Weekly Pool Cleaning In Escondido And The Waters Chemistry
With every weekly pool service visit in Escondido, our technicians clean the pool of debris. On top of that, they check and balance all necessary pool water chemistry. Because there is no governing body regulating how this is done, it is often not right. ProTouch Pool Services takes a different approach from most other pool service companies. We follow a procedure of what to test and what to add every week. Unfortunately, homeowners are not quite sure of what is right as they have been told many variations of what is required. Over the time of having their swimming pool each pool cleaning company has told them how they do it and likely was insufficient or just wrong.
We are here to help by giving information about pool water chemistry and what is really required. Below, we will go over the things that we test for and why. By following these procedures our pool service technicians ensure that your pool is safe to use always.
Chlorine Levels To Maintain Sanitization
When testing for chlorine, it is very important to always have a residual level of chlorine. Most pool service techs do not understand that zero chlorine may not be zero. If your reading no chlorine, it may even be a negative range. When this happens the pool may need much more chlorine than the pool service technician adds. This is often why they come back every week to test and not have chlorine in the water.
pH Is High Or Low And What To Do
Your pH is the acidity or alkaline range of your pool water. If this range is high for any length of time, you may encounter calcium build up. When the levels are high it also reduces the effectiveness of your chlorine. When the levels are low, it can be corrosive to your pool equipment and surfaces. By adjusting the acid demand during each pool service visit, the acid should be diluted.
Alkalinity And It’s Purpose
Alkalinity always need to be tested and adjusted when out to clean the pool. The alkalinity is what helps buffer your waters pH. When this range is out of balance, you may get fluctuations in your pH ranges. When adding acid to adjust alkalinity, you will also want to add it appropriately as to bring down the alkalinity.If the levels are high, you will then add sodium bicarbonate in the amount that is required.
Phosphates that can exacerbate pool algae
When checking for phosphates in your pool during the cleaning process, we always look to keep it below 120. 120 ppb and below prevents phosphates providing a food source to the pool algae. Any range above 120 is a open door for pool algae to spread more rapidly. We always test and add phosphate remove to prevent the need to perform a pool algae cleaning procedure. This also keeps our pool service technician from any unnecessary brushing.On top of that, pool algae is an eye soar and no one wants to have algae when paying for a professional pool service.
Cyanuric Acid The Good And The Bad
Cyanuric acid or conditioner is probably the most important chemical range. If this chemical level is to low, your chlorine will dissipate to quickly. When this level is above the recommended maximum, it will lock out the chlorine. This means it will prevent the chlorine from being able to work effectively. Also when this level is to high, it can damage your pool equipment and pool surfaces. When providing pool service in Escondido, we always make sure to test and adjust this chemical range. We are always looking to protect your family, friends, and large financial investment.
