Frequently Asked Questions

We have provided the answers to some of the most common questions that we are asked at the store. If your particular question is not listed below or if you would like more information or literature, feel free to go to our CONTACT US page and send us your question along with you name and information.

Q: How do I calculate the volume of my pool?

A: In the store when we calculate the volume of a pool, we use the equation length x width x average depth x 7.5 for rectangular pools. If you have a different shape pool, we suggest that you go to http://www.pool1.com/pool_gallon_calculator.htm which will calculate the volume for you based on the same length, width, and depth measurements.


Q: How long should I wait to swim after adding chemicals to my pool?

A: We normally recommend that you wait to add chemicals until you are done swimming for the day. If, however, you still wish to swim, you should wait at least two hours to swim to allow the chemicals to dissolve and properly mix in the water.


Q: How often should I backwash my pool?

A: We recommend backwashing your filter every week, preferably on the same day of the week. When you backwash your filter, backwash for 3 minutes and then rinse for 30 seconds before returning to filter.
