We stock only high quality swimming pool chemicals. Maintaining a swimming pool is more than just adding chlorine. You want your swimming pool to be a safe and comfortable swimming environment for you and your family as well as protecting your swimming pool equipment and pool surfaces.
Before we talk about individual chemicals it is important to note some do’s and don’ts in relation to all swimming pool chemicals.
Always read the product label and follow directions carefully. They contain important information about proper application, handling and storage of the product you’re using. Improper use or handling can be hazardous and/or dangerous.
Always store chemical products safely with the containers tightly closed and out of reach of children. Ensure they are stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, away from other household, garden and petroleum products.
Always add maintenance products to the pool separately and in different areas.
Clean up any spills promptly. Small amounts can be hosed into the pool. For advice on larger spills contact Poolside Solutions.
Take care when putting product into the pool on windy days to prevent product from blowing into your eyes, mouth, skin or onto clothing.
Contact Poolside Solutions for advice on correct disposal of unused chemicals and containers.
Never interchange measuring scoops between products.
Never store liquids near other chemicals, petrol or metallic objects.
Never mix any kind together, and never smoke near the chemicals. An uncontrolled reaction such as fuming, fire or explosion could occur.
Never add water directly to chemicals, always add the chemical to large amounts of water.
Granular chlorine is a dangerous substance and will explode if you add small amounts of water to this chemical. Always either add granular chlorine directly in the pool or skimmer or in a large bucket of water. Remember water first.
Never inhale the fumes of the products.
