Swimming Pool Safety Tips

Your local swimming pool provides a safe swimming environment with lifeguards on standby - however as a parent with young children in the water you still need to watch them closely.

It is very easy to be distracted when you are looking after a child in a pool - even more so if they have a brother or sister that is wanting your attention. Never take your eyes off your children and know where they are at all times.

Know your Swimming Pool...

What is Chlorine?
Chlorine Kills and controls bacteria and algae in water. Chlorine should be maintained between 1.5 – 5 ppm (parts per million) at all times, failure to do so will result in unsafe water for you and your family. At lower chlorine levels water may become green and cloudy and contain bacteria.

What is PH?
Ph is a measure of the balance between acid and alkali in your pool water. It is measured on a scale of 1-14. A Ph of 1 would be totally acidic, while a Ph of 14 would be totally alkaline.
Ph should be maintained between 7.2 – 7.8 at all times. Failure to maintain the Ph at this balance will result in poor water quality, swimmer discomfort and pool interior damage.

What is Stabiliser?
Stabiliser is often referred to as “sun screen”. Stabiliser reduces chlorine loss due to UV and heat. If the stabiliser level is to low, you would require twice as much chlorine to maintain your pool. Stabiliser should be maintained between 40 & 80 ppm.

Alkalinity?
Total alkalinity is a measure of the volume of alkali in pool water. Alkalinity should be maintained between 80 and 150 ppm. Maintaining the correct alkalinity will aid in keeping the water in correct balance prolonging the good appearance of your pool. Alkalinity is raised by adding sodium bi-carbonate and lowered with acid.

" Perfect" Pool rules to follow..
1. Test chlorine and Ph at least once a week.
2. Add chlorine in the evening and acid in the morning.
3. Never mix chemicals together.
4. The longer you run the filter the better the pool will look.
5. The majority of pool problems are due to a lack of chlorine, incorrect Ph balance, inefficient or insufficient filtration.
