What are the different types of swimming pools?

There are many different types of swimming pool, namely: indoor or outdoor pools; above ground or inground pools; large recreational swimming pools or smaller plunge pools; salt water pools or chlorinated; and lap pools, which generate a current to swim against, for exercise.

What type of tile is best for swimming pools?

Porcelain and ceramic tiles are traditionally the most popular choice for swimming pools, although we have seen glass and sealed stone used to stunning effect.

How to remove algae from pool?

First, use a test kit to test water for chlorine, stabiliser and pH level. Add a pool shock product to boost any residual chlorine in the water (follow directions carefully). Use a pool brush to scrub surfaces if covered in algae. Alternatively, contact us for Pool Cleaning Services.

How to clean swimming pool filter (sand)?

You should backwash your sand filter whenever it reaches 8-10 PSI over the normal operating level or if the pool water starts to get cloudy. Then, at least twice a year, chemically clean the sand filter while backwashing it, to remove dirt and debris. Alternatively, contact us for Pool Maintenance Services.
