During the bathing season and to avoid the proliferation of microorganisms and algae it is advisable to disinfect the water keeping in residual free chlorine between 0.5 and 1.0 ppm in the water. To do this, you can resort to different techniques such as chlorine tablets, active oxygen or a section of salt electrolysis. The cleaning of the water will have to be done without bathers and it is advisable to allow 12 to 24 hours to pass through a dichloro granulated shock treatment and adding liquid flocculant. You can also brush walls and pool floor that together with a cleaner will leave a good result in the disinfection of the water.
2. CLEAR WATER
In order for the pool water to have a crystalline color, certain very small particles that appear in the water must be removed. By adding a flocculant, these particles can be retained so that the oxidized metal ions are also removed. Be prepared to bathe in an inviting pool where you can appreciate the background with clarity.
3. PH ADJUSTMENT
Water PH is key to ensuring a safe bath. That is why it should not be too high or low to prevent bathers from suffering irritation and damage to the skin. The exact value to enjoy clean water is between 7.2 and 7.6.
4.CUTTING THE FILTER
One of the reasons why the pool filter should be kept clean is so that the water quality does not worsen. For the maintenance of the filters, cleanings and disinfections must be carried out with backwashing of the sand before starting the season in which it will be used at least once a year, for example between April and May. In the same way, it is also important that every 5 years the filter medium is replaced with silica sand and the filter is descaled.
