Maintaining Your Pool

Updated: Dec 8, 2023

Your pool should be cleaned once a week (more often if leaves or other debris are getting in the pool. BEFORE opening anything on the equipment, turn the pump off and release pressure from gauge on top of the filter.

  1. Brush walls, steps, and benches down to the main drain (floor).

  2. Vacuum debris from the floor.

  3. Clean the skimmer basket and pump basket. *This may need to be done often depending on leaves/debris.

  4. Re-fill chlorine tabs in feeder.

  5. Filters should be cleaned at least every other month.

  6. Check chemicals as needed.

  • Chemicals should never be added directly to the skimmer or in one spot.

  • Try to evenly distribute chemicals throughout the pool and in front of the jets.

How to Clean your Filters:

  • Take filters out and rinse off with a garden hose. DO NOT USE A PRESSURE WASHER ON YOUR FILTERS.

  • Rinse out the inside container through the drain cap to clean any debris settled at the bottom.

  • Re-assemble filter and fill halfway with water (this will help prime the equipment).

  • Filters may need to be cleaned more often depending on the environment debris

Pool Run Time:

  • April - October: Run pump 12 hours a day during the hottest part of the day.

  • September - March: Run pump 6-8 hours a day.

* If you are swimming outside of the normal scheduled run time always turn the pump on.

Miscellaneous Tips:

  • When turning valves, always turn slowly. Forcefully or quickly turn the valves can cause damage to the plumbing.

  • You should always vacuum to the skimmer basket with provided basket plate. Vacuuming without basket can cause buildup of leaves and other debris in the plumbing.

  • If the iAqualink app is not working, try turning off the main breaker to the equipment for 5-10 minutes, this will act as a reset on the WIFI system.

  • If there is a drip, or your pump will not prime after cleaning:

*Check that all the fittings are closed.

*Check that O-rings are clean (debris can stop a proper seal

*Fittings should be hand tight (too tight can cause compression on the O-ring

and stop a proper seal).
