One of the most important part of pool maintenance is maintaining the proper level of chemicals in your pool water. At Paradise Pools And Spas, our pool maintenance experts can help you choose the right chemistry for your pool or spa. If you are a new pool owner, you may have questions about how to properly use pool chemicals. Here are some answers to common questions about pool chemicals:
What Does PPM Mean?
PPM is a term that you will come across when you are checking the chemicals in your pool. The abbreviation PPM stands for part per million. This unit of measurement will help you determine the chemistry levels of your pool.
What Is the Correct PH Level for My Pool?
PH is a measurement of the alkalinity and acidity of your pool water. To ensure that your pool is at a balanced chemistry level, you should keep your PH between 7.4 and 7.6. This PH level will prevent harmful bacteria and other contaminants from entering your pool water.
How Often Should I Check My Pool Chemicals?
You should check your pool chemicals as often as needed to ensure that your pool water is at a balanced PH level. When you are first adding new pool chemicals, you may need to check your chemical levels once daily until the right balance is achieved. After this time, you can check your chemicals once a week.
Should I Use Dry or Liquid Chemicals?
The choice between dry or liquid chemicals is up to you. Your professional pool company can recommend a combination that will work best for you.
