An inadequate pool water treatment can be detrimental not only to your health, but also to the pool and its equipment:
- An incorrectly adjusted pH will cause skin irritation and reduce the effectiveness of the disinfectant
- If disinfection is not carried out bacteria multiply, which are harmful to health and equipment
- Algae causes green discoloration of the water and damages the pool surface
- Calcium precipitations makes walls rough and impairs filtration
To get the most out of your pool and enjoy clean, healthy water all season long, you should follow a few simple rules when it comes to physical and chemical water treatment.
