HOW MIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE AFFECT YOUR POOL?

 

Climate Change Is Not Just Warmer!

 

Global climate change is contentious - and it's impacting everything.

 

That includes the water in our swimming pools. Rapid, and previously unexpected changes in the weather affect the water, and they affect the chemicals we have used to get the water balance just right.

Rough weather always pollutes the water in a swimming pool. This happens when storm water run-off gets into the pool - and that is just about always - and it brings with it all kinds of storm debris.

You can see the leaves and other vegetable matter, and perhaps even the dust that's washed into the pool. But you don't see the bacteria that are washed in and increase the load on your pool sanitation system. And you don't see the chemicals, like phosphates, that are being washed into the pool.

This all means that you now need to take a more careful approach to keeping your pool healthy.

Read on to discover what changes in your pool to look for that will be climate-change induced.
