Commissioning the swimming pool

The final job before you can start swimming is to  commission your swimming pool. This involves priming the pool pump to get it circulating and filtering water, backwashing the filter to get rid of any dirt and impurities in the filter sand and to settle the sand-bed, and give the pool an initial dose of pool chemicals to make the water safe and hygienic to swim in. If any dirt and debris from the construction works has found its way into the pool, this will need to be vacuumed out and flushed to waste, which can be achieved easily using the vacuum kit supplied with Summit Leisure DIY swimming pool kit. If you have installed a heating system, this will need to be commissioned too at the same time, though note that gas and oil heating systems must be commissioned by a suitably qualified person.

With your pool now commissioned and merrily heating away, all that’s left to do is don your favourite swimming costume and jump in! Happy Swimming!!
