Spring Tips

Skimmer basket

Pool Equipment

  • Make sure pool cleaners are in tip top shape 
  • Install in-line canister on suction vacuum systems to prevent clogs from occurring in plumbing
  • Clean pump baskets often. Full pump basket will cause your pool pump to burn out prematurely
  • Install pump cover to protect water from entering pump. We sell them for about $35 and they'll help your pump last years longer.
  • Check skimmer basket and gate in skimmer to make sure there both are in peak shape and ready for fall debris.
  • Upgrade your equipment with Wight Water Pools 645-1969 to save $70-$100 a month on energy.

Pool Chemistry

  • Check your water balance at least once a week 
  • Use a DPD type test kit that test free chlorine. Avoid the ones that only test dead and free chlorine combined
  • Shock pool after rain or when heavy debris enter water
  • Don't overuse tablets they can cause your C.Y.A. to skyrocket which will keep chlorine from being less effective
  • Don't use chemicals from big box stores or on-line they have a lot of additives and are not as strong.


  • Start adding a preventive algaecide in pool when temperatures reach above 80 degrees
  • Seal cracks in deck and gaps in pool to prevent water from eroding dirt around pool
  • Clean leaves, weeds etc. around pool equipment to prevent fire, and unwanted pest.
  • Store chemicals in dry area where rain can not get to them. Water can cause chlorine to react and cause a fire.
  • Never store acid and chlorine together it can make a lethal gas.
