The sun is out on a hot summer day. You run to take a dip in your pool to cool off and just as you are about to jump in, you see that your pool is cloudy and discolored. The bottom and sides of the pool are an odd color, like algae. What has happened to your pool? It looks like your swimming pool chemicals are not in balance.
You know that you need to add chemicals to your pool, but have you ever wondered why? Pools can require a lot of upkeep and maintenance, so is it worth keeping up on that maintenance? This is why swimming pool chemicals are so important:
- Comfort – If there is too much chlorine in a pool it will smell strongly of chlorine and cause eye and skin irritation. When the pH of the swimming pool is off, it will be uncomfortable to swim in.
- Corrosion – If the swimming pool chemicals are not in the right balance, you can get corrosion of ladders, handrails, pool equipment and eventually the pool liner.
- Safety – Without the proper balance of chemicals, the water will become full of bacteria and not safe to swim in.
With proper care and maintenance of swimming pool chemicals your swimming pool will stay safe for the littlest of swimmers. You won’t have to worry about corrosion or uncomfortable swimming situations. Stop by S & H Pools to find all the swimming pool chemicals you need.
