Achieving The Right Chemical Composition In Your Swimming Pool Is Vital
Even when you are using your swimming pool in a ‘normal’ fashion, all manner of items can potentially find their way into your pool and cause harm to it – for example, by making the water unhealthy to swim in or preventing chemical treatments from doing their job.
Your swimming pool needs to be both balanced and sanitised if it is to remain healthy, so you won’t be surprised to see both pool sanitizers and Water Balance Chemicals well-represented in our stock here at Pool Warehouse.
Chlorine is the product that will most efficiently sanitise your pool, although other sanitizers are also available for the important task of ridding your pool of the bacteria – such as from swimmers’ bodies, animals, rain or debris – that could contaminate your pool water.
What Does It Mean To ‘balance’ Your Swimming Pool?
This term refers to the process of ensuring that the five basic components of your swimming pool water – the total alkalinity, pH, stabiliser, calcium hardness and total dissolved solids – remain within their proper levels.
The better balanced these components are, the more effective your sanitizer will be, so as you can see, there is a symbiotic relationship between the sanitising and balancing of your pool – both of these things are truly crucial.
The fact that water balance is continually changing further highlights the importance of testing your water on a weekly basis.
What Else Do You Need To Know About Your Pool Water’s Components?
The aforementioned components of your pool water naturally have different roles to play in keeping your water in the best possible condition.
Total alkalinity, for example, refers to the amount of alkaline in your pool water, with low alkaline water leading to low pH and high alkaline water leading to high pH.
Speaking of your pool water’s pH levels, it is crucial to keep them within the proper range not only so that those using your pool can swim more comfortably, but also to preserve the condition of your pool equipment and finish. The term ‘pH’ is in reference to your pool water’s acidity or baseness, with a proper pH level being in the range of 7.4 to 7.6 on the numeric scale of a pH test kit.
