Blue world pools,
inc. Be sure to follow these above ground pools
maintenance instructions to the letter!
You will need 2 gal. Clorox and water softener salt
Fill pool until water is 1' below top of skimmer opening.
Now is the time to connect the electric to the system. If you are going
to use an extension cord for the pump, the cord must be at least 12 guage.
If cord is longer than 50 feet, you must use a 10 guage cord. Using a
lighter cord will result in your motor running hot and tripping the thermal
overload switch and evenutually burning up your motor, which is not covered
under any warranty. You will need 2 electrical outlets; one for the pump motor,
the other is for the ion system.
With multport valve in backwash position, turn on the pump. Run pump until
water flow is clear and clean. This will take about 2 to 3 minutes. Turn pump
off rotate valve to rinse. Turn pump on and run again until clear. Repeat
this process. Turn pump off, move valve to filter, and turn pump on. At this
time water should be returning to your pool. Check pressure guage. Make a note
of this reading. This is your clean filter reading.
With pump running in filter position, pour 2 gallans of Clorox bleach directly into pool water.
Dump water softener salt directly into pool at the following rate.
18' round pool 60 lbs. 24' round pool. 80 lbs. 27' round pool 120 lbs. Oval pools 60 lbs.
you can find this, water softener salt, at lowes or home depot in the plumbing department.
this in necessary for the ion systen to work properly. This must be done.
If your pool came with Stain Out pour the entire bottle into the pool water now.
Run pump on filter for 24 hours.
Set dial on ion system to 3. Run pump another 24 hours.
Test the total alkalinity. Adjust as needed. Range is 80 to 120. Ideal is 100.
Test the ph. Adjust as needed. Needs to be between 7.2 and 7.6. Ideal is 7.4
Take a water sample, a quart of water, to a pool store and have them test the calcium hardness
adjust as needed. This needs to be between 200 and 400. Ideal is 300
During this process your filter should be running 24 hours a day. Usually takes a couple days to
complete the process.
Test the copper level. If to high; turn the dial on the ion system down. If to low; turn it up.
Now you may start running your pump only 12 hours per day.
Pump must run at least 12 hours every day. Run during daylight hours. I suggest 8am to 8pm.
You must test your pool water every week and adjust as needed.
You must add one to two gallon clorox each week.
proper water balance is nescessary to maintain clear and healthy water. At times, due to
adverse weather conditions or heavy bather load, you may feel the floor or walls of the
pool to be slick or slimly. This can be cured by pouring in a gallon of clorox at this time.
Follow these instructions and you will have a great and enjoyable summer.
