10-point pre-season pool safety checklist

The weather is warming up around the country and before we know it, summer (and school holidays) will be on here. While many of us have kept up our maintenance routine over winter to keep the water clean and clear, we probably haven’t given much consideration to the equipment we rely to keep the pool area safe – the fence, gate and latch, to name a few.   “Owning a pool or spa is one of life’s great pleasures, but for the safety of young children and non-swimmers, it’s really important that they are properly secured and maintained not only throughout summer but year-round,” says Chris Fitzmaurice, Swimart’s national manager.    “Nothing replaces […]

3 signs your pool filter needs to be backwashed

One of the simplest and most reliable ways to maintain healthy pool water throughout the year – especially in the busy summer season – and keep your filtration system clean is to backwash regularly. Not exactly sure what that means? Well, as the name suggests, backwashing involves reversing the flow of water through your filter media, be it Zeoplus, sand, glass pearls or diatomaceous earth (DE). This dislodges dirt and debris that may have become trapped, and flushes it out through your multiport valve waste line. Knowing when to backwash your filter is really important in keeping your pool water clean and filtration equipment in peak condition. The good news […]
