Tips to keep your swimming pool sparkling! - May 29, 2015
After yesterday’s horrific rain storm, it’s key to have your swimming pool fully operational, treated and circulating to maintain and keep sparkling clear water! After this week’s storms with dust, debris and gunk flying around and getting into your pool, now is the best time to ensure that your pool’s filtration system is working to its full potential.
Here at Pool World we recommend a few helpful tips to make sure that your pool’s circulation is doing all it can do to make your life a little easier.
Check all of the pool’s skimmers and main drains. At each of these points, you want to confirm that these points are pulling water into your filter system. Every swimming pool has a unique arrangement in regards to the valves and where the filtration system pulls suction from. Once you have mastered your layout, remember to label them to ensure ease of operation next year!
Check out the return jets on the pool walls. These jets are returning clean and filtered water back into your swimming pool. The water returning into your pool is what helps the water circulate beneath the surface. To ensure that the water is circulating at its best, make sure to angle the return eyelets to 4 or 7 o’clock. This will be about a 40 degree angle down and are all pointed in the same direction. The water angle and direction will help to circulate the water away from the skimmer and keep the deep end and corners from becoming stagnant.
If your swimming pool was built with jets around the steps, point the jets to stream the water across the surface of each of the steps. The stream of water will help to push off any dirt that accumulates on the surface.
When was the last time you replaced the pressure gauge? The filter pressure gauge does not need to be replaced every year but there are a few key ways to confirm that it’s working properly. First, if you turn off your pump, the pressure gauge should sit at zero. A second part to this trick, figure out what normal pressure is for the filter. After your next backwash cycle, remember to check what the clean operating pressure is. From the clean operating pressure, wait for the pressure gauge to increase 8 to 10 psi over the clean operating pressure until you backwash again. This will ensure that your filter is working to its full potential.
Memorial Day Weekend! - May 22, 2015
Kick this weekend off right! Have a barbecue… Enjoy the sunshine and splash into your swimming pool! This weekend is time for family, friends and enjoying the land of the free!
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day was created to remember those who died in service of the United Sates of America. This weekend has been filled with century old traditions including wearing red poppies, visiting cemeteries and place flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes and visiting memorials.
Enjoy your long weekend but remember to take a moment on Monday to honor the men and women who died in service for our nation.
Pool World will be open Saturday from 9-5pm and will be closed Sunday and Monday in honor of Memorial Day. All four store locations will reopen on Tuesday May 26th.
