What Chemicals Do I Need For My Pool?
To maintain your pool, there a few types of chemicals you’ll need on hand. Each of these chemicals perform a different function that help keep your swimming pool running smoothly. However, within each type of pool chemical, you do have a few choices. We’ll go through the pros and cons of each chemical you’ll need.
Sanitizing Pool Chemicals Solution
Chlorine is the most popular sanitizer for pools, and an extremely effective cleaner that kills bacteria and algae. Also – it’s affordable! Proper chlorine levels for pools: 3 ppm (parts per million). Chlorine comes in tablets, powders, and granular mixtures, and special dispensary systems can be used to regulate the levels. At Baker, we can supply any chlorine sanitizer you need and answer any questions you may have.
Bromine is another option that works a bit different than chlorine. It works better in indoor pools because sunlight eats up bromine very fast, rendering it useless. However, it is odorless and works as a fantastic sanitizer when free from the sun. The proper level for bromine is 3 to 5 ppm.
Cleaner because it eliminates bacteria with a lot less chlorine. Makes your water clearer and so silky soft, you can actually feel the difference. When introduced into water, certain minerals like silver and copper sanitize and help clean the water. Chlorine level only needs to be at 0.5 ppm. Eliminates faded swimsuits and that locker room smell due to high chlorine values other systems use.
Water Balance Chemicals
In order to keep the water in your pool properly balanced, you must keep note of three things: pH, alkalinity and calcium hardness.
The proper pH levels of a pool range between 7.2 to 7.8. To keep the pH in the proper range, it is important to have pH increaser and pH decreaser chemicals on hand.
The proper alkalinity level of a pool ranges between 80 and 120 ppm. Alkalinity is a pH stabilizer, so it keeps the pH from moving up or down too rapidly.
The ideal level of calcium hardness ranges between 200 to 400 ppm. It’s technically not part of water balance, but it does protect your pool liner, plumbing and filter system from deteriorating over time.
