Client note regarding the Swimming Pool:

"Don't be put off by the pool maintenance, it's quite easy and the pool has been totally for our family whilst we have been here. There have been many happy family BBQ's and pool parties which have been enjoyed by all.

To Winterise, simply, a gallon of chemicals go in the pool and the pump left on for a while to enable mixing, then you cover over with the winter cover until about May.  

The same to open it for use in the new seasons I.e a gallon of chemicals (both are around £65) leave this to filter through and add a chlorine block. Chlorine blocks are added weekly/2 weekly depending on how much you want the pool chlorinated. We used this lightly.

There is a separate gas boiler to the house and it costs around £25 to heat up for the weekend, we were going to swap to solar panels along the back fence as we have a south facing garden. We were quoted £600 in total for this work to be completed.

With the solar summer cover we found on hot days this was enough to heat the pool anyway to around 25 degrees."
