      Pool cleaner

      Hi
      Just wondering if anyone knows of a good pool cleaning company. Our pool is always full of leaves and too much for us to manage, and would like someone to clean it on a regular basis for us.
      Thanks
      Michelle

      Personally, I hate my pool now the kids have grown up.

      Can't be bothered to use it in summer; turns into murky swamp water each winter.

      However, have you got a pool cover? That should keep most of the leaves etc out (a few get in, specially when I remove the cover). Then it's really just keeping on top of the stupid thing.

      Going back to your original question, maybe contact the Trading Post, O'Halloran Hill? I love that shop, they give excellent advice, and I am sure as they have people that go out to maintain pools.

      Their details are:

      Best pool shop ever!

      Totally agree with LC.
      I have had a property with a pool since 1989. They are a bottomless money pit and you may as well stand there and throw dollars into it!
      A pool was great when the children were younger.
      I have a pool at one of my rental homes and they are a lot of work. My Oh takes care of it but has told me to sell the house if anything happens to him!
      He has just sorted out a pool for friends of ours in Flagstaff. The pool cover is invaluable for winter and summer.
      What type of pool cleaner do you have? I have just lent out a refurbished Barracuda.
      If you get the PH right and scoop the leaves off the surface every day it should be blue all year round. We use a float with pool pills and then chlorine every 10 days or so.

      Thanks guys for the advise. I will call into the shop at O'Halloran Hill and hopefully they can help. We do have a pool cover however the leaves still manage to get in. We have a huge gum tree partly hanging over our fence from the house behind us. It drops branches, leaves and nuts on our side. We have one of the creepy crawles as well.
      it really does cost a fortune to maintain.
      Thanks
