Step 1: Balance your pool

WHY? Balancing your pool water ensures that it has an optimal pH level, including total alkalinity and mineral content levels. Keep your pool water balanced to:

  • Reduce maintenance costs and chlorine consumption
  • Prevent equipment corrosion
  • Helps prevent skin and eye irritation due to low or high pH levels
  • Avoid pH bounce due to rain, swimmer load or other factors
  • Prevent the damage that scaling can cause to surfaces and equipment
  • Allow residual chlorine to work most efficiently
  • Provide a comfortable, enjoyable experience for swimmers
