We don’t only specialise in swimming pool chemicals and commercial pools you know. In fact JAK have so many other products for your home and garden. Have you ever been to next door’s BBQ and seen some stunning garden lights, or looked over the fence to see a giant garden pouf to lounge around on this summer? Us neither, but never fear, your garden full of our lights and garden furniture can now be the talk of the street!

We have our stunning lights with an EU plug, which are rechargeable and completely waterproof with a remote! Perfect to give that little bit extra to the garden when the sun goes down, and also what gadget guy doesn’t love a remote?!

Coming in numerous different styles and designs, this is sure to be one that fits your taste and needs. Having 2 different chargeable capabilities, the Pro Lite lasts up to 20 hours once fully charged. Whereas the EZ Lite lasts up to 10 hours once fully charged. All lights are cordless and can be moved around the house and garden to fit in with your needs.

So what about during the day when you want to lounge around in the garden? Simple, you want to look at our Pouf’s. Air Concept Outdoor collection of pouf and chairs can be inflated and deflated according to your needs or season. The inflatable structure is weighted down with the water filled reservoir, which prevents it from blowing away in the wind or bad weather. Its fabric cover has been treated to protect it from sunlight, chlorine, humidity and mould. To create an original atmosphere, the pouf’s luminious braid lights up at night. When winter comes, simply deflate the Air Concept Outdoor pouf, which can then be folded and neatly stored away. What more could you possibly ask for from your garden pouf.

Our poufs are available in 3 different sizes. XXL, perfect for laying and reading on. 55cm, ideal for little bottoms whilst having a picnic in the garden or as an extra perch. Finally the 75cm pouf is just what you need for an extra seat in the garden, and with the bright covers available they can add that little bit extra to your garden.

Now that summer is finally here, our Facebook pages, Instagrams feeds and inboxes are full of family and friends sharing their pool and spa pictures. But did you know that using specialised swimming pool chemicals is actually really important this season. Not only does it ensure that your water is clean and safe but it can also save you money!

Don’t get me wrong, the whole swimming pool chemical thing can be quite daunting, but it really doesn’t need to be. Don’t fall into the trap of getting confused and buying the wrong chemicals or countless products that you just don’t need! There is dosing your pool, and then there is overdosing, and we don’t want that!

In general there are three rules of thumb, manage the pH and chlorine level of the water and test regularly, that’s it!

Here is my simple guide to make sure you have a safe summer with your pool chemicals.

  1. Work out how much water you have!

All chemicals products should state how much to use in the volume of water that you have, so knowing the amount of water is super important! If you are unsure you can pop over to our pool volume calculator, or work it out yourself; for instance in a rectangular pool the equation is: – Height of the pool x length of the pool x depth of water, for example 269cm x 175cm x 51cm = 2.40 m3. 1m3 is the same as 1000 litres.

  1. What product is best for you?

Now you know your volume of water, you need to ensure that you find the right product for you. As I mentioned earlier, you need to make sure you get this bit spot on; otherwise you will not get the best out of your pool or spa! With our example volume of water, we would be looking at the Pool Power Mini Quick product. Mini Quicks are designed to dose small pools and spas.

For larger pool volumes above 20m3 you would need to look at our bigger chlorine tablets or granules.

  1. Will I need any other bits and bobs?

You will indeed! Obtaining the correct pH level in any pool is paramount for obtaining the best results from the added chlorine.  Ideally this should be between 7.2 and 7.6, pH correction tablets or granules can be used to obtain the correct level.

Dosing floats are really handy if you have no dosing chambers on your pool or spa.  These will hold the tablets required and bob around whist not in use. Remember to take them out before you get in!

Regularly testing your pools chlorine and pH level is important, so you will need a means of testing.  The easiest and quickest way is with a Test Strips, you will then know for sure if you need to put more chemicals in, or if you don’t?

  1. Order your product!

Now you know just how much water you have and what product is perfect for your pool, come back and order it here!

  1. It’s here!

What are you waiting for? Let’s start dosing! Make sure you have read the instructions fully and understand them. With all chemicals, the first time you treat the tap water filled pool, you need to first test and adjust the pH level. Retest to be sure that you have the correct level, then chlorine ‘shock’ the water (which means that you will need to put extra chemicals in, to give it that boost, this is at a rate of 3 times the normal dose rate). Don’t panic, you won’t overdose and you only need to do this once! Test again before using to make sure that your levels are right.

  1. Splish Splash Splosh!

Now’s the time to get your swimmers on and enjoy your pool! Don’t forget to check your pool daily with your test strips and keep that pool dosed safely! Your water may need dosing more than you expected; this can be down to the location of your pool, the amount of people hopping in and out, as well as how much sunlight is in contact with the water. It’s not an exact science but careful monitoring is key.
