What a difference a year makes, with improved optimism fuelled by an improving economic outlook and better weather last year, and even more optimistic weather forecasts for this summer….believe that when we see it!!!

 

For our part, CPC has reinvested in its business at record rates, including the  launch of Gold Horizons specialities, the near doubling of marketing support programmes and commissioning of new head office administration facilities (end of May completion).  Perhaps we need the 2014 weather forecast to come good!!!!

Spring Commission

Commissioning An Outdoor Pool in Spring

Spring has sprung and that means it’s time to start opening outdoor pools; here are a few hints and tips to help you.  If you have any questions about your pool then please leave a comment below and we will be happy to help.

Mr Sun Spring

  1. Ensure that the pool water level is close to the top of the pool to give sufficient water to be able to vacuum to waste.
  2. Clean and remove winter debris cover and if possible allow to dry before folding up and packing away for the summer – if the cover has sustained any damage during the winter now is a good time to get it repaired so it is ready for the autumn.
  3. Re-commission plantroom equipment.
  4. With the multiport valve in the waste position vacuum the pool floor to remove any debris that has settled during the winter – keep an eye on the water level in the pool as it will drop while you are vacuuming.
  5. After vacuuming give the filter a good backwash and rinse, then set it in the filtration position and keep the filter pump running.
  6. Brush pool walls thoroughly to get anything ‘clinging’ to the walls into suspension so the filter can start to remove any debris.
  7. Test the pool water paying particular attention to pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness – if there has been a lot of rain during the autumn it is likely that all the levels could be below the ideal ranges.  Dose the pool with any products required to correct the levels.
  8. Shock dose the pool with chlorine to satisfy any chlorine demand and establish a chlorine level.
  9. Apply an algaecide, either a long-life or regularly dosed version.
  10. If the chlorine level is not too high then fit the solar cover and give it a good brushing if required to clean it.
  11. Keep the filtration system operating continuously for a few days or until the pool water is clear and clean.  After a couple of days check the sanitiser, pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness levels are where they should be after the initial chemical treatments, adjust as required to achieve the ideal levels.

Dealers: We have a spring showroom poster available that displays the typical products required to open a pool.  Please ask for one on your next order.
