We’ve all heard the terminology, but what exactly is pool water balance? In a nutshell, pool water balance is a favorable measure of pH and alkalinity in your pool. Let’s breakdown each of these for a closer look:
Pool pH Control
pH is a measure of how acidic or basic the water in your pool is. The ideal pH level for pool pH control is between 7.4 and 7.6. If the pH level in your pool is either too low or too high, it can cause skin and eye irritation.
Alkalinity is a measure of how much acidity is needed to lower the pH level of pool water. Being able to balance total alkalinity of your pool is extremely important.
The ideal alkalinity level for pool water is between 80 and 120 ppm (parts per million). If the alkalinity level in your pool is too low, it can cause the pH level to fluctuate wildly, making it difficult to maintain a consistent pH level. If the alkalinity level in your pool is too high, it can make the water feel sticky and cause calcium deposits to form on surfaces around the pool.
One of the most affordable and effective methods of achieving pool water balance is by incorporating the Clearwater Pool Systems. This three-part solution prevents the pitfalls experienced by having a muriatic acid swimming pool while helping maintain pool pH control and balance total alkalinity:
- MineralPURE® – pool ionization system
- OzoneMAX™ – ultraviolet ozone system
- pHPure™ – CO2 pool system delivering a CO2 injection for pools
If you want to maintain pool water balance, then the Clearwater Pools Systems is the most effective, safe, and affordable option to help you accomplish this goal.
