Proper Pool Care Can Make for a Safe Environment!
...Did you know that you can get strep throat from your swimming pool or spa if the water isn't properly cared for???
Bacteria that can cause skin rashes, strep throat, and even herpes can be found in a pool that has not been well maintained.Algae are tiny plants fed by phosphates that can grow in your pool. Algae can be green, yellow, red, or brown. They are often covered in a slime layer, which becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.
pH Levels: Acid Environments Vs. Alkaline Environments
Your water's pH is essential to controlling Scale-Forming Minerals that coat the pool surface with calcium. Keeping your pH at a proper level is certainly one of the most important aspects of pool care. Proper pH levels prevent problems like excessive scale build up on your tiles, walls, and steps. Balanced water levels also help prevent red irritated eyes after swimming.
Proper Alkalinity balance is essential to proper swimming pool services and relates directly to your
pH levels. If your alkalinity is too low, your plaster may become stained and/or etched. Low alkalinity also corrodes the metals in your pumping equipment, greatly reducing its useful life.
