Pool Inspection Tips
To have adequate and functional water flow through the pool system, there are several things that are required:
• There shouldn’t be any water leaks at the plumping connections or equipment.
• All of the valves should be fully open.
• There should not be any trapped air in the system. Air at the filter tank should be purged routinely.
• The skimmer and Main drain should be clear of blockage and debris. Skimmers require cleaning.
• The strainer pot at the pump should be cleaned and routinely checked.
• There might be an imbalance in the water chemistry, causing scaling. Check first any scale causing clogging or restriction of water flow.
Pool Inspection Tips
• Barrier Locations
Barriers should be located so as to prohibit permanent structures, equipment or similar objects from being used to climb the barriers.
• Each year in Canada, about 100 children under five years old drown in swimming pools and spas, usually owned by their family. In addition, more than 1000 children under five are treated in hospital emergency rooms for submersion injuries. The following information can help provide young children with the protection they deserve.
• Most jurisdictions require some type of barrier at a pool and hot tub to prevent drowning. Sometimes, the barrier is surrounding the pool, but not the hot tub. Be sure not to overlook the issues of barriers when inspecting the hot tub.
Pool & Spa Tidbits…Did you know?
• There is great potential of electrical shock hazards around a swimming pool or hot tub. Due to waters conductive properties, it provides a path for fault current, through the water to the earth. When a bather touches an energized metal component, the fault current path through that bather could be fatal.
• A swimmer floating in a pool, not touching anything but the surrounding water, could become part of a fault current path, too. If an electrical device, such as a portable radio, falls into the swimming pool, an electrical potential might be created in the pool that could cause the person to be surrounded by different levels of voltage in the water, acting like the conductor.
