The industry’s best pool maintenance and pool service tips that other pool contractors wish you didn’t know.
Proper pump installation and maintenance will keep the motor dry and away from water splashing or spraying. Also, it must be installed in an area that will give it proper circulation around the pool motor. Inspect it regularly and make sure that dirt and debris haven’t collected near it. If you have a cover on the motor, make sure it’s not collecting condensation.
Changing Pool Filters for regular pool service & pool maintenance
Pool filters need to be changed every year or two minimum. However, there are times when it might need to be changed sooner. Inspect your pool filter monthly for frayed fabric or a collapsed core in the cartridge. Check the pool filter pressure gauge every week and make sure it is within the normal range of 10-25 PSI. A clogged swimming pool filter can cause the water pressure to be too high. This is why we recommend to keep a regular weekly pool maintenance and inspection routine to find leaks quickly.
Checking for leaks in the pool is another important part of pool maintenance. You can have leaks in the pool pump, filter, heater, pipes, or the chlorinator. To see if your pool is leaking, you can use the bucket test. Put a 5-gallon bucket on the second step of your pool. Add water to the bucket to match the current water level. Then, use a permanent marker to mark the level inside of the bucket. Turn off the pump and wait for 24 hours. If the water in your bucket and the pool has gone down, but are even, this is normal evaporation. However, if the bucket is higher than the pool, you have a leak. If you live in the Round Rock, Pflugerville, Georgetown or Cedar Park subdivisions of Austin our Pool Service Technicians can help you with leak detection and service recommendations.
