Newsletter #1 27 Aug 2012

Hello, and welcome to MyPoolGuru Newsletter #1

We've seen the hottest of the summer weather (with any luck!) and the pool is now just the right temperature. However, in a few short weeks it will start to cool down unless you own, and use, a pool cover

Covering the pool reduces evaporation to next-to-nothing and evaporation is where 90-95% of the heat is lost from the pool. Reduce evaporation and the pool will remain warm much longer

It's not only at night that a cover brings benefits - keep it on all the time that you're not actually in the pool and you'll notice a big difference in water temperature

Routine Maintenance for the coming month is much the same as in August - test the pH and sanitizer level regularly; adjust as required. You might find you use a bit less Chlorine now the Grand-children have gone home and they're no longer peeing in the pool . . . . Bless 'em!
