CLEANING A POOL IN A BUSHFIRE AFFECTED AREA
In the first instance, home owners should take a water sample to their local licensed pool shop / pool professional so it can be tested. If that is not possible, then we would suggest the following:
Following any bushfire there is always debris, ash and environmental impurities left in the water. These impurities throw off the chemical balance in swimming pools and will cause pools to either go green or cloudy. It is important to first remove as much debris and ash from the swimming pool water and make sure all skimmer and pump baskets are clean.
