How to clean skimmer pump impeller

This article will show you how to check and clean the skimmer pump impeller. Over period of time, depend on the amount of usage / calcium dosing. The ceramic shaft will bond / stuck into the impeller magnetic housing, this prevent the impeller from spinning correctly. If you hold the both end of the impeller with the thumb / index finger and try to spin the impeller, it should spin freely. If the impeller not spinning or you have to put lot of force into making it spin.  The impeller / shaft needs cleaning.

The white shaft should easily be remove from the magnetic housing as well.

Picture 1 – Look at the red arrows, you will see evidence of build up.

Please watch the below YouTube videos to better understand

How to clean the impeller part 1

How to clean the impeller part 2

When the impeller is stuck into the magnetic housing, you can try to push the impeller out by putting one end on a hard flat object and push it.  You might have to repeat the this steps a few times. Vinegar bath the whole impeller should also helped. Once you removed the shaft from the impeller, you can feel and see residue / calcium powder.  You can use sand paper to sand it down or a brush to remove the residue. You want to clean off as much residue on the shaft and inside the magnetic housing as possible.

Once you done cleaning it, place the shaft back into the magnetic housing, you should feel there is no resistance and the shaft should be loose coming in and out of the impeller.  Now try to hold both ends of the shaft and try to spin the magnetic impeller with your finger, the impeller should spin freely.

We suggest that you do this type of cleaning every 4-6 months, this would help extend the life of the impeller and the motor housing.

How to replace the head cleaning screw

Over period of time the wiper blade screw might became loose, please follow the steps to replace or tighten the screw for the cleaner head.


Instruction on how to replace bulb for periha drop-in UV light

To replace the bulb, please make sure the power is off and the power cord is unplug from the outlet.  Using a dry towel, clean off the excessive water from the unit.

1- you can pull and peel out the rubber cap at the end; using a twist and turn motions, this would help.  The cap is not glue or attach to the unit or the cord, it designed to come off.

2- once you got the rubber cap peel off the glass quartz, you will see layers of rubber seal inside the glass quartz.

3- using protective gloves, you can slowly pull the power cord so part of the rubber seal will come out.  Once its out, you can start pulling them out.  You can use some small object to help with this process, however please be careful of breaking or damaging the glass or most important, hurting yourselves.

4 – once you got the rubber seals out, you can swap the bulb out, making sure to put the spacer back at the end of the bulb.
