Anthony from Jim’s Pool Care Mount Gravatt was called out to this one. It was not disclosed how long the pool was in this state, but we can guess it was quite a long time due to the amount of leaves that were at the bottom of the pool. When leaves are left this long, they will turn the water completely dark and it won’t be long until you cannot see the bottom anymore, due to the amount of dead particles floating around the water.
Here is what Anthony had to say about the job: ‘This pool suffered major neglect and what’s worse is that the area is very leafy and had major foliage on the pool floor. If the pool were not fiberglass, I would have drained it and cleaned it. Even when the water cleared, so that I could see the bottom, there was 12 cm of dead floc to vacuum. Definitely the worst pool I’ve ever recovered but I don’t give up! Now the customer has a new appreciation of maintenance!’
‘The pool responded poorly and the flocculant wasn’t successful so I tried a different approach and used Alum Salts. Pool responded a lot better and with a clarifier and a lot of filtering cleared right up and was able to be vacuumed to waste. Chemicals then added to balance pool and the results speak for themselves!’
This result truly is amazing, it doesn’t look like the same backyard! It is inspiring to see just how much a difference a pool can make to the overall appearance of a backyard. A great reminder to keep your pool chemicals checked and balanced often, not just for health and safety, but also to keep your backyard looking like a resort, a place to relax and let go of the stresses of the day.
