We love to splash in the pool, but could you step into a pool that creates splashes of polluted and dirty water full of bacteria and algae? Well, no, we don’t even want to think about it. Those who have a pool need to know how to clean a green swimming pool. And they will also know that clearing it to the max CAN be quite challenging most of the time. Cleaning the pool and its surroundings is easy, but what about the pool’s most important element? What would we do to keep the water flowing? The pool water is undoubtedly the most important element that requires the maximum cleaning effort and takes care of maximum infiltration and contamination.
Tips for cleaning your pool using water chemistry
Don’t you think maintaining water chemistry is a big deal and should be simplified? Pool water chemistry is not just a challenge for professionals! It’s simple, and trusts me, if you follow the proper guidelines and take care of disinfecting and chlorinating your pool water, cleaning and maintaining the water is a quick fix. Now let’s move on to some simple tips for sanitizing and maintaining your pool water chemistry. We have them listed below. Let’s see.
• The most important thing is to keep the water clean. Once in the pool, make sure to keep the pool clean. This could be a weekly or monthly task depending on your pool usage. Make sure the bottom of the pool is free of dirt and debris.
• Then comes the chlorine and chlorination of the water. Chlorine can be added depending on the water. You will also receive tablets and liquid bleach to use. Look for good quality chlorine in the right concentration. Saltwater chlorinators are a popular option that helps disinfect pool water.
• Once the chlorine task is complete, the used chlorine will no longer be effective, and you will need to add fresh chlorine to the water to kill the used chlorine, or chloramines, as they are called. You will need to circulate fresh chlorine in the tank to keep the water treated.
• To prevent chlorine from igniting due to sunlight and other factors, a stabilizer such as cyanuric acid can be used to help suppress chlorine dissipation while maintaining the disinfecting properties of chlorine.
• It is also important to maintain the alkalinity of the water. The correct amount of salt in the water will allow the chlorine to work effectively. The alkaline balance of water is responsible for its pH balance. If there is no balance in the water’s pH, the chlorine will not be as effective.
• Check pool water for chlorine, pH, bromine, and alkalinity at least twice a week when the pool is used frequently. If you have any difficulty checking your pool water’s chemical balance, you can take a pool water sample from a pool shop where they can test the water for you.
• The home test method is a test strip in which you immerse the strip in water and observe the color change. It will show you the imbalance in the chemical composition of the pool water if any. There is another effective method of testing water, and most people will prefer it to the strip test, called the drop pool test. A digital tester can also help you get the correct pH value for your water.
