Swimming Pool Robot Cleaner? Dolphin models – How to choose between them?

Filed under: automatic pool cleaners — admin @ 1:30 PM

Deciding to purchase a robotic cleaner for your swimming pool means you are on the road to reducing your pool labour time significantly, furthermore the finer filters in these cleaners mean water clarity will improve too; this means reducing back-washing of the main pool filter.
A cleaner pool, with less particles in it means less ongoing investment in chemicals, water & importantly time.

‘I want one, but how do I go about choosing between the plethora of models?’ is a common question we are asked. (more…)

New Year, new work out regime? It won’t last – exercise whilst pool cleaning could…

Filed under: General,Seasonal Pool Maintenance — admin @ 11:04 AM

Every year in the UK we as a nation spend millions upon millions of hard earned pounds on fitness equipment that will in short order end-up in the garage, loft or on an auction website within months. Its hard to stick to a new fitness regime, especially one where the gains are hard to see & improvements so difficult to attain.

Spend Millions on equipment that will rarely be used? Why do we do this every year?

Spend Millions on equipment that will rarely be used? Why do we do this every year?

Often we are told that using the stairs & not the lift, or getting off of the bus one stop early makes all the difference; but we are busy, these methods take time out of our working day so sadly they are often hard to maintain.

One thing however you will notice is that your pool engineer is, like so many outdoor workers is probably quite physically fit.
This is no accident, the effort required to brush a pool wall & floor is really quite wearing. An hour spent brushing & vacuuming the pool will burn countless calories.

Whats more I tend to find that this is the sort of task where one’s mind is able to roam somewhat, some might even find the whole experience quite relaxing.
That said if your pool brush, hose or pole is past its prime, you could find yourself quickly becoming frustrated & like jogging or other fitness regimes throw in the towel too soon!

Cleaning your swimming pool needn’t be hard graft though, we have special brushes like the Sweep Ease with properties modelled on Formula 1 speed boats – these create extra downforce to scrub without ‘putting your back into it’.
We have underwater battery operated vacuums such as the multi award winning Pool Blaster that mount to your existing pool pole & pick everything up….

Sweep with ten times less effort than normal....

Grab a new brush, vacuum head, pole or hose via our website WWW.ASPECTSPOOLS.CO.UK or call 01895 672 515.

So what are the benefits:

  • Extra fresh air in your day
  • Improved muscular exercise
  • Improved calorie burn
  • Reduced financial costs as you may only need the pool engineer once a month or less
  • An improved insight into your pools operation & a greater appreciation for its every nook & cranny
  • An improved pool as nobody really cares about your water quality more than you, the pool user!

Studies have shown that your general wellbeing & state of mind may well be improved as a result of performing a task of this nature.

Of course there are always going to be times where you cannot get it done, a cleaning robot from as little as £349 are available, such as the Dolphin Hybrid which delivers amazing results…

For those who don't want to do ALL the work, a robot can help...

For those who don't want to do ALL the work, a robot can help...

So get fit, save money & improve your state of mind by simply brushing & vacuuming your pool.

Pool drownings – swimming pool alarms & cover systems = SAFETY

Filed under: General,Safety Covers — admin @ 9:42 AM

Today I read on Google News of a family’s devastation; a two year old in Arizona wandered off for moments & was tragically found beyond help in the pool. Despite best efforts she could not be revived.  Its heart wrenching & as a father of a child the same age I cannot begin to comprehend how they must feel but….

Not a month goes by where our industry press reports such tragedies. Yet systems exist to avoid just this occurrence & from as little as £399, mostly the French are the driving force behind them as they have strict laws stating that all pools must have at least an alarm but preferably a complete safety pool cover system. To this end they have the most stringent & exhaustive standards of compliance in the world – bar none! (more…)
