Tips For Maintaining Your Pool Equipment

6 thoughts on “Tips For Maintaining Your Pool Equipment

  1. Hi – I have a 36,000 gallon inground pool. There is a leak in one of the skimmers. I was constantly filling the pool with water so I decided to let the water level drop below the skimmers (where it stabilized) and run the pool off the main drain. This has worked well (I’m having the skimmers replaced next summer) but I’m wondering if this setup is straining my Polaris booster pump? Does that run more efficiently/stronger if there is “more water” running through the system?

    1. Pulling from the main drain isn’t going to affect your Polaris booster pump. Booster pumps are usually plumbed in after the main pool pump and do not pull directly from the pool the water level would play a role in its function.
