Tips to Reduce Pool Maintenance

Sep 11, 2015

One of the common misconceptions about buying a pool is the amount of time needed to maintain your pool. Who can remember dad spending hours with the pool scoop and chlorine bucket on the weekend? I do!

Technology of fibreglass swimming pools and equipment has come a long way in the last twenty years. In fact, we have a lot to be proud of here in Australia we have one of, if not the most sophisticated fibreglass pool industries in the world. What does this mean for you?

It means when you buy a Narellan Pools fibreglass swimming pool and equipment or “engine” to drive your pool, you know its superior quality. It means you can be rest assured that pool maintenance is going to be easier and cost effective for you and your family.

While things have come a long way, there still is some work to do to keep your swimming pool in pristine condition. Once the installation is complete and you have received handover from your pool builder, it’s your responsibility to maintain it to protect your family and your warranty.

Let’s look at four key areas of low pool maintenance;

1. Swimming Pool Size

This may seem obvious, but choose a pool that best suits your lifestyle; a bigger pool can mean a little more cleaning and maintenance. Narellan Pools has an incredibly diverse range of fibreglass swimming pools to suit any size or configuration of backyard.

2. Pool Equipment

The swimming pool equipment or “engine” is a critical part of keeping your pool clean and safe for swimming. Choosing equipment can get overwhelming but let’s break it down. Simply put, you need three key pieces of equipment;

  1. Pump; simply moves water in your swimming pool
  2. Filter; to remove debris and oxidized material from the water
  3. Sanitiser; to destroy waterborne germs, kills bacteria and inhibits the growth of viruses.

Some pool builders try to cut costs with their pool equipment but this is risky as it can increase your maintenance and electricity costs and more importantly, put your family at risk of swimming in unsafe water. At Narellan Pools, all our equipment suppliers have gone through a rigorous approval process to ensure they meet our expectations on quality.

It is critical that you choose a reputable pool builder to not only get a good quality swimming pool shell but who will also have the right knowledge and experience to recommend the right equipment for your pool.

Your Narellan Pools expert pool builder has been trained to the highest standard both on the very important installation of your swimming pool and the equipment to ensure your pool is pristine all year round and you get the longevity you should from your swimming pool.

3. Cleaning Systems

Technology has come leaps and bounds with cleaning swimming pools so gone are the days of laborious weekend cleaning regimes. Options available today include robotic, suction and in-floor cleaners.

Narellan Pools offers all cleaning options available and can tailor a cleaning solution that best meets your needs and your budget.

4. Pool Covers

Pool covers provide the final piece of the puzzle for low maintenance pools. Not only help keeping them clean, but also limiting evaporation, one of the major causes of water loss from swimming pools in the Australian climate.

When you purchase your Narellan Pools Swimming Pool, talk to your Narellan Pools qualified swimming pool builder about a fitted pool blanket that helps reduce evaporation and water loss by 97% also helping to keep your swimming pool warm all year.
