Cool Pool? Warm it up & Swim Longer

As the cool weather approaches many Gold Coast pool owners are still wanting to swim in their backyard pools and, with the beautiful weather we’ve been experiencing, why not look at ways to extend the swimming season into the cooler months.

By installing a heating solution now pool owners can continue to enjoy their pools into the cooler months. A correctly installed pool cover can make your pool up to eight degrees warmer, while solar, gas or electric heat pumps can extend your swimming season by up to four months.

Pool Doctor’s range of Heat Pumps are the affordable, energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly way to heat your pool so you can swim all winter long. Find out more about pool heating you can afford to run all year, click here.

Solar blankets are also an inexpensive solution. They help stop evaporation reducing chemical usage and saving pool owners money.

As the season comes to an end, its also important pool owners don’t become complacent about pool health and safety.

To maintain good water quality, bring a sample of your water to Pool Doctor or call one of our mobile technicians for a service. Keep your pool equipment running for a minimum of 4-6 hours each day. Make sure your swimming pool fence and gate are compliant with new state legislation and, display a current CPR sign in the pool area.
