Balancing Your Pool Water
The first step in maintaining perfect pool water is to keep the water in balance. Balanced water prevents algae growth, cloudy water, scale buildup, corrosion and equipment damage. It also ensures maximum sanitizer efficiency. The chlorine in your pool water can work most effectively when ideal ranges are maintained.
Quick and simple testing of basic pool water components will keep your water healthy and sparkling clear.
There are many types of test kits available including test strips. To accurately assess your pool water, you should use a test kit that allows you to measure pH, free available chlorine, total chlorine, total alkalinity, calcium hardness and stabilizer (cyanuric acid).
