Poolman Tips | FAQ

How long and when do I run my pool?
As long as there is water in your pool you must run your system once a day in order to properly circulate and filter all the water in a 24 hour period. Poolman recommends you run your system at nighttime between the hours of 9pm and 7am. In the summer months we recommend running your pool 8-10 hours depending on the size and/or the equipment being used. In the winter months we recommend the pool run 6-8 hours.

Why is my cleaner not working?
Usually in this situation your cleaner went over a rock, toy or stick. With the system running pull your cleaner up to the surface of the pool but NOT OUT OF THE WATER, and check for the obstruction; if this doesn’t work then backwash your filter. If you are still having problems shut your pool off and remove the cleaner from the pool to determine what is wrong. If you are not sure, contact Poolman.

What are the effects if my water level changes?
Be sure to always maintain the water level in your pool up to the middle of the skimmer box opening. If your water level gets too low your pump will draw air and run dry, causing damage to your equipment. If your pool level gets too high your skimmer will not clean the surface of the pool and you will be wasting water.
