It allows you not to change the water frequently, reducing the cost of swimming pool management and maintenance.

Chemical care

In terms of chemical indicators, it is essential to keep the 4 values of your pools.

  • PH (Acidity/Basicity) This is the most important and primary indicator of water quality. Whatever medicine is added, its pH impact must be considered. The optimal pH is between 7.2 and 7.8, becoming slightly alkaline. A low PH value will corrode the equipment, too high will directly affect the chlorine sterilization efficiency.


  • Free Chlorine: In order to ensure clean, safe and sterile pool water, chlorine should be added regularly (manually or automatically by machine).


  • Calcium Hardness: the calcium content of the pool water, the general pool water hardness is the calcium hardness, which can be simply understood as the difference between hard water and soft water. The calcium hardness value is recommended to maintain between 220 to 350ppm.


  • Total Alkalinity: The total alkalinity of a swimming pool allows the pool water to be maintained at the right pH level, too low a TA value will make the pH very unstable, but too high a TA value will gradually raise the pH level.
