Home Living : August 2nd 2011
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 2, 2011 7 Host a clean pool party Pool owners should start planning their pool parties now. NOW is the perfect time to start dreaming of warmer days. And if you're the proud owner of a swimming pool, you have more reasons to celebrate. Swimming pool owners should start getting ready for the ultimate pool party season now. With hot sunny days and good times in mind, Zodiac, which specialises in pool technology and equipment supplies, has some great pool care tips to keep your pool sparkling clean and make the fun times even more of a splash. Before guests arrive and after they leave, there are a number of handy hints to make a difference to your day. What to do before guests arrive: Give the pool a good clean with a vacuum or automatic pool cleaner. When removing the cleaner make sure not to roll the hose and store it out of direct sunlight; Check the skimmer basket and the pump's lint pot, and remove leaves and debris. Fill the pool so the water level is just over halfway up the mouth of the skimmer box as splashing and evaporation will quickly lower the water level; Test the pool water and ensure chlorine levels and pH levels are correct; Add a PQ Clear Tab to the skimmer basket, which will ensure the water is crystal clear and ready to be enjoyed. What to do while the pool is used: Make sure you run the pool filter continuously while guests are swimming in the pool. This will keep your pool as safe and healthy as possible. What to do after guests leave: Give the pool another good clean using your pool vacuum or automatic pool cleaner; If water levels are low, fill the pool to just over halfway up the mouth of the skimmer basket; After hours of fun, your pool may be a little cloudy. This is due to a depletion of chlorine in the water, and is easily fixed by stocking the pool with chlorine and running the filter for 24 hours. Add a clarifier to the pool water, which will help remove oil and scum marks, clear cloudy water and improve the filter's efficiency. Details: Call Zodiac on 1800 688 552, or visit www.zodiac.com.au.
