Please check the Strainer on your filter pump from time to time and before you do a backwash. The Pooled Energy system will often detect blockages in the Strainer or the skimmer box and inform you by email or SMS, but not necessarily and it may not detect the fault when the system is only partially blocked.


  • If the Strainer needs cleaning, using the Pool App, TURN AUTOMATION OFF
  • After all the pumps stop, SHUT the valve between the filter pump and the pool if you have one.
  • If the equipment is below water level, ROTATE the valve on top of the filter from FILTER to CLOSED.
  • Open the Strainer cover, remove the basket and clean it.
  • Replace the basket.  Close and tighten the strainer lid.
  • ROTATE the valve on top of the filter from CLOSED to FILTER, and open the valve between the filter pump and pool if you have one.
  • TURN AUTOMATION ON
