What will heavy rain do to my pool? 26/06/2018

Did you know that one of the worst things for your swimming pool is… water? It’s no joke – rain water can mess with your home pool in many ways, from its electrics to the chemical balance and, in flood situations, it can even fry your pump.

What type of swimming pool heating should you use? 18/12/2017

If you’ve splashed out on a swimming pool at your property, you’ll know it’s one of the biggest single purchases a householder can make, adding desirability to any home.

But if your family’s not enjoying dips all year round, you may feel that you’re not getting full value for the money spent – especially as your pool still needs upkeep when not in use.

It can be a great investment to install heating to extend your swimming season. With the right heating system, your pool can be just as desirable in winter as in high summer.

The good news is that retro-fitting a pool heating system is a straightforward and effective solution if done properly.

There are four types of pool heating – solar, gas or electric and heat pumps. Each has its benefits, but a professional pool installer such as Barrier Reef Pools can advise on what will work best for you, based on the location and size of your pool.

Five reasons to use an Ozone Swim Sanitation System 21/11/2017

Did you know that 18% of residents in Western Australia live in homes which have swimming pools? We all know that pools need to be well maintained, hygienic and clean and the Ozone Swim Sanitation System is one of the best ways to achieve this. Ozone Swim uses an advanced oxidation process to produce ozone gas (03) into the pool circulation.

When this ozone (03) is injected into the water, it breaks down into oxygen which safely oxidises and destroys any contaminants, bacteria, viruses or impurities.
