Daily Tasks For Salt Water Pools
There are daily tasks you’ll need to complete to make sure any pool is in the best shape possible. Some of these tasks include:
- Testing chlorine and pH levels
- Checking the skimmer and pump basket and cleaning them out as necessary
Weekly Tasks For Salt Water Pools
There is also regular maintenance that needs to be performed on your salt water pool weekly. A few weekly jobs include:
- Adding your Pure and Simple pouch of cleanse
- Testing your pool’s chlorine and pH levels and adjusting as required
- Checking the sump pit (if you have one) to ensure it is operating properly
Monthly Tasks For Salt Water Pools
In addition to weekly tasks, you’ll have monthly, and even yearly maintenance that will need to be performed to get the most out of your pool. These tasks will differ slightly depending on your pool’s filter.
If your pool has a sand filter, you will need to do the following:
- Remove your sump pump from the pit and clean any debris from the bottom
- Test sump pump operation and return it to the pit
- Bring a 1 litre sample of water into Aqua-Tech for a maintenance analysis
If your pool has a cartridge filter, you will need to perform the added step of removing the System 3 filters from your tank, rinsing off any large debris and letting them air dry before returning them to the tank.
Yearly Tasks For Salt Water Pools
Salt water pools will need to have their filters chemically cleaned, regardless of their type, and any fine particles or other debris will need to be vacuumed. This will protect and prolong the life of your pool’s filter.
