Pool Maintenance after Flood, Bundaberg

Now the water is starting to recede and dry up around the place it is a good time to get in and bring your pool back to perfect swimming levels.

If you can keep your pool looking good you have much less problems to bring it back from green. First example you need to check the chlorine and ph levels if the pool looks ok. Also look at the output meter or lights on your chlorinator. If the reading is high this means your salt is reasonably good. If it is low you need more salt. With all the wet weather around there is currently a local shortfall in salt supplies. I have attached a link from ch 10 news about the salt and choices.

If your pool has gone green already you need to give your pool a big dose of chlorine and a dose of flock to settle the dead algae out. Looks pretty average but not that hard to overcome.

If you have had flood waters over your pool it is a whole different kettle of fish. Depending on the amount of silt in your pool as to what needs to happen. Some you can treat much like the badly green pool and at the other end of the scale you will need to empty it out, clean the pool & refill.

Normally You will not need to empty though.

  1. Good post. I learn one thing more difficult on different blogs everyday. It’s going to always be stimulating to learn content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I?d choose to use some with the content on my blog whether or not you don?t mind. Natually I?ll offer you a hyperlink on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
