require certain tools
to do their profession and pool maintenance is no different. To clean
and maintain your pool you will need certain equipment.
an automatic cleaner in your swimming pool is very important as it
will make keeping your pool in pristine condition an easy task. Pool
cleaners work by collecting leaves and other debris that accumulates on
the bottom of the pool. This will in turn reduce the amount of time
spent by the pool owner on pool maintenance each week.
skimmer works by collecting leaves and other rubbish from the surface
of the water. The debris that accumulates on the surface area is sucked
in by the skimmer. Pool skimmers come in a variety of shapes and sizes
but they all work on the same principle which is to collect rubbish
from the waters surface. The rubbish is then kept in a net or basket
and the cleaning out of the basket should be added to your pool
recycle the water in the pool and clean the water by adding chemicals
and treating the water. There are a number of types of swimming pool
filters. You as the pool owner will have to
determine what type of
filter will be the best option for your needs. Filter maintenance
involves cleaning the cartridges or removing collected debris. Do not
neglect filter maintenance as this could cause the filter to
overheat and burn out which could cost a small fortune to repair.
working on the pools pump you must turn the pool pump off before
operating the multi-port valve. If your pool pump starts running while
making loud or making unusual noises, shut it off and contact a pool
professional. If your pump motor makes a humming noise and it will not
start, then turn off the power and check to see if the propeller is
clogged with debris. Checking and emptying the skimmer and pump basket
should be a part of your pool maintenance routine.
a beautiful white or blue light in your pool can add effect to the
pool. The pool light will look amazing during the night if you are
outside or if you are having a quick night dip. The type of light
suitable for your needs would depend on your personal tastes and the type of swimming pool.
Pool lights do not
require a lot of maintenance, only when the bulb needs to be changed.
the bulb needs to be changed make sure that you seal the light
compartment properly after replacing the globe.
Rubber valves, Gaskets:
your pool has a deck-mounted junction box then you will need to check
the condition of the gaskets regularly. Replace gaskets as they wear
out and make sure that water cannot enter the box. When you
are preparing your pool for
winter it is recommended that you coat all the
o-rings, rubber fittings, and gaskets with a silicone lube to keep them
from drying out.
This is the main equipment used for pool maintenance, but don’t forget
about the rest of the pool.
