What chemicals do you use to open an above-ground pool?
I currently have an above ground pool 15' wide 4' deep and i use a chlorine bouy which i take out when not in use.
Yes,but only if your pool is resin[that is constructed from 100% polymer or plastic]. It is not advisable to use salt in a "steel pool". Salt in a steel pool is a lousy salesman answer. All Chlorine is made from Salt and the amount needed in your pool is insignificant to what kind of pool you have. Any pool can be salt
== Cleaning a pool without chemicals== Actually, scientist have discovered that hen you use a special filtration system with a low percentage salty wtaer, you'll have to clean less our pool, with less chemicals, to have a better water quality. == Cleaning a pool without chemicals== Actually, scientist have discovered that hen you use a special filtration system with a low percentage salty wtaer, you'll have to clean less our pool, with less chemicals, to…
I have heard that you can use muriatic acid and bleach in your swimming pools and you dont have to use any other chemicals is this true and if so how is it done?
Yes and no. There are other chemicals involved. You need to get a pool chemistry booklet or a swimming pool book soon before the pool gets ahead of you. You may be in over your head until you get someone to show you how to maintain a pool because it is not only the chemistry but the equipment maintenance also. Ken
First off use the chemicals recommended by a pool supply shop to clear the water and get rid of algae, etc. If you mean the bottom of the pool use a pool vacuum. If you mean 'ring around the pool' on a plastic liner use those, fairly new on the market, Cleaning Erasers, plain, without any detergent or soap.
Filters and chemicals work differently. You'll need both. The filter removes particulate from the water, which makes it clear (which makes you happy). The chemicals act by reducing the amount of microorganisms growing in the water. The chemicals work first and the filter sweeps up after them. For a private pool you can use less of the chemicals than are usually used in public pools.
Algecide Gel You'll have to empty the pool. Scrub and clean the pool and make sure the sand filter is up to par. Then, refill the pool and use the proper chemicals. In my subdivision, an inexperienced pool guy managed the chemicals badly during hot weather. Make sure you are using the proper methods and you won't get black algae again. Be careful about emptying the pool. Floating a fiberglass pool is a common issue…
It is not sensible to mix bleach and chlorine, or any other cleaners, especially as the question appears to be about a swimming pool? It has been known that, potentially, the gas given off, when chemicals are haphazardly mixed can cause death! Always read the labels and use household cleaners and swimming pool chemicals - carefully.
Not necessarily. It is cloudy because you have not cleaned the filter, added the proper amounts of chemicals, filtered long enough, added too much algaecide or other chemicals, over use - too many people in the pool, not rinsing yourself off before entering the pool -- all of the above and more..... k
Chemicals should be added late at night so that the filtration system can cycle all the water. Chlorine tablets can be placed in a blue and white buoy and be released while the pool is in use. Acid should never be added while people are in the pool. Be sure to check your PH levels the next morning before letting people swim.
