Your swimming pool should be clear enough to see a small object on the floor of the pool easily and with good clarity. When your pool is cloudy, it is because there is a build-up of particulates suspended in the water. In normal circumstances, your filter will capture these particles, and return particle-free, clear water back to the pool. However, this can be adversely affected due to a dirty/full or failing filter, or, insufficient turnover of water (how often the water in the pool passes through the filter). The root cause of the particulates in the water can be dirt/dust entering the pool water from the surrounding environment, or from microscopic algae that has started to grow due to improperly sanitised pool water. Similarly, poorly balanced pool water can inhibit the performance of the sanitiser, as well as alter the state of chemicals in the water from solution to solid, thereby affecting water clarity.

Using pool lights provides a myriad of benefits, including being able to use the pool at night, and with LED lights, you'll be able to change the colour at the press of a switch. However, some customers are unsure as to whether or not pool lights are safe - luckily, Sydney's Best Pool Service can help.
Pool lights, when installed correctly, are incredibly safe. In fact, modern, low voltage lights are considered virtually risk free. However, it is critical that your lights are installed according to manufacturer standards during your pool's construction, to ensure the grounds and fail-safes are configured correctly. If the installation is not appropriately completed, the lighting system may continue to function, but it can allow electricity from unrelated electrical failures to enter the pool, causing harm to any occupants. This risk is mitigated, however, when you employ a licensed electrician to ensure your pool lights are installed correctly. In fact, using pool lighting can help you monitor your children when they go swimming at night, ensuring your family is kept safe. When your pool lights are correctly installed, they provide a range of benefits to the safety and practicality of your swimming pool.
By using pool lights, you'll be able to safely use your pool at night, while adding a lovely splash of colour. If you'd like the professionals at Sydney's Best Pool Service to review your installation and ensure it is safe for you and your family, contact us on 1300 601 691
