4 important tips to keep you safe

Without getting too technical about pool chemicals, you would have heard words like: disinfectants, oxidising agents, stabilisers and sanitising agents, along with good old chlorine.

There are some chemicals that have the ability to react with each other with some pretty nasty effects including fire and explosions. These reactions can be spontaneous at either room temperature or with slight heating.

Some pool chemicals can also be corrosive to both metal and our body. The effect on human tissue and metals depends on the chemical and the concentration so we want you to be as safe as possible to enjoy your pool. Here are four important tips to keep you safe:

  1. Always read chemical labels

  2. Never mix chemicals, even if they are the same brand

  3. Always add chemicals to water... not the other way around

  4. NEVER smoke around pool chemicals.

The chemicals used in and around your pool are perfectly safe to use if they are stored in a well ventilated cool dry place in closed containers out of the reach of children (and pets) and when handled correctly with appropriate personal protective equipment (especially glasses and gloves). We want to help make sure there are no nasty accidents so you can enjoy your pool with minimal fuss. Take care when handling all chemicals and always wash your hands with plenty of fresh water when you have finished and please especially avoid contact with your skin and eyes.

Remember... if you are not 100% sure how to handle any of your pool chemicals see your local pool shop for all the correct advice. Stay safe.

Expert Tip: Make sure you have your resuscitation chart clear and visible in your pool area, not only in many parts of Australia it is a requirement, it can help you in a time of need to avoid panic and give lifesaving help.

I could not be more satisfied

I recently purchased a Daisy Pool Cover (400 micron UltraDome) from my pool shop in Shenton Park, and had it installed by your employee, Shane, on 23 Oct 2019.

I am pleased to let you know that I am very satisfied with my new Daisy pool cover, the purchase through my pool shop, and installation by your employee Shane.

As I have an irregular, kidney-shaped pool, it was recommended to me that I include Daisy’s professional pool cover installation service to ensure my cover was fitted correctly and provide trouble-free use. It was excellent advice. For a very reasonable fee, I believe it is a valuable service that you should promote more strongly.

My pool cover was installed by Shane who was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. I could not be more satisfied with Shane’s customer service; he is a credit to the Daisy Pool Cover and Rollers company and brand.
