After a long, cold Winter, South Africans cannot wait to get back into the pool. Below are some expert tips on preparing pools for Summer.

 TO START

• Clear the pool cover from leaves and debris that might have collected over the win­ter.

• Remove leaves, sticks and debris that    may have fallen into the pool.

• Clean the weir basket and pump basket by removing all debris.

• Check that the filtration sys­tem is working. Check the pump lid O’ring and make sure the pump is function­ing properly.

• Fill the pump basket with water to assist priming the pump. Run the pump for 8-10hrs a day.

• Vacuum the pool if there is any debris on the floor of the pool.

• Fill the pool – the water level should be up to the middle of the weir opening.

• Check the pool cleaner – check each hose and all connections, check that the diaphragm is not damaged.

TEST THE WATER

• Take a water sample and test with the Blu52 test.

• Adjust accordingly

• Alkalinity: Adjust total alkalinity to 80-125 ppm for plaster pools; or to 125-150 ppm for fibreglass pools.

• Total alkalinity should be adjusted before adjusting the pH.

• Adjust pH: For chemical efficiency and swimming enjoyment, pH should be 7.2 – 7.6.

• Test stabilizer level: Measure the amount of pool water stabilizer or cyanuric acid. Make sure the pool has at least 30 -50ppm to prevent loss of chlorine from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
