Removing the Covers
Follow the steps below to remove cover.
1 Prepare the winter cover for removal by clearing off all debris and water using a leaf skimmer and a cover pump.
2 Drain and remove the water sleeves and any tie down ropes.
3 Remove the cover, clean and dry it. Store cover for next season
Reconnecting the filter
Follow the steps below to open your pool at the beginning of each season.
1 Confirm that your pump shaft turns freely and connect pump to the system base.
2 Make sure to remove all parts stored in the pump strainer basket during winter storage and reinstall those stored parts.
3 Connect the pump to the filter tank.
4 Make sure O-rings on the ball valve are properly seated and in good operating condition.
5 Place the ball valve in the “skimmer only” position and attach it to the hose leading from the floor drains.
IMPORTANT: Keep the hose tied up until the ball valve is securely attached to the hose.
6 Untie floor drain hose and bring the ball valve down and reattach it to the system base.
7 Reconnect the skimmer line to the ball valve.
8 Reconnect the ball valve to the pump
9 Connect the FROG to the return port of the Filter system.
10 Connect the return line to the FROG
11 Turn the ball valve to the “closed position”.
12 Remove the Aquador and the return plug. Replace sleeve and eyeball in return port.
13 Replace any displaced water so that water level is 3” – 4” above the bottom of the skimmer.
14 Install the ladder flanges. When the pool is full, install your in- pool ladder.
15 Place the basket inside skimmer and reattach the skimmer door.
16 The filter system is now reconnected and ready for start-up.
If you have a FROG® you will need a new Mineral Reservoir.
1 Open air release valve on top of filter.
2 Put the ball valve in the “open position”
3 Start pump to purge air from the system.
4 When steady stream of water comes from air release valve close the valve.
5 Check the reading on the pressure gauge to ensure that your pressure has gone to its normal levels.
6 Place your hand in front of the return port inside your pool to confirm water is flowing into the pool. Your pool is now filtering water normally.
7 Set Frog dial back to normal operating level.
8 Shock the pool with chlorine to rid the water of all contaminants.
DO NOT ADD SHOCK IN OR NEAR THE
SKIMMER OR INTO THE FROG CYCLER DIRECTLY.
This could cause damage to the equipment, discolor your pool surface and could risk a potential explosion.
