Preventative Maintenance to Protect Your Pool's Plumbing
Preventative maintenance is critical in extending the life of your pool's plumbing, equipment, and PVC piping. Ignoring these components all but ensures they will break down over time. Taking preventative measures can extend the life of your system, saving you money over time. Some common pool maintenance services that can be extremely effective include pool chemistry, filter servicing, pool cleaning, pump basket cleaning, skimmer basket cleaning, and more. With the constant Florida sun, it is challenging to keep your PVC piping and pool equipment protected in the shade. That continuous sun exposure and intense heat wear down components causing them to crack and leak. We can help you determine whether relocating your pool equipment is the right choice to utilize shade effectively.
Your Pool's Plumbing Components
Your pool's plumbing components are a team. No one part is more important than the other because they all do something different. They all play a role in keeping your pool water moving in and out to keep it clean and swimmable. Let's take a quick look at each of your pool's plumbing components:
- Skimmer – The water enters your pool's plumbing system through the skimmer on the inner wall of the pool. The skimmer basket collects large debris so it can't enter the plumbing lines. The skimmer may have a door called a weir.
- Suction Lines – When the water passes through the skimmer it enters the suction line. This plumbing pipe is typically made from PVC. Its entry point is connected to the skimmer, and its endpoint is connected to the pump.
- Pump – Pool water needs assistance moving through the suction lines, which is where the pool pump comes in. The pump creates suction power to move the water through the suction line from the skimmer. The pump is basically the heart of your pool. The pump can easily become damaged if it runs dry, so make sure your water level is high enough to enter the skimmer continually. At the same time, the water should not completely cover the skimmer.
- Filter – Pool water enters the filter to be cleaned after leaving the pump. Pool filters can remove everything from large debris such as bugs and leaf litter to smaller items like bacteria and hair.
- Return Lines – Once the water is clean, it returns back into your pool through the return lines. These pipes made of PVC extend from the filter to the pool return.
- Return – Also called jets or return jets, the returns are small openings located around the pool wall. Clean water reenters the pool through these returns. They should be continually circulating your pool water.
- Main Drain – All inground swimming pools have a main drain located at the bottom of the deep end. Some pools have more than one main drain. It's recommended never to completely drain your pool on your own because it can cause damage. If you need your pool drained for repair, cleaning, or painting, consult with a professional, so you don't damage or ruin your swimming pool.
