Pump Up Your Pool "CRED"
2017/06/08

Winter is a good time to make minor renovations around the home and if you're a pool owner, a great project to take on is the renovation of your pool area. Starting sooner rather than later will ensure that by the time summer comes, your outdoor entertainment area will be the hottest spot on the block.

While the pool might be the showstopper in your backyard, pool pumps are not as attractive. This can be easily be solved by investing in some simple D.I.Y. Upcycle pallets by making a clever, lockable pool pump cover - not only will it hide the pump but it will serve as a storage space where smaller items, such as your pool chemicals, can be stored safely.

Landscaping, paving and tiling of a pool area are all important to consider as it not only needs to complement the other design elements of your garden, but it needs to be functional as well. Visit your local nursery to confirm which plants are best to plant around your pool area.  When choosing plants for your landscaping, don’t only consider how it will look aesthetically, but also if it’s safe for pets, sheds many leaves and requires constant maintenance.

The surface around your pool should be non-slip and look great - speak to a flooring expert at your local building supplier. Decking is often a great option as, with the proper wood treatment, it stays cool and easy to clean.

Don't Let Leaves Leave Their Mark
2017/06/07

Pool covers are a great way of ensuring that debris and leaves are kept out of the pool. If you have installed a pool cover, it is advisable to keep it clean and in pristine condition. Remove piles of leaves and debris to avoid build up on your pool cover. If not cleaned up regularly, you’ll end up with a mix of algae, which could easily run into your pool once you remove the cover.

Pool Of Knowledge
2017/06/07

Did you know, one of the biggest safety precautions to consider if you’re a pool owner is to install a pool fence? Thankfully the design of pool fences have come a long way from being an unsightly barrier that looked no different to burglar bars. While the design of pool fences have become more modern, the functionality remains the same. This makes the purchase of a pool fence one of the best investments a pool owner could make.

Easily fitted or removed and stored away by an adult, the Aqua-Fence restricts unauthorised access to the swimming pool area. Constructed using reinforced aluminium poles powder-coated in black, its slick and modern finish easily blends into most pool areas.

Repurposing Pool Noodles
2017/06/07

If you’re considering throwing away your faded pool noodles, don’t! Pool noodles can be repurposed as cheap and effective household hacks.

  • Cut them to the length of your boot and place it inside to ensure your boot maintains its original shape and doesn’t take on any storage folds.
  • Cut to desired length, cut half-way into the circumference and put it over the edge of the door as a doorstopper - protecting fingers or loud slams which could wake up a sleeping baby.
  • Cut the pool noodle down its length and silicone to your garage walls. This serves as a buffer, saving scratches to your paintwork or dents when you’re parking in a tight space or opening doors too widely.

Aqua-Bubble
2016/08/17

The Aqua-Bubble Solar blanket is a product designed to increase water temperature, extend the swimming season, stop evaporation, save on electricity and reduce chemical usage.

This locally manufactured Solar Blanket is made from 500-micron material and carries a 4 year reducing warranty.

The Aqua-Bubble Solar blanket has three main functions.

Firstly, UV light passing through the material warms the pool water directly below the cover.  Through circulation of the water by means of the pool filter system the warm water is circulated throughout the pool, raising the overall temperature of the pool. 

The second function of the Aqua-Bubble Solar Blanket is as an insulator.  During the cool evening or when it is windy, the Aqua-Bubble insulates the pool, preventing heat loss. It is possible to maintain a relatively constant water temperature over an extended time period.  The swimming season can be started one to two months earlier than usual and can be continued one to two months later into autumn.

The third function of the Aqua-Bubble Solar Blanket is to prevent evaporation. Cut to the inside shape of the pool, the Aqua-Bubble acts as a “lid” reducing evaporation by as much as 90%.

An Aqua-Net solar blanket is the ideal way to get maximum use from your pool while at the same time saving money and helping the environment by reducing electricity and water use.

 

There is no substitute for adult supervision.

Never leave a child unattended near water.

THERE CAN BE NO COMPROMISE ON POOL SAFETY.
2016/08/11

 

My son nearly drowned at the age of 3. We visited friends and they have a large swimming pool which is not covered. The children were playing around the pool, throwing toys into it and running up & down. We weren't really worried, as we knew that we were sitting very close to the pool. There we were, 4 adults sitting outside chatting specifically about drowning and pool safety. We carried on talking, when one of the adults shouted: “Oh my word! Jeadan is in the pool!”

