As a general rule of thumb, run your pool circulation pump 1 hour for every 10 degrees of ambient air temperature.
For example, if it’s 80 degrees outside, the pump should run approximately 8 hours.
Maintain your pool water level halfway up the skimmer box opening.
Normally, a pool should lose no more than 1/4 inch of water per day. If you notice a greater loss, suspect a leak.
Loose tiles or cracks in the pool deck may be an indication of a leaking pool.
Cracks and gaps in the bond beam may be an indication that your pool is leaking. If you notice water-saturated soils in the area around the pool, pool pumps or plumbing, your pool may be leaking.
If you see bubbles in the return water when the pool’s pump is running, it’s likely there’s a leak in the suction side of the filtration system.
Interested in a solar blanket? A Solar Pool Cover is the least expensive kind of swimming pool cover. They are also called solar blankets. Solar Pool Covers or Blankets resemble giant sheets of bubble wrap. The bubbles trap heat from the sun and transmit the heat to the pool, keeping the water temperature warm and inviting. The solar cover also helps to trap the heat of the water and prevents its escape into the cool night time.
