The first step to maintaining a safe and healthy swimming pool is to keep its water balance at an acceptable level. A swimming pool with properly balanced water has the required PH level, full alkalinity and adequate Calcium hardness.
Imbalances can lead to burning red eyes or dry skin and itchy scalp, experiences that can ruin the pleasure of swimming. Pool Concepts is an experienced service provider in swimming pool maintenance in Durban. As such, we’ve been around a few pools, and have come up with our top 3 reasons as to why you should be obsessed with getting the correct water balance of your pool, just right:
Water balance ensures that the chlorine sanitizer used works effectively to get rid of germs and bacteria. Imbalanced levels put the health of your loved ones at risk.
Perfect water balance means that you minimize the risk of irritated eyes and skin whilst swimming. This requires the pool’s water not to be overly acidic or basic.
Protect pool surfaces and equipment
To protect against the destructive effects of corrosion to hand rails, ladders and equipment such as the pump, water balance needs to be maintained.
Whether it is to protect all users of the pool or the swimming pool itself, correct water balance means that you will continue to enjoy your pool for many years to come.
It takes regular pool maintenance to ensure the good health and safe use of your pool. This requires you to take time out of your day or week to check on water balance levels.
