Only two simple steps are required to properly maintain a swimming pool, and keep pool water safe for swimmers. These two important steps are circulation and sanitation. Circulation is easily achieved through the use of one of the many pool filter systems on the market today. Sanitizing swimming pool water and properly maintaining the pool water chemistry can be more difficult. Every swimming pool is a little different and there is no owner’s manual with all of the answers to the many problems pool owners might run into. Proper water chemistry in required to keep a swimming pool safe and clean for swimmers, and properly maintaining swimming pool chemicals can save pool owners Thousand of Rupees each year and endless hours of time.
According to the results of the pool water tests, we may need to add chemicals to bring the pool water back into the ideal balance for swimmer safety and visual clarity.
We are required to regularly adjust the pH and chlorine levels as these tend to fluctuate according to the weather conditions and swimming pool use. It is extremely important to adjust the pH before adding the chlorine. When the pH is 8.0 the chlorine is only 20% effective and at a pH of 8.5 the chlorine is only 8% effective. Chlorine becomes overactive when the pH is lower than 7.0 .
Despite a balanced pool water system, the swimming pool can sometimes become cloudy and lose its sparkle. This is usually a result of minute suspended particles of dirt in the water that are too small to be trapped in the filter. These particles can usually be cleared using a flocculant/ coagulant, which clumps them together, allowing them to be removed from the pool.
