Safety Tip #1

Skimmer baskets should only be removed when the pool pump is turned off. This can prevent injuries to hands and also protect the pipes and pumps from objects get lodged in-line. Throughout the year we get plenty of calls to clear clogged lines. Some of the objects found so far have been plastic kids toys, towels, acorns, shirts, rocks and of course UNDERWEAR 🙂 This is easily prevented by keeping the skimmer basket in place at all times with the exception being during cleanings with the pump off.
