How do you fix the timer on a pool filter?
If your pool filter timer is broken, you’re not alone. Many pool owners have faced this issue at some point. Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to fix. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the steps to take to get your timer back up and running in no time.
Unscrew the top of the filter and remove the lid
Removing the lid of your filter can be both simple and difficult depending on the size and type of filter you’re dealing with. It’s important to unscrew the top of your filter carefully, as it may contain other components that you don’t want to damage. In order to unscrew the top safely and effectively, use two hands to hold down the lid of the filter while using a pair of pliers to turn the top counterclockwise until it comes off. This will ensure that you’re taking all necessary precautions without causing any damage as you remove the lid.
Find the timer mechanism inside the filter and unscrew it from the housing
To find and unscrew the timer mechanism inside of the filter’s housing, you’ll need to carefully open up the housing in order to observe the inner workings of the filter. Once inside, inspect each piece before attempting to remove any part. Pay particular attention to the timer mechanism as that is the part that needs removing. It should look like a small device with various electrical wires connecting it. Carefully disconnect these wires and then proceed to unscrew them from the housing using a properly sized screwdriver. Have patience and follow this process carefully until you succeed in taking apart the timer mechanism from its place within the filter.
Remove the batteries from the timer and replace them with new ones
Maintaining a timer that is powered by a battery can be an easy task to do. To ensure accuracy and reliability in the timer, you should make sure to regularly replace the batteries with fresh ones. All you need to do is take out the old batteries, dispose of them properly, insert new ones in their place, close the device and you’re done! It’s a simple process that only takes a few minutes but it will help your timer stay accurate and dependable for years.
Screw the timer back into place and screw on the lid
Tightening the screw on the lid of the timer reminded me of all the other times I had performed this simple task. In a way, it was comforting to know that no matter how hectic life can get, some things can always stay the same. From now on, it was securely in place – ready to count down yet another cycle of seconds and minutes; moments I wouldn’t have a second chance at. This time around, I only hoped that I would make the best of them.
Turn on the power to your pool filter and test out the timer to see if it’s working properly
Before you are able to enjoy a pool full of crystal-clear water, the first step is to make sure the filter is working properly.
