Seasonal Care - Spring Clean

  • Test pool water and balance as needed.
  • Check the stabiliser level and add as necessary to prevent chlorine depletion from the effects of sunlight.
  • Shock treat your pool to ensure there is sufficient chlorine for the destruction of Chloramines.
  • If you have a salt chlorinator check the salt level in your pool & add salt if necessary.
  • Check the salt cell (electrode) is clean. You may need to turn up the output gauge if the weather is warm and sunny.
  • Check the pump and clean the basket. Lubricate rubber seals with a silicon based lubricant. Do not use Vaseline or petroleum based lubricant. You may need to increase the pump running time as the weather gets warmer and sunnier.
  • Clean the filter. Now is the time to acid bath your D.E. filter pads or cartridge.
  • Empty the skimmer basket, brush and vacuum the pool.

If your pool has developed an algae problem during the winter, see the Green Pool Treatment sheet.
