When owning a pool, keeping your chemicals balanced is one of the most important things you can do to maintain a healthy pool.  Most pool owners incorrectly assume that the only reason for balanced pool chemicals is to keep the water clean and sanitary.  While there is truth to this, it’s also helpful to extend the life of your pool liner. If your water is not balanced correctly on a consistent basis, then the chemicals could have adverse reactions on your pool liner.  

Unbalanced water can cause patterns and colors to fade in a short period of time.  It can also cause your liner to become dry and brittle, which could then lead to holes or wrinkling of your pool liner.  You don’t need to be a scientist to take care of your pool chemicals.  You just need to make sure you are testing your water on a regular basis and maintaining the proper levels of chemicals for the safety of swimmers and the longevity of your liner.  Just because the water looks clear does not mean that all the levels are where they should be.

We suggest that you test your water a minimum of 1 – 2 times a week to ensure a properly and consistently chemically-balanced pool.
