Remember to always check/empty the pump baskets when you empty the skimmer baskets. A clogged pump basket will restrict water flow, cause damage to the internal parts of your pump and cause possible motor failure. Another item to check as the warmer weather is on it’s way – keep your pool at the proper water level. Water level should be at least half way up on the skimmer throat opening. Check back in the future for more tips and safety items.
