Top Tips for Clear Water
Keep your pool water clear all year long our 3 top tips.
#1 KEEP A CHECK YOUR WATER LEVEL & BASKETS
If your water level has dropped below the middle of your skimmer box, it’s time to top it up with the trusty garden hose. Filling it to halfway up your skimmer box, emptying your baskets regularly and replacing the filter sock occasionally will ensure efficient water flow and circulation, which helps your filter remove impurities.
#2 QUICK FILTER CHECKUP
To help keep your water clear all year round, check your pool filtration system is operating optimally. A pool of average size should run for 6-8 hrs per day in the summer, and 4hrs per day during the winter months.
Just like a vacuum cleaner there will be build-up of waste in your filter after a while which will affect the flow, which in turn can lead to cloudy water and algae outbreaks!
A ROBOTIC POOL CLEANER CAN FILTER YOUR POOL WATER, VACUUM UP DIRT, LEAVES, AND STICKS, WHICH WILL KEEP YOUR POOL WATER CLEANER AND YOUR POOL RUNNING LESS.
It is recommended that you backwash your pool’s filter every 3 months during the swimming season to flush out contaminants from the sand or glass media filters. The glass media is expected to last the lifetime of your filter, while the sand should be replaced every 8-10 years.
If you have a cartridge filter, remove the cartridges, and clean them every month, replacing them every 2-3 years.
#3 TEST YOUR WATER
After you’ve cleaned your filter, you’ll need to balance the water. We can electronically test your water instore to determine the right balance and advise on what to do if there are any imbalances.
We recommend testing your pool water every month. By staying on top of your chemical water balance, you’ll save money and achieve crystal clear water all year round.
