Owning a swimming pool or hot tub can be a pain. But, it doesn’t have to be! Knowing the basics makes all the difference. Here’s the important steps:
•Maintain water chemistry
•Monitor water testing
All six steps must be performed on a weekly basis at minimum. Water testing and chemical adjustment is recommend twice weekly. Knowing how each one is to function will make your pool safe and a breeze to care for.
Correct water balance through testing will not only assure the pool is safe to swim in but, clear and without algae or pink slime. Proper filtration of particulate matter is crucial to crystal clear water.
Knowing the right turnover rate for the filter will assure clean pool water. Having the water circulated to all parts of the pool including around steps, benches and corners will assure the chlorinated water will inhibit algae, kill pink slime and bacteria in those areas.
Salt generators and ultraviolet light ozone (UVO) are great additions to your equipment as they will automatically provide the sanitation needed to keep the pool easier to care for.
