“He Used What?”

Swimming pool poles are obviously a useful tool to have at your disposal as a pool owner, however our recent customers have realised they can be used for another of their hobbies!

Keen caravaners Sam and Kerry, unfortunately snapped one of the poles of their caravan awning. Being geniuses they realised that a Telescopic Handle would be a perfect replacement for their awning.
Amazing what can be done with an imagination and a Telescopic Handle!

Over-Stabilisation

The symptoms will mimic those of a pool with very little or no chlorine, i.e. cloudy water, algae and there may also be a pungent ‘chlorine-like’ smell.

 Probable causes:
• Excess of cyanuric acid (stabiliser)
Cyanuric acid (stabiliser) is essential in an outdoor pool to reduce chlorine loss by sunlight.
However, the level must be kept below an upper limit and if you are using stabilised chlorine products such as Chlorine Granules, Premium 5 Granules, Premium 5 Tablets, Maxi or MiniTabs, its concentration may well increase, depending on the level of routine water replacement.
This condition is sometimes referred to as ‘chlorine lock’ and although a perfectly healthy free chlorine reading can be obtained, the efficiency of the chlorine will be greatly impaired by the high level of cyanuric acid. The cyanuric acid level should be between 30 – 60 mg/l.
It should be tested periodically throughout the season as if allowed to build up, the problems above will most likely occur.
What you may need:
Superfast Granules Shock & Sanitiser – To shock chlorinate the pool
Superfast Superchlorinator – For shock chlorination
pH & Alkalinity Reducer – To correct high pH
—————————————————-
All chemical handling should be carried out within the guidelines laid out on the product label.
*Before adding any chemicals to your pool, ensure nobody is swimming  & keep the circulation running to ensure adequate dispersion of the chemicals.*

Low pH

Low pH can lead to skin irritation and corrosion of equipment.

Probable causes
• Mains water which has a naturally low pH
• Use of acidic sanitiser
• Excess addition of pH reducer
Regulating pH is one of the most important aspects of pool care. It should be maintained in the range 7.2 – 7.6.
Low pH can corrode metal fittings and copper heat exchanger tubes.
It will cause discomfort to bather’s eyes & skin. The chlorine which will be less stable, may be aggressive towards materials of construction in general.
pH Increaser – To correct low pH
