never. If you have a problem with the water in your pool, there are many chemicals avalible to help you. go to your local pool store with a water sample and ask for help. they can test your water and tell you exactly what you need to do.

With proper chemicals, equipment, and a filter, you will never need to completely replace the water in a pool.

how often are you to change the cartridge in a pump for an above the ground pool

You only need to change the water in your swimming pool when the chemical tests that you should be performing come up bad. Also, common sense is a factor- if your pool is dirty or has loads of bugs or moss, than clean, new water would be great.

Generally you might drain a pool about every 5 to 8 years. In places where the water is very hard, it is advisable to change the water every 1 to 3 years.

Call the pool store where you purchase pool cartridges and ask how often you should change it. Replacement depends on the size of the pool and how it is used, as well as the type and size of the cartridge. The packaging may have some info, but call the pool store if you need more details.

They should have a pool of water available at all times.

With the correct chemicals and circulation,the water should never need to be replaced.

Very rarely as a mater of fact only in an emergency most problems with pool water can be overcome with the right treatment. Take a sample of water into the local pool shop and get their opinion, this is usually a free service A: In Calif. - average about every 5 to 8 yrs. k

if its a kiddy pool yes. If its an inground pool or a large above ground liner pool, no Take a sample of your water to a pool store you trust. Ask them to test "TDS and calcium hardness" If they are high then you probably need to change some or all of your water. Be aware it's DANGEROUS to drain pools if your water table is high or when the ambient temp is high.

How to change to salt water pool

How often to shock your pool depends on what the water temperature is and I am assuming you are using chlorine tablets as a sanitizer. If you are using a salt generator you really do not need to shock unless you are starting up for the season or you are having a water quality issue. So here are the parameters for shocking your pool. If your water temperatures are below 50� Fahrenheit you should shock the pool once every 4 weeks. If your water temperatures are 50-69� you should shock the pool every 2 weeks. If your water temperatures are 70� you should shock your pool every week. Shock your pool if you have had a heavy rainstorm where you have to drain water out of the pool. A storm like this will drop algae, food for algae and other contaminates into the pool water. Sock your pool if you have an algae or water clarity problem.

Varies, depending on usage and chemical balance. Keeping your pool clean using tools such as our pool maintainece kitwill also assist in prolonging the cycle for changing the water in you pool.

yes you can but with water and electric you should have someone that is insured do the switch it would be much safer

Not too often as it tends to block up filters unles you vacuum to waste.

Before TDS and calcium hardness reach high levels.

There is no specific set time that you should change your filter. I would check mine on a weekly basis and if it was dirty I would replace it.

Only as often as needed to remove debris from the bottom. Not very often in an indoor pool.

I cant see why it should be drained and given a chlorine bath at all. If there is no problem with the water or the looks of the pool leave it alone.

Firstly, if you choose to convert your pool to the salt-water (saline) system, you will not need to drain the pool as often as if you were manually chlorinating the pool. Secondly, the mild salinity of the water is probably less than the salinity of the ground-water in your area. I do not know of any common plants, grass etc which would be harmed by the 3000-4500ppm salinity of your pool water.

You don't have to change the pool filter for years Unless it gets damaged. You do however have to clean the pool filter whenever the presure leading to the filter gets too high. This indicates a dirty filter that is not allowing water to get through effectively.

Pool water rarely gets changed as there are few problems that require draining and refilling. Whether the pool contains salt or not is irrelevant. You certainly don't want to spend money on chemicals just to dump them out with the water out later.

You should fill in the pool. A dead frog will ruin your pool forever.
