When summer arrives, you and your family will be keen to get your swimming pool open and back in use. Before diving in, there are a few steps that you'll need to take, including having the pool water tested by a pool services contractor to make sure that it's safe to swim in. Here's a quick guide to opening your pool. When the daytime temperature outside reaches around 210C, you should open up your pool.
Hot Tubs are a sign of decadence, fun, relaxation and parties. Yes, all of those. Cool things happen around hot tubs. How do we know this? The movies, of course. There have been some great scenes that have taken place in or around hot tubs. There's a whole online shop dedicated to things people have seen wearing in the movies, so it's churlish to suggest that movies don't influence what we want.
During the cooler months, you're very unlikely to actually want to use your pool, especially if you live in a part of Australia that regularly suffers from freezing temperatures. With that in mind, you might want to consider winterizing it. This involves creating a chemical balance, reducing the amount of water, flushing out the pipes, and, usually, covering the pool. It might seem like a lot of work, but winterizing your pool comes with a whole string of benefits, including:
Evaporation is an unavoidable reality when you own a pool. However, if you want to save resources and keep your water bill low, there are things you can do to reduce evaporation.

Owning a pool is a great addition to any home. Your pool area gives you a great ambience for entertaining guests while also being a great place to relax and get away from everyone. Moreover, you can get all the exercise you need all year round to stay fit. However, owning a pool is not simply about having it installed. You also need to ensure that the pool is kept safe or it could become a potential drowning hazard.
It used to be relatively easy to design pools for blocks, as you'd just look at the backyard and figure up which rectangular or kidney shaped pool could fit in the yard. With all sorts of new block shapes occurring when people subdivide old blocks, it can be more challenging to fit a traditional pool into a yard. However, some innovative pool designers and homeowners have come up with great pools that fit on unusually shaped blocks and make the most of limited space. This blog highlights some of the pools I have seen online and in real life that have impressed me with great design. I hope you like it.
