The suns heat has the ability to surprise you, so be prepared. Don't leave checking the health of your pool to the last minute. Matt has simple instructions you can follow so green pools will be a thing of the past.

Time For Swimming

  • Double-check the chlorinator; pump and filter are all in working order and remember to adjust the running time to suit the whole family and neighbours
  • Checking all equipment helps reduce the risk of a green pool caused from a sudden change of climate or extra swimmers. It will also help uncover problems or issues with equipment long before they become an urgent fix
  • Take a sample of your pool water to your local PoolWerx Store for analysis. They can test your water for all the critical elements in about 60 seconds so you know what your pool needs to get back on track
  • Take the sample from about 45cm deep of your pool (or up to your elbow)
