Pool water levels

Pool Water Levels – Does it matter?

The level of your pool’s water is constantly rising and falling – depending on how much it rains and how much water is lost by evaporation. In Gauteng this is especially relevant in the warmer seasons when it is both hot and raining.

When the pool water level is higher than half way up, the water moving into the skimmer is going so slow that debris may pass by the opening without being sucked in. If the pool water completely covers the skimmer opening, floating debris can’t get in at all.

When the pool water level is too low the pool skimmer can bottom out, thereby sucking air into the pump system which can result in losing the prime (water moving through the system) .This can result in burning up your swimming pool filter pump motor.

Ideally you should keep your swimming pool water levels between one third and one half the way up the opening of the swimming pool skimmer. This is the level at which your swimming pool skimmers operate most effectively.
