Healthy pools, healthy bodies
Safety first this summer
Keeping your pool fences secure and gates latched is obviously crucial in ensuring the safety of your pool when it comes to young children. But ensuring the health and balance of your pool water is also an important element of pool safety so you and your family can enjoy a long and fun-filled swim season.
Getting the most out of your spa
Essential information to keep it clean and healthy
Did you know the concept of spas and hot tubs stems back to Macedonian king Alexander the Great? After his campaigns, he and his troops would soak in hot water to revive them and heal their ailments. Then in the late 1960s, Italy’s Jacuzzi family invented the first tubs with jets.
Wild Weather = Green Pools.

Cover up with a Pool Cover!
No pool is complete without one
Installing or using a pool cover is a simple and highly effective way of keeping your pool free of garden debris and bugs. But there are numerous other benefits to making sure your pool is covered up when not in use. Pool covers are an essential accessory for any pool and will save you both time and money when it comes to pool maintenance. And using a pool cover is one of the best ways of preventing your precious pool water evaporating, quite literally, into thin air.
