How often should I backwash?

You should backwash your pool when your filter pressure gauge reads 8 to 10 PSI over the starting level. It doesn’t hurt to backwash once per week when performing your weekly water testing maintenance.

How often should I run my pool?

We recommend running your pool for a minimum of 8 hours per day. During a heatwave you should aim for 12+ hours.

How often should I balance my pool water?

You should balance your pool water a minimum of once per week, but it is best to test your chlorine and pH levels twice a week.

 

What does it mean if I smell a strong chlorine odor?

A strong chlorine odor is caused by chloramines in the pool water and an oxidizing shock should be added to the pool to resolve this issue.

When should I open my pool?

You should open your pool two to three weeks before you plan to swim. It takes a minimum of two weeks to get the pool water balanced and debris cleared up for the pool to be safe for swimming.

Should I use a tarp or a solid safety cover when closing my pool?

Solid pool safety covers keep out debris and sunlight and make for a cleaner pool opening. Tarp covers often rip and are not designed to hold weight. If a child or pet were to walk on a tarp cover, they would sink through the tarp.

I was extremely impressed with the service we received from Moyer with their HVAC and Plumbing departments. Every person we spoke to was friendly and helpful. When the techs came to our house I felt that they took close care to providing quality work. We will be sticking with Moyer for future home services and will recommend them to family and friends!

I called over the weekend to have a plumber come out sometime the following week to check on some of our pipes in the basement and bathrooms. First thing Monday morning I received a call saying that Colin Tucci would be out within the next 20 mins. He was on time and very helpful while making sure to explain every step to both my wife and I. His work was very clean and he made sure to wear his mask and shoe coverings the whole time. I will continue to call Moyer Indoor/Outdoor with all my home service needs.
