Since it's fall and the leaves are beginning to fall, it's important to keep your pool in good condition. Follow these simple steps to keep your pool in tip top shape.
Check Filter Elements
A cartridge pool filter is a type of filter that's commonly used for keeping your pool water clean. It's important to regularly clean and inspect these components to ensure they are working properly.
Clean DE Filters
A DE filter is designed to filter the smallest particles in the water. It does a great job of keeping the water in your pool clean, but it also requires regular maintenance.
This step is usually performed during the fall season to ensure that your filter is clean and crystal-clear. Before performing the cleaning, inspect the DE grids for any signs of damage.
After the cleaning process, add the required amount of DE powder to the skimmer. It's important to make sure that the right amount of powder is used.
Take off the Leaves
Unfortunately, leaves and organic debris such as algae can also damage your pool’s filter and pump. Fortunately, there are products designed to remove these issues. These items can help keep the leaves from floating around the pool and remove the debris from the surface. They can also be used to supplement the chlorine in the pool.
Stains on the Surface
If the leaves and other materials that came into the pool have left their mark, it's time to get professional help. In most cases, stains from organic materials can be treated with chlorine. However, inorganic stains can also be treated with various chemicals.
Prepare the Spa
The cooling season is the ideal time to make sure your spa is running smoothly. This is also the time to check the chemicals in the system and make sure the filter is working properly.
