Expert advice for pool owners
Aussie Pools is a series of information pages that is open to new contributions and feedback from anyone with specialist knowledge within the swimming pool industry. We have no hidden agenda to promote certain companies, products, or materials. This is a place where people can come and learn and share experiences both good and bad. This is your place to share experiences and help other pool owners make good choices. Also, we want to help pool owners avoid making bad ones. We exist because there are very few sites on the internet that will give advice without trying to spin or sell particular products or systems.
Expert advice…not just tips and ideas
Unlike many websites, the content on these pages is reviewed for accuracy and written by qualified people who know what they are talking about. This means that the advice is reliable and trustworthy. Some information found online is not only completely incorrect but at times, downright dangerous to follow. Please make sure that you double-check any information that you see online that comes from unidentified sources because if something goes wrong then you may have nowhere to turn.
We help you make informed decisions about pool products
Each page of this website offers an unbiased snapshot of each product or issue that pool owners often face. This is the place where you can come and read both sides of the story, rather than a one-sided fancy sales pitch. The internet is already full of that. We discuss the good and bad about everything. This allows you to know what you are dealing with and helps you also make sure that the product you buy is suited to you and your pool.
The truth is, every product has good and bad characteristics. We aim to present all products fairly and in a balanced way, both good and bad. If you feel we have not done that, please let us know and we will be happy to do what we can to fix it.
In each state, there are various places that you can turn to if you need assistance in dealing with product issues. For example, Australian Consumer Law is available and applicable to everyone no matter where you live. Importantly, this legislation provides a way for consumers to obtain a refund, replacement, or repair of a defective product or material. If you find yourself in this situation, reading a little about your rights may be of great comfort.
We have assisted many clients in getting refunds or replacements for various products over the years by directing them to proper scientific and factual information that will stand up to proper scrutiny.
