Learn why keeping your pool water balanced is so important.

One of the most important aspects of owning a pool is maintaining a safe water balance.  However, for inexperienced pool owners, this can also be one of the most confusing processes associated with owning a pool.  Here are some of the reasons why you need to keep your pool balanced.

  • Safety

If your pool uses chlorine, it’s important to make sure that your pool water is at the proper pH level.  If your pool water is not properly balanced, the chlorine won’t work as it’s supposed to.  This could mean that harmful germs and bacteria are spreading through your pool water and making it unsafe to use.

  • Comfort

If your pool’s water balance is off, it can cause irritation to your eyes and skin.  Additionally, unbalanced pool water can cause damage to your hair.  Make sure that your pH is neither too acidic nor too alkaline in order to make swimming a comfortable experience.

  • Corrosion

When your pool water is unbalanced, it can cause your pool liner, ladders, and handrails to deteriorate.  Over time, unbalanced pool water can also cause your pool pump to corrode as well.  Finally, this corrosion is not limited to your pool equipment and supplies.  Swimming in unbalanced pool water can cause your swimsuits and pool toys to break down as well.
