Daily Swimming Pool Operation Guide


  1. POOL FILTER should run at least 8 to 10 hours per day (24 hours per day is best). Set your pool timer or remember to run the pool manually if you don't have a timer. If you are not running your pool 24 hours per day, it is best to have it running during the DAYLIGHT HOURS (instead of night).
  2. Make sure your skimmer baskets are empty and clear of leaves or other debris.
  3. CHLORINE must be added to the pool daily in one of the following ways...
  4. Best method is to place 3" SLOW DISSOLVING chlorine tablets in the skimmers once per week (4-6 tablets are normal for 16x32 pool).
  5. Next best method is to use an AUTOMATIC CHLORINATOR. Make sure the unit is full and that the dial is set to a level that gives you a good daily chlorine reading depending on how long you run your system.
  6. Next best method is to use a CHLORINE FLOATER with SLOW DISSOLVING tabs inside it. Keep floater in pool at all times and refill it weekly.
  7. Next best method is to manually add either GRANULAR CHLORINE or QUICK TABS to pool skimmer every day. Don't forget !
