The appeal of any swimming pool is in the water itself. It's what we're drawn to, it's the reason we love swimming pools! Understanding the basics of pool chemicals is essential to maintaining (and enjoying) your swimming pool. Factors including algae, body oils and lotions, pH, hardness, etc. in the water can impact swimmers as well as the life of your pool and pool equipment. Knowing how to read and manipulate various chemical levels in your pool water will save you time, money, effort and frustration.
Every swimming pool, whether in-ground, above ground, indoors or outdoors, requires the same basic inventory of pool chemicals, just at different concentrations depending on the size, use, location and type of pool it is. The vast majority of pool chemicals fall into one of the following classes: sanitizers, pool shock, algaecides, water balancers and clarifiers and cleaners. At PoolProducts.com, we carry a complete line of top-quality swimming pool chemicals and spa and hot tub chemicals at the lowest prices available. And many of our most popular chemicals are available with delivery in as little as 1-day!
Balancing Chemicals: These chemicals are designed to increase pH, reduce pH, adjust alkalinity levels, condition and stabilize pool water and neutralize pool chlorine. A good water test kit will enable you to read specific levels and make adjustments based on those readings. For example, conditioners (also known as stabilizers) can shield chlorine against destructive UV damage; chlorine neutralizers can help remove excess chlorine from water: pH & alkalinity adjusters can easily add pH or reduce acidity: and hardness chemicals can adjust calcium levels.
