Pool & Spa Chemicals
Our quality products and services are second to none.
Swimming pools are great for family fun, socialising, exercise and to add an extra dimension to the backyard. We want to help you get the most from your investment; our services and products are specifically tailored to achieving this. We can provide chemicals to keep the water safe, clean and sparkling; servicing and spare parts to keep equipment working; valet services to take the hard work out of owning a pool; and accessories to enhance your enjoyment of the pool.
Water balance is affected by a wide range of variables
Water balance is important as it ensures that the mineral content of the water is in an appropriate state to protect the pool surface and equipment and make the pool water more comfortable to swim in.
Sanitiser is essential for maintaining a healthy pool
Sanitising pool water treats bacteria, which can be harmful to people using the pool. Bacteria is caused by a wide variety of sources such as bathers, rain, dust, insects and birds. Sanitiser levels need to be maintained to keep bacteria at bay and also as an aid in controlling algae.
Keep the pool water sparkling and clear of impurities
Oxidation removes swimmer wastes and destroys organic contaminants in the water. The aim of regular oxidation is to keep the pool water sparkling and clear of impurities.
Pools for health, safety and aesthetic
Traditionally, sanitisers have been used to treat and control algae but this is proving to be much less reliable as algae species become more diverse and resistant. This leads us to the need for control agents designed specifically to counter the defence mechanisms algae has developed to protect itself.
Improving swimmer comfort
Pools can often be contaminated with matter that cannot be removed using sanitisers or oxidisers and which can affect the enjoyment of the swimming pool.
Metal, Stain & Scale Removers
Protect your pool surfaces
Scaling, the deposition of calcium from the water onto the pool surfaces, occurs when there is one or more of the following: high calcium hardness, high pH levels or elevated temperatures. It is unsightly and not good for the pool surface. Products are available that can remove this scale and can be used to prevent future scaling in pools where these conditions are likely to prevail, eg salt water pools with high pH (will also reduce scaling on salt cell plates).
Improving water clarity
A range of products that deal with specific issues such as:
- Chemically clean filter media to remove build up of contaminants.
- Reduce excessive chlorine levels.
- Clean salt cells without harming the cell.
- Removing dead algae from pool after super-chlorination.
Water balance is important as it ensures that the mineral content of the water is in an appropriate state to protect the spa surface and equipment and make the spa water more comfortable to bathe in.
essential for maintaining a healthy spa
The combination of heavy use and hot water places a tremendous burden on the sanitiser used. Whatever the source, all of the billions of microorganisms present in a spa need to be killed in some way and as quickly as possible.
hot water and heavy use also place a high demand on the oxidiser used in a spa
Even over a short period of time, spas can accumulate substantial waste material from a variety of sources, including the bathers themselves, animals, insects, pollutants and the general environment. These wastes cause the same problems that swimming pools suffer from such as dull, cloudy water that’s irritating to the skin and eyes with an increased incidence of resistant algae. Regular oxidation is needed to break these wastes down.
Gives the water a nice silky feel
Spas can sometimes experience problems that sanitisers and oxidisers cannot deal with, such as: foaming, cloudy water that does not respond to shock dosing, staining and scaling. Anti-foam, clarifiers and stain & scale control chemicals are available to address these issues.
A range of products that deal with specific issues such as:
- Chemically clean filter cartridge to restore its efficiency.
- Clean spa shells without harming the acrylic material.
- Cleaning out build-up of fats and oils inside the pipes behind the jets.
Properly balanced water is essential
Having properly chemically balanced water is one of the essentials to preventing pool and spa problems. Water chemistry critically affects bather comfort, equipment life and chemical efficiency.
We use the latest WaterLink Spin photometer technology along with a sophisticated analysis software package provided by our main chemical supplier – BioGuard Water – to carry out quick and accurate testing of water whilst you wait.
This gives you specific recommendations for chemical dosing to bring your spa or pool water into balance and ensure you have healthy, inviting, comfortable water that also protects your spa or pool.
Bio Guard Program
BioGuard’s Three Step Program for a Healthy Pool
BioGuard is one of the world’s largest suppliers of quality chemicals for spa and pool. Utilising carefully design products, BioGuard’s 3 step program was designed to ensure that no matter what challenges were placed on the pool throughout the year – be it environmental (leaves, dust, foreign debris), weather (rain, storms) or bather load, the pool would remain sparkling clear and inviting. Less work, less cost and pool owners have more time to enjoy their pool.
Step One – Ensure Healthy Water by adding BioGuard Smart Sticks® for weekly chlorination, BioGuard Power Chlor® for daily chlorination or BioGuard Power Tabs for fortnightly chlorination – using an inline chlorine feeder.
Step Two – Have Sparkling Clear Water via the addition of BioGuard Lite® shock treatment once a week through summer and monthly through winter. BioGuard Lite removes wastes that cloud water or reduce the effectiveness of pool chlorine.
Step Three – Prevent Algae Growth by a weekly addition of BioGuard MSA Extreme algaecide. This product ensures algae never gets a foot hold and prevents unnecessary and costly algae clean ups.
The BioGuard 3 step program is used by hundreds of thousands of pool owners throughout the world. It is a cost efficient, simple and effective water management program.
effective method to inactivate harmful protozoa
Ozone is a triatomic molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms (O3), which occurs naturally in the stratosphere. Ozone can be made artificially in compact electrical units from the oxygen in atmospheric air. Ozone readily gives up one atom of oxygen resulting in a powerful oxidizing agent that is toxic to most waterborne organisms and decays to ordinary oxygen in a few minutes in water.
100% environmentally friendly
UV water sanitising systems automatically do the work of killing bacteria and micro-organisms in the water through Ultra Violet light technology, the same sanitising technology employed by many local governments over the last 60 years and other hygiene driven industries to sanitise drinking water.
Nature2 is a mineral-based water purifier
Copper-silver ionization is a modern implementation of the ancient Greek practice of reducing bacteria in wine vessels by lining them with silver, and controlling algae and fungi with copper. Nature2 is a mineral-based water purifier that works with chlorine to keep your swimming pool or spa water healthy and clear with fewer chemicals.
treat all chemicals with respect and follow a few simple rules
- ALWAYS read the product label and follow directions carefully.
- ALWAYS store chemical products safely and out of reach of children.
- ALWAYS add products to the pool separately, at correctly spaced intervals and in different areas.
- CLEAN UP any spills promptly and dispose of safely.
- NEVER interchange measuring scoops between products.
- NEVER store chemicals near other chemicals, petrol, oil, paint, or metals.
- NEVER mix chemicals of any kind together. Fire or explosion could occur.
- NEVER add water directly to chemicals. ALWAYS add chemicals to large amounts of water.
