Three o’clock clinic with Splash

DURING the summer months you may be experiencing all sorts of problems with your pool which Splash Pools can help you with.

A common one is the bottom of your pool turns green and the water looks murky even though the chlorine level is high.

This is usually caused by a high cyanuric level in the water.

Cyanuric acid is an additive in chlorine tablets that prevents the chlorine from being broken down by the sun’s ultra violet rays. The downside is that it builds up in the pool and the chlorine becomes less effective – resulting in you needing to use more chlorine to oxidise the urea/algae.

The only way to lower the cyanuric level is to change some of your water.

This does not relate to salt water pools as they have to add cyanuric acid in order for the chlorine (made by the salt water chlorinator) to be effective.

Splash Pools hold a clinic every afternoon at 3pm when you can bring a small sample of your pool (freshly taken) and have it analysed. They can then tell you what action to take for your particular pool problem.

If you cannot come at 3pm please call them on 952 591 053 and they will be able to tell you if anyone is available to make the test.
