Pulliam Pools does not sell parts or chemicals to the public.
You should be backwashing your filter once every four to six weeks, although it should also be done when its pressure rises about 10lbs above its normal level. Backwashing is included as part of our pool maintenance service.
Your filter also needs to be completely disassembled, checked and cleaned twice a year to allow efficient filtration – this can be booked in through our Client Support program but will incur an extra charge.
Every pool works differently, so there is no single answer – the start-up instructions issued with your new pool should give you all the information you need, including the correct pressure for your filter.
This should really be a weekly task to ensure the right balance is maintained, but it can be reduced to once a fortnight when the water temperature dips below 60 degrees.
Yes, if you are a current maintenance customer or if you have had a Pulliam pool that still under the equipment warranty.

There are multiple reasons this could be happening. The first step is to check that your booster pump running. If it is not running, you will need to schedule for a technician to come out.
No – Your equipment should typically run 8-12 hours depending on your pump system.
We recommend scheduling a consultation, but it sounds like your pool may need an acid wash or possibly a replaster. If you would like to schedule a consultation please fill out our remodeling contact form.
Pulliam offers both full service repair on equipment as well as full maintenance on your pools. If you need assistance please start by filling out our service request form.
We recommend a filter clean at least two times a year. Every pool is different though, your pool may require more.
Yes, and it will need to be regularly renewed, usually once or twice a year – check your permit for details. Your local authority will let you know what information you need to provide, and your local water authority will also need to approve your plans. Your pool will also need to comply with the International Building, International Plumbing and National Electric codes.
Yes! We work with a number of accredited finance companies that can help with the costs of building a new pool. Click here to find out more.
Yes – with such a significant investment, you should always ensure that you get a written warranty. Don’t be afraid to ask about it from the outset, and once your new pool has been completed, make sure you get it serviced regularly in order to maintain your warranty.
With so many types and sizes of pools available, and with every location and backyard having its own issues that could affect the build, one general ballpark figure is unhelpful. For a bespoke pool, the cost could be anywhere between $60,000 and $1 million.
You’ll always lose some water during the swimming season, as a result of splashing, evaporation (the hotter it is, the more you’ll lose) and running certain water features.
However, if you are losing more than usual, you should check your equipment and plumbing for signs of a leak, see if there are any cracks inside your pool and check the water bypassing valve on the backwash line.
If you cannot see any obvious causes for your leak, please contact our Service team to book in a visit.
If the water level is too low, the system can draw air in and eventually expel it into the water, causing bubbles to appear.
If the water is at the right level, your skimmer doors may not be getting pulled into the water – if this is the case, remove any debris that might have accumulated in the pump lid and try again.
If you are still getting air bubbles, then you’ll need to submit a service request form.
This could be because:
A new motor capacitor or motor is required, in which case you should submit a service request form
This is usually going to be as a result of an issue with the pump lid. Turn the system off, remove the lid and empty the strainer basket. Then check and lubricate the lid’s O-ring and pour about five gallons of water into the strainer pot. Once this has been done, replace the lid and turn the system back on. Allow the pump to self-prime for about 10 or 15 minutes. If it’s still not working as it should – and the water in the pool is above the skimmers – then you should complete a service request form.
Electrics associated with swimming pools should be fitted with circuit breakers and/or GFCI plugs that trip to the off position if they detect a problem. Try to reset, but if it won’t, or the system keeps tripping again afterwards, we’d recommend submitting a service request form to log the issue with us.
