Maintaining your pool during Spring

  • Thoroughly clean the pool and vacuum the walls and floor
  • Check the pump is working properly and organise a full pool equipment service by a licensed pool and spa technician
  • Check or replace fittings and check for leaks
  • Check the chlorine and pH levels every two weeks
  • Empty the skimmer basket when full
  • Occasionally check the water level is half way up the skimmer box opening
  • Occasionally check the pressure gauge on the filter is not indicating ‘backwash’
  • Turn the pool lights on for at least 30 minutes a week to prevent build-up of moisture within the light and wiring
