Seasonal Maintenance

The pool equipment requires more in-depth maintenance on a periodic basis.  These are preventative maintenance items that help to extend the life of the equipment and insure dependable operation. 

1.  Pool Filter

DE Filters - disassemble and manually clean every six months

Sand Filters - change the sand every 3-5 years

Cartridge Filters - replace the cartridges every 3-5 years

2.  Backwash Valve - disassemble and lubricate the seals on the valve with silicone based lubricant.  This will help them to operate smoothly and avoid premature wear and tear.

3.  Valves - make sure the valves operate smoothly and fairly easily.  Some valves can be disassembled and lubricated.  The newer never-lube style valves should not be lubricated.

4.  Heater - clean debris out of the heater and make sure it operates properly.  More information.

5.  Poolsweep - check for wear and replace wear items as needed.  More information.

6.  Salt System - remove the cell and inspect for scale.  Lightly acid wash if needed.

7.  Electronic Control Systems - replace the backup battery once each year (if applicable).

8.  Freeze Protector - test the sensor with ice to make sure it turns the equipment on.
