Saint George Utah is a beautiful, diverse, warm environment that provides many opportunities for outdoor activities. From swimming to biking, to rock climbing or skiing, St. George has it all.
While St. George, Ut is known for its outdoor activities, it is also well known for its “hurricane” type winds that seem to be nearly a constant addition to the local weather. Winds from the north seem to be blowing almost constantly. In fact, it is rumored that the nearby city of Hurricane received its name from these constant winds. Keeping your swimming pool clean in Saint George can be extra challenging.
The incessant winds bring with them a host of issues for local swimming pool owners and pool service companies. It seems the moment a swimming pool is vacuumed, skimmed, and brushed the wind picks up and blows dust, dirt, leaves, and debris right back into your beautiful, clean swimming pool.
At Splash Doctor, we deal with these issues on a daily basis with our Professional Pool Service company located in the Saint George area.
The two best ways we have found to deal with this issue are; continual pump operation with variable speed pumps, and a quality robotic vacuum cleaner such as the Dolphin Active 20 or the Pentair 920.
Variable Speed Pump
Variable-speed pool pumps can offer options to run pumps longer but at lower RPMs to help keep your pool clean in St. George
If you already have a variable speed pump installed in your pool in St. George Utah, you may try running it longer but at 25-50 percent of its operating speed. This allows the water to continually filter through your main skimmer, pump basket, and filter pulling away much more of the debris and sand that can accumulate.
By running the pump longer but at lower speeds, you allow your pool an opportunity to continually remove the contaminants rather than trying to run it on high and remove it all in a couple of hours.
Use a swimming pool robotic vacuum pool cleaner to help control the dust in St. George Utah
The second recommendation we provide is to use a quality robotic pool vacuum. The Dolphin Active 20 and Pentair 920 are nearly identical and provide very good value for under 1,000 dollars.
One benefit of this type of vacuum in Saint George is its ability to capture all dirt, leaves, debris, and sand in its own filter. This means your main pool pump and filter can be left to filter the water itself and not all the floor debris.
Included with both brands of robotic vacuums are two options levels of filtration on the vacuum, one for larger items such as sticks and leaves and another for fine sand and dust. To select a different filtration level you simply switch the filter panels on your unit.
These vacuums are designed to run every day, every other, or every 3rd day depending on your preference. They run for 2 hours at a time and are more than capable of handling any pool up to about 50,000 gallons. They have a 60-foot cord to make it possible to clean your pool in St. George from one central location.
