Secrets to Pool Water Maintenance

When you have problems with your pool water, what is your first response? For many pool owners it’s, “Quick! Add more chemicals!” We are here to say, “not so fast.”

The secret to crystal clear, feel good pool water lies in three main secrets, only one of which is chemicals.


3 Secrets to Pool Water Maintenance

Maintain a clean filter. This is probably the simplest step a pool owner can take to promote quality pool water. And while it won’t fix all problems, it’s worth keeping it clean to avoid overlooking a potentially simple remedy.
Use the right amount of chemicals. Too many chemicals will lead to many of the issues pool owners attempt to avoid, as in burning eyes, cloudy pool water, and more. Remember, adding chemicals might just be adding to the problem. It’s important to know when to hold off.
Use a non-chemical supplemental sanitizer. Non-chemical sanitizers can greatly reduce the need for chemicals, particularly chlorine and bromine, while providing a greater spectrum of coverage against pool water problems.


Of course, not all of these non-chemical solutions work as promised. Ozone, on the other hand, is naturally proven to deliver 200 times more oxidizing power than chlorine, making it effective against a wide array of contaminants.


So, now you know the secrets, let’s put them to use.
