I would advise that if you do not have any prior experience you should take a pool maintenance course on island. The courses available for home pool owners are not too intense or techie and contain really useful information.

Just because a pool is blue does not mean its safe. And there is more to maintaining a pool then adding whatever random chlorine you find are given in the shop and hovering the bottom.

A Pool with incorrect flow settings or balance can still be clear and blue however;

Incorrect flow settings = Algae, high utility bills, high risk of illness.
Incorrect water balance = Damage to liner, damage to pipework & pump, increased chemical cost, high risk of illness.

I have been providing pool services & professional advice on the island for 10 years. I am also a Certified Pool Inspector and during this time I have lost count of the times i have been called out to a pool and found the someone has caused major damage or injury because of something they heard or read online. There is a lot of good information online but its mixed in with a lot of bad and unless you know the difference you are opening yourself up to all sorts of problems.

There are a few training providers so just do a Google search for something like "Pool Maintenance Training Cyprus".

The pool professionals usually hold (the good ones) a CPO certification which is the approved operator certification in Cyprus (and no certification also means no insurance). Any company that teaches this CPO course will likely provide courses for home pool owners as well.

They will likely have courses from the very basic online interactive course through to private tutorials at your pool and the cost for one of there courses will likely be less than a months professional maintenance.

I hope this helps. PM me if you want any more advice, I am always happy to help people with pool related problems.
Hi I have tried Google search, they appear to be for persons requiring certificates in pool management etc. I am looking for total novice course near Larnica/Paralimni have tried to pm you with no success.
