Autumn (a beautiful time of year) indicates the end our swimming season. We trust you live in a part of the country that has been able to really enjoy this long summer. (Those of you cleaning up after ex-cyclones, our thoughts are with you.)
Whether you are still swimming or not, it is a good time to prepare for autumn leaves. Check your skimmer baskets are in good condition and if not, order in a new one as a backup. Make sure you regularly empty your skimmer basket over autumn otherwise it can break it from being overfull.
