    How to increase the alkalinity in the pool

    Alkalinity is one of the most critical chemical parameters of swimming pool water. It is often ignored when you start, but sooner or later, you have to learn to master it. We will see the consequence of too-low alkalinity in the pool and how to increase it. There’s only one way to measure pool alkalinity…

  • How to lower too-high alkalinity in the pool?

    How to lower too-high alkalinity in the pool?

    The alkalinity is helpful in the swimming pool, but the level must not be too high. When the alkalinity is too high, it is more difficult to modify the water chemistry. We will see here how to lower the alkalinity of the pool. Decreasing alkalinity often goes hand in hand with pool pH. What is…

    The chlorine stabilizer in the pool (CYA): ultimate guide, and ideal rate

    The stabilizer is an essential parameter for maintaining good quality water. The stabilizer is helpful for a chlorine pool and a salt pool. The level of chlorine stabilizer must always be within a specific range. If the pool stabilizer is too low, it must be raised. When the pool stabilizer is too high, it must…

  • Too-high or Too-low ORP level in the pool: ultimate guide

    Too-high or Too-low ORP level in the pool: ultimate guide

    ORP is a common measurement in the swimming pool. It lets you know if the pool is disinfectant. The pool’s ORP level must be within a specific range, neither too high nor too low. We will see how to increase the ORP rate in a salt, chlorine, or bromine pool. Compatibility. ORP measurement only works…