 

I froze – I could not move. I saw everything in slow motion…the way he went under the water, coming up from underneath the water – gasping for air…then back under the water again. My husband reacted quickly and jumped into the pool and took him out. I ran closer and could see he was struggling to breathe as he must’ve swallowed a lot of water. My immediate reaction was to pat him on the back, and he started coughing up the water that he had swallowed. Only now after this do I understand how 69% of children who drown are under some sort of supervision at the time. This is how quickly it can happen.

 

Out of 4 adults present at the time, not one heard a splash. Out of 4 adults present only one noticed my child in the pool. He could so easily have drowned. I can only thank God for saving him – it could’ve been worse!

 

A child is a 100 times more likely to be killed by a swimming pool than by a loaded firearm. You would be horrified if you see a loaded firearm lying on a table in your house with kids playing around it? Why don’t you have the same reaction when you see an unprotected pool, since we know the pool is a much bigger threat?

 

Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in children under the age of five, third only to car accident and burns. A swimming pool is a wonderful way for a family to socialise and relax but there is always an inherent danger present. It is every pool owner’s responsibility to ensure that there swimming pool is safely secured to prevent accidents and there are many ways to go about securing a swimming pool: a safety net, a pool fence, a pool cover - any of these options is worth considering if it means that a child cannot gain access to the pool without adult supervision. Each option has its pros and cons.

 

Parental supervision is the most important step, but it can and does fail. No one can watch an active toddler every moment of every day. The annoying neighbor rings the doorbell to borrow milk (again), your burning dinner sets the fire alarm off, your seven year old runs inside with a bloody nose, you drop a frozen pork chop on your toe – distractions happen. It only takes minutes for your life to be turned upside down forever. The solution is to implement layers of protection. It is important to always remember that any safety product is only ever a back-up to adult supervision. A safety net or cover when in use offers the best levels of protection. When off the pool, users are generally aware and take greater steps to monitor and supervise children in their care.

 

The cover or net is replaced once the pool is vacated. Fencing offers a more constant security system but can result in a false sense of security. A child may access the pool area through an unlocked/open gate or climb over or under the fence. A layered approach to safety is key with the implementation of at least two safety measures to protect the pool. The more layers you have, the safer your pool area. Supervise, limit access to the pool area, cover the pool, swimming lessons, etc. All of these layers should be in place. If there is a lapse in supervision, for whatever reason, each layer must fail before a drowning can occur.


Always designate at least one adult as being responsible when children at play around an unprotected pool. If the person needs to leave his or her post, a physical hand-over/changing of the guard should take place. Have a Pool Safety hat, shirt, stick or whatever you prefer. This way there can be no confusion that Mom thinks Dad’s watching, Dad thinks Mom’s watching and nobody is actually watching as another child drowns.

 

A safety net or any pool cover can never be a substitute for adult supervision. It is there to provide a last line of safety should a child wander off unsupervised. It only takes seconds for a child to drown. Drowning is a silent killer.

 

In South Africa in 2012 Netcare reported that they attended to 218 drownings or near drownings. That statistic is from just one Emergency response operator. Childsafe, a NGO, reports that 326 children drown every year because an adult turned their back! The Medical Research council has released statistics that over 3000 people died from drowning in the past 5 years. More than one death by drowning every day of the year.

 

Take your child for professional swimming lessons at an early stage and take the time to learn CPR and accident procedures. If not your own child, you may be able to save someone else’s.

 

The suddenness of this type of accident and the results it yields is devastating. When you think pool safety, think hard core. Even if this is not your personality, you must be an absolute dictator.

 

Be the adult – supervise and establish a pool safety protocol in your home today!

How a pool cover can save you money
2016/08/04

HOW A POOL COVER CAN SAVE YOU MONEY 
by Andrew Reed

 

Adding a pool cover saves you electricity, chemicals, water and effort - And did I mention can increase your water temperature by 8°C.

 

If you have a swimming pool, one of the fastest ways to save money is by adding a pool cover to your open pool. It's a myth to think that pool covers are too expensive. Just the water savings alone will cover the cost of the pool cover. We recently did some cost estimates and I challenge you to do the same based on the water, electricity and chemicals costs in your area.

 

Let’s say you have a pool that is 8 meters by 5 meters and holds 50 000 litres with a 1kw pump costing you R2 every hour in electricity to run. Now let’s say you run it for 8 hours per day 365 days per year. That would cost you R5840 per year to run. If you could halve that cost you would save R2920 per year. Now think of the water savings, - If in summer you could reduce your evaporation by 80- 90% and only have to top up once every month rather than every five days, what would that save you? And if you could reduce chemical usage by half, that may save you another R100 per month. Environmentally you have done a great thing!

