Make sure no walls and plants will hinder air from moving into the machine, there is enough airflow around the pump, this is very important, even partial blockage will make it works overtime, which means more money and energy.

Clean the coil

This is a simple endeavor and doesn’t need special material.
Shut our INVERBOOST UX pump off at the main switch or the circuit breaker and use an air sprayer with a nozzle to spray the coil’s external area from top to bottom. Do not use pressure to wash this, if greasy dirty is the problem, then you can use a mild cleanser, when spraying use a gentle approach. Please don’t use a lot of pressure, the coil’s fan can be bent.
Only use pure water, no cleaners or detergents. Recycled water is acidic, which is not good for the pump.
Experts recommend that you clean the vanes once per year and check the heat pump every month to see if more cleaning is required. This will help to keep the pump’s efficiency in moving heat to the swimming pools.

Clean the inner of the heat pump

When the INVERBOOST UX heat pump is still off, clean out any leaves and much at the bottom of the pool heat pump. Ensure you clean the side opening well so that raindrops go out quickly through the bottom and do not accumulate inside.
