Tips For Cleaning Sydney Pools
Pools are a big part of Sydney life. They’re where locals cool off in summer, exercise and get some quality family time. With our great climate, pools are popular in backyards all over the city, too. Before investing in a backyard pool, however, you should know the laws and regulations that govern their construction. If you’re planning to hire a sidney pool builder, it’s important to find one who is licenced. This will ensure that they are operating legally and abide by the rules and regulations set by NSW Fair Trading. You should also ask potential pool builders for references and a list of past clients.
Swimming pools are a great way to stay active and enjoy the beautiful Sydney weather all year round. They can be used for recreational and therapeutic purposes, as well as for training and rehabilitation. However, if you’re planning to install a pool in your home, you should know that it will require regular maintenance and cleaning. This can be time consuming, but it’s necessary for the safety and cleanliness of your pool. To help you save time and keep your pool looking its best, here are a few tips for keeping your sidney swimming pool clean:
The smell of chlorine, water bombing, mixing of cultures – these are some of the reminiscences shared by 28 Australians in the recent book The Memory Pool. The Venice Biennale exhibition installed at the NGV, and the accompanying voices captured in the companion book, very successfully evoke Australia’s connection to the pool. Pools are not just historical, designed and artificial sites of public leisure; they are spaces full of individual memories and shared social significance.
A visit to the historic Fig Tree baths in Sydney provides another reminder of this country’s relationship to the swimming pool. It was here that Australia’s first official competitive swimming events took place in the 1800s, including an open race over 402 metres (440 yd) and a women’s event.
While the Fig Tree baths have long been heritage-listed, they are in poor condition and the redevelopment of this landmark pool is in doubt. A redevelopment plan that was approved by council last year has been hit with a $10 million funding shortfall. It emerged a few weeks ago that the funding for this shortfall came from the Female Facilities and Water Safety stream of the Government’s grant programs.
The Royal Lifesaving Society NSW is calling for both major parties to make pre-election commitments to build new swimming pools in Sydney’s growth areas. It says access to these pools is critical in a region where 35 per cent of people are either non or poor swimmers, and where drowning rates remain high. It also says the community cannot afford to wait for the Government to deliver this crucial infrastructure.
