Swimming Pool AND Spa Safety Signs

>Use a qualified tree trimmer to do any pruning or perform other work in areas where limbs or vegetation are growing in and around overhead lines and other electrical facilities.

>If a power line falls on your car, stay inside and wait for rescue crews. In the event of a fire, jump clear from the car without touching the car and the ground at the same time; then shuffle away, keeping both feet on the ground at the same time, and taking care not to contact any wires or touch any object near the site of the accident.

>In placing holiday or other temporary lights outside, use only lights & cords rated for outdoor use. Using indoor lighting strands or an indoor extension cord outdoors can result in an electric shock or fire hazard. Check the cord's label to see if it is intended for outdoor use.

>Swimming pool motors and filters must be properly grounded. Having them installed only by a licensed, professional electrician and checked regularly will help ensure safety. Remember; NEVER build a swimming pool, shed or any other structure beneath a power line or anywhere on a utility right-of-way, including the line that leads to your home or building.">Outdoors Electrical Safety<br /><br />>Fallen wires can still be energized and dangerous. Stay away, and keep others away.<br /><br />>Teach children the essentials of electric safety, and warn them to stay away from transmission towers, utility poles, substations, and fallen wires. Watch for electric lines near trees where children may climb, and teach children not to fly kites or model planes near electric lines or power facilities. Children should also be told to leave electric meters alone, and should not play near them.<br /><br />>When using ladders or poles, be aware of overhead electric lines, including the line that leads to the house. Even a wooden ladder can conduct electricity with fatal results. Be very careful if there are electric lines above or near a swimming pool and you are working with long-handled tools.<br /><br />>Never use electric power tools in the rain or when the ground is wet, and keep radios and televisions away from swimming pools, spas and running hoses.<br /><br />>Use only lights and cords rated for outdoor use, including decorative and holiday lights, and never put staples or nails through electric cords. A three-wire, waterproof cord should be used for power tools and outdoor work. Also, if using electric gutter heaters in the winter, be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.<br /><br />>Plug outdoor appliances into outlets with a

Want to know what to look for when buying a second hand spa?<br /><br />Here is a handy list of items to check:<br /><br />How to buy a spa pool.<br /><br />You have been dreaming about a spa pool and you realise there are four ways to get one.<br /><br />1. You can buy a new spa pool which is beautiful and gives you the peace of mind with up to date features and warranties etc.<br />2. You can buy a second hand spa pool which you know has more danger involved but you can save a few dollars in the short term.<br />3. You can win a new spa pool from us here on Facebook: http://bit.ly/10j36jH<br />4. Lastly your Fairy Godmother may leave one on the patio for you.<br /><br />Since option three is a sweepstakes and option four is the stuff of fairy tales we will stick with option one and two and more specifically look at purchasing a second hand spa pool.<br /><br />To find a second hand spa pool, you only have to look to the nearest auction site. Although some good deals can be found and money saved, there are some key points to be aware of when shopping for a used spa pool and in the end it can be difficult to determine if you are purchasing someone else's problem.<br /><br />The spa pool shell<br /><br />One of the most critical parts of spas is the shell and you can read more about the different methods of spa shell construction here. Every part of the spa can be repaired or replaced except the shell. End up with a blistered or cracked shell and what seemed like a great deal turns out to be a serious money pit.<br /><br />Keep in mind this is no different when buying a new spa pool. There are only a few manufacturers who have the required equipment to build a spa pool shell with a ten year guarantee and you will want to make sure the shell of your spa pool is built using the best methods available and you can usually tell that if it is backed by a great guarantee. 10 Years is recommended.<br /><br />With a second hand spa pool it is a great idea to see the spa empty so that you can look for any blisters, cracks or other damage in the spa shell. If the shell has faded it most likely has been sitting empty in the sun without a cover. This fades the acrylic and can cause cracking. If you see this you may want to step away from the deal.<br /><br />Spa pool pumps<br /><br />Spas have one or multiple pumps and the pumps life can be shortened if the spa water was not balanced correctly resulting in a defective seal or a motor with moisture damage or corrosion. Spa pump prices range from a few hundred dollars to well over a thousand. Keep in mind this does not include labour if you require a technician.<br /><br />Although we suggest viewing a used spa pool while empty so you can examine the shell, it is also important to have the spa filled at some stage before you make your decision so that that you can hear the pumps run to make sure they are not at the end of their life.<br /><br />If they sound noisy at all you may want to walk away, if not run. Any sign of corrosion or a white calcium build up under or near the pumps may indicate a leak in the pump's seal. At the very least this will cost over $100 if you change the seal yourself and more if you need to call a tech. http://spastore.com.au/spa-pool-pumps/<br /><br />Spa pool plumbing<br /><br />Make sure to inspect the underside of the spa with it filled so that you can notice any signs of a leak. With a full foam insulated spa it may be hard to see a leak so look for any moisture. If there are any signs of moisture run away. Trying to find and fix a leak on a full foam spa is like going coal mining as you dig through the foam.<br /><br />Spa pool heaters<br /><br />A big part of the dream of owning spas is the thought of sliding into that hot bubbling water so you want make sure that the heater is going to work. Like the spa pumps, a spa heater's life span can be significantly reduced by poor water balance. Newer spas have high tech coatings on the heater elements that lengthen the life of the spa heater element but many older spas did not have this coating. http://spastore.com.au/spa-pool-heaters/<br /><br />Spa pool keypads and controls<br /><br />Spa keypads are packed with electronics and get a good deal of use. Most quality new spas come with robust gel filled keypads that will provide years of service. But older spas do not have the same technology making the keypads one of the most common items to fail. http://spastore.com.au/spa-pool-controller-parts/<br /><br />Spa pool controllers used on new spa pools have many more features to make your in sp experience that much better but they also have features that increase energy efficiency.<br /><br />Spa pool blowers<br /><br />Many old spa pools have blowers where as newer spa pools use air venturi jets. Spa pool blowers are fans that pump compressed air into the spa. Spa blowers are not as susceptible to poor water balance and corrosion as spa pool pumps and heaters but they do have a life span and are usually damaged when the check valve protecting them from water fails allowing water to enter the fan. http://spastore.com.au/spa-pool-blowers/<br /><br />Spa pool hardcover<br /><br />A poor fitting or waterlogged spa hardcover can result in the loss of up to 75% of the heat in spas. Additionally a good fitting hardcover will keep debris from the spa requiring less chemical use. Of course a strong lockable hardcover also provides safety for children. Spa hardcover prices can be found here. http://spastore.com.au/spa-pool-covers/<br /><br />Spa pool energy efficiency<br /><br />Almost every component found on new spa pools has evolved over the last few years as new technology has come into the spa manufacturing process. Each of these individual evolutionary gains has helped with the spa pool running efficiency making new spas more efficient to run than they have been historically.<br /><br />you can find out what a new spa pool would cost for you to run here: http://www.spaworld.com.au/allaboutspas/calculateyourrunningcost.aspx<br /><br />Spa pool prices<br /><br />Some of the prices for used spas and even off brand new spas seem very reasonable but for nearly the same price quality brand spas with full warranties backed by a reputable company can be purchased at or near the same price. See spa and swim spa prices here: http://www.spaworld.com.au/spasswimspas.aspx<br /><br /><br /><br />Have you bought a second hand spa pool? If so how has your experience been?
