A: Finding a pool leak is a process of elimination. Firstly you should check for visible signs of leakage around the pool equipment or for unusually moist spots on nearby lawns or gardens. Check that fittings on all pumps, filters and heaters are properly tightened and not showing signs of wear. Check for any leaky pump seals, leaky valves or leaky pump lids. If possible check the backwash lines for any water leakage there. If you suspect a leak is underwater then a simple dye test could help locate the exact position of the leak, if not then ask our friendly staff for further advice and recommendations.
A: No it is not chlorine free!! A saltwater pool is a swimming pool that has salt added to the water. The water is passed through an electrolytic cell (salt cell) and is electrolysed causing the salt water to separate, producing sodium hypochlorite (liquid chlorine). This chlorine purifies the water and when the process is finished it re bonds and returns to being salt water again.
A: Absolutely! Your pool water should be tested on a regular basis to help maintain the correct chemical balances. Incorrect chemical balances may harm your pools equipment, cause algae and other bacteria to grow and can make swimming an uncomfortable experience.
A: YES, YES, YES!!! A small leak can cause extensive damage over time if it is not repaired immediately. Small leaks left unchecked can cause structural damage to your pool and pool surrounds. Replacing the leaking water will become more costly over time and will cause strain on our already fragile water supply.
