Safety Tips


8 April 2016

The swimming season may be almost over for humans, but algae will continue to party in your pool unless you take steps to make it clear that it’s not welcome. Actually, it takes just one step to treat the water with an algaecide like Concide.

How to keep pool water blue and healthy this winter

Algae-ridden pools are among the most common and irritating problems that confront pool owners. After all, there’s nothing more unappealing than diving into a green murky swimming pool. It’s also dangerous and unhealthy. That algae that causes cloudy discoloured water is a plant that thrives in water with a high pH level. It grows from spores and attaches to the skin of swimmers, resulting in a slimy feeling.The slime washes off skin easily, but the danger is when it attaches to pool stairs, sides and ladders, and makes them slippery. It is important to check your pool water regularly for phosphates as this not only removes the main food of algae but enables other chemicals to work more effectively, thus saving you money.

Thankfully there is a simple solution to keep algae at bay - Aquahealth Concide. This preventative algaecide stops problems before they start, giving you peace of mind, not to mention freedom from all the hassles, expense and embarrassment that come with an algae-ridden pool.

Aquahealth Concide is Swimart’s number one algaecide of choice among customers and professional pool servicemen. The great thing is that it provides year-round protection against algae without the need for constant use. In fact, the average size pool needs just one 500ml dose of Aquahealth Concide each season, making it both easy and economical to maintain a healthy pool.
