Understanding the Importance of Your Pool’s Chemical Balance

200288910-001Although your pool uses a filtration system to keep the water clean and clear, the filter cannot do this big job alone. Swimming pools also need several chemicals to keep the water clean and safe for swimming. However, the right balance of pool chemicals is necessary to ensure this process works properly so you can continue to enjoy your pool for years to come.

Keeps the Water Safe

Water is one of the most basic environments on Earth. As such, it encourages the growth of numerous microorganisms, including bacteria that could potentially affect your health. Pool chemicals make your pool a great place for you and your family, but an inhospitable place for harmful pathogens that may cause infections or illness. If your pool’s chemicals aren’t balanced properly, however, you may think your water is safe when it could actually be harboring bacteria growth.

Keeps the Water Comfortable

The wrong balance of pool chemicals can also affect the comfort of your pool. Too high a chemical concentration or the wrong pH can cause irritation to your skin, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. If your water isn’t properly chemically balanced, it may appear cloudy and affect your enjoyment of your pool, as well as its overall aesthetics.

Keeps Your Pool in Good Shape

Pool chemicals play an important role in keeping your pool in good shape. The wrong balance of chemicals can damage the materials in your pool over time, leading to leaks, premature wear, and other problems. Over the long term, poor chemical balance can lead to more numerous repairs or replacements to your pool to maintain its appearance and ensure it is safe for swimming activities.
