O-Ring Care and Tips

The safe operation and care of the rubber O-rings and seals are essential for Summer Escapes and Pro Series above-ground pools. Remember these pools are seasonal and exposure to adverse weather conditions will shorten the lifespan of rubber components of your pool. Below are tips on how to care for the rubber O-rings and seals on your pool.

1. Inspect the O-rings and seals every time you assemble or take down your pool.  Clean the components with warm water and mild detergent only. Look for worn edges, fractures or cuts. Replace any O-ring or seal that appears to be less than perfect. Water may leak from damaged rubber components.

2. Keep a thin coat of silicon lubricant on all rubber components to extend their lifespan. The rubber components should have a fine sheen to them but not overly lubricated. Dry rot is one of the most prevalent causes of rubber component damage on a filtration system.

3. It is always advisable to keep a spare O-rings and seals in case one fails in the middle of your swim season. Having extras means there is no break of enjoyment of your pool for you and your family.
