5 Easy Steps to Pool Openings

#1 |  Drain water from the top of the cover.

  • Use a siphon hose or small cover pump.
  • Be careful to not drain water from the pool through the cover.
  • Once most of the water is removed, you can raise the water level in the pool and then remove the cover. ( or)
  • Clean the cover while its still on the pool.
  • A wet/dry vacuum works good for removing the last amounts of water from the cover.
  • Use BioGuard stow-away to clean the cover & then store it in a large garbage container in a diluted solution of stow away & water.

#2 |  Insert all baskets at skimmer and pump, insert all plugs & pressure gauge & gently tighten.

  • Lubricate all o-rings & gaskets with a non petroleum based lube.

#3 |  Before turning on pump be sure that it is primed. Pour water into the pump basket until water enters the line to the pool, then secure the lid. 

#4 |  Turn on pump with the filter set on backwash. 

#5 |  Run until the backwash water clears, turn the pump off & set to rinse, run until water is clear. Now you are ready to filter.

  • Never change the position on your filter with the pump running.
