Swimming Pool Water Balancers

Water Balancers

WHAT IS WATER BALANCE?

Water balance is the subtle chemical equilibrium that makes recreational pool water possible. Without proper water balance, the natural chemical forces within your pool’s water can literally attack the molecular bonds that hold your lining together and attached to your pool walls, leaving it faded, brittle and broken.
Not a chemical engineer? Don’t worry, remember the simple acronym: P.AT.CH. – P(pH) AT(Alkalinity Total) CH(Calcium Hardness) for great pool water.

pH is the most important factor in water balance. The pH is a measurement of the relative acid or base of the water. Low pH can cause corrosion; attacking pool surfaces and equipment. High pH can cause scale build-up leaving unsightly deposits. Typical pH ranges in pools are 7.4-7.6. Test the pH at least twice a week. Daily testing recommended.
Alkalinity Total is a measure of the alkaline materials dissolved in the water, which helps keep the pH at the proper level. The recommended Total Alkalinity range for vinyl pools 80-120 ppm. Test the Total Alkalinity twice a month.
Calcium Hardness is the amount of dissolved minerals in the water. Calcium Hardness levels for viny pools is 200-400 ppm. Low Calcium Hardness causes equipment or liner corrosion. High Calcium Hardness causes cloudy water and scaling. Test Calcium Hardness levels monthly.

ProTeam Alkalinity Up

Alkalinity Up (pH Up): Raises total alkalinity in pool water. When alkalinity is at its ideal range the pH is less likley to change. Additionally, maintained alkalinity levels will help prevent corrosive or scale forming conditions in pool water.

  • Raises total alkalinity
  • Quick dissolving; powdered

Benefits

  • Prevents "pH Bounce"
  • Prevents corrosion on fixtures and equipment

Applications

  • In vinyl and fiberglass pools, total alkalinity levels should be between 125 - 150 ppm
  • In pools with plaster or similar surfaces, calcium hardness levels should be between 100 - 150 ppm

Available Sizes

  • 5 lb. pail
  • 10 lb. pail
  • 25 lb. pail
