In-Floor cleaning systems are designed to maintain the cleanliness of in-ground pebble, plaster, vinyl, and fiberglass pools. These systems use a water control valve that distributes water pressure into individually designated zones. The water control valves come in 2 port, 3 port, 4 port, 5 port, and 6 port residentially. Commercially, the systems can expand upwards of 12 ports. If the water control valve stops working for whatever reason, the in-floor system will not work appropriately. It’s possible that not all of the zones activate. In the event that this happens, the pool will have an irregular cleaning pattern. Each zone may contain anywhere from 2 - 6 cleaning pop up heads. As the heads are activated they push debris resting on the bottom either towards the main drain or up as floating particulate. The debris that is floating suspended in the water is then moved around the pool by the main circulation system. This forces the debris towards the skimmer to be filtered out of the water. The in-floor heads feature nozzles that come in low flow and a high flow capability. The low flow in-floor heads are designed to be installed in the benches and steps within the pool. The high flow in-floor heads are designed to be installed in the bottom of the pool. When the heads lose pressure and go back down into the floor, they turn slightly to ensure complete coverage of the bottom when the heads are activated again.
When the time comes to repair or replace the in-floor pop up cleaning heads, there are many unique removal and installation tools to help. We carry retainer rings and nozzles as well as a variety of different style cleaning pop up heads. In the event that one or more of the pop-up cleaning heads are not functioning properly, we stock many water valve modules and kits which will replace the gears and other replacement parts inside the in-floor cleaning control valve.
