Welcome to The Pool Team’s information pages. In these pages you can find information on the best ways of maintaining your swimming pool. While we strive to be impartial to different suppliers and brands of equipment, our goal is to provide you with the best quality tools, which we have chosen based on years of professional and personal experience with such products. Many of the tools involved in pool maintenance including pool pumps, underwater lights and certain pool heaters, carry live voltage; contact with live electricity can result in permanent damage and even death. Pool heaters emit carbon monoxide, which can be lethal if you are exposed to it or breathe it in. For these reasons it is very important that you do not attempt to fix your own pool equipment. Rather contact an expert at The Pool Team who has experience and knows the proper techniques for fixing your equipment. Please use care and caution with pool chemicals. Poisonous and deadly gases are emitted from the chemicals themselves and during reactions with other chemicals, including water. Contact, as well as inhalation or ingestion, with these chemicals will result in burns, extreme illness and possibly death.


Please keep safe during these worring times. For more helpful information, please download the below.
