Swimming Pool Construction and Maintenance  

by Pool Builders on 04-11-2013 in Articles

A swimming pool is a fantastic addition to your lifestyle, something to enjoy and appreciate for many years to come and, for many people, the culmination of a lifelong ambition. Like any other large scale construction project, installing a pool and all that goes with it is a major exercise that needs careful planning and consideration. You need to think about what type of pool will most suit your requirements, where best to position it, what you will need in addition to the actual pool to enhance the enjoyment of your pool such as terracing, landscaping, heating, housing, safety equipment, maintenance items, and more. And then, add up all the expenses and cost involve before making a decision. Remember, the actual cost of the pool itself can often be just the tip of the iceberg.

At DIY stores, they install polyblock reinforced concrete pools because they know that they are far and away the best method of pool construction available anywhere in the world that is why they are able to offer an unprecedented 15 year structural guarantee on all their pools. This method of pool construction came out easily on top of recent survey on international magazines. All of the equipment that they supply with their pools is of top grade professional standards. Let us not be fooled by cheap pool installations offered elsewhere, remember, they are cheap for a reason.

However, this DIY store don't only do swimming pools, they also supply a huge range of safety and other pool accessories and also offer planning, landscaping and terracing services. They have a variety of complete solution packages, available to offer you total ease of mind for your dream recreational installation. They can tailor make a package to meet your requirements and avoid all the problems associated with multi-contracting your project. As a fully registered and insured building and carpentry company, they can also offer all other building services and have completed several large scale barn conversions, new builds and renovations often to complement their pool construction business.

When you first buy or inherit a swimming pool or spa the whole concept of water chemistry can be quite daunting. In this article, we endeavor to explain the process of how to balance the water of domestic swimming pools and spas. This is by no means a complete bible of pool care, but it will hopefully remove of the myths and clarify the basics. DIY stores provide the main four elements you must test for and keep balanced on a regular basis. There are many other elements that a pool professional can test for and we would advise you to have a full water test carried out at least once a year to make sure there are no underlying problems. This is especially important if you use well water.

€ Total alkalinity - weekly for pools, every 3 to 4 days for spas.

€ PH - weekly for pools, every 3 to 4 days for spas.

€ Water hardness - every time you top up of fill up the water, if there has been heavy rainfall, and at least once a month.

€ SANITISER - weekly for pools, every 3 to 4 days or prior to usage fro spas and hot tubs and at least once a week regardless of usage.

You can purchase the testing kits at the DIY stores and follow the schedules above for clean, clear water maintenance of your swimming pools.
