Pool Maintenance

Maintaining Balance Is Critical

Over the course of the pool season, many factors will change the balance of your pool water. When water is added to the pool, whether by rain or your garden hose, the pool water is diluted and the strength of the chemicals is lowered. Remember, the key to effective pool care is to maintain a balance: a change in one area will affect the overall balance of the chemicals. The main water balance factor that will need to be adjusted is pH. 

Frequent water testing with a DPD or 3-Way Test Kit is important to monitor pH and other water balance factors. Test kit reagents lose strength over time so it is always best to start with a fresh test kit at the beginning of every pool season to achieve the most accurate results. 

Of course, the Sustain 3-part system helps make balancing your water easier.

Important: Your weekly Energizer treatment will be much more effective if your water has a pH reading of 7.2 before adding the Sustain Shield Energizer Tablets.  For best results, test water each week and make the necessary pH adjustments.
