Have a healthy pool

Have a healthy pool or spa:

Having trouble keeping the dreaded green away? Well just a few easy steps to find out why and solve your troubles. 

  1. Check your (FREE) chlorine. No, that's not chlorine your next door neighbor gave you. It is the chlorine that is free to kill all the stuff you don't want in your pool water. You should have a GOOD test kit that checks for free chlorine, total chlorine, pH, total alkalinity, acid demand, total hardness and for conditioner (stabilizer). Now you don't have to do all the test each week, just chlorine, pH and acid demand. Do the others once a month.
  2. Check your total chlorine (note if there is a difference between the two).
  3. Check your pH and acid demand.
  4. Check your alkalinity.
  5. Check your hardness.
  6. Check your conditioner.

If your pool is in balance you should be in the following ranges:

  1. Chlorine demand 1.5 ppm to 3.0 ppm
  2. pH 7.4 to 7.6 with no acid demand
  3. Alkalinity for plaster 80ppm to 120 ppm, Vinyl, fiberglass or painted pools 100ppm to 140 ppm.
  4. Hardness 250ppm to 500ppm with a max of 1000ppm ( drain and refill when you reach 1000ppm).
  5. Conditioner min 40ppm and a max 100ppm (this keeps the sun from robbing your chlorine!

I'm not an expert of it so I'm delighted to know about the fixing of fiberglass to create a healthy pool. Thanks for the share to give a good support.

As a FSBO retailer, the key concerning successfully shifting your property in addition to saving money on real estate agent revenue is knowledge. The more you already know, the more stable your property sales effort will likely be. One area when this is particularly crucial is inspection reports.

The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and 'skin' the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.
