Frequently Asked Questions & Safety Tips
How many hours should I run my filter each day?
Average size pool (20×40) or smaller should run a minimum of 8 hours a day. Larger pools should be increased in length of time relative to the larger size.
Is my pool leaking or is it evaporation?
Industry standard is ¼” per day, if the evenings are cooler than the water temperature water evaporation rates will be higher.
Why do my eyes burn after swimming?
Usually there is an absence of sanitizer (chlorine/bromine). Yes it’s true, low levels of sanitizer allows chloramines to develop, which can lead to lower PH/acidic water & cause skin irritation.
How long should we wait to swim after you've serviced the pool?
Unless you have been advised to stay out of the pool, you can swim within 15 minutes.
Are there any alternatives to chlorine & if so what are they?
Ultra Violet and Ozone, both of these technologies have been sanitizing water for a long time. The swimming pool industry embraced this technology about 5 years ago, with great success. All bottled drinking water must be UV treated.
What is a “Saltwater” pool, can I convert my pool to Saltwater?
Saltwater pools are chlorine pools. The salt that is put into the pool water is passed through a generator that turns the salt molecule into a very pure form of chlorine. Any pool can be converted, but this form of chlorine works best in vinyl & fiberglass swimming pools.
Do solar panels really work & do I still need a heater?
The answer is yes to both questions, when solar panels are installed with the proper sun exposure they work great. There will always be times when the sun hasn’t been out & you want the pool warm that’s why you need a propane/natural gas heater as a backup.
How can I keep my pool clean between service visits?
Empty the skimmer baskets, keep the water level in the pool ½ way across the tile line and remove all pool toys & floats.
What is the “Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act” also known as “VGB”?
This law was enacted in 2007, designed to prevent the tragic and hidden hazard of drain entrapments and eviscerations in pools and spas. To understand the entire law and how it effects your swimming pool & spa go to the governments web site at:
