Pool Maintenance Tips For Holidays

Going away? Follow these tips to keep your pool sparkling until you return

If you are away for more than a week, your unattended pool will collect debris and bacteria that can upset the water balance. Before you go away, follow these simple steps to keep your pool in shape:

  1. Shock the pool

  2. Add 200mL of algaecide per 10,000 litres of water for every week that the pool will be left unattended. For salt pools, use a salt pool protector.

  3. Continue normal filtration and circulation for up to 12 hours per day (depending on season) using a timer.

When you return from your trip, take a water sample into your local SPASA pool shop to ensure that your pool water is properly balanced and ready for swimming.
