PoolSchool Introduction

When you think about it, keeping fifty tons or more of exposed-to-the-elements water in crystal clear condition is no easy task. A pool is constantly under assault from algae and fungi spores, garden debris, rain, sun, wildlife, pets, building/quarry/road dust and a host of other pollutants.

That's before any humans get into the water and add their share of sun-oils, make-up, hair, dead skin, body fats and urine - (yes, I'm afraid people still do!) - never mind the Labrador and the local wildlife!

When pools go bad they can turn very quickly. After a summer storm your pool can become a murky, green swamp overnight. Not a pretty sight in the morning and an expensive mess to clear up.

The pool-owner is left to clean the pool up, or leave it to a professional pool cleaner and, at the end of it all, pay the bill. Alternatively, you could Learn how to clean and maintain your pool to Professional Standards and prevent it from ever going green in the first place!

Take the PoolSchool Course and start saving money - we offer Instruction at Home in two phases: -
