Make sure that you maintain the ideal chemical levels for your pool. Swimming in a clean, balanced pool will ensure that you have the most enjoyable time. Follow the chart below to make sure that you have the right pH, alkalinity, calcium hardness, and stabilizer levels or the right pool chemicals to get them there!
|CHEMICAL||IDEAL LEVEL||TO RAISE||TO LOWER|
|2.0||Shock the pool||Turn chlorinator down|
|Add soda ash||*Add muriatic acid (diluted)|
|80-100 ppm||Add baking soda
|**Add muriatic acid|
|250-500 ppm||Add calcium chloride||Drain pool and refill|
|20-50 ppm||Add Cyanuric Acid||Drain pool and refill|
* Add acid by spreading around pool or pour into pool in front of return jet. Pool should be running when doing this so the acid spreads throughout the pool as rapidly as possible.
** Pour acid into a three to five foot circle in the deepest part of the pool while the pump is off. Allow to set for at least 20 minutes before turning pump on.
