Spring Clean

15 September 2015

People live increasingly busy lives, which means cleaning the pool is often well down the list of “to do” jobs and sometimes slips off the radar altogether.

Spring clean your pool the easy way. Keep the pool cleaning blues at bay this spring with Swimart Home Services. These services are as varied as there are pool maintenance needs and can be tailored to suit your requirements and budget.

Spring into pool cleaning

It’s spring and while a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love, (with apologies to Alfred Tennyson) a pool owner’s fancy turns to thoughts of splashing in crystalline water as the sun shines down. Then they sigh as they recall all the scrubbing, cleaning and maintenance that precedes the splashing, diving and relaxing.

Fortunately, there’s a way to avoid the spring (pool) cleaning blues – and it’s called Swimart Home Services. These services are as varied as there are pool maintenance needs and can be tailored to suit your requirements and budget.

Home Pool Health Check

If no-one’s been in the water since April, then it may not be healthy – and that’s not something you want the kids to start splashing around in. This service involves a cursory check of pool or spa filtration equipment as well as a full water health test by a qualified and experienced Swimart pool technician. If water treatment is needed, then they can provide the right chemicals for you to do it yourself or do the job for you for an extra charge.

Pool Cleaning Service

Of course a clean pool is a healthy pool, and it’s a job that needs to be done regularly. But with people living increasingly busy lives, cleaning the pool is often well down the list of “to do” jobs and sometimes slips off the radar altogether. Swimart’s Pool Cleaning Service can ensure peace of mind as well as a sparkling pool. The technician can perform essential maintenance services tailored to the needs of your pool including vacuuming, water balancing and equipment checks.

Pool/Spa Owners Instruction Service

Those who would like to maintain their pool or spa equipment but aren’t sure how to go about it, can learn from the experts. The Swimart Owner Instruction Service teaches householders everything they need to know about their pool or spa and its equipment, including emptying baskets, water balancing and backwashing filters as well as supplying a Pool Maintenance Booklet to ensure the ongoing maintenance program is as easy and stress-free as possible.

Water Health Check

Water analysis is an important regular part of maintaining a healthy pool or spa. Swimart stores offer a free water analysis service but pool or spa owners who are short on time can have a technician visit their home. They analyse the water and recommend any chemicals that are needed.

94 Point Pool Check

This is the ultimate in pool or spa maintenance. The 94 Point Pool Check is a comprehensive maintenance service that ensures the pool or spa is as efficient, well-maintained and as safe as possible.

Filter Sand Change

Filter sand needs to be replaced every four to five years to ensure it continues to perform at peak effectiveness. Swimart technicians can replace the sand as needed or upgrade to Glass.

Filter Clean and Degrease Service

Filters also need to be cleaned and degreased to keep them in good condition and ensure healthy water. Swimart offers a full filter clean and degrease service, which includes the Aqua Health Filter Degreaser in the cost. (All other parts are extra).

Pool/Spa Filtration Problem Solving

Even the handiest pool or spa owner can find themselves stumped by underperforming filtration or cleaning equipment. Swimart offers on-site pump, filter and chlorinator problem solving services to get to the bottom of such problems.

Pool/Spa General Repairs

As a pool and spa specialist, Swimart’s technicians are qualified to undertake all pool and spa equipment repairs.
