Its not too late to book your pool make over. We can carry out an acid wash and jet wash then regrout your pool. In most cases this brings your pool back to as new. If your pool is a little older or is painted why not ask us to give you a quote to re-tile the whole pool. We can also add some steps with a hand rail to make getting in and out of your pool that bit easier. Something that is getting more popular all the time in our salt system with automated ph control. No more worrying about your water balance as the unit does it all for you http://www.poolschool.eu/pool-equipment/saliclor-chlorine-generator.html. Contact us now for all your pool needs. Whilst you are here,check out the work we have done recently on the facebook page.

Due to becoming increasingly busy poolside, our office will now be open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am-2pm. We are available anytime by phone.
Just to give some prior notice, we will be closing for Christmas on Friday 21st December at 2pm. The office itself will remain closed until February, although our poolside work will be unaffected. We will continue to be available for on site work, installations and repairs as normal throughout January.
If your pool is unheated and you want to close it down for the winter, by far the most economical approach is to 'winterize' the pool. This treatment is a cocktail of chemicals which will minimize winter maintenance and keep algae at bay - €39.00 for 5 Litres. See http://www.poolschool.eu/downloads/Winterising.pdf for 'how-to' info.
If there is any likelihood of frost protect your pool by floating some half-filled plastic bottles in the water. Then, if the water freezes and expands, the ice will crush the bottles, rather than the walls.
You may want to invest in a winter cover, to close off your pool completely. These covers are made from an extremely strong material which will last for many years. We can supply and fit these winter covers for €16 per square meter plus IVA.
Finally, you may not want to close your pool yet; you may want to consider heating it. It's more affordable than you think, and during December we have Heat pumps, pool-covers and winter covers on offer, see Special Offers below.
