Did you know that a heavy rain shower can throw the chemicals in your pool water out of balance? When the amount of water in a pool changes, whether due to heavy rain or evaporation, the balance of pool chemicals must be adjusted to maintain ideal levels. Here’s why it’s important:
- Ideal levels of pool chemicals prevent dangerous bacteria from thriving in pool water;
- Water that is chemically out of balance can actually damage parts of a pool;
- Eyes and skin can become irritated easily when pool chemicals are not balanced.
Testing your pool’s water frequently is highly recommended, and using the appropriate amount of pool chemicals to bring the water back into balance is an important step in keeping the water safe and your pool in good working order.
