BIOTOP now provides a comprehensive service page on its website. All seasonal maintenance activities for Living-Pools and Natural Pools are discussed there, and the emphasis is on the informative service videos. These videos provide step-by-step instructions on what tasks to perform and what tools to use.
Nothing is more descriptive than a video. That is why the BIOTOP Service department simply decided to film the process of yearly maintenance work. From vacuuming the sediment from the bottom of the Natural Pool and brushing its walls to cutting the plants and rinsing the regeneration zone, every maintenance task is shown in detail. The “large service” is only required every three to five years and focuses on cleaning the regeneration zone. The “small service” is recommended every autumn; incomplete or improper maintenance can make much more extensive – and expensive – work necessary later. The digital brochure “Service in Autumn” can also be downloaded and printed from the service page. All BIOTOP Partners also offer the performance of these maintenance tasks as a service, by the way.
An important factor in maintaining water quality in the long run is to prevent leaves from falling into the pool. A leaf-catching net is an efficient way of doing this. The following photos show how to mount the net over your pool. There are some detail photos as well, e.g. showing how to prevent the net from snagging and tearing on the end of the pool stair handrail. The solution: Simply place a bucket over the end of the handrail.
