Pool Tips

Does your Kreepy work for 10 minutes after a backwash and then get sluggish until it stops? The swimming pool filter is the most underrated yet important piece of equipment your pool has. The filter is the kidney of the swimming pool and if it fails, the pool will surely not survive.

Clogged filter sand causes the swimming pool water to become cloudy and green. It also causes the Kreepy to eventually stop working. Once this happens you know you have circulation problems, on top of filtration problems.

It is quite a big task to open a sand filter and although this is often the best way to find out the condition of the sand, if you do not wear protective clothing, you run the risk of becoming very ill, especially if your sand is infected with bacteria.

The best treatment you can give the sand filter without actually changing the sand, is to recondition the sand with a filter sand cleaner.

There are many sand cleaners on the market. Be careful not to confuse a filter sand cleaner with a filter 'enhancer'. A filter enhancer usually causes the clogging of the filter by using gels or polymers in order to trap finer particles of dirt. Not what you want if your filter is already clogged!

This filter sand cleaner strips all the oil, sun lotion and any other debris that gets trapped in the sand filter. It helps get rid of the stubborn debris that doesn't come out easily with a backwash.

Blupool is situated at 20 Davallen Ave, Glenashley, Durban North KZN South Africa.

This swimming pool in Westbrook on the KwaZulu Natal North Coast is leaking very badly through cracks in the structure. The ground that the pool was built in has moved substantially over the years, causing the structure to open up like a shell. By looking at the water level on the left compared to the level on the right, one can see that the left side of the pool has dropped, making the pool lob-sided.

Structural rehabilitation would include securing the bank next to the pool with retaining blocks, reinforcing a new, thicker ring-beam, and casting a new shell within the existing shell.

Blupool Swimming Pool Services in Durban North KwaZulu Natal have consulted with the body corporate about the required remedial work on this swimming pool.


Does your Pool Water Look Clean?

Going for a swim? It turns out that people aren’t the only ones who find water inviting when the Durban temperatures soar.

Microbes, like bacteria that live on our skin and in our noses, get into the pool whenever we swim. Not all of them make us sick, and chlorine can kill a lot of them, but sometimes it takes days for that to happen.

If your pool stinks of chlorine, that’s not a sign that it’s clean. In fact, the stronger the odor, the harder the chlorine is working to kill urine, sweat, dirt, feaces and other things that swimmers bring to your pool.

Bring a sample of your pool water to BLUPOOL for an analysis. We'll kill dem bugs!

This new product will help you remove any unsightly stains that you may have in your pool.
