Four factors contribute to balanced pool water: pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness and temperature. Unbalanced pool water can end up costing you time and money. If your chemical levels are too low, the water could attack your pool lining and equipment. On the other hand, if you’re overusing chemicals it could lead to scale formation on the surface of your pool and on your pool accessories. It can also affect the sanitisation process. The swimming pool and spa experts at your local Swimart can talk you through pH, alkalinity and much more, and teach you how to ensure your water balance is always at an optimum level.
