No,unless you can fit into the filter which is impossible,so yes,its safe.
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.
Yes, the solar pool cover does not effect the filter.
A swimming pool filter can be dangerous because it operates under pressure and can explode.A fastener secures the top of the filter but in some cases the fastener can fail and allow the filter to top to blow off.
Add the aluminum sulphate to the pool. Run the filter for two hours. Wait overnight to vacuum the bottom of the pool.
Yes. Running the pool filter pump while swimming has no adverse effects to the swimmers.
No, turn the filter off so that you do not forget it and drain it past the filter and burn it up.
A pool filter is there to remove particles of foreign matter from the pools water. Without a filter to remove this material it would not take long for the pools water to become cloudy and dangerous to the health of the swimmers.
I assume you have a sand filter if so you most likely have broken laterals in your filter. A lateral should allow water through but not sand. if you have a DE filter and you are getting what appears like sand in the pool, you have one or more of the filter grids that have holes and the DE is passing through the filter grids back to the pool.
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.
If you have a sand filter your laterals are worn these are the spokes at the bottom of the sand filter that allow water through but not sand.
I clean my filter and skimmer basket and leave my pump running. I do not cover my pool. I guess it could depend on the weather in your area and if you have a problem with leaves getting in your pool.
The setting of the sand filter should be on filter for a normal vacuum. However if you are getting rid of the results of using clarifier from the bottom of the pool you would be beter of vacuuming to waste.
If you are getting sand coming into the pool and have a sand filter you may have to replace worn laterals in the sand filter.
Pray for a salt water system
If you are getting sand blowing into the pool through the returns You have a problem with the radials in the sand filter. this will require removing the multiport system from the top of the unit . removing the sand, and replacing the worn radials. Get advice from your pool shop.
Yes, so long as there is water getting to the filter it wont do any harm to have the cover on.
There are ways to clean without draining or running through your filter but they would include the use of a separate filter which would be as much hassle.I would recommend draining the pool and lightly acid washing to properly get out all the mud and bacteria it may have left behind.
If its not closed properly water will leak out when the pump us running.
yes you can, just make sure that no one blocks the skimmer or the water return hole.
not a good idea - the whole point of shock is to circulate it through the system
You don't . You chlorinate the pool with chlorine . You filter the water with a sand filter.
The circ pump is used to circulate the water thru the filter. The booster pump is for running the pool sweeper.
There is no diference. There are different types of pool filters, but it has more to do with how they filter then their application or location.
The filter doesn't run, the pump does. A good rule of thumb is that the pump be sized so as to turn the entire amount of water in the pool over in 8 hours.
To maintain a small Intex pool you will need a filter, pool vacuum, pool test kit, net, and chemicals. Keep the filter running to clean the water, test the water daily. Adjust chemicals for chlorine, and PH. Use the net to scoop out leaves and debris as needed, vacuum the pool as needed as well.
