Keeping your pool water in balance is an essential step to ensure a healthy and safe environment. Although at first glance this may seem like a simple task that will be solved by using chlorine, you are wrong.

One of the greatest mystery for pool owners is how to balance the chemicals. Many of us are struggling with this task, and it is a complex one, for real. But the balancing of pool chemicals does not have to be a complex task thanks to the NorCal Pool Service.

If any chemical in your pool is slightly off, it instantly has a domino effect on other chemicals, making you pool water as an ideal place for bacteria growth.

Here is the list of reasons Why Your Pool Chemicals Need Balanced Properly

1. Unbalanced pool chemicals are dangerous and lead to skin irritations and eye problems

Any time you dive in, you risk skin irritation since some chemicals are too strong. On the other hand, pools with properly balanced chemicals do not lead to such problems. The whole point of using chemicals inside your pool is to have clear and bacteria-free water, not to get eye problems.

2. Unbalanced pool chemicals can cause corrosion

Balanced water is essential if you don’t want everything you put in the pool to corrode, including all pool elements like pool ladder and everything else! Pull chemicals are strong.

3. You risk equipment damage if some of the chemicals are too high

Getting a new filter is not that cheap. Actually, it is quite expensive. And it’s normal. A filter is an essential part of your pool, so you need to do everything it takes to protect it and keep in good shape for proper working. Unbalanced pool water may lead to a breakdown of certain expensive equipment you could save beforehand.

4. The water is not appealing to people

One of the things all pool owners strive for is creating clear and sparkling water. Well, if the PH level of your water is too high, then your water will be gloomy and uninviting.

There are many different components that need to be properly balanced in your pool water. Whether you are trying to do this on your own or not, bear in mind that you must know the exact size of your pool and its capacity.

Balanced pool water is more than important

Balanced pool water is comfortable, healthy, safe, and clean to swim in. Furthermore, it will prevent any possible damage to the pool structure/equipment. Although you think about using chlorine, it will cause eye and skin irritation (if you use too much). While using too little chlorine is not effective at killing algae, bacteria, and all other contaminants.

The takeaway

An indispensable part if you want to have a safe and clean pool for swimming and relaxation is the proper balance of pool water. Without this, don’t even think about using the pool regularly because your health is at stake. It’s not only about aesthetic appeal, it’s also about money-saving, protection of your health, and full enjoyment in a completely serviced pool.
