Q: How can I tell if my pool has a leak?
A: Simply fill a bucket with pool water and put it in the pool so that the water level of the bucket and the pool are the same. If the water level in the pool is lower than the
water level in the bucket after one week, you probably have a leak. This method is relatively reliable, because the condensation behavior is the same in both tanks.
Q: What can I do if I have algae?
A: Usually, algae is not hazardous to your health. Although algae might not present a health risk, it can make the water in your pool look dirty and green, thus negatively impacting your pool enjoyment. By maintaining proper water chemistry, enough circulation, and regular cleanings, this will help reduce and eliminate most types of algae growth.

Q: How many hours per day should my pump operate?
A: That all depends on factors such as the size of your pool, swimmer load, efficiency of your pump, the filter flow rate, etc. As a rule of thumb, however, a properly sized pool pump should probably run 8 to 10 hours a day in the summer, and 4 to 6 hours a day in the winter to provide adequate turnover. If you are using a variable speed pump running a half speed, you would run twice as long (16 to 20 hours a day in the summer and 8 to 12 hours a day in the winter).
