• Always turn off electrical circuits at the panel before repairing or servicing any pool equipment.
    Avoid any possibility of equipment coming on when you are working on the equipment and eliminate the possibility of electrical shock to the repairperson.

  • Do not start pump with return line valves closed.
    Circulating systems require an open path for the water to flow, and closed valves cause unnecessary pressure on the entire system.

  • Use a qualified, licensed electrician for major electrical repairs or installations relating to your pool/spa equipment.
    Electrical requirements and regulations are constantly changing regarding pool and spa equipment. An electrical professional follows the proper installation procedures to meet the latest safety standards.

  • Maintain your pool equipment in good working order.
    Replace worn or damaged parts immediately (i.e. pressure gauges, skimmer lids, filter clamps, electrical accessories, drain covers, etc.)

  • Check your pool equipment for air leaks.
    Air bubbles being discharged through the return fittings is a sign of air leaking into the system. Air accumulating in the filter system could cause serious injury or damage if not relieved properly.


  • Always stand clear of the filter during system start up.
    Pump pressure causes tank expansion and trapped air in the system is potentially dangerous if the clamp is not installed or tightened correctly.

  • Position pressure gauges and equipment instruction so they are visible during system operation and maintenance.
    Tank instruction labels and gauges should be positioned so that any repairperson can read them easily without coming in contact with the equipment.

  • If you have questions about the way your equipment operates, contact a licensed pool professional or the original equipment manufacturer.
    Swimming pool/spa equipment manufacturers are always ready to supply you with helpful information on the equipment, and they want to keep you aware of improved changes to their products.
