Trust your pool with Oxnard Pool Service. Pools like houses and automobiles require repairs and extra work every now and them. There are quite a few parts that have to work correctly in order for the pool to operate like it is supposed to. Pools have a very simple but important filtration system. Pools usually use a single D.E. filter with about 8 grids to filter out debris that goes through the pump and the basket.  Filters measure the overall pressure in pounds per square inch or PSI. The general rule of thumb is once the pressure gauge raises 10 PSI from the clean start pressure it is due for a filter clean.

The time in between filter cleans depends on how dirty the pool usually gets and how many people use the pool. However, the average pool needs to be cleaned every three months if you live in Oxnard, Ca.

SALT CELLS

The next most common repair that happens on a regular schedule would be salt cell cleans. Salt cells need to remain clean to ensure the salt is properly chlorinating the pool. Cleaning salt cells is very simple but it is important that we get it clean. Improper cleaning can easily damage or even destroy a salt cell which is a big investment that you don’t want to have to replace.

Arguably the most important part to any pool would be the pool pump. There are many different types and brands of pools pumps. Regular maintenance of your pool pump is very important. Pool pumps tend to leak as they get older. The seals inside tend to fail. Pump seals can be replaced at a lot lower price than the cost of buying a new pump. Other things such as gaskets for the pump can fail over time but can easily be fixed. Make sure to call your local pool service if you notice anything weird with your pump before it is too late.

 

HOW DOES A POOL SYSTEM WORK?

Pools can seem very overwhelming to the untrained average person. However, they are very simple and easy to understand once you break them down. Oxnard Pool service has over 25 years experience with all types of pools. Although there aren’t many complex parts they all must do their job right in order for the pool to stay usable and presentable. Any little failure and the pool can start turning green in days.

Let’s start off at the pool. The water in the pool needs to be balanced to ensure it is safe for people to use and so that the parts in the pool don’t corrode. The water in the pool gets sucked in through the skimmer that is usually located on one side of the pool. The rest of the water is sucked in through the drain that is located at the bottom deepest part of the pool. Once it is in the pipes it goes into the pool pump. The pump spins and creates a great amount of pressure that cycles the volume of water in the pool.

After it goes through the pool pump it is pushed into the filter. Inside the filter it goes through grid that are usually coated with D.E. This removes the dirt and impurities in the water. After that it flows through the heater  – if the pool has one- and then the salt cell –  if applicable – After that the water returns through the spa drain usually or the pool drain if there is no spa.
