Keeping Your Pool Clean

Pool heaters, and pool heater repair, Vero Beach FLAt Absolute Pool Repair we know that pools are a great source of pleasure for the people who own them. Pools require a substantial investment to build.  If not maintained properly, just like your home or car, the cost to repair  will most always be higher than the cost of maintaining your pool properly.

One of the things that can ensure your pool provides  a consistent source of great fun is to ensure that  it is clean and healthy for your family. The CDC has some helpful information on just how a pool owner can do this, take a look:

Your Disinfection Team: Chlorine & pH  : Protecting swimmers and their families from recreational water illnesses (RWIs) is the reason that pool staff regularly check both chlorine and pH levels. Chlorine and pH, your disinfection team, are the first defense against germs that can make swimmers sick.

What does chlorine do?  Chlorine kills germs in pools–but it takes time to work. Therefore, it’s important to make sure chlorine levels are always at the levels recommended by the health department (usually between 1.0 – 3.0 ppm).

Why does chlorine need to be tested regularly?  All sorts of things can reduce chlorine levels in pool water. Some examples are sunlight, dirt, debris, and material from swimmers’ bodies. That’s why chlorine levels must be routinely measured. However, the time it takes for chlorine to work is also affected by the other member of the disinfection team, pH.

Why is pH important?  Two reasons. First, the germ-killing power of chlorine varies with pH level. As pH goes up, the ability of chlorine to kill germs goes down. Second, a swimmer’s body has a pH between 7.2 and 7.8, so if the pool water isn’t kept in this range then swimmers will start to feel irritation of their eyes and skin. Keeping the pH in this range will balance chlorine’s germ-killing power while minimizing skin and eye irritation. ”

  1. Thanks for the information. My pool has been acting funny lately. I’m guessing it’s the filter that’s acting up. There are also a few cracks in the pool that need to be fixed. If only we had kept it clean, just like you had suggested. Maybe we could have avoided the repairs.
