The correct value should be between 7.2 and 7.6 to ensure that the other measures applied function effectively. Tablets chlorine, salt electrolysis and active oxygen used to disinfect water If the pH of the water is too high , bathers may suffer irritation of the skin and eyes, the effect of disinfectants decrease, limescale will form and the waters muddy them . Conversely, if the value of pH is too low will increase the risk of corrosion, there will be a deterioration of the glass, and irritation of eyes and skin can also occur.
Water disinfection – water of our pool can become the ideal means of life for a variety of microorganisms. The important thing is to maintain the free chlorine residual of between 0.5-1.0 ppm in the water to be disinfected and have disinfectant power. In this way, we will prevent cloudy water and algae appear.
To maintain continuous disinfection process throughout the bathing season there are several methods: chlorine tablets, saline apparatus with active oxygen or electrolysis . In case of encountering any problems of turbidity or algae, it is advisable to perform a shock treatment with granular dichloro and add liquid flocculant, in order to recover good water status. After applying the product, it is important to filter for a few hours, possibly brush the walls and floor of the pool , and wait 12-24 hours to precipitate all impurities, and by bringing all the precipitate cleaner directly to the drain without passing through the filter.
