Re: pool service

Hi jaspers girl,
Your pool is 7m x 3.5m x 1.5m  around 35m3.
Bayrol soft and easy is a non chlorine sanitiser.
augmentateur d'alcalinute is bicarbonate of soda and not really likely to be needed.

I don't know what you bought in Super U I'm affraid so any more info would be useful.
One of the most important things is to get a good chemical tester.

I am not sure I know how to post pictures any more since the web people keep playing so good old fashioned email works for me john@le-pre.co.uk

Re: pool service

hello


Thanks for the help in the past the pool now is up and running just a couple of questions

i have been advise to put a large chlorine tablet in the skimmer there seems to be a lot of disagreement on this one ?

or to tablets in the container in the pool do i do this daily ?.

i run the pump over nite for roughly 4hrs and only put on in the day for cleaning.

round the sides of the pool is ingrain dirt which i am gradually removing with a soft brush  Fibreglass pool any suggestions?

thanks in advance

Hi jaspers girl, dont put large a chlorine tablet in the skimmer!  chlorine tablet are very acidic, so when the pump is off (all day in your case we can go onto that later) that high acidic level is dissolving into the skimmer, the pipework and eventually the pump all causing premature aging of that equipment.  The tablets also dissolve too quickly that way (when the pump is on) They were designed to go into the3 floating dispensers cheaply bought from most supermarkets.  Don't forget you can still use the javel you have been using it's down to making sure you have sufficient cyanuric acid to help prevent the loss of chlorine from sunlight. Too much cyanuric acid is also bad and it's in most tablets you buy.

With fibreglass pools you have to be careful what you use as you do with fibreglass boats etc. Try the Magic sponges again from a supermarket, these work very well but are quickly used up so buy plenty.

Re: pool service

No problem, remember now you are looking after your pool properly if you use a slightly higher free chlorine level it will remove organic staining by naturally bleaching it away.
