Swimming Pool PH Balancers

Establishing and keeping the correct water balance is important for a number of reasons:

  • Chemical efficiency
  • Bather comfort
  • Protection of swimming pool and plant room equipment
  • Water quality and appearance
  • Makes it easier and less time consuming to look after the swimming pool

Some people believe that keeping the right pH is all that is needed to achieve the correct water balance; this isn’t the case and although pH is important there are other factors that also need to be considered:

  • pH
  • Calcium Hardness
  • Total Alkalinity
  • TDS (total dissolved solids)

Remember that water balance can change with dilution of the swimming pool by rainwater, the introduction of fresh water to top the pool up, the chemicals used to oxidise and sanitise and by bathers using the pool – so keep checking the levels throughout the swimming season.
