    So, after a week lying at the beach reality kicks in and your own responsibilities become priorities again. No more beautiful blue sea to look at, nice green mould around the perimeter of the pool is what I now get. I thought I would be smart and try Blue 52 instead of HTH - a lovely slippery surface appeared and I realised I now had a problem and would have to stop doctoring it myself. Off to Moya at The Pool Place. That lady knows exactly what she is talking about. Honestly, her knowledge is amazing. I now have a sparkling pool and everyone is happy again.

    Although I had managed to 'keep out of the green' for almost a year, with the current extreme weather - crazy heat, storms, and lightning - much to my chagrin, my pool recently lapsed into persistent green murk ! I tried using my trusty test strips as a guide and doctoring on my own, changing the filter sand, and diligent frequent backwashing, all to no avail. So, under pressure from my better half, popped into The Pool Place with a sample, and after (free) analysis, was prescribed a 'fix' routine, together with a cocktail of chemicals. Whilst the cost was a bit of a kicker, a lot of stuff was needed, and prices are kept to 'Hypermarket' levels by using "AfriChem" products - just as good, if not better than the well known brands ? I duly followed the treatment routine, including 'extra strength algeacide 'to meet the promise to 'have my pool back before Christmas'. Well, within the space of 12 hours, the pool was much improved, within 18 hours COMPLETELY CLEAR !. Once again, hugely impressed by The Pool Place ! Thanks guys !!!

    I dont think we would even think of another place to go to when we have pool problems. The owner is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Our pool was losing water so out they came, dug up where the leak was, fixed it and left. Terrific service. When we need Kreepy Krauly pipes, we go here. For pool chemicals etc. Great service!!

    This may seem an off review as I currently don't have a pool, but when I move into a house with a pool, this will be the place I go for all my pool needs! My folks have been making use of The Pool Place's services for years and years and they are never disappointed. I think the lady who owns the place/works there is Moira and she does such an excellent job. I would definitely recommend them!

    Having experienced an initial (but unfortunately ineffective) diagnosis and treatment regimen (chemicals and process) from another shop, of the condition of my pool several weeks ago now, after having reverted to 'Fish Pond' mode after my pump motor broke, I decided to again try "The Pool Place" at the recommendation of a friend with a similar 'biggie - 90 000 litre' pool to my own. My water sample was swiftly checked, and a 'Recipe' of both procedures as well as 'muti' (chemicals 'n things), prescribed on a friendly simple 'recipe' sheet. (This was done whilst chatting to the many 'regulars' that frequent this store - ladies are definitely better able to multi-task in this way !). The chemical cost was reasonable, made so by avoiding the huge brands (eg HTH). I administered the 'medicine' in terms of the process recommended, and within a reasonable time, as well as the essential time and effort by myself, the pool started to recover, and has since gone on to the point of former glory. (Yours truly strutts proudly around the edge of the sparkling patch of water every morning, and tends to the daily maintenance nuances). The Pool Place (run very well by mom and daughter) is my highly recommended pool place in the Northwest ! Thanks Ladies !