 

Adding a pool cover will catch most of the leaves and debris which means you need to clean your pool less and you need to have the filter running less (especially in the winter months when you are
not using the pool).

 

The pool cover also reduces direct sunlight thereby reducing algae build-up and therefore reducing your need for chemicals and extends the effectiveness of the chlorine in the water.

 

With up to 90% reduction in evaporation depending on what type of cover your choose, a pool cover reduces the amount of times you have to top-up the pool with water and therefore reduces your water bill considerably. Do you know how much water flows from your backyard hose per minute? Of course it will vary with local water pressure but on average, it can be around 15 litres per minute.So, how often do you top up your pool in summer and for how long?

 

As an example: 30minutes x 15 litres / minute x 6 (every 5 days/month) = 2700 litres per month.

 

Water is a precious resource that should be conserved at every opportunity. A pool cover can reduce monthly tops ups to just once a month which is a saving of 83% on water that is simply lost to evaporation every month.

 

However, with all this said, the best benefit to me is the increased water temperature of up to 8°C that not only makes my pool more luxurious but also extends the months that I can use the pool, making all the cost and effort worthwhile. Just imagine a pool that was once 20°C in summer now a delicious 28°C!

 

There are a number of different product choices you can make with regards to pool covers and these range from the Leaf Catcha, the Ultra Dome solar blanket, the Aqua-Guard cover and the multifunctional Solid Safety Cover. All the covers pay for themselves over their lifespans. You can view our range of covers on offer and what they look like.

 

In my experience with my own pool, a pool cover is the best investment I’ve made, protecting my child and the environment and saving me time and money.

SAFETY FIRST


Aqua-Net is a national company with branches throughout South Africa.  We cover the nation.  Our core product is the swimming pool safety net.  Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in children under the age of five, third only to car accident and burns.  A swimming pool is a wonderful way for a family to socialise and relax but there is always an inherent danger present.  It is every pool owner’s responsibility to ensure that there swimming pool is safely secured to prevent accidents. 

 

There are many ways to go about securing a swimming pool, a safety net, a pool fence, a pool cover.  Any of these options is worth considering if it means that a child cannot enter the pool without adult supervision.  Each option has its pros and cons.

 

The swimming pool safety net was first invented in Zimbabwe around 40 years ago.  Since then the safety net has saved countless lives.  It is a simple cost effective way to secure a swimming pool and does not detract from the aesthetic of the pool, still allowing a view of the pool water.  Aqua-Net first developed the central tension system and float which assists the user to fit and remove the net with minimal effort.  The Aqua-Net can be operated by one person and should not take more than 3 minutes to remove on an average size pool and no more than 5 minutes to replace.  It offers an exceptional degree of safety with zero reported drowning on an installed Aqua-Net in over 40 years.  The Aqua-net is a versatile option that can be custom fitted to any size or shape pool.  It is designed with an open mesh so that a crawling baby or toddler will be supported off the water on the netting should they fall into the pool and their arms and legs will become entrapped in the netting preventing forward movement on the net.  It is uncomfortable and will normally result in the child crying and alerting an adult’s attention.  A crawling baby will be suspended off the water.  As children age and get heavier and more mobile they may come into contact with the water but will be able to push themselves up and away from the water.

 

An Aqua-Net has an expected lifespan of 6 -8 years in the sun and we offer a three year no nonsense guarantee on our product.  It is the most cost effective way to go about securing a swimming pool with an excellent track record in drowning prevention.  Another option for securing a swimming pool is the solid safety cover.  This is a cover manufactured from pvc and supported in place by poles at regular intervals across the pool.  The solid safety cover uses minimal fittings and attachments and is ratcheted into place and kept under tension.  Designed to support the weight of two adults and a child it also helps keep the pool clean and free of leaves and debris, reduces water evaporation and chemical use.  The solid safety cover is not as versatile as the safety net and can only be used on certain pool shapes and sizes. The fitted cover is rather heavy and requires two people to fit and remove.  It does however provide a high degree of safety and there are less fittings and components on the paving surround. It offers more functionality in that it helps reduce maintenance and running costs. It is more expensive than a traditional safety net however with a one year guarantee and lifespan of 4- 5 years. The solid safety cover is another excellent way to secure a pool.

