Water Care Simplified

Water Care Simplified.

We are pleased to introduce to you our new Gib-San Heritage brand of water care products for swimming pools and hot tubs. Gib-San Heritage Chemicals have different colour-coded flowers on their labels for each chemical category so you can find them easier on the store shelf and in your storage shed. This list describes what each category does for your pool water maintenance.

Sanitizers (Pink)

By continually killing bacteria, a sanitizer keeps the water clean and safe for swimmers. This important role makes the sanitizer the most critical product in pool care. Sanitizing is the first step in the weekly pool maintenance program.

Oxidizers (Orange)

Oxidizing is the second step in the weekly maintenance of a pool. Oxidizers “shock” the water and chemically destroy the organic contamination introduced by bathers and the environment. Shocking improves and extends the life of the available sanitizer (chlorine, bromine), keeping the water clear and sparkling.

Algaecides (Blue)

Algaecide application is the third step in weekly maintenance programs. Algae are microscopic plants that grow in or around water and can be a very troublesome aspect of pool maintenance. The cost to remove algae can be significant. Prevention is by far the best way to fight algae.

Balancers (Yellow)

Balancers are essential to an effective pool maintenance program. By maintaining your pool’s alkalinity, pH and calcium you can protect your pool, the equipment and keep your sanitizer working effectively.

Water Enhancers (Purple)

Enhancer products help clear cloudy water and restore the sparkle to your pool water. Enhancers will also help your filter work more efficiently by acting as a coagulant to bind tiny particles together so they are easier for your filter to remove. Borates improve swimmer comfort and help maintain chemical effectiveness.

Cleaners (Green)

Cleaners remove scale, hard water deposits, scum lines and stains and extend the life of pool liners, covers, and filters. Put cleaning on your routine maintenance list and you will improve the appearance of your pool and equipment while extending its life.

MANAGER’S MESSAGE

Summer fun = Swimming pool!

Having a swimming pool outside your back door … How good is that!!

At Gib-San we are committed to helping you have more fun in your backyard. Keeping your pool water properly balanced is the best way to avoid problems. We provide Free professional water testing for our chemical clients. Doing this every three or four weeks is a good idea, with frequent home testing using Gib-San 7-in-1 Test Strips in between.

Weekly shocking with Gib-San Crystal Clear Shock will reactivate the chlorine in your pool that is chemically locked up with chloramines to provide much more active sanitation.

Filter cleaning either by weekly backwashing a sand filter, or monthly cleaning of cartridge filters using Gib-San Filter Cleaner is important to avoid cloudy water as well as maintain a better water flow for water features such as sheer descent waterfalls.

Automatic pool cleaners will simplify your pool maintenance. They even climb the walls. Some operate on the water suction through the skimmer whereas others are self contained Robotic Cleaners that are programmed to do a complete job. Ask about our Demo Trial Program whereby you take a Robotic cleaner home for a day to try it out.

We have everything you need to operate your pool or hot tub and much more such as toys, floats, goggles and towels.

How can we help you enjoy your pool more? We are open 7 days a week in June and July to service your pool needs. Please Email me if you have specific needs … derrick@gsplc.ca.

We hope you and your family have a great summer in your pool.
