Maintaining Your Pool Rollers: Tips and Tricks in QLD
Although swimming pool rollers are made using quality materials, regular maintenance will only help to prolong their lifespan and protect your pool from debris, UV radiation and other hazards. In this blog, Peachy Pools offers some helpful tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your wall-mounted pool rollers.
A pool cover is designed to keep leaves, twigs and any other unwanted foreign objects out of the pool. However, Peachy Pools recommends cleaning this debris from both the cover and roller regularly. This will prevent tears and stains on the cover but it will also keep debris from compromising the roller mechanism. Both the cover and roller work in tandem so it’s important to clean both.
Check For Wear & Tear
Pool rollers get more use than you might think and are responsible for carrying a lot of weight from pool covers. All that weight wears the roller down over time and when you combined that with constant use and possible mishandling, that’s when damage occurs. If you spot any kind of damage, address the issue, don’t wait for it to get worse.
Rollers are built to last but they are not indestructible. Check pool rollers regularly to spot cracks and holes and contact your pool roller specialist for repairs.
Hosing the pool roller periodically with unchlorinated water will help clean off any chemical residue leftover from evaporated pool water. The dried-out chemical residue is corrosive and may damage the pool roller over time.
Reduce Exposure to Chemicals
If you are adding chemicals to your pool, we recommend leaving the pool cover off for 24 hours to minimise damage. Pool chemicals are particularly potent during this period and chemical residue from covers could not only run off and damage your roller but your cover as well.
Clean Roller Motor Box
If you have an automatic wall-mounted pool roller, regular maintenance of the motor box is very important. The motor box is made up of several components that can become degraded and damaged over time. This box should be checked regularly so that debris and grime can be cleaned. Wash the tracks thoroughly and inspect each component for signs of damage.
