Winter Freeze & Your Pool

Freezing temperatures & Pool Equipment generally do not mix well. If the water in your equipment is not moving, it will freeze at 32degrees. Most pool equipment systems have freeze guards. Basically, a freeze guard is a sensor that tells the equipment system to turn on at a certain temperature. Most are around 36 degrees. For a hard freeze or snow, here is one extra precaution you can take to help the pool water from freezing and causing costly damage to your equipment. Cover your equipment with blankets (any old comforters or thick blankets). Make sure NOT to cover the exhaust of the heater, some systems have the heater come on in cold weather. DO cover all pipes, pumps, & filters. You want to create a cocoon of sorts over the equipment, trapping the warmth from the ground & the warmth off the motors. Be prepared for Winter. I have seen this precaution save pool owners thousands of dollars in costly repairs. Best Regards, Lance Ainsworth readmore

Fall is here!

Fall is here!! Now is the time to check the freeze guard on your pool equipment. This preventive maintenance can save you $100s even $1000s of dollars worth of costly repairs during a hard freeze this winter. The best part is, in most cases, it is relatively easy! All you need is a cup of ice. At most equipment control service boxes there is a temperature sensor hanging under on the outside of the control service box . If you do not see one, then most likely it is inside the control box. We DO NOT recommend you remove the face plates on any control service box to locate the temperature sensor. Here is a picture of the two most common types of temperature sensors. First Step: make sure the pool equipment is not running. Second Step: to test the freeze guard place the temperature sensor in the cup of ice or hold a piece of ice on the sensor. If the freeze guard is working, the equipment will come on within 2 to 3 min. If it does not, it is time to have it check by a pool professional. If you have any questions or the freeze guard is not working, feel free to contact us. 972-948-6804. readmore
