Water Chemistry Products and Information

ChlorinE


Our Shock Product: Mursatt™ Calhypo

  • You always want to have a relatively high chlorine level to protect against algae formation 
  • To increase your chlorine levels, you must add shock to the pool
  • Algae eat the chlorine causing the level to decrease, therefore when chlorine levels plummet it is an indicator that you must super-chlorinate the pool to fight off any algae
  • High temperatures promote algae and they generally result in a greater consumption of chlorine
  • Rain water will also decrease your chlorine count
  • Free chlorine does the hard work of killing off bacteria and oxidizing contaminants (when you add shock you are adding free chlorine)
  • Combined chlorine is when free chlorine combines with contaminants such as oils, swimmer waste, etc. This form of chlorine has little to no sanitizing ability
  • Total chlorine is the sum of combined chlorine and free chlorine
  • If your total chlorine count is higher than your free chlorine, you have combined chlorine in the water
  • You need to super-chlorinate your water because high dosages of free chlorine will oxidize (destroy) the combined chlorine

Stabilizers


Pucks and Super Pucks

  • You want to keep the stabilize level at around 50 ppm because this is the most effective level of maintaining clear water and protecting against the chlorine
  • A stabilizer acts as a sunblock for the chlorine protecting it from UV rays
  • You must initially add stabilizer in granular form to a pool by putting it inside a nylon in your skimmer
  • The stabilizer level is then maintained by the use of regular-sized pucks
  • If the stabilizer count is too high, you must add water

Alkalinity and pH


Mursatt™ Buffer, Easy-Up, Easy-Down

  • If alkalinity is low, then your pH is probably low as well and you must add buffer
  • You have to balance your alkalinity in order to stabilize pH
  • You want to have the alkalinity and pH in the appropriate range because if the water is too acidic (low), it is corrosive and will eat the metal fittings in the pool, causing metal deposits and damage to the heater 
  • If alkalinity is too high, you may have to add muriatic acid
  • Large amounts of rain will decrease alkalinity and pH
  • After you adjust your alkalinity and if pH still needs adjustment, you can add either Easy-Up or Easy-Down (0= strong acid, 7=neutral, 14=strong base)
  • If pH is too high, it will normally drop by itself and won’t allow chlorine to work at its most effective level
  • If pH is too low, eye irritation occurs, dissolved metals may leave stains, chlorine activity is slowed, water becomes cloudy, filter is overworked, etc.
  • pH affects every other chemical balance in the pool water

Calcium Hardness


Mursatt™ Mor-Cal

  • To increase calcium levels, you must use Mor-Cal
  • If the water is too low in calcium (soft water), it will leach it from vinyl parts of the pool, resulting in chafing
  • If the calcium is too high (hard water), it deposits the excess as scale – common in out-of-town water
  • For continuously high calcium, use a shield on a weekly basis to prevent scale and deposits
