Top 6 Questions to Ask Your Pool Builder!

4 July 2021

At Theralux, we know the benefits of a mineral pool, and we want you and your family to experience pool water at its best. New pool owners should insist on a system that creates crystal-clear, fresh-tasting, hygienic water, that will significantly lower your maintenance costs and increase the lifespan of your pool.

When you’re working with your pool builder to install your new pool, it’s really important you’re across the features of the sanitation system they plan on installing. To help you make the right choice, here are our top 6 questions to ask your builder about the sanitation system for your pool.

Does my sanitation system create health and wellbeing benefits for swimmers?

If the answer to this one is “No” or “Not sure”, then consider what kind of water you want your family swimming in. Mineral pools are topping the charts with bather health and comfort, and while they have marginally larger upfront costs compared to traditional pools, having a mineral oasis in your backyard is really something that outweighs any advantages of going traditional.

A Theralux sanitation system offers a wide range of health and wellbeing benefits for you and your family. The water nourishes the hair and skin as you swim, and the magnesium in our unique formula of Essential Earth Minerals can help relievebody aches and pains, making for a rejuvenating swim.

Are there multiple brands involved in my sanitation system?

You can have multiple brands of equipment that makes up the entire pool filter system, but we don’t recommend it – it makes after sales services overly complicated, and the costs can blow out. Whichever brand you decide on, try to keep it as part of a package. At Theralux, we offer complete mineral pool systems which means if you ever have any queries about the running of your pool, one of our experienced Theralux Lifetime Poolcare technicians can fix everything.

What secondary/dual sanitation device does the sanitation system have?

This one might sound a bit technical, but it’s really important to understand the benefits of what a secondary/dual system offers. While it’s true that you can always alter your sanitation system at a later date, it makes the most sense to install a premium product at the outset as it will save you time and money down the track.

There are a variety of secondary sanitation systems available, such as the UV, Ozone and AOP. We’ve tried and tested all systems over the years and recommend Quantum Purity (AOP), which provides you with the most natural and hygienic water, that is easy to maintain.

Can I automate my sanitation system ? 

Gone are the days of having to manually adjust your pool pump or temperature levels When you’re investing so much time and money into a pool, you want to make sure the sanitation system is easy and convenient to control. There are a few different automation products available these days – some are complicated and clunky, while others are meticulously designed for convenience and ease.

At Theralux, we offer a complete Automation system that is as sleek as it is effective, meaning you can easily control your pool from your smart phone, wherever you are. Before you commit to a pool automation system, make sure you ask your builder if they have an example of the app on their phone, so you can see how it works.

How much will it cost to maintain my pool with the sanitation system?

You’ll have your pool for a long time, so it’s important to know what you’re up for in terms of ongoing maintenance costs. There are lots of different mineral blends available, and if your builder tells you it will cost hundreds or thousands of dollars a year to maintain your mineral pool, then buyer beware!

If you choose a brand such as Theralux, that knows how to blend their minerals for optimum performance, then minerals for your average size swimming pool should cost no more than $200 per year.

What after care service is supported?

The right sanitation system will be backed with the right customer support. When you’re chatting with your builder about this, listen for things like ‘Lifetime Poolcare or Support’ where you are assured of ongoing assistance if required with direct access to water chemistry experts and pool technicians.

At Theralux, we are a team of highly-experienced pool sanitation experts, who’ve been in the business for over 40 years. When you go with Theralux, you’ll have access to ongoing support for the lifetime of your pool.
