We are always being asked which cleaning products are safe to use on a PVC or Aqualux Pool Finish – so we now have our own! Available at your local pool shop, or from your Aqualux installer, we offer the following products:
vinyl care & protect (1L) All natural and non-toxic, this unique formulation enables it to bind with grime, sunscreen and other oils to prevent build-up of these elements on a PVC membrane. Used regularly, you can prevent this build-up long term while providing your pool with superb water clarity and advanced filtration.
vinyl care & clean (500ml) Spray on and wipe gently with a soft sponge - this advanced formulation of Alkaline salts and cleaning agents removes grime, dirt, organic build-up and oils from the waterline of swimming pools and spas. Ideal for all PVC Membranes such as Aqualux pool finish.
Important: Never use microfibre or ‘magic sponges’ to rub a stain or mark - they are too abrasive and can damage the print.
Aqua Fingers pool mop This flexible frame attaches to most telescopic poles, and comes with a microfibre mop head featuring hundreds of 'fingers' to gently wipe a pool surface for a chemical-free clean. The Microfibre mop head unzips for easy removal for washing or replacement, and replacement mops are also available.
There are two options when repairing a tear or puncture in a pool liner. The quickest and easiest way is with a clear vinyl, self-adhesive patch, which simply applies like a big bandaid. These patches can be applied underwater, so there is no need to empty the pool either. They can also be used on a variety of other smooth PVC products such as inflatable pool toys and shade structures. Patches are sold in a pack of 4, and each patch is 76mm x 178mm. RRP is $22.15 per packet - ask at your pool shop.
The other option for repairing a hole in a pool liner is with a patch of the actual pool material. If you do not have any offcuts from when your pool liner was installed, you can purchase large patches of the material that are 500mm x 1300mm, from $19.40-$23.50 each. Instructions for repairing your liner are supplied, but you will need to purchase a suitable adhesive separately.
3 levels of adjustable height turn your pool into a Grecian Fountain! Adds elegance and flair to any swimming pool. Relaxing and soothing sounds of this pool fountain take you away as you lay poolside.
Just connect to any wall return or pool cleaner wall fitting, then push it out to the area you want it. The weighted base holds the position. Includes hose, weight and adapters to fit nearly any wall fitting. Our floating pool fountain is made from heavy thermoplastic and is designed to last for many years.
Pool cover floats are used to support the centre of soft spa covers and above ground pool Leafstop covers. The floats raise the centre of the cover up to 0.5m above the water level to create a peak, encouraging leaves and debris to fall off the cover, rather than pool in the middle.If more than one float is required, they can be joined with cord to keep them in place. To see how many floats are required for each size pool see our page on Leafstop covers.
This handy cable and winch system can be used instead of the standard Leafstop
bungee cord. Intended for long-term above ground pool closures, the cable and
winch system provides a much tighter fit.
To use the cable, remove the existing bungee cord, and thread the cable through the eyelets. Place over the pool, and tighten using the hand winch. Ideal for winter - ask at your pool shop.
While it sounds silly, a solar pool cover really does need a cover when it's rolled up on the reel. Made from a heat reflective white fabric, the 'over-cover' is supplied with all new Hydtrotools Reels. The over-cover should be used whenever the solar cover is rolled up on the reel - even if its only going to be off the pool for a couple of hours. Failure to use the over-cover is the number one cause of 'Roller Burn'. An over-cover is supplied with pre-fitted eyelets and cord to attach to the roller, and can be trimmed to size if required.
