Spool Maintenance Tips & Tricks

As you are looking into spool maintenance, you should know that the easiest way to take care of your pool is to hire a pool service company. Although, this might not be an option for everyone, and in that case there are a few ways to keep up with your own spool maintenance.

Filtration for Your Small Pool

You need to understand that circulation is the most important thing when it comes to spool maintenance. You need to pay attention to circulation pumps since they are very important for keeping your pool fresh and clean. If you have good pool circulation you don’t have to be so worried about cloudy water or algae that might want to grow in your pool. If you have a proper filtration system it will be easy to filter the water in your small pool.

When your pools water is circulating properly, it is stirring up the chemicals in the water so they can be applied evenly. Depending on how much money you have to spend each month, you should allow your filter to keep going as long as possible. While it would be nice for the filter to run 24/7, that isn’t always possible, so make sure to run it as long as you can and then keep an eye on it to make sure that you are doing it long enough. 12 hours would be the minimum for running your pool pump.

As you look into spool maintenance, you will see that there are different types of pumps for your pool like single speed pumps, dual speed pumps and of course variable speed pumps. Each of these has different purchase prices as well as costing more or less on the spool maintenance end of things.

The pool pump and filters are very important as you are looking into your pool maintenance since they go hand in hand. The filter helps with dirt and debris removal so make sure to keep it in proper working condition by back washing the filter regularly.
