guest blogger peter fudge – things that inspire me

About a year ago we packed up the family and moved into a new place. We said goodbye to our small but perfectly formed garden and said hello instead to a larger project altogether. I’d like to use the term makeover to describe the project but I’m not sure it’s strong enough! We inherited a kidney shaped pool with terracotta coping that showcased, much to my kids delight, a faux rock water feature in one corner. Thankfully a beautiful, fruitful mango tree overhangs it!

Long term I can make the garden work with the existing pool, we’ll look at getting some new coping and the enhancement of a new garden. But my very first step was to convert the salt water pool to a magnesium pool. Magnesium can be added to any existing salt or chlorine pool and the end result is great. Magnesium salts are gentle and therapeutic for the skin, no more itchy, stinging eyes or smelly chlorine skin. There is zero chlorine odor and in a properly balanced pool the water even tastes like mineral water. The best part though, is that with an environmentally friendly pool solution you can use the backwash water to irrigate your plants and garden. Even our dog prefers to drink from our pool now!

Magna Pool is the registered product for sale throughout Australia and as I mentioned before any existing pool can be converted. I’m really happy to see there is something environmentally friendly and innovative out in the market.
