Who do you use to maintain your swimming pool. We are about to purchase a home with a in ground pool and would like information. Thanks 

Max01 --- 5 years ago -

We do it ourselves, it's pretty simple.

We like to put water in ours..

Is it a chlorine pool or salt system?

If it's a salt system, it's easy to do it yourself. Sweep it once a week and take a water sample in to Texas Tom's for testing (it's free!) and Tom will tell you if/or what you need. Maintain the water level and set the pump/filter to run accurately - depending on the number of gallons your pool holds, will determine the run hours. That too, Tom can tell you how many hours and when to run the pump.

I know nothing about a chlorine pool.

Chlorine is also simple. Two tablets every four days, shock once a week, empty the skimmers every other day, empty the bag on the Polaris and you will be fine.

Backflush at 30PSI. Run filter 10 hours a day and Polaris about 8.

Does anyone have a solar powered pool?

troublefreepools.com has the answer to any possible question you might have about pools. There is a "pool school" and a forum where you can ask questions and get answers from experts. We have a chlorine pool and we use clorox, baking soda, and borax. It's called the bbb method and it has worked fabulous for us!

I never shock but use 4 oz of No Mor Problems weekly. I have an auto-chlorinator that I just keep full. I only run my Polaris about 3 hours/day. Quart of Metal Out Jan, Apr, Jul, Oct.

My pressure never rises to 30 psi so if I listened to you I'd never backwash. I try to backwash once/month.

Obviously that depends on size of pool, size of filter, filter media, pump flow and pressure.

No Mor Problems is MAGIC! Expensive, but you can use half of the given amount. You will notice a big difference in algae growth especially after a heavy rain. The key to doing your own is to keep up with the chemicals. Texas Tom is the best!

I use No Mor but I buy it on Amazon cost about $20 a bottle. Since using No Mor we haven't had to shock our pool in about a year.
