More helpful hints, to make your pool work better for you!

Chlorine dissappears with sunshine and heat, so it is a waste of time and money to put your chlorine into the pool during the day. Anytime AFTER 5PM and always AFTER PEOPLE HAVE FINISHED SWIMMING FOR THE DAY. The quantity of chlorine will vary from pool to pool, but an average inground pool requires 2 LITRES OF LIQUID per night.

If you can smell chlorine around your pool (particularly in the evening) that is when you need to add more chlorine, because what you are smelling is fumes coming from your pool of chlorine that has already done its job. If it has been raining or exceptionally hot or you have had a lot of people in the pool DOUBLE THE DOSE.


Stabilizer is a Sunscreen for your Pool.
Added to your pool once or twice per year means that your chlorine is not going to dissappear so quickly. Without sunscreen your chlorine on a sunny day would have all dissappeared by 11am. With sunscreen you will get a good chlorine reading all day.

Directions for adding stabilizer are as follows:

Add 1 cupful of stabilizer to skimmerbox with pump on., wander off to do something for a few minutes, come back and add another cupful. Continue until the packet is empty. DO NOT CLEAN YOUR FILTER (hose or backwash) for at least 4 DAYS after you have done this. Otherwise you will have washed it all away. This chemical is hard to disolve.

P.S. Don't forget Chlorinate at night after everybody has finished swimming. All rights reserved © Copyright 2000 -
