SWIMMING POOL OPERATION
During the spring, it is advisable to begin the preparations for the pool after winter to have all the time to deal with unexpected problems.
If you maintain the pool during the winter, restarting for the new season will be a very easy job.
1. If you have a cover, the first thing to do is to remove it, wash it carefully, and allow it to dry in the air. It is advisable to use the cover until the start of the swimming season. This will protect the water from being dirty and will act as a protection for any uninvited visitor.
2. The second step is to wash the filters using a chemical. If the sand in your filter is over 3 years it is advisable to change it before the bathing season.
3. All installed fittings should be checked. Check the skimmer carefully, place the baskets, control the overflow channel and overflow grill. If you have lights check if they work and also check and the junction boxes have water.
To clean the surface of the walls use soft materials and not those that can injure them. Use chemical solvents of the salts to easily clean the walls.
4. You can clean the bottom with the broom as long as there is at least 40cm of water.
5. Check the handles, stairs, ditches and stairs and repair them with the appropriate repair and polishing products.
6. Finally, even if you conserved water in the winter, you need to renew the 1/3 of the pool water for the new season. The water should then be chlorinated with chlorine shock to completely disinfect.
MAINTENANCE OF THE SWIMMING POOL
A good maintenance of your pool will keep it in excellent condition for the whole bathing season with the smooth operation of the machines, filters etc.
A well designed private pool needs weekly maintenance less than 20 minutes at a time.
Elements such as safety, ambient washing, chemical storage, engine room cleaning, and fencing around the pool are important elements to make your pool a safe place for fun and relaxation.
WHAT WORK SHOULD HAVE BEEN ONE DAILY?
1. Removal of leaves, bugs and other floating elements in the water.
2. Check the pH and adjust it to 7.2 - 7.4 if necessary. If you use an automatic PH regulator, try keeping it at these levels.
3. Check the level of residual free chlorine and adjust the level between 0.5-2ppm using engineered chlorites or floating chlorinators while maintaining the above levels.
WEEKLY OPERATIONS TO BE CARRIED OUT
1.Check the bottom well, the skimmer baskets and the overflow channel.
2.Create the pump pre-filter to prevent water flow and reduce pump efficiency.
3. Check the pressure of the filters and make backwash of the sand of the filters. This process is necessary to keep the sand in good condition and filter performance at high levels.
4.Cleaning walls and bottom of the pool with a broom or robot.
5.Add the necessary algeocide whenever necessary.
6. Place the necessary chlorine tablets in the skimmer and chlorinators.
7. Check the PH level, disinfectant devices and flocculant if you use automatic devices.
When the water temperature of the pool falls below 15⁰C, we must take the following measures.
1. Carefully clean the walls by scrubbing them to clean them with any salt that you collect with the broom. We clean the pump pre-filter and the skimmer carts so that there are no sheets or other elements in them.
2. Check the PH to be between 7.2-7.4 using the PH- or PH + counterparts.
3.Climate the swimming pool.
4.Operation of the pool 4-8 hours to dissolve and spill the chemicals you added to the pool water.
5.On the next day, clean the filter using a softener. Put ½ kg of material in the pump pre-filter or skimmer. Activate the pump and filter in the Filter position to dissolve and the liquid in the filter. Then stop the pump and let the product act for an hour and then proceed to a very good backwash.
6. If your pool is with liner, fiberglass or polyester add the copper-free winter product. Do not use ordinary products for winter because they contain metals, which can destroy the surface finish of the pool.
7. Allow the filter to run for 4-8 hours to dissolve the material in the water.
8.In the cases where the pool is in low temperature countries, lower the water level under the skimmer, empty all pipework and filter and place floating wood panels in the water to act as ice pressure suppressors.
9.In hot climates, activate the filters at regular intervals.
10.To protect the pool surface from various floating sheets, dust etc., place a cover.
It is important to place the special materials for the winter and mid-winter.
For swimming pools with chlorite salts the following treatment of water is recommended.
1. If the water temperature is above 15 ° C, the chlorinator should work sufficiently for the chlorine level to be at 0.5-1pmm adjusting manually or automatically PH to 7.2-7.4. The lower the temperature, the less filters need to work.
2.If the water temperature is below 15⁰C, you should follow the steps below.
3. Disconnect the chlorite salt from the current and remove the cells from their case. Clean the plates with salt solvents wet.
4.Save the blisters in dry and sheltered space.
5. If you have the PH and Redox electronics, unplug the electrodes from the electrodes in their cases or in a special solution.
Their life span is 1 to 2 years. The electrodes should be kept at 10-30 ° C.
ADVANTAGES OF CHLORINE SALT
HOW CHLORINE SALT IS OPERATING
Chlorinated salts added a new dimension to the philosophy of chemical treatment of pool water. As they improve water quality, they do not require the use of chemicals and make maintenance easier.
THE PROCESS OF CHLORINE SALT
1. Place about 4-5 grams of salt, either coarse or coarse for each liter of water (nine times less salt than sea salt and very close to tear).
2.When the salt dissolves in the water, the electric current passes through the water through the plates and the salt is converted to chlorine due to electrolysis, since oxygen is also produced.
So now there is enough disinfectant in the water to kill any micro-organism that is likely to float on it.
When chlorine performs its role, the disinfectant is again converted into salt. This means that the amount of salt in the water stays stable and only very sparse intervals need adding salt due to the water lost from the backwash.
