Pool Tech Pete replaces a leaking filter on Sovereign Island

11 August 2020

 by Angus Donald

Just another day in the life of a Pool Technician at APS. The pool filter at one of our VIP Regular Service customers on Sovereign Islands had a failure due to age, and Pete was tasked to replace the filter.

The location of the filtration equipment meant Pete had nowhere convenient to syphon the 15 year old sand from the failing filter.  In circumstances such as this we have customised bags that we use to place the used filter media for off-site disposal.

Pete also identified a faulty non-return valve and replaced it with a clear top valve which serves the same purpose, and also allows visual inspection of the flow of water.

The filter has now been replaced, new crushed glass filter media has been used which provides improved filtration, longer life, and uses less water when backwashing.  The old filter sand has been bagged and removed, the faulty valve has been replaced and the pool is back up and running, better than before.  

Nice work Pete!
