Swimming Pool Maintaence- Tips



On this page you will find a number of highlights and guidelines regarding cleaning and maintaining your swimming pool, as well as using and handling it.

Remember! A clean swimming pool is important for the health of the people using it, saves money on chemicals and keeps your equipment in good condition. 




!ePool- The ultimate water quality sensor. Effort and worry free

Now you can enjoy your swimming pool and/ or hot tub without any worry if the water is balanced or needing to balance it. 

The e-Pool system is an advanced senor that checks the water continuously 24 hours, and passes on its finding to an indicator located in the house. There is no need to bend over anymore, to collect water from your swimming pool or hot tub, in order to test the water.  





Using the suction broom

The pool pump must be activated at least 10 hours continuously a day (timed by a time switch or as needed).

While the water goes back into the pool, the resistance level is measured for the water transition in the filter, by a manometer.

The normal range in the filter is between 1-2. When the pressure in the filter reaches 2, you will need to rinse the filter.

Remember!  You will need to stop the suction function before moving the handle on the multi directional stopper from position to position 



There are three main types of chlorine for private swimming pool:

A.     "Big" chlorine (TRICHOR) 200 gram chlorine tablets, which sustain the stability of the amount of free chlorine in the pool (contains cyanuric acid)

B.     "Almond" chlorine (HTH) 7.5 gram chlorine tablets, giving your pool water a "pool shock"

C.    Chlorine powder (HTH) giving instant dissolve (in a bucket) of the chlorine and scattering it directly on the pool water, for a fast cleaning effect.

The level of chlorine required is usually 3.0- 1.0 PPM (parts per million)

Remember! The correct PH acidity allows proper operation of the chlorine, as well as keeping the pool equipment in shape.  The PH level that's required is between 7.2-7.6 if the water is out of balance, you can "fix" the PH level by adding chemicals according to the situation and guidelines given.  


Pay special attention!

A.     Chlorine is toxic and explosive. Keep it in a closed cool place. Far away from fire, heat and children. Keeping chlorine in the heat and/ or sun, or mixing different types of chlorine can be dangerous and cause an explosion.

B.    Using immoderate amounts of chemicals can harm the swimmers.  Be careful when using chemicals (of all types).  Consult us at any time!

C.    Do not throw/ put chlorine directly on the PVC sheet. This can cause damage to the color of the sheet and cause irreversible damage.  

D.   In the automatic chlorinator  you should only use 'big" chlorine (TRICHLOR). Using any other kind of chlorine, and/ or mixing different types of chlorine in the chlorinator can be dangerous and cause an explosion.  

E.     The tablet chlorinator needs to always be full of water, while assuring the pool water to flow constantly through the chlorinator, a few hours a day (pool water spin). A chlorinator without a constant flow of water, can cause gas pressure (chlorine), which can be dangerous and cause an explosion.

F.     Remember! To take the chlorine out of the chlorinator when the pool is not in use and the spin is not working.  



Order of operation of the suction broom:

1.     Put the pole in the water while the brush and pipeline are connected at the end.

2.     Fill the floating pipeline with water

3.     Connect the floating pipeline to the skimmer, using the coordinating plate. The pipeline connects to the skimmer with the coordinating plate, and passes the "pump suction force" to the sucking brush on the broom.

4.     Store your suction valves besides the skimmer that’s attached to the suction broom.

5.     Let the air out of the piping by using the air regulator on the end of the filter cover.

6.     Clean the swimming pool floor by moving the pole and the brush, in slow movements on the bottom of the pool



Weekly recommended actions

A.     Clean scum and leaves from the skimmer baskets

B.    Clean the fatty streak off the water line, using an abrasive cleaning pad with cleaning fluid

C.    Check the pressure levels in the filter, and wash as necessary

D.    Check the chlorine level and the PH level, add chlorine as needed

E.     Clean the bottom of the pool from filth, using the suction broom or an automatic cleaner

F.     In the automatic chlorinator- make sure that the right amount of chlorine has been absorbed in the water.

G.    Pools that are nearby shedding trees, must observe a more frequent cleaning of the leaf baskets.



Detecting faults in the swimming pool:

If the motor is not working- check:

1.     Is electricity being supplied to the motor

2.     Did the main switch jump

3.     Are the suction and delivery taps open

4.     Is the multi way valve on "FILTER" position

5.     Is the pressure on the gauge, on its normal level 



Dirty water comes back through the nozzles:

1.     Rinse the filter in a "BACK WASH" position once again. Then rinse the filter in the "RINSE" position, then in the "WASTE" for a few seconds.

2.     If after all these rinses, slight dirt continues to come back into the pool, let the dirt sink to the bottom of the pool and collect it, using the suction broom and the multi way valve is on "WASTE" position. This way you can remove the dirt from the spin system of the pool.

Very often the fine dirt is microscopic algae, which then requires enhancing chlorination.

1.     Boost the chorine level in the water to kill the algae.


The suction broom is connected but unable to vacuum- check:

1.     Did the suction valves that are not connected to the skimmer that’s connected to the broom, close down

2.     Has all the air been taken out of the suction pipe

3.     Is the pump cover closed properly

4.     Is the height of the water in the pool over half the height of the opening of the skimmer

5.     Is the pressure level in the filter normal during the broom activity

6.     Check that there is no hole in the suction pipe

7.     Check that the coordinating plate is in its right position in the skimmer

8.     Check that no rough objects in the brush are disturbing the water flow  


  Green water- check:

1.     Is the chlorine level right- 1.0 Ppm (at least)

2.     In the automatic chlorinator make sure that the chlorine has definitely been absorbed in the water

3.     Check if the water level in the pool, allows the skimmer to perform properly

4.     Is the pump working, spinning and loading properly the chlorine

5.     Is there an external factor that’s effected the level of the chlorine (such as a larger amount of bathers, the grass being fertilized etc.)


If so, add chlorine



Cloudy water- check:

1.     The chlorine level in the pool, add as needed

2.     The PH level, correct as needed

3.     The pressure level in the filter, wash as needed

4.     Are the filters working on a daily basis (is the pump working)



The pool is losing water:

1.     Check if the pool is losing more water than usual when it naturally evaporates

2.     Check if water is coming out of the emptying hose, while the valve is in "FILTER" mode. If it is call us

3.     Make sure that no one is taking water out of the pool, without you knowing

4.     Make sure that no one has washed or emptied the filter (remember that by doing this the water level in the pool will decrease)
