A pool is a hugely pricy investment. To get the most out of your purchase, and to make sure you and your family can enjoy all the benefits of owning a pool, it’s imperative that you take care of your pool properly. Here are some tips to keep your pool in the best shape possible with the help of a pool repair service.
First, it is suggested that you run your filter 8-12 hours a day. This is essential for maintaining good pool circulation. In an ideal world, you would run the filter 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is because your pool, just like your body, is at its peak with optimal circulation. However, since running your filter constantly is not realistic and would cost heaps of money, running it 8-12 hours a day is a good compromise. This will keep your pool running efficiently without costing you wild amounts of money in the process.
You also need to pay attention to the angles of the jets in your pool. It’s suggested that you angle your jets in a downward direction, and have them spinning in a clockwise motion. If you have a skimmer right next to your return jet, the return jet should face away from your skimmer. This creates a whirlpool effect and gets back into your skimmer. This is essential for the circulation of your pool.
