Wash goggles in fresh water after every use and let dry in shade.
- Do not leave in the sun.
- Do not leave in the car or boot on hot summer days excessive heat may cause damage to your swimming goggles.
To remove any chlorine, salt or oil build-up on your goggle lenses. It is best to use lukewarm water with a few drops of mild dishwashing detergent. Gently agitate the goggles in the solution, then rinse in fresh water and hang out of the sun to dry.
Selecting the Correct Swim Goggles
A good method to see if a goggle suits your facial structure is to try, “The Suction Test”.
Take a pair of goggles and place against your eye sockets, without putting the headband in place. Push gently with your thumbs in the middle front section of the lens. If momentary suction is achieved, then more than likely this model will be suitable.
Be aware that not every model will fit every facial structure. If the incorrect model is chosen? Then there is a greater chance the goggles become uncomfortable and will leak when swimming.
The comfort and sensitivity of a goggle seal will vary significantly between the different materials such as Foam, PVC, TPR, Silicone or Liquid Silicone.
Adjusting Your Goggles
POD Swim goggles come with a wide range of nose pieces, depending on the model.
- The traditional slotted nose piece.
- The fixed length nose bridge, which may come with 2, 3 or 4 sizes.
- One-piece construction, where there is no adjustment.
- One-piece flex construction, this is where the frame is constructed from a flexible material will allow the nose piece area to slightly stretch.
- Racing goggles “string and tube” and with latex strap nose pieces.
Nose Piece Adjustment
Due to the wide range of nose pieces (also known as a nose bridge) available on today’s swimming goggles, become familiar with the style you have selected, so you understand the best and easy way to make adjustments.
A goggle headband is designed to keep the goggle in place whilst swimming and should be adjusted to a comfortable length. A tight fit is not necessarily the right fit.
If you need to over tighten the headband? Then this is a good indication that the goggle is not suitable for your facial structure.
The tighter you wear a headband the more chance you will snap the headband strap.
POD has many different styles of headbands, also different methods of securing, so they won’t slip whilst swimming.
Again, familiarise yourself with the style headband that is associated with the selected swim goggles will ensure any adjustments is easily achieved.
