HLF - Publication, Tuesday, September 30, 2008 3 ................................................. HOMELIVING Make a splash Preserve the deck Spa N Deck, by Flood Australia, is a water- based finish for protecting and rejuvenating timber decks. It as been developed to protect timbers from the harsh sunlight and salty coastal winds. Spa N Deck is absorbed deep into the timber grain and is guaranteed not to peel, blister or crack. Available at hardware outlets and paint specialists. Looks like stone Emulating the naturally-aged appearance of stone, Boral adds chalk and smoke colours to its popular Stoneworks range of large-format, handmade pavers. The range is designed with a bullnose finish, is pre-sealed and meets requirements for paving around pools. Details: Visit www.boral.com.au In deep end Swimming pools are no longer just the focal point of outdoor entertainment. A growing trend is the melding of interior living spaces to exterior entertainment and pool areas. Mosaics and decorative water features are making a comeback for a stylish look. Details: Visit www.ambertiles.com.au Unwind at home Relaxing in your own home spa is even more affordable with Blue Haven's latest releases. The new range includes a portable swim spa for $14,990 and a spa with a pop-up TV, at $12,990. Details: Visit www.bluehaven.com.au Turtle rides As well as having fun with it, this giant blow-up turtle will teach children balance while riding it in the pool. This novelty pool turtle is available at K mart for $14.99. But remember, it is not a lifesaving device and children should be supervised in pools at all times. Keep them safe As the swimming season nears, it's time to ensure pool fences and gates are safe and secure. NSW Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA) president Manfred Wiesemes says drownings have occurred because of broken gate locks, or where children have managed to fit through fence bars. ''So, if you haven't already done so, we would strongly recommend that pool owners have a SPASA pool technician conduct a check before the swimming season hits,'' Mr Wiesemes says. Laws require all swimming pools to be fenced unless they are specifically exempt. Fences must be at least 1.2m high and gates must be self- closing and self-latching. There must only be a maximum of 100mm between the bottom of the fence and the finished ground level. The association has free fact sheets and a publication for pool owners.
