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.

They were punctual, communicative with every step along the way...
Moyer Indoor/Outdoor installers (Tim & Dan) are the utmost professional installers I’ve ever experienced! They were punctual, communicative with every step along the way, they didn’t blare loud music, raise their voices or use inappropriate language. I appreciated they were respectful by wearing booties on their feet along with having drop cloths leading from my front door to the basement. Tim went above and beyond keeping me updated when it was apparent the install was going to need an extra day. Tim explained the new Heat pump system to me in layman’s terms which I understood. On a scale of 1-10, Tim & Dan deserve a score of 1000!
