There is a gauge on the filter that will indicate this. when as the pressure gets higher it indicates that there is a build up of dirt and the filter needs cleaning or backwashing. another indicator is if you note a marked reduction in suction at the static skimmer of the pool.
The cleaning schedules varies from filter to filter, but a general guideline on any swimming pool filter is to take a reading when the filter is clean, then clean the pool filter when the pressure rises about 10 psi.
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.
Well if dirt comes out then you should clean off your feet before you get in,becouse your fet carry it in the pool then when the filter sucks up the dirt then the filter gets too much dirt in it and spits it out and you should proble clean the filter out once a month!
You should run a chlorinator every couple of weeks in your pool in order to keep it clean. Bacteria can grom in your pool and chlorine helps keep it clean.
If you live in a windy area or have debris getting into your pool then you should check the pump basket at least once per week or after you have vaced the pool.
vacuum using the filter.(it should have tubes and an attachment
It depends on many things: How big is the pool the usage, body oils and lotions, size of the filter.... the most often answer is every 5 years. This is for an average pool with an average size filter and use. If you wish you can be more specific to your pool and write down your new clean sand filter back pressure, when that increases after backwashings by 5 PSI, it time to change the sand.
Setting the filter to backwash cleans the filter, running your pump to filter cleans the water in the pool. Brushing the walls of your pool cleans the walls of your pool... and so on.
I have to clean my pool every 2 days.......
If you're talking about your pool filter, it should be set to filter or run. Use the bypass or recirculate setting if you wish to circulate the water without having the water pass through the filter. Use the backwash setting to clean the filter.
When the pressure on the filter pump is above 20 psi.
Having a pool is a fun and time consuming attraction to have in your home. I can tell you that you will have to clean it often and keep a filter in it. Hope i was some help!
With proper chemicals, equipment, and a filter, you will never need to completely replace the water in a pool.
No it either means you have to clean your pool more often or it can mean that the radials in your sand filter are stating to wear and need replacing.
the way that a water filter works is that when you fill the water in the pool the water will go in the filter then come back out as clean water.
i have a intex pool 12x 30 uses filter size A how long should i run the filter for
SHOCK!! Its a powder you can buy at a pool store or chemical store.. its chlorine in powder form, you just dump it in your pool stir it up a bit, wait a day or two, and the pool should be clean.
you clean it like a normal filter off course i could be wrong this is my prediction anyways.,
Probably not get proper pool supplies from your local manufactuar
There is no filter at the bottom of a pool. Perhaps you are looking at the hydrostatic valve which is there in case your pool is emptied and Will make sure that the pool wont float in ground water.
As much as possible. It should always be working to keep the pool clean. If you have small children, you can turn it off for a while for safety. Clean the filter on a regular basis. Turn off and empty in winter if it freezes in your area. Definitely worth researching pool care on internet search engines.
The best way to determine this is to backwash the filter and see what the pressure is at that time. Then go 7-10 PSI above that and this will be your pressure to watch to tell you when to clean your filter.
Clean the filter, enlarge the filter, enlarge the pipes coming from and or to the filter, enlarge the pool pump, If you have a cartrige filter put another one in paralel next to it.
Usually, there is a cylinder shaped canister near the pump. You have to remove top and lift filter out and clean thoroughly with hose.
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.
