your pool. A water sample may be required if you want us to check the balance for you. We can offer full Balance check, plus “Total Dissolved Solids” and a report using the Spin Photometer for just £10. The latest updates for the Spin have been installed with improved accuracy and includes test for phosphates. (Food for Algae) A quick check (non Spin test )is still free which is strongly recommended if you are just opening or closing your pool and not sure where to begin. Again a water sample will be required.

We know several independent pool engineers in the local area who can professionally  open and close your pool as well as carrying out maintenance  tasks, sand and liner changes etc,  for you as required at realistic prices but all currently have fairly heavy workloads.

Patio Cleaner

Our Liquid chlorine shock is a great product to use on patios and paths. Start with a 50/50 solution in a plastic watering can. Can normally dilute further if stains not too stubborn. Use stiff brush and leave a quarter of an hour or so and rinse area. Be careful if rinsing with a pressure washer as grouting maybe dislodged.

Very Important! Wear old clothes, no matter how careful you are tiny splashes will ruin your cloths. Eye protection (goggles) also recommended. Good idea to use up old product for this purpose leaving the fresh supply for the pool.

Now £35.00 for 20 Litres (energy intensive product)

Please first check availability

Waterlink Spin Touch (NEW)

We have now upgraded to the latest version Spin Touch water balance photomoter. Now testing using 8 wavelengths rather than 6 from the old machine for even greater accuracy.

Cyanuric Acid, Copper and Iron - chlorine stabiliser, metals and phosphates.

Phosphates - Food for algae, often added by Water Board to combat                    metal from aging pipe work

We think it fair to charge a nominal £10 per test set (all 9 tests)

New software and firmware updating the original Spin has now been implemented. Phosphates are now included in the tests and overall accuracy has been enhanced

NoMoreAlgae

Use this product to keep your pool clear all Winter One bottle per 7,500 gallons or 35m³ £17

 First check pH adding some pH reducer if over 7.6. Shock  pool with liquid chorine or HTH (Superfast Shock) and brush walls  and floor. If chlorine level is around 10ppm 24 hours later  then add NoMoreAlgae.  If pH was over 7.8 then more pH  reducer will probably be required. Note that high chlorine  levels can interfere with pH readings so wait until chlorine  readings are less than 10ppm.

 Very wet weather may have lowered the overall water  balance on outdoor pools making the water more aggressive  - see below.
