Pool Chemistry

  • Check your water balance at least once a week 
  • Use a DPD type test kit that test free chlorine. Avoid the ones that only test dead and free chlorine combined
  • Shock pool once a week or after heavy use
  • Don't overuse tablets they can cause your C.Y.A. to skyrocket which will keep chlorine from being less effective
  • Don't use chemicals from big box stores or on-line they have a lot of additives and are not as strong.


  • Start adding a preventive algaecide in pool when temperatures reach above 80 degrees
  • Seal cracks in deck and gaps in pool to prevent water from eroding dirt around pool
  • Clean leaves, weeds etc. around pool equipment to prevent fire, and unwanted pest.
  • Store chemicals in safe where kids and animals can not get to them. 
  • Never store acid and chlorine together it can make a lethal gas.
