Pool Care 101

Water Balance

Here are the parameters for properly balanced swimming pool water.

Water that is unbalanced may be corrosive, or scale forming. For example, a pool with a pH below 7.0 or a calcium hardness level below 150ppm can corrode a gas heater's heat exchanger within months which can be costly. A high pH, total alkalinity, or calcium hardness level can cause scale build-up which can clog heat exchangers, chlorinators, or small pipes.
