Backwash the filter once a week to keep the filter sand clean.
This will allow the filter to work to its maximum efficiency.
This is part of the backwashing process; it rinses the sand in the opposite direction to flush any debris to the waste outlet.
Skimmer Basket Emptied
This is a strainer basket to catch any surface debris from entering the filter system.
Pump Basket Emptied
This is emptied to allow the pump to turnover the maximum amount of water.
It also protects the pump from debris.
The sand will require changing between two to five years. We also do replacement pumps and filters.
This is carried out to remove any debris on the bottom of the pool.
We also brush the bottom and sides to loosen any debris or dead algae.
This is probably the most important part of all maintenance.
We test for correct chlorine levels in the pool.
Ph levels are also very important in order for the chlorine to work efficiently and to prevent eye irritation and ear infection.
We add anti algae chemicals to keep this at bay.
We also test for cynuric acid levels which can affect chlorine efficiency.
Chemical Supplied & Added
We only use top quality chlorine tablets and ph regulators which have other chemicals added to improve water quality and clarity.
Tile Band Cleaned
The tiled area round the water line often has a build-up of grease and sun-tan lotion especially in peak season. This needs to be cleaned on a regular basis with grease dissolving chemicals.
Weeding is carried out as required.
Irrigation system checked weekly for blocked jets and low battery levels in the timer.
Any infestation treatment is carried out when required.
Cutting back is carried out in order to promote fresh growth, especially in the spring.
Palms can be cut on request at an extra cost.
