Step by step
BACK TO CLEAR POOL WATER
Clean the pool
Manually brush off dirt deposits from the floor, walls and the skimmer and completely remove them with the help of a mechanical or electric pool cleaner, as well as by filtration.
Clean and disinfect the sand filter
Check the pH value
The ideal pH value of pool water is between 7,0 - 7,4. A too high or too low pH value can cause skin irritations and stingy eyes, and water care products are not fully efficient.
Check the pH value with Quicktest pH/Cl/TA test strips or the electronic pool tester, and if necessary adjust to the ideal value with pH-Plus or pH-Minus.
Product recommendation > Quicktest, pH-Minus, pH-Plus
Flocculation and turbidity removal
Place a Superflock Plus flocculation cartridge in the skimmer and let the circulation pump run for 24 hours. Superflock Plus removes finest particles and ensures crystal clear water (only applicable in filters with sand or filter glass)
For cartridge filters, apply Superklar, a liquid clarifiyer.
Product recommendation > Superflock Plus, Superklar
Enjoy your pool !
