The Main Cause: A Coiling Hose
Your genuine ultra flex hose has started to coil.
This can happen for a number of reasons, for example:
Option 1: The Easiest Method
Try rearranging the order of the pipes in the hose.
Option 2: Using Hot Water
Remove the hose from the pool and lay it flat by the pool for a few hours on a hot day (above 28ºC)
Here Is A Tip from Lifestyle Pool Service For Your Swimming Pool During Winter
With the weather cooling, you can now run your pool pump a little less. This will at least save a bit on power.
However, if you have a Salt Chlorinator, be sure to monitor your chlorine levels each week to see if you need to increase the output of the salt chlorinator. remember, reducing the hours that your pump runs will reduce the running time of the Salt Chlorinator as well.
Also, in the Garden Route, we are prone to Berg Winds. On these hot days, it will be advisable to add a cup of chlorine to the pool and ensure Stabelizer levels are healthy. But be sure not to raise the Stabelizer levels too high as that can reduce the effectiveness of the free chlorine. But don't let the stabelizer drop low.
Keep your pool looking pristine during winter. Don't neglect the pH either, always check your pool chemistry weekly.
Are you managing your own swimming pool? We are sure many living in the Garden Route do, so if you perhaps at any stage are struggling with it and have tried to the best of your knowledge, but the pool water is still not quite right?
