Everyone loves to have a swimming pool at their backyard, but are people ready to go through a regular cleaning and maintenance?
There are so many people who do not give much importance to pool maintenance. However, they are unaware of the fact that the pool pump is definitely the chief engine to your pools filtration and circulation system.
If you want your swimming pool to stay tidy and clean, it is essential for you to carry on with regular pool maintenance services and make sure that the pump is always in proper working condition.
Make sure that you do follow a regular pump maintenance work done. It will help your pool to look attractive, genuinely clean and appear inviting. Here are some steps or ways to maintain your pool:
• Check the level of water
You should regularly monitor that your pool has a standard water level, every time. If the level of water goes extremely low, then it is possible that the pump will start running dry and loose it prime. In this way the motor of your pump or the pump itself will get damaged.
• Skimmer baskets should be kept clean
Ensure that your skimmer basket is in a clean state and free of debris. In case you do not heed attention to your skimmer basket and is neglected, then it will get filled with unwanted debris. This will sooner or later confine smooth flow of water to the pump and this way the motor or the pump will eventually get damaged. Congested or blocked skimmer baskets will ultimately lead to improper filtration together with water clarity problems. You will also notice algae blooming from every corner with water of the pool getting cloudy and dirty. This is why every pool owner should ensure that their skimmer basket is cleaned regularly especially during windy days and with backyards which have a lot of plants and trees.
• Cleaning the Pump Basket
Just as the skimmer basket, the pump basket too must be maintained and cleaned regularly. It will always keep you at a safer zone.
• Prime the Pool Pump
Every time the lid of the pump gets removed and then reinstalled at the cleaning phase, make sure that the pump gets filled with water till the upper most part of the inlet before you get the pump restarted. All that you need to do is use a small basket or the hose and then add water to the pump. This will be quite useful for the pump when it starts and it will avert it from running dry for a lengthy time span.
