Get some more chlorine and chemicals to keep your family safe during the summer!Pool Chlorine and Chemicals For Your Above Ground Pool

One of the most frequently asked questions about chlorine is which is better; liquid or powder chlorine? There are advantages and disadvantages to each system so it’s more of a personal preference. Liquid chlorine is generally the easiest to use because you just pour it into the pool. It is efficient and cheap compared to other pool cleaning methods.

However, for smaller pools, liquid chlorine may damage the lining from its pure strength of it. Powder chlorine is the most popular type used by owners in personal pools. It is an easy way to use sanitizer for your pool. However, it is often more expensive than liquid chlorine.

Why are chlorine and chemicals important?

Chlorine is the chemical that kills bacteria and algae in a pool to make the water cleaner and safer for the swimmers. Without chlorine, deadly pathogens can be contracted through contaminated water. Pathogens such as E. coli, salmonella, and Crypto are waterborne and can become fatal. Luckily, outbreaks are rare because of the use of chlorine and careful watch on the water’s pH content and alkalinity.

Closing A Pool in 4 Steps and 4 Days

*Revision note 2017: Viscount West is now Sunny’s Pools & More*

The end of the summer can be devastating to pool loungers everywhere. Don’t fret! Summer will be back soon. Until then, preserve the summer glory by taking the necessary steps to properly close your swimming pool in Michigan.

Day 1:

Step 1: Remove all in ground or above ground pool accessories from the pool and test your water!

Before closing your pool, you need to make sure that the pH level in the pool is between 7.6-7.8, the pool alkalinity is 80-100 and the calcium hardness is 150-250. You also need to shock your pool with a chlorine shock to bring the chlorine level to 10-12 ppm. Then, give the pool time to come down to its normal level around 1.5-3.5 ppm before adding your cover or winterizing chemicals. This is a good time to properly winterize your pool to keep the chemistry of the pool on track during its off season.

Is your water balanced? Then, move on to Day 2!
