Ensure the pool is full
If you haven’t used your pool in a while, you may find the water level has dropped. If the water level in your pool drops below the skimmer box, you run the risk of running your pump dry and burning out. To avoid this from happening, set yourself a regular reminder to check whether your pool needs a top up.
Clean out baskets for the skimmer and the pump. If there is built up dirt and leaves in the baskets the skimmer or pump will not be able to perform their jobs as well as they should. This will help keep your pool clean and should be done on a weekly basis, and more if needed.
Get a 60 second water test
A water test will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the exact chemical dosages you pool requires to remain in top condition. Collect a sample from about an arm’s length under the water surface, away from a return. To have an accurate analysis, have the water tested within an hour of collecting. Head to your local Poolwerx store to receive your 60 second computerized water test and personalized prescription for chemicals, for free.
