Here are a few Pool Water Maintenance Tips for the Best Pool Water Experience Ever
Weekly Pool Maintenance
Keeping your pool water in the appropriate Ph range is critical for a healthy beautiful pool. In fact, a proper pH level is essential for chlorine to perform its job correctly. Ph is controlled by adding an acid or an alkali, for example, baking soda to modify Ph levels. Incorrect pH levels are not only unhealthy for pool water, but they can also irritate skin, damage pool equipment and affect pool surfaces and anything with which the water comes in contact.
Modifying Ph with The Chlorine Genie System is simple. Open a valve and the unit will dispense chemicals to modify pool ph. The unit produces products for Ph pool control along with chlorine necessary to sanitize your pool.
Bacterial and algal problems are kept largely in check by proper chlorination. Pools that do not maintain adequate chlorine levels quickly become breeding grounds for bacteria. The range of ‘free’ chlorine that has to be kept in the pool is usually 1.0-3.0 ppm. Standard pool chlorination systems go through big swings in free chlorine levels due to pool use, weather conditions, and the maintenance schedules of chlorine application. These big swings in chlorine can be leveled out with systems like the salt water pools and the Chlorine Genie Chlorine Generator because the systems can be set to continually manufacture chlorine daily to meet the needs of the pool and conditions. Continuous coverage eliminates periods of dramatic over and under chlorination.
Pools are often given a dose of algaecide every week to control algal contaminants. This addition is just another hassle for most pool owners and is easily overcome with the addition of copper/silver ionization systems like the one employed in the Chlorine Genie System.
Cloudiness in the pool water can be a problem for some pool systems. This bothersome uncertain water problem can be solved by just adding a dose of clarifier when necessary to your pool water. Clarifying agents make the tiny particles stick to each other, to form larger particles which can then be more readily filtered from your water.
Monthly Pool Water Maintenance
Pool Calcium Content: Water that falls below accepted standards for calcium becomes corrosive and destructive to pool surfaces and equipment. Pool water with an overabundance of calcium results in the formation of unsightly scale on pool surfaces making your pool unsightly. This evaluation must be conducted by a pool professional and the testing service should be available at any good local pool store.
Other Pool Maintenance Tips

Pool Skimmer Basket: The pool’s skimmer basket must be monitored regularly. Inspect the basket and clear any debris. This will keep fresh water circulating in the pool at all times.

As Needed Problem Solving
