As the summer weather gets closer – the sun is shining and the air is warmer – you’re probably ready to start taking advantage of your pool! As the heat of summer approaches, keeping your pool water clean and, even more importantly, keeping it balanced becomes more important than ever. This might seem like a no-brainer, but in order to make the most of your pool and keep it well maintained you should keep your pool water well balanced

Hygiene and Safety 

Having a pool with unbalanced water can create an environment where the water grows either too acidic or filled with too much alkaline, which in turn can cause irritation to your skin, eyes, and hair. Regularly testing your pool water and taking action to keep it balanced is a proactive measure in maintaining a healthy water quality for you to swim in as much as you want all summer long. 

Preserving Your Pool Equipment

Another important reason to keep your pool water maintained and balanced is to prevent any buildup or damage to the components of your pool. Not keeping your pool water balanced can lead to corrosive water that eats away at the surface of your pool. It can also cause scale to form, which over time can damage the parts and components of your swimming pool and pool equipment. Keeping your water balanced, maintained, and clean can prevent this damage.

Keeping Stocked On Pool Test Strip and Chemicals

Maintaining balanced pool water may not be the most glamorous aspect of pool ownership, but it’s undeniably crucial for a fun and quality swimming experience. Testing your pool water ensures comfort, preserves your equipment, safeguards health and safety, enhances water clarity, and even saves you money on maintenance. Making sure you have the tools and chemicals you need to accomplish this is the first step in proper water balancing. Having alkalinity, pH, calcium hardness, and stabilizer chemicals on hand allow you to be ready to keep your pool water balanced.
