Maintenance

It is important to take care of your pool on a weekly basis. Savile's understand it is much more enjoyable to swim in your pool then to maintain it so we offer customized maintenance packages. Or for those of you who enjoy taking the time to maintain your pool, we have included some tips to help you.

 


 

Water Testing

Test your pool/spa water frequently (daily or weekly depending on use) and add chemicals is necessary, following manufactures directions.

Bring a water sample in weekly to the staff at Savile Pool & Spa for your free computerized water analysis. Let Savile's guide you to clean and clear water year round.

 


 

Weekly Pool Maintenance

1. Skim Off Leaves and Debris
Use your leaf skimmer to remove any physical debris from the pool surface. Do this before it sinks to the bottom, where it can be harder to reach and create stains.

2. Brush Walls
Brush the walls in a downward motion to push sediment toward the center of floor so it can be easily vacuumed. Brushing also helps eliminate any algae that may be starting to form.

3. Vacuum
Attach your manual or automatic vacuum head to your vacuum pole and hose. Submerge the vacuum head and hose and let it fill with water, at which point it should sink below the surface. The most common hook up method is through the skimmer, but you can also use a dedicated vacuum line if you have one.

4. Clean Skimmer(s)
You should clean out your skimmer basket weekly or more often if necessary. Removing debris allows the skimmer to operate at maximum efficiency.

5. Check Water Circulation
The circulation system includes the skimmer, pump, drains, and filter. Its’ main purpose is to distribute chemicals throughout the pool and filter out debris. Run your pump long enough each day to ensure proper filtration.

6. Check Filter
The three most popular types of filters - sand, cartridge, and vertical grid DE - screen out debris and particles from you pool water. You should clean and maintain your filter according to the manufacturer's directions.

7. Check Chemicals & Shock
Test your pool water frequently (daily or weekly depending on use) and add chemicals if necessary, following manufacturers' directions. A regular shock treatment cleanses the water of algae, bacteria, swimmer waste and any other organic matter that may have entered the pool. It also prevents bacteria and algae growth, cloudy water, and chlorine odor and eye irritation. You should also top up your pucks and add your weekly preventative algaecide.

 


 

Automatic Pool Cleaners

Step 1: Preparing Your Vacuum:
Your pool may have it’s own dedicated vacuum line, but if not you can hook up your vacuum through your skimmer.
Put the vacuum in the water with all of the hose attached. Let the unit fill up with water. Ensure that the vacuum hose is filled with water as well, which can be done one of two ways. Either put the end of the hose up against a return jet and wait for it to push air out and sink below the surface, or force water through by alternately sinking and lifting the hose.

Step 2: Vacuum Hook-Up
Through Skimmer
Once the line is full of water, send the hose through the skimmer weir and attach the end of the hose to the hole that leads to your pool equipment. If you see two holes in the skimmer, the one furthest from the pool generally leads to your equipment while the other is for the main drain.
Note: Do not coil or roll up automatic pool clearer hose. The sections should be separated and laid flat so that they do not become permanently bent.
