Do You Know Your Pool Parts?

Knowing what makes your pool run can help you keep your pool maintained with less effort. Spotting small problems or issues in these pool parts before they become big problems can save you a lot of time, money and hassle down the road.

So what are a few of them? 🤷‍♀️


So you all probably know about the pump. It’s in the name, it pumps water. Essentially what it does is drain water from the pool through the filter to be cleaned and back into the pool again. This leads us to the filter…


Again most people have heard of a filter and pool owners will defiantly know about them. There are a few different types but all work to clean the water that has been drained in through the pump. Keeping the filter clean and checking it for debris regularly will help extend the life of the filter and keep your pool water clearer.


These are the things at the bottom, similar to a bath, that sucks out the debris that sinks to the bottom of the pool. They often have a cover but it is important to keep them clear and notice if there is a build-up around it. This may suggest there is a blockage and it isn’t working as it should.


Where the drains work on collecting debris from the bottom, skimmers are designed to collect debris from the top. Again if you notice that the water is stagnant around these or there is a large amount of debris here you may need to check that it is all flowing correctly.

Checking these parts every other day as you head outside to hang the wash out can help prevent any major servicing or problems.
