Rain and your skimmer box

So it is raining, which is good for the farmers and topping up your pool. However, did you know if your pool is too full, it may stop your skimmer box from working?

It is recommended you have your water level between one-third and one-half up the skimmer box opening. If the level is higher it may slow or even stop debris being pulled into the skimmer box through the plate or valve (if you have a Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner), meaning floating debris will be left on your pool water surface.

Please ensure you check your water level regularly, even during winter, and drain or backwash to ensure your pool surface is bug and dirt free.

Note: If you have garden beds near your pool, run off of debris can affect your water quality and balance. If you need a local pool professional to help check your water, why not visit one of our friendly local stores? All you need to do is enter your postcode.
