How do I clean leaves from the Skimmer Box?
The Pooled Energy System is automatic and can operate at any time. If it does happen to start when you are cleaning the skimmer box and have the basket out, injury is possible and you may have leaves sucked into the plumbing and down to the strainer and filter. We recommend that you shut the system down when you do this.
On the Pool App, under the Pool Controls menu, switch the system from Auto to Manual
Please don’t forget to switch it back to Auto again when you are finished.
Please check the skimmer box regularly to see when it needs cleaning. If it gets really full to the extent that it is affecting water flow through the system, you may get an email or SMS request from the Pooled Energy Network Operating Center requesting that you clean the skimmer Box and Strainer.
If water flow is severely restricted, the system may shut down automatically to protect your pool equipment.
OUR ADVICE IS TO ALWAYS SHUT THE SYSTEM DOWN PRIOR TO DOING ANY CLEANING OR MAINTENANCE AND ANY LIABILITY IS YOURS IF YOU DO NOT.