 

Aqua-Net also offer a removable fencing system as an alternative to a pool net or cover.  Pool fencing provides a means to secure the area that a pool is in rather than the pool itself.  The fence is made from a fibreglass mesh coated in pvc and is 1,2m high.  The fence is fitted using aluminium poles and a self closing lockable gate. Many people feel that a fence provides a higher degree of safety than a net, but many drownings happen in pools that are fenced. It is important to always remember that any safety product is a back up to adult supervision.

 

Over the past three years there has been much talk about the implementation of a bylaw in the City of Johannesburg that would see pool owners being required to net or cover or fence there pool.  A misconception arose nationally that this bylaw would roll out to the rest of the country.  At present the only safety requirement for any pool owner nationally is that their pool must be restricted from access by any member of the public.  This forms part of the national building regulations.  Some building inspectors, municipalities and housing estates have their own bylaws in place requiring more onerous levels of pool safety but this is the exception and not the norm. Two months ago the City of Jhb decided to withdraw their swimming pool safety bylaw.  In the interim work has been undertaken to develop an SABS standard for swimming pool safety nets and covers.  This new standard will incorporate the American ASTM specification as the benchmark for any swimming pool safety cover or net.  Any safety net or cover will need to be installed to a specific standard which will ensure that it offers the required levels of safety.  It is hoped that this new standard which is currently available for public comment will be incorporated into the national building regulations and referenced as part of the building of a swimming pool.  This will see more focus being placed on swimming pool safety nationally. 

 

An Aqua-Net or any pool cover is no substitute for adult supervision.  It is there to provide a last line of safety should a child wander off unsupervised.  It only takes seconds for a child to drown.  Drowning is a silent killer.  In South Africa in 2012 Netcare reported that they attended to 218 drownings or near drownings.  That statistic is from just one Emergency response operator.  Childsafe a NGO reports that 326 children drown every year because an adult turned their back!   The Medical Research council has released statistics that over 3000 people died from drowning in the past 5 years.  More than one death by drowning every day of the year.  Children drown every day. 

 

As operators in the swimming pool industry I believe that it is our responsibility to ensure that a message is conveyed to the public with regards to the risks that exist around owning a pool.  This does not have to be done in a way that will detract from your business dealings but in a way that will enhance your relationship with your customer out of concern for your customer and their children. If a pool is being built or maintained and a child is present in the home, I’m sure that you would agree the pool owner should be made aware of the risks and given options with regards to how the pool can best be secured.  This can be done as an additional service which is easily outsourced. 

 

Recently we saw an American advertising campaign where reference is made to pool ownership.

It said: “You wouldn’t leave a loaded gun lying on your table. So, why leave your pool uncovered?” 

Prevent drowning

Excerpt from the article:

 

Outdoors

 

Children should learn how to swim as soon as possible.

It's equally important for them to be trained in survival skills such as floating and treading water. But even then, constant supervision is always necessary.

A child should never swim alone. Children who cannot swim should stay away from places where they can drown. Remember buoyancy aids such as inflatable wings, tubes, etc., are only aids. Don't rely solely on their protection.

Warn against boisterous play in or near water. A dam wall or the area around a swimming pool is no place for riding a bicycle.

Children should practice coping in water with their clothes on.

Children should never dive or jump into water they are unacquainted with, or when people are in the way.

 

Swimming pools

 

Swimming pools must be properly fenced off and have a childproof lock on the gate. The gate must never be left open.

To protect a child fully, add a professionally installed pool safety net to cover your pool.

Even then, know where your child is. Is the neighbour's pool adequately fenced? And the gate always closed?

Remember to empty paddling pools when not in use.

Aqua-Net is proud to introduce to the South African pool owner, the Ultra Dome.  The 500 micron Ultra Dome, imported from Australia, offers the pool owner exceptional value for money due to its industry leading 7 year warranty.

 

The free floating  Ultra Dome is cut to the inside shape of a pool and will prevent water evaporation, reduce filtration time, reduce electricity usage and insulate the pool, providing excellent heating benefits.  Pool temperature from sun exposure alone will increase by up to 8 degrees.

 

The Ultra Dome was designed for the harsh Australian climate.  As such the bubble has been designed to withstand exposure to UV rays and also pool chemicals.  Having been tried and tested  down under, Aqua-Net is confident that the Ultra Dome will outperform  South African expectations.

 

The industry leading seven year warranty ensures that the pool owner can expect to recoup and surpass the initial cost of the blanket  on an average size pool.

 

Storage rollers are also available to make the process of fitting and removing the blanket as easy as possible.  The Ultra Dome can either be bought as a DIY or installed by Aqua-Net.
