Unlocking the best anti-aging secret

Did you know prevention is the best form of protection? And did you know that exposure to UV rays (UVA and UVB) causes sunburn, skin aging and eye damage, as well as melanoma and other skin cancers?

So the answer the best anti-aging secret is simple… Slip, Slop, Slap…

Slip on some sun-protective clothing – this doesn’t have to be your grandma’s dressing gown, but possible a long sleeve cotton shirt

Slop on some SPF 30+ sunscreen that filters approx. 97% of UVB rays

Slap on the latest fashion in sunhat

Rock into your 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s or 70s like a spring chicken with skin that has been lovingly protected and save on expensive trips to beauty counter and/or doctors.

Buying local and online is possible…

We have all bought online and worried if we are going to get the ‘real deal’ and wondered if we will get back up and support. At Kreepy Krauly we are proudly Australia Designed, Made and Owned and as a result we want to support your local pool shop and you the best way possible. We have done this buy pairing every transaction online with your closest local pool shop to ensure REAL expert advice is a walk, car ride or phone call away.

When buying online with us simply choose the right cleaner for you by either:

  • Selecting the cleaner directly; or
  • Using our pool cleaner selector, where in 4 simple steps we will get the right cleaner for your needs:

What should you expect next after clicking ‘Buy it Now’?

  • A pop up window will appear, select if you want local installation (if available in your area) or leave it unticked for free delivery
  • Then put in your postcode, selecting your suburb from the drop-down list for delivery/installation, by your local pool shop
  • You will get a few of your closest pool shops to choose from to be your local contact for service and support
  • The rest of the transaction is pretty straight forward from here

What happens if I don’t have a local pool shop for delivery/installation?

We live in a beautiful and large country, so sometimes the closest pool shop is more than a hop, skip and a jump away. However, don’t worry we will send you out your cleaner via tracked courier and still get you to choose your closest and most favourite pool shop to give you a call to say hello and that are there for you for hints, tips and support.

Rest assured by buying online with Kreepy Krauly.

How to extend the life of your Kreepy Krauly?

So you have gotten a Kreepy Krauly, so lets officially welcome him/her into your family. This new member we promise will be the hardest worker, working 365 days a year in rain, hail and shine. You can splash, drop leaves and even forget to pay pocket money and it won’t stop the daily clean.

Once you have gotten use to almost forgetting about your pool, it might pay to consider a few things to keep your “Kreep” happier for longer:

  • Remove your cleaner if you intend to chemically “Shock” your pool in any way
  • In winter adjust your automatic chlorination settings down if you using a pool blanket
  • When cleaning your skimmer basket, check your automatic vacuum control valve moves freely to ensure too much vacuum isn’t going to your cleaner, causing premature wear

If you need any hints on shocking, chlorination settings or any other advice about your pool, feel free to contact one of our friendly dealers.
