Balancing your Swimming Pool is Key.


Chlorine is the most common chemical used to sanitise water. Chlorine levels should be between 1 and 3 parts per million. #Chlorine “acts as a rapid and persistent sanitizer, an effective algaecide and a strong oxidizer of undesired contaminants.” In other words, chlorine does it all to keep your pool water clean, clear, and safe to swim in. All the other pool chemicals work to keep the water in balance so that the chlorine can do its job. Remember Balance is key. If you are needing Chlorine order it from


Managing the Ph balance of your pool water is critical for your pool chemicals to do their job. Remember the recommendation is to have #Ph between 7.2 and 7.8. When you need to increase your pool’s Ph use #Alkalinity Up (otherwise known as Bi-Carbonate of Soda) to raise it. In cases when you need to decrease your pool’s Ph use #Pool Acid. Remember Balance is key. If you are needing Pool Acid order it from

Cyanuric Acid

On its own, chlorine doesn’t like to hang around in water for long especially when exposed to direct sunlight. That’s why you need to use #cyanuric acid also known as #stabiliser or #UV Blockout. UV Blockout helps to keep chlorine in your pool water for longer. Meaning a Sanitised and Healthier Pool equates to having to buy or use less chlorine. Many chlorine tablets contain cyanuric acid (otherwise known as #Stabilised Chlorine) but it’s important not to have too little or too much UV Blockout in your pool water the recommendation is 50 parts per million. If the level of Cyanuric Acid is to high this can slow down the effectiveness of Chlorine. Remember Balance is key. If you are needing UV Blockout order it from

Alkalinity helps to balance the Ph Level of your pool water. Alkalinity and Ph have a very close relationship with each other in regard to chemical balance. To increase the Total Alkalinity (TA) Level #Alkalinity Up can be added to the pool when it falls below 100 ppm. Pool Acid can be used to lower the total alkalinity of your pool’s water (it works equally well for reducing pH). Remember Balance is key. If you are needing Bi-Carbonate of Soda / Alkalinity Up for your Pool order it from


Adds to the overall Healthiness of your Pool Water. #Calcium Hardness should be between 180 and 240 parts per million. Calcium Hardness Prevents leaks in Pipe work according to the Langelier Saturation Index. It also helps to prevent cracks in Concrete, Tiled and Mosaic pools. Remember Balance is key. If you are needing Calcium Hardness for your Pool order it from


To take the hassle out of constantly having to add liquid chlorine or chlorine tablets to your pool water consider a salt #chlorinator. Automated Salt Water Chlorinators transform the #salt crystals in your pool water into chlorine. This is by far the most cost-effective way for sanitising pool water. Salt Levels in the pool water must be according to the Manufacturer’s instructions of the Salt Chlorinator. Remember Balance is key.

You may not use them very often but keeping all of these swimming pool #chemicals on hand means you can quickly address problems as and when they occur. The levels of swimming pool chemicals need to be checked frequently during the busy summer months when swimming increases. If you are needing to order Mineral Salts for your Pool order it from
