Pool Advice

 Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Safely Light My Pool?

Pool lights provide a range of benefits for any swimming pool, including the ability to control the colour of your pool using LED lights and allowing for night swimming. These lights, however, can create a sense of apprehension, due to the use of electricity right next to water - thankfully, Essential Pools can help calm your mind.

Pool lights, when installed correctly, are incredibly safe. The safest options are modern, low-voltage pool lights - these are generally considered to be of virtually no risk. Pool lights must be installed during the construction of your pool and according to manufacturer instructions, to ensure the safety features are correctly configured. If the lighting system is not installed correctly, your lights may still work, but they can pose a safety risk by allowing other electrical failures to reach your pool. Luckily, employing a licensed electrician to install your pool lighting allows you to mitigate this risk. In fact, using pool lighting can help you monitor your children when they go swimming at night, ensuring your family is kept safe. You can achieve various improvements in the safety and practicality of your pool by ensuring the correct installation of pool lights.

If you want to use your after the sun has set, you could benefit from pool lights. Pool lights can help you use your pool at night, while also using your pool to create a dazzling display of colour in the dark.

Are There Solutions Available If I Can't Find Pool Salt?

As a whole, both the Mid Coast Region and the entirety of Australia has entered a pool salt drought, making it difficult for pool owners to get the salt they need. The pool will be rendered unsafe for swimming without the required amount of pool salt, though, as bacteria and algae will begin to grow, and the extra work performed by your chlorinator may lead to damage occurring. Fortunately, Essential Pools, the leading pool store near Taree, are the resident experts in pool salt, and we may be able to help you even if you cannot get your hands on enough pool salt for your pool. If you need help with your pool, you can call us on (02) 6552 4096, complete our online enquiry form, or come in-store to meet the friendly Essential Pools team.

A few alternative methods are available to keep your pool safe in the absence of the pool salt it regularly receives. Though regular pool salt may not be available, magnesium pool salt, a higher grade of pool salt when compared to typical pool salt, may be available. Magnesium salt can be processed into chlorine by most saltwater chlorinators, even though mineral pool systems are the normal use-case for magnesium pool salt. Alternatively, you can use a pool cover to keep the water in your pool from evaporating when it is not in use, conserving what chlorine is already present within the pool for longer. Before you add your regular dosage to the pool after an extended period without salt, test your pool water to determine if the dosage has been altered. With or without your regular pool salt, there are things you can do to keep your pool safe.
