We recommend that a regular residential pools be cleaned once a week.
Does chlorine prevent all recreational water illnesses?
Chlorine in swimming pools kills the germs that may make people sick, but it takes time. Chlorine in properly disinfected pools kills most germs that cause RWIs within minutes. However, it takes longer to kill some germs such as Cryptosporidium that can survive for days in even a properly disinfected pool.
How often should I clean my filter cartridges?
Times vary depending on size, use, and the amount of debris getting in your pool. A good average is to clean them every 6 months and replace them every couple of years.
How long should I run my circulation pump?
This depends on the size of your pool but I find running the circulation pump between 6-8 hours during the winter and 8-10 hours during summer when its in use is a good place to start.
How often should I backwash my sand filter?
I usually try to do this once a month. A more accurate way to determine if it needs it is to check the pressure gauge at the top of the filter.

Recently bought a home with a pool and was clueless on operation and maintenance. John came over checked out the entire pool and filter system. Pointed out what was wrong and what was right. He quickly repaired all problems at a reasonable price and coached me on how to properly operate, clean and maintain our pool. I also retained his services. He is honest, reasonably priced, and personable - a true professional. A rare find these days.
Very professional, very punctual, my pool has never looked this good.
