Keep up-to-date with whats happening within the property market on Costa del Sol.Go
Many properties on the Costa del Sol have swimming pools, either private or for the urbanization, and there’s no doubt from a rental point of view that they are a real draw. However, they do have to be properly maintained to make sure the water quality is good enough and communities must comply with certain regulations for safety and to avoid hefty fines, here are a few tips.
- Be green and save money – There are some great alternatives to the traditional chemicals used in pools which have better environmental credentials, less side effects (smell, damage to clothes and hair etc) and save you money. One option is to use ozone, or Ultraviolet rather than chlorine to sanitize water, another is to use pool purifiers which are solar powered and can stop the growth of algae and microorganisms with very little cost.
- Understand the regulations and comply – If you have a pool on your urbanisation and there are more than 20 properties, there are a number of important rules and regulations you need to comply with including pool fencing. The Junta de Andalucia specifies a number of regulations which are detailed on Angloinfo and if they are ignored there are some very big fines which can be applied http://costabrava.angloinfo.com/information/lifestyle/sports-and-leisure/spanish-pool-laws/
Look after your pool all year round – If you’re not living in Spain and only rent the property during the peak periods it is easy to forget about the pool during the winter months. However, leaving it alone for months on end can give you a costly and difficult problem to deal with when you return, so it’s better to keep it regularly maintained and checked to avoid problems developing.
