Fortunately there are a few ways to find a leak in your swimming pool if you suspect there is one.

There’s nothing like a Durban summer; with its sunny skies, braais and more public holidays than days in the week (or so it sometimes seems)! The last thing you want to do is spend this downtime trying to sort your swimming pool out because you’ve failed to regularly maintain it the rest of the year. And no swimming pool means having to brave the crowds at the public beaches, searching for parking and dealing with sticky, sulky children who’d rather be splashing about outside.

Owning a swimming pool in Durban, or any other city is a wonderful luxury, but before you can make splashes and waves, you need to take responsibility for its upkeep and general health.
To ensure that your swimming pool water is safe (gentle on swimmers) and clean, proper water chemistry is required. Buying a pool cover, removing debris from the pool regularly, circulating the water and filtration all go a long way towards ensuring that you can enjoy a crystal clear pool in the scorching summer heat. But that’s not all you need to do. Ensuring that you have the correct PH levels and adjusting the chemicals in your swimming pool water accordingly, is also important.

There is often a debate about which chlorination treatment is better for a swimming pool: using traditional chlorine or choosing to use salt chlorination. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of using salt chlorination for your swimming pool.
Using salt chlorination is a cost effective option, compared to traditional chlorine. The price of salt is relatively cheap as opposed to regular chlorine and although a saltwater pool may sound more expensive to have, it will soon start to pay for itself in the long run. Especially since little salt is required to sustain the concentration every year.
