Prevention is better than cure and this is particularly important in winter when it’s often a case of ‘out of sight, out of mind’. That’s because your pool is more susceptible to going green and looking dirty because it isn’t given as much attention when you’re not using it. However, the more preventative products you use now, the more money you will save in the long run – and the fewer problems you will have at the beginning of spring and summer when you want to start using your pool again.
Protect your investment with Swimart’s Specialised Pool Care Pack
Aqua-Health’s Winter Pool Protection Pack utilises three potent products that are used in conjunction with each other to act as an insurance policy against common problems that occur in winter, such as algae, phosphates, a build-up of calcium and scale, stain causing metals in the water and a scale encrusted salt chlorinator cell.
You can easily minimise the chances of these problems occurring with Swimart’s Winter Pool Protection Pack, which includes the following:
- Aqua-Health Concide for algae
- Aqua-Health Starver®M for phosphates
- Aqua-Health Aquaguard C.S.M. for scale, calcium and metals, and also to protect your chlorinator cell if you have one
Aqua-Health Concide is Swimart’s recommended ‘winteriser’ and is the perfect algae protector for your pool right through the colder months. It’s a long life, copper-based algaecide that will both kill and control algae growth, as well as causing a notable drop in chemical costs. It is very economical to use and one 500ml dose will treat a 60,000-litre pool for up to three months.
Aqua-Health Starver®M is our high strength phosphate remover and preventative. It should be used in winter to keep the phosphate level as close to zero as possible in order to give algae nothing to feed upon and allow other chemicals to work at their most effective levels. Leaves, rain, plants, grass clippings, fertiliser and bathers all deposit phosphate in to the water. In most cases, the presence of phosphate indicates that this is likely to be an ongoing problem. This is another reason why it makes good sense to dose a phosphate affected pool regularly with Aqua-Health Starver®M. Phosphate is a major food source for algae. If you have phosphate in the water algae is sure to follow. Phosphate also prevents other chemicals from working at their most effective levels. These include algaecides, chlorine, salt chlorination and all other sanitisers.
Aqua-Health Aquaguard C.S.M. is another product highly recommended by Swimart for winter. It is a multi-function preventative solution that can be used for a diverse range of issues to enhance the quality of pool surrounds, pool equipment and pool water. It only needs to be added to a pool once every three months for regular maintenance and you only need to add 500ml to 50,000 litres of pool water.
Special features include:
- Keeping scale at bay by assisting in the removal of existing scale and inhibiting the build-up of scale from pool walls, equipment and pipes
- Acting as an extremely powerful sequestering agent meaning that its presence in the water will inhibit metal elements such as iron and copper from dropping out of solution
- Working as a salt chlorinator cell protector by inhibiting the build-up of scale on chlorinator cells, keeping them soft and preventing the likelihood of build-up from occurring in the first place
Swimart’s Winter Pool Protection Pack can guard your pool from so many different things throughout winter as well as saving you time, hassles and money at the beginning of the swimming season when you are ready to dive back in!
