    • Leaves and similar material should be removed daily.
    • Vacuum regularly to remove dirt, sand and debris.
  • Clean the skimmer and pump baskets regularly.
  • Ensure the water is properly treated, and contains the correct levels of chemicals.
  • Always follow the instructions on pool chlorine containers in relation to safe handling and disposal of the product.
  • Only a spa or swimming pool fitted with a filter and automatic chlorinator (including salt) is safe to use.
  • Keep the pool and spa surfaces in good condition. Repair any cracks in the shell and tiled surrounds.
