May 14, 2010, Newsletter Issue #122: Turn Off Filters When Swimmers Are Present

Tip of the Week

Set the timer on your pool filter to activate during times when swimmers are unlikely to be using the pool.
When you are having your swimming pool built, ask your contractor about timers on the filter and how to set the times for it to run outside of peak swimming hours. When motors and filters are running in the swimming pool with swimmers present, the likelihood increases that someone's hair, swimsuit or pool toy could get caught and cause an accidental drowning. You can decrease this possibility by setting timers for the filter to run during the early morning or later in the evening.
