Avoid unnecessary interruptions when you look forward to enjoying your pool the most! Before the temperature rises, take a few of these things into consideration:
If you’ve put off draining your pool in the fall you may have significant levels of Calcium Hardness and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), which can lead to skin and eye irritation as well as a chemically unbalanced pool.
A filter pump that sounds louder than normal, drips from the Shaft-seal, or leaks from the gasket can all be signs of poor circulation to come. Replace your existing pump and install a compliant Variable Speed Pump by taking advantage of rebates made available by APS and SRP.
Think more than just Backwashing
How long has it been since your filter was serviced? No matter the type, filters need more attention than a simple backwashing. Sand media needs to be replaced after the sand becomes “gummed up” with debris, usually every 3 to 5 years. While DE filters, have grids that need to be rinsed off by taking the filter apart for individually cleaning. Cartridge style filters, although exempt from backwashing, similarly need to be taken a part and have the elements cleaned.
