Follow the routine outlined in our Guide for hassle free pool care:

  • Run the filter pump at least 8-12 continuous hours a day. Many water problems can be prevented if you do not skimp on the filter operation.
  • Backwash the filter regularly according to manufacturer’s instructions or guidelines. Clean out the skimmer and pump strainer basket as needed. Chemically clean your filter at least twice a season with a poolife® Filter Cleaner.
  • Be a good housekeeper. Perform the routine tasks faithfully, keeping all equipment and the area around the pool clean. Skim the surface daily, brushing the pool walls and bottom regularly. Vacuum as needed.
  • Water Testing: Follow the timetable on page 17 of our Guide for water testing, using either your poolife® 6-Way Test Strips or your pool dealer’s water lab, as suggested.
For all of the pool care advice we offer here, please keep in mind that your professional poolife® Dealer is best qualified to help you address any pool care concerns.
