Maintaining a Healthy Chemical Balance in Your Pool

Summer time is all about fun and relaxation. What better place to relax than to lounge in your swimming pool? Whether you take care of your pool maintenance yourself or have a professional do it, there are things you need to know in order to keep your chemicals at a safe level for your family.

To keep your water clear try and focus on two things, proper circulation and proper chemicals. Think about it like this: In order to maintain a healthy body you need to make sure your blood is circulating properly, just like a pool pump circulates the water in your pool ensuring proper flow. Also what you put in your body has a direct effect on your circulation, much like the type and amount of chemicals you put in your pool.

Checking the ph level of your water is key to ensuring the chemicals are working properly. The ph level should be between 7.3 and 7.6. If you are uncomfortable doing the testing on your own pool we recommend hiring a professional. If you would like detailed information on how to check them yourself, follow this link for a description provided by USA Swimming.
