Aftercare & Maintenance Guide

Now that you are a pool owner, it is a good idea to make a regular maintenance program.



  • Test pH and chlorine levels to ensure water is safe to swim in.
  • Clean your skimmer basket and pump basket if necessary.
  • If the “o” ring is dry use a silicone based lubricant. Give the pool surface a brush.
  • Check that the water level is high enough.
  • Check the filter pressure gauge and clean or backwash if necessary



Do everything you would do on your weekly maintenance and also do the following

  • Visit your pool shop and get the Total Alkalinity, Stabiliser, Calcium or Total Hardness, Salt or mineral levels checked. Adjust if necessary.
  • Check that the salt cell and sensor do not require cleaning. Clean if necessary using Salt Cell Cleaner.



  • Clean the filter chemically using filter cleaner and degreaser. The exception to this is a pool that is operating Viron Active glass as this will not require cleaning.

It is important to get into a regular maintenance routine to make your pool ownership easy and trouble free. Blue Haven Care offers a range of easy to use weekly and monthly products that assist pool owners in reducing maintenance time and excess chemical usage. Care is designed to utilise natural products where possible and to minimise consumer contact with chemicals by making them in “no touch” pods.


Algae formation

This is due to either the incorrect level of sanitiser, poor circulation or lack of maintenance. It is important to try and determine the cause of the algae so you can prevent it returning. Algae comes in various forms, such as Green, Mustard or Black. It is important to seek the advice of your professional pool shop to determine the correct treatment.

Cloudy water

This can be due to inadequate sanitiser levels, inadequate filtration time or algae formation. Again, it is important to seek the advice of a professional pool shop to determine the correct product to fix the issue.

Low sanitiser levels

This can be due to inadequate filtration time, excess bather load, animals in the pool, high levels of phosphates or environmental conditions. Various treatments are available to prevent this from occurring.
