    We'll just have to suck it and see, mate. Not day by day, but week by week you'll build up a picture of how business is going. We don't know what we don't know about this thing yet. Be thankful you don't have a restaurant.

    Is that what you do?

    That was done at the place I bought. Concrete became porous. I don't think they used very good quality as its badly faded above and a bit below the waterline. At least it doesn't leak though.

    Yes I noticed you had a liner in your pool. Unusual to fade above the waterline!! Chlorine is usually the enemy, it is as you know a bleach, so over time it will fade. I run a system which uses copper and silver ions, (like the romans did I believe). Crystal clear pool, no fading, no smell. Enviroswim ES3, made on the Gold Coast.

    It's salt water chlorinated, if that makes any difference. , however if it was the chlorine wouldn't all of it be faded? I assumed it was uv fading.

    The funeral of one of my best friends has been heavily impacted by this, there was significant uncertainty and delays in repatriating his body from Hokkaido due to the CV, quarantine and fewer flights. The restrictions on public gatherings announced on Friday and today have meant that the arrangements for tomorrows funeral have had to be reworked and scaled back significantly over the weekend .... On top of that his wife has been dealing with the impact on their business and from Tuesday all Canberra schools are closed and their kids will be at home.

    They can’t but the Swire group has big coffers....Don’t know how long they can hold out though...They just sold 6 Boeing 777s last week for 700M USD and leased them straight back...

    Mate you and I,and probably a few more on here,are in a situation where a large number of folk are going to rely on their cars to get them to work.
    You will be on the front line as you will have a huge number of folk who usually commute to work,wherever that maybe,by public transport.......a mode that I suspect will diminish as of about 4 hours ago!
    Their cars,not usually pressed into daily driving ,may not be in the best of mechanical/electrical condition and may breakdown as a result of this more active use.
    I am not quite in the same geophyisical situation as you are but when their cars breakdown from their,now,more regular use........
    They would rather spend the bucks to be in their own space rather than be in a coughing and spitting train carriage .

    The salt is converted into chlorine through the chlorinator so it still bleaches the liner(especially if the output level is wound right up), but like I say its rare to see a liner faded more above the waterline than below. Must be pretty old, and or of lesser quality.

    There really needs to be a thumbs down button on here or something.
    Very sorry to hear of all the troubles everyone is experiencing.
    Chatted to a few mates and family on the phone tonight, and it’s not a pretty picture for anyone.
    Good luck to you all.
