Salt Water Pool Info

Salt water swimming pool technology has come a long way in the last few years. With all of the equipment manufacturers marketing these systems today, we have had a good opportunity to see how these systems perform in the field. Over the past couple of years Palm Tree Pools has come to offer two brands of salt water pool chlorination, the Pentair IntelliChlor, or the Goldline Aqua Rite depending on each specific installation. We offer these two brands knowing that they are more easily diagnosed and maintainable for the home owner, or service person.

The team here at Palm Tree Pools is firm believers that swimming pools and swimming pool owners will benefit greatly with the advantages of having salt water pool automation. Whether you choose the Pentair IntelliChlor or the Goldline Aqua Rite these two chlorine generators offer clear sparkling water, reduced eye and skin irritation, and you no longer have to store excess chemical. The chlorine is produced by the salt daily dependant on the pool’s chlorine needs, reducing chemical maintenance. This is going to give the swimming pool or spa a steady stream of chlorine rather than spiking it once a week and then having it go low a few days later.

Swimming Pool Cover Removal

Have your pool cover free of water and debris. The most important thing you can do in order to facilitate the opening process is to have your pool cover as free of water and debris as possible.  Although we are equipped to remove large or small amounts of water and debris from covers, the time to open a pool is significantly reduced if the cover surface is clean and dry.

Do not mistakenly pump water from the pool. If you decide to remove water from the pool cover, be careful that you do not mistakenly pump water from the pool itself.  It has been our experience that light weight poly covers can allow a minimal exchange of water between the pool cover surface and the pool itself.  Also, a minor hole in the cover can allow a much greater exchange of water.  When pumping water from the cover, we strongly recommend that the water level on top of the cover be monitored closely to avoid pumping a large amount of water from underneath the cover.  Resecuring the cover to make it more taut  when the water on top of the cover is reduced can help eliminate erroneous removal of  pool water.

A Helpful Hint: If the area that you are pumping the water to is lower than the level of the pool cover, you can start a siphon by running the pump for a few minutes until water starts flowing and then turning the pump off.  Once the siphon is started, water  will continue to flow even though the pump is not running.  As above, we recommend that you monitor the water level on top of the cover to avoid removing water from the pool.
