Sweating - January 21, 2014
It’s the middle of January with gloomy cold days that may lead you to feeling a little sad, have tendency to oversleep and over eat or even depression. To fight against these symptoms as well as many others, there are a variety of things that may be done but two popular ones are exercise and sauna bathing.
Sauna bathing and exercise both have one key thing in common, sweat! Sweating has a variety of benefits such flushing toxins from the body. Flushing toxins like copper, lead, zinc, nickel, mercury from our bodies will allow your body to function more effectively. Toxins are stored in organs such as liver, stomach and kidneys. A routine of sweating and detoxification of the body has the potential to leave the body feeling “lighter” and having more energy. The body’s immune system will become stronger and even your circulatory system will be improved. Toxins that accumulate in the body may also affect our brain functions, removing these will result in a sounder sleep and a better concentration.
If you think a personal sauna is out of reach, look no further! Pool World has a variety of Finnleo Traditional and Infrared Saunas on sale now including discontinued models! Units that start as low as $1595.00!!

Warm Weather - January 15, 2014
The last few weeks our January weather has resembled normal weather for March. Even the normal precipitation is down across the board for rain and snow! Weather like this can cause some pool owners to worry if their is enough chlorine in their pool. Here are a few tips to help ease your mind and how to check your pool.
- If the pool is frozen like an ice cube, you have nothing to worry about. Remember to check on it periodically as the weather starts to get warmer.
- If pool has thawed but is still cold, scoop up a cup or two of water below the surface of the water. Take your handy dandy water chemistry test strips and test to see if there is a residual of cholorine present in the water.
- If the test strip shows any sign of chlorine, you are find to wait a few more weeks and test again.
- If the test strip doesn't show any chlorine, then go to your closest Pool World location and pick up liquid chlorine. A employee should be able to assist you with getting the proper amount for application for your specific swimming pool.
