Summer  Season

Summer is now with us and has been much warmer sunnier weather than most recent years. If you are late opening or pool been a bit neglected then we have plenty of fresh liquid chlorine, Superfast Shock and our NoMoreAlgae. The shop now open Sunday mornings during the summer.

The Water Balance should be checked and adjusted as necessary. Another wet winter may have caused the Calcium Hardness and Total Alkalinity levels to become depleted unless a substantial amount of fresh tap water has been added this season. A water sample will be required if you want us to check the balance for you. We can offer a full Balance check, plus “Total Dissolved Solids” and a report using the Spin Photometer for just £5. The long awaited update for the Spin has now arrived with improved accuracy as well as testing 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 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.

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.

Still only £17.50 for 20 Litres


The Waterlink Spin Photometer

We can’t believe we have been using our old Waterlink express photometer for 18 years now. It was “state of the art” at the time but now this latest updated version offers much greater potential accuracy in less than half the time. The same 8 tests are are carried out plus phosphates using just one disc.

The checks are for Free and total chlorine - sanitation

pH, Total Alkalinity, Total Hardness - for Water Balance

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

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

We think it fair to charge a nominal £5 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 Summer.

One bottle per 10,000 gallons or 45m³

First check pH adding some pH reducer if over 7.5. Shock pool with liquid chorine or 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.


Open on Sundays until 29th October 2017. Please Note

Variable Speed Sta-Rite

We have a limited number of these super efficient pumps in stock at the very special price of £750.

New more efficient permanent magnet motors run much cooler. The slower running speeds use much less electricity for slightly reduced water flow. Ideally needs a 24” filter with 1HP pump (¾HP min) to make real savings. This pump is a must if you have a Heat Pump or run pump 24 hours a day.
