Most frequent questions and answers

Why is my pool green?

Three things keep a swimming pool in working order.

Proper Chemistry: see also "What should I be testing my water for?"
Proper Filtration: Your pressure gauge on your filter will tell you all you need to know. Every pool has a "normal operating pressure" usually between 10-20 psi. You should note your pool's pressure. This can be done after a bi-annual cleaning of D.E. (diatomaceous earth), or cartridge filters, when the pressure is at the lowest. This is when your filter is completely taken apart and thoroughly cleaned. If you have a sand filter then it would be after a backwash. Also refer to "When should I backwash?"
Proper Circulation: A normal swimming pool circulation pump should run at least 6-8-hours per day in the winter months and 10-12 hours per day in the summer months (every pool is slightly different). If you are working with a green pool, up the run times until pool is clear.

Check your filter pressure gauge for low readings (below normal operating pressure). Low pressure would be a sign of one or all of the following.
Low water level:. The water level should be half-way up the skimmer opening to prevent air from being introduced into the system causing a loss of water flow.
Clean skimmers and pump baskets:. This prevents loss of flow and possible clogged lines or clogged impeller at the circulation pump.
Suction leak. This is when your pump is pulling in enough air to cause a loss of water flow. It can originate at your pump or pump seals, plumbing, or valves prior to the pump. If this seems to be the case, consult a pool professional.

How Long Should My Pool Equipment Run?

Usually, we recommend that your filter system run 6 to 8 hours per day. When the Texas summer hits and water temperatures start to climb above 80° run the system 8 to 12 hours per day.

 

Should I Brush My Pool?

You probably already have an automatic pool cleaner. However, most don’t provide scrubbing. Brushing your pool really does help remove algae or any other small particles from the pool’s surface. Pay special attention to spots where water circulation is a problem (behind ladders, steps and corners). Consider brushing the walls, benches, and all other pool surfaces once a week.

Do I Drain My Pool Each Year?

Under most conditions, you should not drain your pool, especially during the winter. The water in the pool during the winter helps protect the bottom of the pool from cracking during freezing temperatures. You should consider a pool cover during the off-season to protect the pool from debris and cold temperatures.

What should I be testing for?

There are 6 main tests that are all equally important listed below with recommended ranges. If you are fighting an algae issue you will need to increase the chorine level by adding a high dose of powder chlorine (shock) after making sure all other tests are within proper ranges. You may also need an algaecide for some types of algae. Consult a pool professional for help.

  • Free Chlorine: 3-5ppm
  • Total Chlorine: should be the same reading as Free Chlorine or you will need to add proper amount of shock.
  • pH: 7.2-7.8
  • Alkalinity: 80-120ppm
  • Cyanuric Acid: 30-50ppm (salt systems 80-120ppm) This is also known as Conditioner or Stabalizer
  • Calcium Hardness: 200-400ppm

For salt system test for salt to keep the correct ppm (parts per million) per the manufacturer. If all levels of salt are correct and the system is still offline consult a pool professional.

How Often Should The Skimmer & Basket Be Cleaned?

You know that a clogged skimmer basket restricts water flow in your pool. When water is restricted, it can’t circulate properly and that could cause problems later on. The same thing goes for your pump basket. The pump can overheat If water is restricted. Get in the habit of cleaning skimmer baskets daily and inspect for cracks or damage.

How Often Do I Need To Backwash My Filter?

If you have the most common style, a D.E. filter, we recommended the filter be backwashed when the pressure reaches 10PSI above starting pressure or once a month.

 

Do I Need Chlorine In My Saltwater Pool?

There may be rare occasions where you need to “shock” the pool with additional chlorine. However, your saltwater pool actually converts ordinary salt into chlorine automatically. This is why saltwater pools are a great option for those who are sensitive to chlorine. Chlorine generated pools, or “saltwater pools” have softer water and can be gentler on eyes, skin and hair.
