Hi Jock,

You should not have to change the water at all providing the pool is properly looked after, if the pool is a chlorine one the chemicals do all the work, the pool may require to be topped up occasionally, it does not matter whether it is a skimmer pool or an overflow one the principal is the same if the pool is maintained filters regularly cleaned out, backwashed, and the PH levels monitored regularly you should have no bother, the same applies to saline pools although the cell in a saline pool requires a lot more care

Jock1 i was quoted by one company 40 a month for pool maintenance this seems an awful lot to fork out just to add chemicals

Hi Guys,

Jock - it is not just about adding chemicals

It is not all about DIY and just treating a pool with chemicals, as I have a vested interest I don't really like getting involved in this type of discussion

But I will try to explain some of the things required

Filters have to be cleaned - regularly, on Saline pools the cell has to be removed and has to be cleaned - regularly

The pool has to be hoovered and backwashed and the pool walls scrubbed down, the PH levels have to be checked regularly, the main filter sand has to be changed occasionally.

In the event that the wrong amount of chemical is used sickness and eye problems can occur, if the maintenance is not carried out properly the manufacturers warranty on the pumproom equipment is null and void

These are just a few of the things to think about

Best of luck

Hi Jock1/Jacko

I agree completely with Greg.

Unfortunately people are excited to think they have their own pool but tend to forget everything that goes with the maintenance of a pool. Its not just a case of filling it with water and chucking the odd cup of chlorine in. There is a lot of other things that need to be taken care of to keep a pool looking healthy and stop the water turning green.

I think you should be prepared to factor in a cost of between 500 - 650 per year for total maintenance costs.

Karen

Sounds about right, we have a 8m x 5m pool and been quoted 600 a year maintenance I thought it was a bit high but it seems the going rate.

We bought our equipment for around 125 and then all the chemicals for about 100. Why not get someone to train you to do your pool. There is a guy called tom (0533 877 5244) who trains people. He charges 350 which includes your training of 6-8 lessons and equipment and chemicals..

If you dont want to be trained John at the mambo bar does pools and i have heard he is very good. Charges are about the same 50 per month for 8x4 60 per month for 10x5

Hi Pilgrim, what kind of heater? I'm having one installed, it's a siphon heat pump which works like an air conditioning unit.

John.

Tiggy, heater running costs, about the same as running air con in villa during summer, bills were same in october and november when heater was running but not air con. We thought it was worth it as it was great to swim in 82degrees on cool evenings, felt like a bath.

regards
