Importance of the Correct Chemical Balance in Your Pool
Your personal aquatic getaway on your property must be properly maintained to ensure it is clean and safe for swimming. By “safe,” this means your pool water should be correctly balanced or you and your swimmers may be in danger due to the hazardous water. Additionally, an imbalance of chemicals can damage your pool resulting in staining and corrosion on the pool’s concrete floor and sidewalls, corrosion of metal components of equipment and damage to vinyl liners.
At Pacific Clear Pool and Spa in Temecula, CA, we routinely educate our clients on why it’s necessary to have a pool’s water analyzed for imbalances by a trained, professional pool technician. If you have a pool or you are considering having a pool added to your property, there is a great deal of information about pool water safety you should know to keep your pool a safe, relaxing place for all.
