Think Your Pool Water Is Okay Just Because It Is Clear? Think Again…


From Hayward

Most people think that because their swimming pool water is relatively clear that they have nothing to worry about.  In fact, we actually had a customer tell us just yesterday that he never checks the water if it is clear.  That same client was wondering why his heater may not have lasted as long as he thought it would.  Water chemistry for swimming pools can be daunting, and sometimes tricky.  The key is to stick to some basic measurements and to ask for help from your swimming pool service professional when in doubt.  This post from Hayward gives you 5 things that can and WILL affect the quality of your swimming pool water.  Some of these factors may surprise you.

2. Pool Chemicals: Some pool chemicals actually contain minerals that can contribute to a calcium problem.
