Pool Chemicals

There are several aspects of swimming pool maintenance to consider, whether you have an above ground pool or an in ground pool. From cleaning leaves and debris to keeping the water clean and balanced, it is essential to understand the cleaning supplies that are necessary to keep your swimming pool healthy. When it comes to these amounts, among the most important are the various chemicals to be used in the cleaning of the swimming pool.

Most swimming pools are maintained through the use of chlorine. The water in a swimming pool must have a consistent pH balance, and too often it is not consistent at all. Weekly and daily, homeowners must check their pool's pH level several times per week to make sure that it stays balanced and clean. Chlorine and other chemicals are necessary to make sure that the water that you and your family swim in stays safe. There are specific figures that each swimming pool needs to follow, and these needs to have adhered carefully. A swimming pool that is filtered with chlorine takes a vigilant eye to ensure that the water stays safe and clean to use.

After a long winter, you cannot wait to see the sunshine. The same idea goes for your pool: to recharge your pool for the summer season, you'll need the right chemicals for the job. At Pools Above Ground, there are plenty of chemicals to get your pool going again. The Pool Chemical Start Up Kit provides enough substances to jumpstart a swimming pool up to 15,000 gallons. Included in the kit is Fast Shock, Algaecide 50, and one pint of a clarifier. All necessary instructions are included, and your pool will be up and running in no time. The Pool Chemical Package for both small and large pool seasons are also available for swimming pools of varying sizes.

Testing kits will help you to test your water's pH level weekly and to test its calcium hardness and cyanuric acid level monthly. If you find that the water is pH imbalanced, you will need to purchase either pH reducer or pH increaser, depending on what your water needs. Chemical dispensers, such as floaters, use chlorine tabs to clean your pool with these chemicals.

At Pools Above Ground, we carry the Pentair Rainbow 320 Automatic In-Line Chlorine/Bromine Feeder. This high-quality chemical dispenser will serve to make maintenance much easier and less like a chore. It can hold 11 large, small bromine or trichlor tablets, or 98 small tablets.

When it comes to keeping pool chemicals on hand, homeowners should have chlorine tablets, pool shock, test strips or a kit, and both pH increaser and reducer around. Pools will need other chemicals, but as mentioned, speak to a professional about which other vital substances that you will need to keep your pool's water clean and balanced. Pool owners can find everything that they need to keep their pool clean and safe at Pools Above Ground.
