Summer may still be a few months off, but experts are already predicting that it's going to be a good one. Long, hot and dry is the exact forecast.
Meteorologists have predicted that the El Nino weather event will return to Australia's east coast - bringing with it lots of sunshine.
Expected to return by as early as next month, El Nino could see us bringing out the bathers and sunscreen earlier than usual.
If forecasts are right, it might be a good time to clean out the pool in anticipation. Over winter, the pool can attract an accumulation of nasty stuff while unused, such as leaves, insects and dirt.
To ensure that you are prepared for a potential early summer, why not consider a pump hire from your local Kennards store?
If you want to drain your swimming pool, or part of it, replacing it with fresh chlorinated water, a submersible pump will be particularly beneficial.
Submersible pumps are available in a range of different styles, depending on the amount you want to drain and how much time you have up your sleeve.
