Swimming Pool water balance

Having trouble with your pools clarity?

Have lots of chlorine in water but pool still not right?


Your Ph and Alkalinity are just as important as your chlorine reading for getting your pool back into top form.


Alkalinity is the buffer for the Ph.

If the Alkalinity is wrong the pools pH will fluctuate very quickly and it will be very hard to maintain the pH at the correct level of between 7.2 -7.6.


pH will affect the strength of the chlorine
If the Ph (Power Hydrogen) is out of line the effect of the chlorine can have as little as ¼ of the strength as if the ph level is correct. So yes the ph is important.



Chlorine should be kept at a steady level of between 1 – 3 ppm.

Take into account hot weather, high bather load and lots of rain can put your pool water under massive strain to keep crystal clear.
