Pool Maintenance FAQs
Q: How do I know how long to run my pool pump for?
A: It depends. The piping size, pool size, and swimmer load determine how long you should run your pool pump for. Typically, it's safe to run your pump for about one hour for every ten degrees of temperature.
Q: How do I know when to clean my pool filter?
A: The pool filter plays an important role in keeping your pool sanitary. There are different kinds of pool filters and they each require regular cleaning and the more you use your pool the more often it will probably need to be cleaned. If you find an increase in flow between the pressure gauge and flow meter, that could sign you to clean your filter.
Q: How do I know if my pool has too much chlorine in it?
A: If your pool looks cloudy, it could mean there is too much chlorine in it. If you are unsure about the chlorine levels in your pool, it's best to call a professional pool maintenance company at the Lake of the Ozarks and consult with them. Too much chlorine in your pool could cause the following:
- Red eyes for swimmers
- Skin irritation for swimmers
- Greenish looking hair for blonde haired swimmers
