Swimming Pool Water Quality

Let’s face it, swimming pools are a luxury, and if you own a swimming pool there are numerous benefits that can be enjoyed. Simply put, whether you are exercising, hosting a barbecue with friends and family or lounging in the pool, it is extremely important you know how to keep it clean and sanitized. Typically, most people think that by brushing the water tile line and interior finish, skimming and keeping proper chemistry is enough but it goes far beyond that. Swimming pools should be maintained at least once a week to keep them clean but depending on weather conditions sometimes maintenance will need to occur more than that. An example of this is if you live in an area with lots of trees and other vegetation you might need to maintain it more to keep leaves and other debris out of the pool. Honestly, on windy days we aren’t afraid to let you know we skim out leaves every day. We do this to prevent issues and phosphate buildup. But, on a weekly basis, the water tile line and the interior finish of the swimming pool should be brushed to prevent buildup and dirt. Debris should also be skimmed out of the swimming pool as soon as possible as it can change the chemistry in the swimming pool and could cause excess chlorine usage or an increase in phosphates.

One major benefit to having in your swimming pool is an automatic swimming pool cleaner. This will help remove debris from the bottom of the swimming pool and drastically reduce the amount of work that you need to do. Regularly check all equipment for leaks because this can not only waste water but it can also cause poor filtration which can lead to inadequate movement of water and the possibility of algae growth.

On top of all this, keeping adequate amounts of chlorine in the swimming pool, monitoring your pH, Total Alkalinity and keeping your CYA levels within a normal range is also essential for keeping your swimming pool clean and the water clear and free of contaminants. Depending on where you live, you are also going to need to consider Calcium Hardness (CH) and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) as well.

On the other hand, due to bather load, if you own a commercial swimming pool or like to swim in them, proper maintenance is extremely important along with adequate filtration. Water quality especially when it comes to commercial swimming pools has been in the news a lot. Weber Pools works with a variety of commercial swimming pool to keep them clean and ready to swim in. We also offer The Puripool Process which uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration to lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids, Cyanuric Acid, and waterborne diseases.
