The Bahamas has an abundance of swimming pools throughout our archipelago. Blue skies are reflected in the still, clear waters, which are diligently chlorinated and cleaned by the pool owners or their staff. Who can resist jumping in to cool off on a really hot day? But Gavin Knowles, the owner operator of long standing Saline Pools, warns your pool may not be safe to swim in.
He says: “You might chlorinate and clean your pool regularly, but did you know, as confirmed by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that waterborne diseases can result from infected pool water? – Diseases like Gastroenteritis, Dysentery, Amoebic dysentery, Cholera, Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Giardiasis, Cryptosporidiosis, Salmonellosis, Shigellosis and Dermatitis.”
To ensure that swimming pools are problem free, Knowles has started a new swimming pool consultancy service called POOL SOLUTIONS, now available on New Providence. Knowles says: “I know that swimming pools can be problematic, so I launched my new consultancy service Pool Solutions in addition to Saline Pools to address this need.”
He says Pool Solutions provides fast and effective solutions to any swimming pool problem, any type pool, whether saline or regular tablet run pool, anywhere on New Providence, whereas Knowles’ existing business Saline Pools specializes in the installation and maintenance of saline systems, generally just in the western district of New Providence because of time constraints.
Knowles says: “Saline Pools provides a service to saline run pools, but I have had so many calls from owners of tablet run pools as well that I felt I needed to help those pool owners too. I decided the best way I could do this was to provide a pool consultancy service, so I set up my new business Pool Solutions in addition to Saline Pools.”
Knowles has an in-depth knowledge of pool water chemistry which is the most important part of keeping your pool sparkling, clear and safe to swim in.
Pool Solutions offers consultancy only for $85 – $150 per hour, depending on travel distance. This includes testing water levels, checking equipment and delivering a report, along with recommendations or course of actions to be taken.
