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

Spring at last!!!

Opening a pool in the spring is like awakening the backyard after a long winter’s nap.  The yard misses that extra sparkle from a pool. 

This is a good time to check your equipment and replace aging equipment to avoid breakdowns in the peak of swimming season, and costly hydro operation costs.  New variable speed pumps can save you up to 80% of your old pump hydro bill.  Also you are most likely eligible for a $400 rebate from your local participating hydro if we install it. 

Come in and take advantage of our Spring Sales Events special prices.  We are a full service company for both Pools and Hot Tubs and are open year round to support you.  We have accessories for your backyard entertaining and enjoyment and toys for kids of all ages.  

Bring your water in for professional testing.  Run the pump for a couple of days to circulate the pool water first.  The tests will advise you what to do to balance the water chemistry for alkalinity, pH and calcium.  Our Opening Kit has chemicals for a pool up to 80,000L. It contains Super Chlor, a powerful sanitizer to oxidize the winter’s organic contaminants and establish enough chlorine to start the season.  Cover Clean in addition to being a great cover cleaner, ensures it doesn’t grow anything later even if the cover is put away a little wet.  That gets you started.   Our staff will help you meet other spring start up needs from filter cleaners,  cell cleaners to wall cleaners. 

We will help you with the right products to simplify your pool maintenance --- right down to a Robot Cleaner to look after the vacuuming.  We look forward to seeing you soon with your water sample.
