It’s easy to get yourself thinking about ways to enjoy a swimming pool. What might not always be considered is the maintenance that goes into keeping pools in good condition. One such area that requires regular maintenance is your pool filter. But what goes into maintaining these crucial aspects of your pool? Here are some of the maintenance procedures you should follow to keep your pool filter in top shape.
Keep Your Pool Clean
If you want your pool filter to stay clean, it all starts with a clean pool. Ridding the pool of dirt, bugs, and leaves helps keep your filter from accumulating too much debris of its own. Since we’re in fall and leaves are falling more often, you’ll want to use a leaf skimmer every other day so that you can collect whatever debris has accumulated on the surface of your pool.
Pool Filter Pressure
Initially, water won’t have much difficulty passing through your pool filter. As time passes, however, your filter will begin to accumulate debris, which will start to clog it and cause the pressure to go up. Cleaning your filter from time to time is helpful because removing debris will lower pressure and allow water to pass through the filter more easily again.
Get Your Pool Filter Sealed Up
When you have a pool filter, it’s important to check on your sealer. The sealer that surrounds the filter has to be in solid shape and clamped down as it should be. When you have a damaged seal, debris will be able to get through it.
In addition, you need your filter baskets to remain in good shape. If these are broken, it also allows debris to get into your filter and cause problems.
Check on your sealer and filter baskets regularly so you can catch damage whenever it occurs. Otherwise, more severe issues could occur down the road.
