If you own a pool, then you know that the water balance is crucial to keeping your pool clean and clear. To ensure balanced water chemistry in pools, there are three main factors: pH level, Total Alkalinity (TA), and Calcium Hardness. These elements work together to keep the chlorine from being depleted over time which protects against algae growth. We walk through how to test each of these levels so that you can maintain a healthy pool all season long!
Some brands of alkalinity increaser are just sodium bicarbonate which is baking soda. Learn when and how much baking soda to add to your pool.
