- Pool Start-Up Shocking -- If you are opening your pool yourself, here's a tip. Before starting
up the swimming pool filter system after a long
winter, you should shock the pool water with ten
times the normal dose of liquid shock that you
would use to shock.
- Season's First Water Test --
Run filter 48 - 72 hours straight before you bring
your water sample to our store for testing. Water sample should be taken approximately 12" below
surface. Use a clean sample bottle.... rinse it in the pool water a couple of times before pulling the sample.
- Filter Inspection -- When opening a pool with
a cartridge or a Diatomaceous earth filter you
should disassemble the filter to make sure the
cartridge or grids are clean and not
torn in any way. If the grids have
a hole in them they will not filter properly.
- Nature 2 Cartridge Change -- Once the pool is
balanced, you should replace your Nature 2 cartridge for the new season. If you do not have one, come
on in and we can explain how easy
they are to install, use and save you more
- Chlorine Generators -- A great new option for sanitization is a chlorine generator. Produce your own chlorine,
no handling or storing or chlorine
- Open Pools With Mesh Cover Early -- If your
pool cover is mesh, opening the pool early (late
April, early May) will prevent an algae bloom.
If this is not practical, pour 3-4 gallons
of liquid shock through the cover to keep the algae at bay.
- Save that Water! -- If your pool cover is solid,
rather that pumping the accumulated water
to waste, add 1 gallon of liquid shock to
water on cover and pump water under
the pool cover. This will save water and
help to "float" the
cover off. Make sure all the debris
and water is removed from the cover
before trying to remove the cover.
