You should shock your pool once per week (we typically recommend at the end of the weekend after the pool gets its’ heaviest usage). Shocking the pool should be done at night once the pool is no longer in use for the day. After shocking the pool keep the pump running over night to circulate the water. The shock will oxidize organic compounds (sweat, sun tan lotion, etc) out of the water to keep the water clear and shimmering. 1 gallon of liquid shock should be used per 10,000 gallons. When should I clean my filter? The answer can vary depending on your filter. A clean filter significantly contributes to keeping your pool in good condition. We recommend checking when the pressure rises to about 10 psi., and then you know it is time to clean your filter. Due to the length of the summer pool season, daily filter cycles can be overworked and lead to a reduction in the filtration. When your filter is not cleaned correctly or efficiently, the flow rate of the circulation system drops. Your pool can also become green, cloudy, and murky due to your filter not being cleaned. At Drewnowski Pools, we recommend you always clean your filter at the beginning of your pool season and before the closing. Why is my pool green? Algae is the most likely cause of your pool turning green. When chlorine levels fall below the recommended levels (1-3ppm in standard chlorine pools, .5-1 ppm in mineral system pools), even for a day, algae can grow. Algae is easy to kill & manage using a combination of shock and algaecide. The amounts needed vary depending on pool size and amount of algae growth. What makes shock different than chlorine? Shock is chlorine. It can be found in liquid or powder form (we recommend liquid). The difference between shock and chlorine tabs is that shock is used to immediately bring up the chlorine levels in the pool and chlorine tabs are used to maintain the recommended chlorine levels in the pool (typically the tabs are put into an automatic chlorinator or floater). How do I know if my pool has a leak? What do I do if my pool has a leak? Pools naturally lose water over time. If your pool is losing far more water than you would expect, it may have a leak.

They are available for installation during our flexible and convenient hours available. Sand filters: The pool water is sent through a bed of filter sand and removed through lateral tubes. When the water is pushed through, the dirty particles rises and the clean water exits at the bottom. Cartridge filters: Your pool water is sent through a filter material. The filter captures the dirt and debris, letting the clean water pass through. Diatomaceous earth (DE) filters: DE Filters trap more particles than other filters. Diatomaceous earth – a porous powder coats your filter grid preventing small particles from passing through.
