OUTDOORS LOVING LIFE BY THE POOL MAKING ONE BIG SPLASH The secret to your pool's health and longevity is routine care. Picture: FLUID DESIGN AND BLUE POPPY PHOTOGRAPHY Janita Singh Details: Visit swimart.com.au AUSTRALIA is the land of pool lovers. Something we knew all along has now been confirmed by a survey. The poll, by pool and spa care specialist Swimart, shows that around 13,000 pools are built annually in this country, and that Australia has the highest (per capita) rate of pool owner- ship in the world. Along with the barbecue, swimming pools have long been an integral part of this country's social fabric. Eighty one per cent of those surveyed said they would prefer to relax by their pool rather than go to the beach, with most citing relaxation as the most preferred pool pastime (48 per cent), followed by family time (36 per cent). For 42 per cent of Australian homeowners, the pool was a deciding factor in buying their current home, while 51 per cent believed having an eco-friendly pool was important. Today, the pool is deemed an integral part of a home, with 45 per cent respondents saying the pool is integrated into their home design. Swimart's Australasian man- ager Chris Fitzmaurice says the research is testament to the appeal of ''Aussie swimming pool culture''. With the start of the swim- ming season, he urges home- owners to prepare their pools. ''Granted maintainance of pools varies but they do share one key thing --- the secret to their health and longevity is routine care,'' Mr Fitzmaurice says. Regular maintenance of your pool and its equipment will ensure its best performance. In addition to making sure water chemistry is correct, habitual maintenance enables any parts that are failing to be corrected or repaired before the whole unit requires replacement.
