When you own a swimming pool, you need to keep the water free of algae, dirt and bacteria so everyone stays healthy. You want to keep your pool safe and maintaining it is easy when you understand pool chemistry and test your pool regularly.
Always read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions printed on the treatment package. Test the water regularly – it’s a simple process to use a test kit. You want to maintain water balance by measuring:
- pH -7.2 – 7.8
- Total Alkalinity – 75 – 120 ppm
- Calcium Hardness – 100 – 500 ppm
- Free Available Chlorine – 1 – 4 ppm
