The summer heat has finally arrived and has continued for the past few weeks and there doesn’t look to be an end in sight! The summer temperature brings everyone around the pool to cool off, splash and have some fun.
After having all of your family and friends at the pool during the 4th of July and then again day after day with this heat, have you noticed that your pool just isn’t sparkling like it use to? Even after shocking?!
There are a few reasons, but the two most common are over cleaning or backwashing of your filter and turning the pump off.
Sand Filters work best when they are a little dirty because the additional dirt actually helps trap the smaller particles of dirt and impurities from circulating into the pool again. A sand filters require the pressure on the gauge to increase from about 10 to 15 lbs after the last backwash prior to completing the process again.
DE Filters require a little more work and yes, the gauge still needs to increase 10 lbs before backwashing. While backwashing, remember to switch back and forth on the DE filter from “filter” to “backwash” settings several times during the backwashing process. Once the backwash process has been completed, remember that a DE filter needs to be recharged and requires more diatomaceous earth to be added.
Cartridge Filters are a little different and don’t require backwashing. Instead, the pump has to be shut off and then you can remove the cartridge from the filter and hose it down until it is clean. During the season, sometimes the cartridge filter requires to be deep cleaned and soaked in a “filter cleaner and degreaser” over night and rinsed thoroughly prior to replacing it into the filter canister.
Ok, the other most common issue is turning the pump off. It doesn’t matter if it’s during the day or night, Pool World recommends to allow the filtration system to run 24 hours a day. The more circulation and filtration the pool receives the healthier, clearer and more enjoyable the pool will be!
Remember; allow your filtration system to do all the hard work. Be patience and allow the filtration system to do its job! This will make your swimming pool look amazing!
