What is water chemistry?
It is a perfect balance of chemicals in pool water that will provide a safe swimming environment and sparkling pool. A sparkling pool is chemistry not guess work.
If a Pool Tech services my pool regularly, is it ok for me to add chemicals too?
NO, It is important to check with the Pool Tech first. Why? A sparkling pool is chemistry not guess work. A properly trained technician will keep the water balanced with a variety of chemicals. Adding something "extra" can reverse what is trying to be achieved. Especially, if the tech is dealing with problems that occur from unbalanced pool water.
Do I need to do anything to my pool if I have a pool tech come every week?
Yes, it is important to check skimmer baskets and empty when needed, especially during windy weather. A full skimmer basket will impair filtration and can ruin equipment. Also, make sure enough water is in the pool. It should be able to drain into the skimmer. Letting the water get below the skimmer can ruin your equipment. In the hot summer months you may need to fill a few times a week. Automatic Fill Valves can be installed to do the filling for you.
Why does my pool still have algae if my tech treated a pretty bad algae bloom, last week?
Once a pool becomes unbalanced it may take a few weeks to correct the problem. If the offenders are high temps, monsoon rains and high winds dumping organic matter into the pool, it may take longer. Unfortunately, if the offender is a lovely tree hanging over the pool (all it takes is one) you may have this problem re-occur until the tree is trimmed back considerably or gone.
My kids love the pool, unfortunately they don't always get out to "tinkle", is that bad?
YES, just one "tinkle" can deplete the chlorine in the pool. It just takes a few hours to have a zero chlorine reading!! TRUE. Super chlorinating the pool will sanitize the bacteria, but the urine will break down as total dissolved solids (TDS) and does not leave the pool. Once the TDS reaches their breaking point the pool must be drained.
What are "Total Dissolved Solids"?
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are the measure of all solids dissolved in a sample of water. What does that mean? Perspiration, hair gel, hair spray, urine, deodorant, lotions, feces, barf, makeup, organic matter, detergents, material hosed into the pool from the deck, skin cells, dirt, pet hair, you get the point, never leave the pool. Chemicals are used to make the pool a safe place to swim, but at some point the, if the TDS's get too high the pool will need to be drained. This should be done on an average every 3-5 years depending on pool usage.
Is brushing and checking the chemicals all I need to do to my pool?
Not necessarily, to keep your pool looking as beautiful as the day it was finished you need a combination of water chemistry, water circulation to keep the water from going stagnant, and manual cleaning to remove and dirt and debris from it. Dirt and debris can stain your pool finish along with "metals" that may be in your pool as well.
