Emptying Out Debris Baskets - Leaves
Your pool has its own automatic processes for keeping itself clean. To some extent, it works well for itself and advances in technology have made pool cleaning a smoother process than it used to be. Your pool still needs to be cared for however, and those same automatic processes need to be checked in on a regular basis. Your debris baskets are an important process of your pool’s filtering system, as it is where the pool pumps a lot of the larger debris that it is able to carry. Think of it as you would the inside of a vacuum cleaner. Though your vacuum does a good job of sweeping off the dust in your home, the dust doesn’t magically disappear, your vacuum is carrying everything, and you need to clean it out. The debris basket, also known as the pump basket, is the same.
If your debris basket is not replaced regularly, you face the risk of your pool pumps backing up and your water filter not working properly. Decreased filtration and pumping means lower water flow, which increases the chances of algae growing in your pool. Blue Chip Pool Service provides the weekly cleaning necessary for your debris basket, and may also consult you accordingly on how to take care of your basket on seasons where it tends to fill more like the spring and fall. Our job is to keep your water flowing, clear, and clean!
