It’s getting near that time of year, the weather is warming up, spring is in
the air and probably also in your pool, Have you noticed the pollen falling
and floating on the surface of your pool… If your filter hasn’t already been
recently serviced be aware that it will be serviced, inspected, cleaned and
recharged by the end of spring in anticipation of the warm summer months
ahead when you want the highest water quality & your pool will have it’s
highest bather load of the year. It was a rough windy winter this year and
your filter took a beating with all of the dirt and debris that entered your
pool water. We recommend filter service & cleaning twice a year, some
pools require more frequent filter cleanings depending on bather load and
the environment around your swimming pool.
Pop Quiz Hot Shot…
Question, what do you think is the most important chemical in your pool?
If you answered water (good-ol’ H2o) you are correct. Properly maintaining
the water level in your pool is crucial to your pools operation. Too low of a
water level the skimmer and pump lose prime and sucks ambient air,
loosing filtration, circulation and chlorination if you have a salt system
installed in your pool equipment.
Lack of chlorination, filtration and
circulation can cause algae blooms and turn a clear pool green in about 24
hours during summer months. Too high of a water level removes the
skimmers effectiveness to remove leaves dirt, oils, pollen and debris from
your pools surface. Please remember to also remove all of the play toys
from the pool after use, these have the ability to get pulled into the
skimmer and block the flow of water stopping your pools circulation and
All that Scientific Mumbo Jumbo…
Today’s skilled pool technicians use a lot of scientific terms and words,
most you are probably not familiar with. We pretty much have to become
chemistry majors. There are so many chemical compounds within your
pools water, and we need to be able to diagnose problems caused by an
imbalance of any one of them. To maintain perfect healthy clear sanitized
water everything must be in complete balance. A Majority of you are
probably familiar with Chlorine levels and pH, but there is so much more to
pool chemistry. Each month we will choose one chemical compound that is
within your pools water and explain its name, purpose, causes and effects
of that chemical compound being out of balance and what is done to bring it
back into balance. We will also showcase one new pool product each
This month we discuss the chemical Cyanuric Acid, more commonly
known as pool conditioner or chlorine stabilizer. Cyanuric Acid is used to
keep needed chlorine from escaping due to the ultraviolet effects of the sun
providing a chemical shield around each chlorine molecule, shielding
chlorine from rapid destruction by the sun's UV radiation. Although Cyanuric
Acid does not keep this from happening entirely, it will prohibit the breaking
down of chlorine in your pool significantly.
Think of it as Sun Block for your pools chlorine. Cyanuric Acid along with
a proper pH level increases the effectiveness of your pools chlorine. A
proper CYA range is 30-80 ppm (parts per million). A level above 100 ppm
can render the chlorine in the pool useless also called “chlorine lock”
resulting in cloudy turbid water or algae along with other water chemistry
problems. A stabilizer level of under 20 ppm is not enough to protect the
chlorine in the pool and will result in needing significantly more chlorine in
order to maintain a sanitized pool. Cyanuric acid comes in liquid and
granular forms. It is added and distributed directly into your pool water
circulation. Cyanuric Acid should be measured and levels be brought to
proper ranges at the beginning of your pool season. The only way to bring
down too high of a CYA level is to drain 1/4 to 1/3 of your pools water and
refill with fresh fill water, you can always add conditioner but there is no
chemical to reduce the level and you cannot remove it without draining
therefore it is recommended to have your Cyanuric Acid levels checked at
least twice a year by a skilled professional pool technician.
