Yes.. As long as no part of the cover can get sucked into your skimmer box and block it. Ensure the cover does not protrude into the skimmer box area and it will be fine.
Generally, that should not be a problem.
Yes, so long as there is water getting to the filter it wont do any harm to have the cover on.
I have done this with my solar cover without any trouble
Run pool filter and pump for 1 hour, to allow chemicals to circulate. Drain the water to skimmer level. Install the pool cover and secure it by tie downs or water bags. Set the pool filter to winter button and if it does not have one keep it to neutral. Open the filter and allow draining out of water and leave the cover open to let moisture evaporate.Plug off and drain the pump, and suck out the remaining water.
i have a intex pool 12x 30 uses filter size A how long should i run the filter for
Yes, you should leave it on. This way the acid will be run through the filter.
Anytime you want to put it in. I leave mine in over the winter, under the pool cover, and ocassionally run it.
Yes, you should run the pump when you add chemicals to your water,
Run the filter when adding any chemical to the pool. It needs to circulate to do its job.
As I read your question - - - you want to put a solar cover over the filter. If you actually mean can you put the solar cover on the pool surface and run the filter and pump too. BTW, the filter does not move the water, the PUMP moves the water. The pump is the only piece of equipment that you would be used to run th ewater thru the filter. The pump is like the heart of the equipment pad. Then yes you can do both. The solar cover when installed as it should be - on the water - has no signifigence with regard to the filter ( the large tank). The purpose of running the pump either with the cover on or off would be to move or circulate the water. With a solar cover on the surface of the water - only the top two feet of the water is warmed. The rest of the pool remains cooler. Circulating the water would move that warm water and mix it with the cooler water. Think about it.
i thaught it was to keep the heat in, so run the pump duiring the day with cover off and then cover the pool at night to keep the heat in the pool . the pump heats water by moving it. friction..pool pump repair guy in longwood fl
you run on you tip toes .
Pool filters do not get cloged the pump is the problem
I take the pool cover off, sun depletes chlorine, also run your filter for about 2 hours a day. Well, certainly running your pump/filter 2 hours per day would bring on the "greenies" in a hurry. It is obsurd to run the filter for only 2 hrs per day unless you had a very small wading pool. 6 to 10 hrs would be the minimum run time. I'd hate to see how clear or sanitary the above persons pool was even after the 2 hr filter run time. Not gonna happen. You will never have a clear as crystal pool water even if you never used the pool. Total bunk on the filter run time.
NO, it is not because if there was a short in the filter and you were in the pool u would get eletricuted and get very hert of die, so run it when no one is in it
No. Leave your filter running at least 8 hours per day, longer if your pool appears cloudy.
As far as I know you run the pool filter daily between 8 - 10 hours depending on the size of your pool. This should be enough time for adequate filtration
If you are using a pool vacuum on an extendable rod just plug the hose into the vacuum plate over the leaf basket behind the static skimmer. Leave the sand filter setting on filter and just run the vac over the pool floor the same as you would a home vacuum cleaner.
Yes you should run your pool at least 12 hours a day.
Heaters are usually plumbed in after the filter. The pool filter/pump is what circulates the heated water. Ans: The heater will not work or fire if the pump is not running.
It's a two part answer. 1) you have to filter your pool........This can be be done by day or nightl as long as you filter 100% of you water once a day or night, that's good 2) Now you know about #1 above, many filter during the night....and they run it that way so they can run it thru a fountain......as it will cool the pool up to 15 degrees over night.
No, The D.E. is used to trap dirt paraticles, all you will do is clog the ropes inside the filter, then you will tear the filter down and soak the ropes with muratic acid for at least 24 hours.And put the filter back together and run it with the D.E.
You could,When it's warmer.
Wack a load of chlorine in it, pronto! This is the beginning of bacteria about to breed at an exponential rate. Leave the pool for a few days and then run the pump and filter until it clears. You have some residue on the pool floor which will need removing.
Add the aluminum sulphate to the pool. Run the filter for two hours. Wait overnight to vacuum the bottom of the pool.
