"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    This week I want you to tell me what we "have to do" and what we "must do" to make our swimming pool a nicer place to swim in.

    My homework! ;)

    Making our swimming pool a nicer place to swim in:

    In my opinion, we must clean this swimming poll the right way. So, I suggest:

    First all, we have to wear some *PPE to protect us against physical or chemical accidents, it includes, goggles, gloves, mask, PVC or neoprene apron, waterproof overalls, boots, etc.

    Second, we have to take out that icky mattress (rs rs rs ^^ ).

    We must put in the pool some chemicals (chlorine, bromine) to treat the water, after that, with the right equipment, we must brush whole the pool, then vacuum and finally, circulation whole of the water.

    To make that work, we have to use some equipment:

    Telescopic Pole = can be extended to different lengths, we must use it to brushes, vacuum, etc.;

    Skimmer net = to collect debris that’s accumulated on and below the water’s surface;

    Manual pool vacuum = to take off the leaves in the bottom or robotic pool vacuum;

    Pool Brush = you can scrub your pool’s walls and floor, removing dirt, and detaching algae before it can really take hold and grow;

    We must invest in pool safety equipment as well:
    A lifesaver with a rope and Shepard’s hook.

    We must remember to put on Chlorine, bromine, and other chemicals in the pool to keep it clear to avoid algae.

    For safe, we must put a fence around the whole pool or a perimeter alarm - it will be useful when the pool is closed, but not in this case ... rs

    We must install a safety cover to put on the pool;

    *PPE may protect against physical, electrical, chemical, biohazard or airborne hazards, creating a barrier between the user and the hazard.

    Many thanks for that session, I loved it!
