    Getting your pool ready for summer

    Published on 21 March 2019, Thursday, 4:16 AM

    As the weather warms up and you start to take advantage of the spring weather to make home repairs, you may want to put swimming pool care at the top of your list so it's ready by the time summer comes.

    Proper pool care means more than just skimming the surface with a net and making sure the chemicals are right. If you can, it's a good idea to drain your pool once a year to put fresh water in and assess any cracks or other damage that may be forming in the concrete.

    To drain your pool, you'll need a submersible pump from Kennards Hire that can move at least 18,000 litres of water per hour. These devices are small and lightweight, and can get the job done quickly.

    Once the pool is dry, it's also a good idea to clean any areas of the concrete that may have built up algae stains over time, or any other marks that may have come from cleaning equipment or pool toys.

    Submersible pumps are extremely versatile, and can be used to drain several types of tanks or even for dewatering purposes at construction sites.
