You want to improve your pools safety features?

Year after year new safety features appear on the pool market, you obviously can not change your safety features each year but if you are still using an older wall mounted cover or your drains do not comply with safety regulations then it may be time for a change. Safety covers now come in a wide variety of colours and styles and our disappearing leading-edge safety covers are easy to use, offer impeccable safety and whilst not in use they disappear into their own purpose-built channel. Older pools were often fitted with a single main drain, this runs the risk of entrapment and it is now regulation to fit two main drains to reduce this risk.

You want to save money and improve your pools energy efficiency

There are so many ways to improve your pools energy efficiency including changes to your heating system, lighting, chemical dosing and heat retaining covers. Let’s start with heaters, now if you currently have a gas boiler or oil heater and this is because you do not have an electricity supply, then there is not a lot that can be done with regards to heating but keep reading for other money saving options. Now if you are currently running and electric heater did you know you could dramatically improve your efficiency and lower your monthly outgoings by investing in a modern heat pumps, heat pumps have increased c.o.p’s with some with a c.o.p of up to 16, this means that for every £1 you spend you get 16kw of energy back. Heat pumps have come a long way in the past few years and now offer great features such as soft starts, this means they gradually turn on and therefore there is no spike in electricity usage.

Now back to those of you who have oil or gas, fear not there are other ways you can save money such as swapping your lights to LED’s, investing in a newer lower energy consumption filter and pump, which will not only keep your water crystal clear but will also help keep your chemical costs down as they will keep the tiny particles which cause bacteria growth and algae at a minimum. A well-insulated cover will reduce your heating bills and also reduce water evaporation and chemical loss. If you have an outside pool a good solar cover will help trap heat but also transfer heat from the sun so you can take advantage of that massive heater in the sky.

Pool dosing system

Lastly chemical dosing can cost you more if it not done regularly and properly, many customers will find that their pool needs shocking, extra dosing, more cleaning etc when they do not have a dosing system. A dosing system will keep your pool chemicals at the optimum levels which means you have less to worry about and can spend more time enjoying your pool. Another great reason to get a dosing system is the impact chemical spikes have on your pool equipment, the spikes can cause excessive corrosion and reduce their longevity.
