BioGuard’s Money Saving New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions; everyone makes them. Whether you’re saving money, spending time with the family, or speaking Portuguese – you’re looking at 2018 with resolve. And at BioGuard, we don’t do things by halves. In fact, when it comes to New Year’s Resolutions, we do things in threes!

Introducing, BioGuard’s Money Saving New Year’s Resolutions.

By following these simple 3-steps you’ll ensure a balanced pool and a balanced budget all year round.

BioGuard’s New Year’s Resolution #1: Money saving sanitation

Chemically balanced and sanitised water prevents scaling, corrosion, as well as unnecessary damage to pool equipment and allows sanitisers to work effectively; all things that cost a monster to fix. For 2018, make it your mission to sanitise your pool water with high quality chlorine, and your filter with BioGuard Filter Brite.

This great little product quickly and effectively removes a significant amount of grease, scale and oil from your filter. These are the contaminants that build up over time and use – sunscreen, sweat, and debris – that can’t be removed through backwashing or hosing filters.

But because all good things come in threes, if you are going to take on our Money Saving New Year’s Resolution, you won’t reap the benefits of a perfectly poised pool unless you undertake the following two resolutions.

BioGuard’s New Year’s Resolution #2: Now make it sparkle

If 2017 wasn’t as thrilling as you wanted it to be… Crank it up to 11 and pour some BioGuard Lite or Salt Pool Sparkle in your skimmer. Lite and Salt Pool Sparkle results in some exhilarating savings if applied responsibly. By raising the “free chlorine” level to a point where algae can’t form and bacteria are destroyed.

BioGuard’s New Year’s Resolution #3: Pure algae annihilation

It is the scourge of our swimming pools, the vile scum that rears its ugly head when you least expect it; algae is the bane of every pool lovers existence and it has no place in 2018. That’s why, if you’re taking on the BioGuard Money Saving New Year’s Resolutions, you’ll need to prevent the growth of algae by using a fresh or salt-water algaecide once a month; it’s no secret that returning an algae-ridden pool to normal is a pricey exercise.

Our Salt Pool Protector, MSA Extreme, or Polygard Concentrate are all excellent options.

So, why not use your favourite backyard investment as inspiration and employ BioGuard’s Money Saving New Year’s Resolution? With only three steps, our program is as easy as enjoying yourself on New Years Eve – and with all the money you’ll save – you can enjoy yourself even more next year.
