How to fix your swimming pool’s leaky ball
Posted On August 2, 2021
The leaky swimming pool ball is the subject of a new TV advert, which has been watched by a million viewers.
The ad shows a group of children, each dressed in a white bikini, in a pool.
One boy is holding a ball of fibres in his hands.
“I’ve got it,” he says, pointing to the ball.
“But the ball is leaking.”
The ad features a young boy who is dressed in white, with a fibre ball.
The boy says, “The ball is a problem,” as he holds the ball, and a voiceover says, it is not your problem.
“It is not an issue of what you wear, it’s an issue with the way the ball moves,” it adds.
In the ad, the boys have a discussion about the ball and what it’s doing to them.
They discuss how it is making them feel uncomfortable and sad.
The boys’ mum is shown explaining that fibres don’t cause any harm.
“They’re soft and it is quite harmless,” she says.
It is not known if the ball in the ad was damaged. “
What you have to realise is that fibreglass is not a safe material.”

The ball is not the only thing causing problems in the swimming pool.
A baby has been in the pool for four months, and the swimming lessons it is receiving have been interrupted because of a leaky pool ball.
In August, another swimming pool had to close after the ball fell out of the pool.
The children’s mum explains that a fibreglastic ball is made from a mixture of fibregular and polymers.
The fibres, called “cushions”, are not only soft, but also waterproof, and can be reused by the children’s bodies.
“You have to be careful about where the ball sits,” she said.
“Because the ball has a little bump at the top, you can see where it’s sitting.”
She said the ball was not the issue.
“There is no reason to be alarmed,” she told The New Zealand Herald.
A spokeswoman for the company that makes the ball said the company had no immediate comment. “
We are working with a company that’s working with the manufacturer to find out exactly what’s going on.”
