Pool Tips for Cloudy Water

If you have a sand filter and the water is always cloudy, then you may be in need of a extra strong backwash to get rid of dirt captured in bottom of sand. If we have a pump we may be able to clean the filter by swapping your pump with a stronger flow rate pump.  This will lift the sand bed and remove the dirt.  Then we can place your pump back on the system.  This may save you a costly sand change!  Generally I will perform this on filters 5 – 10 years old and has worked numerous times.

The cost for this service is a minimum of $120 gst incl.

Our charge for a sand change on a 600mm filter is $300 with labour and sand.

Liquid starver is a must if algea or black spot is visible!  On a 40kl pool, 1 litre of starver poured in skimmer over 2 days whilst the pump is running will help reduce algae, black spot growth.

The spots must be brushed with a stainless wire brush to get best results.


What is Starver

Starver is an algae preventative, not an algaecide, Starver works by removing phosphate from the water, thus depriving algae of an essential nutrient.

Starver is especially useful for pools where high leaf fall constantly add nutrients to the water, or when algae blooms occur frequently.

Pump Installation Check List

  1. Pressure gauge – What pressure is the filter at?
  2. Length of pump suction run, from skimmer on side of pool to pool pump.
  3. Size of pipe.  It will measure either 47mm or 57mm.
  4. If the pump is taken away. Will the pool drain?
  5. Size of the filter diameter or model.
