Pool Care and Cleaning

Can you use the same water-treatment chemicals in vinyl-lined and cement-lined pools?

Vinyl lined pools require less chemical treatment to use since it is not a porous material unlike cement lined ones require more chemical treatment (more porous material). Cement lined ones form more algae than vinyl.

Hey, In most pools it is chlorine, but newer pools have been known to be use different chemicals.

It depends on the size of the pool.

clorine and depending on certain pools salt water.

That would depend on how much chemicals you have in your pool.

Hydrochloric acid and potasium help alot

no. there are "natural pools". but if you want the classic clean blue pool, you have to.

Yes; they require virtually no cleaning chemicals and are easy to keep clean if properly cared for before and after use.

Yes you have to be a little more careful that you don't expose the vinyl to strong concentrations of chemicals as this may cause discolouration.

Exchange pools are biotic factors that hold chemicals for a short period of time. However, reservoir holds chemicals for a longer period of time.

No, Oxi Clean is not intended for use in pools. You should go to a pool supply store to learn what chemicals to use and the correct amounts for the kind and size pool you have.

Levy Pools is a popular contractor in the Halifax area. They specialize in both above and in ground pools as well as hot tubs. They will also do pool fills as well. Another would be Sparkling Pools & Spa's. They too specialize in both types of pools as well as accessories and pool chemicals.

Spadedepot.com has a lot of information about shopping for and maintaining above ground pools. They also have a manual on the website about how to properly balance the chemicals in the water, and what chemicals to use.

Most states require a CPO for public and commercial pools, but not for pools for personal use (such as a home pool). Check with your state licensing office for further information.

You can visit CC Pools and Spas in Atlanta Georgia for replacement pool chemicals. You can also check out your local walmart or home depot.

That is not a good idea, swimming pools have chemicals in them to keep them clean and they would not be good for a dog.

To what chemicals are you referring? Some last months, some last weeks, some last days, some last hours or minutes. I don't have the room to list all the chemicals and their longevity that are used in swimming pools in this article. k

Chemicals like Bromine and Chlorine are often used to help keep pools and spas sanitized and clean. These can be found at local pool and spa stores and also supercenters.

all of the chemicals that are in the pool cause a certain odor which (i guess) can be called stinky feet. one of the chemicals they put in there is chlorine which has a very strong scent. Very poor water chemistry or chemical balance. Neglect ! However even carefully kept pools may have an awful odor! Why?

Water is sterilized as it passes through an ultraviolet light source so few chemicals are needed specifically chlorine.

If the Ph of the pool water is not at an optimum level (7.2 ) then this inhibits the action of other chemicals such as chlorine.

It's used in fumigants, water treatment for swimming pools and hot tubs, and as an intermediate in organic chemicals, etc.

This depends on what the pool supply company is working on. Some chemicals can include chlorine, or even simple rock salt for salt water pools. They have to balance the pH of each pool.

== == SALT WATER POOLS ARE CHLORINATED POOLS. The difference is that the chlorine is added or manufactured automatically -- you do not have to physically add chlorine by hand daily or weekly. You also get a more even distribution of that chemical being added. However, you do have to monitor and maintain your equipment and test the chemicals periodically -- at minimum - weekly because of other chemical factors in water balance. k== == Salt water pools are also chlorinated pools. The chlorinator converts the salt into chlorine and keeps the levels at a constant. The benefit is that you don't have to keep adding chemicals like a traditional pool. We installed a salt pool four months ago and love it. Once you get the levels of salt right it is virtually maintenance free.

Recommended pH for pools is 7.2 - 7.8. It is fairly easy to stay in that range with weekly testing and adjusting of chemicals.
