Balancing the water chemistry
Chlorine isn't the only thing your pool needs to stay clean and clear.
You’ll keep track of 5 main aspects of your water chemistry to ensure they stay within these ranges:
- Total alkalinity: 80–120 ppm
- pH: 7.2–7.8
- Calcium hardness: 100–300 ppm fiberglass / 200-400 for vinyl and concrete
- Stabilizer (cyanuric acid): 20–50 ppm
- Chlorine: 2.0–3.0 ppm
They all affect each other, so follow that specific order when you test and modify the water. It’ll save you a headache.
