Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

Why my pool water is cloudy?

Cloudy pool water can be caused by several factors such as poor filtration, high pH, or excess sunscreen left by swimmers. The best course of action is to take a water sample to your local pool professionals for testing. They can identify the cause of the problem and provide a solution to clear your cloudy pool water.

What is the recommended duration to run my pool filter?

Typically, running your filter for 8 hours a day is the optimal amount of time. However, in hotter climates where the temperature goes above 80°F, it is recommended to run the filter for up to 12 hours per day.

How long does it take to perform weekly pool maintenance?

The time required for weekly pool maintenance can vary depending on the size and shape of your pool, the surrounding environment, and the tools you use. Generally, testing water and adding chemicals can take around 5 minutes, while brushing or vacuuming the pool can take around 30 minutes. If you find yourself spending more time than that, it may be worth seeking professional help to establish a more efficient maintenance routine.

How long should I run my pool equipment?

We recommend running your filter system for 6 to 8 hours per day. During hot weather, the temperature can rise above 80°F, so it is advisable to run the system for 8 to 12 hours per day.

Do I need to brush my pool even if I have an automatic pool cleaner?

n automatic pool cleaner may not be able to thoroughly scrub your pool, especially in hard-to-reach areas. Regular brushing helps remove algae and other small particles from the pool surface. Pay close attention to areas where water circulation is restricted and brush the walls, benches, floor, and other surfaces at least once a week.

How should I maintain my pool lighting?

To maintain pool lighting, regularly clean the light covers, replace old bulbs, and ensure that leaves and debris do not come into contact with the lights.

How frequently should I clean my skimmer and pump baskets?

Dirty or clogged skimmer and pump baskets can restrict water flow, leading to circulation problems and potential equipment damage. It is recommended to clean the skimmer basket daily and inspect it for cracks, replacing if necessary.
