Water Maintenance

Giving Your Pool the Right Balance

Did you know that it’s important to have the right water balance in your swimming pool, spa or hot tub? If you’re looking to create the perfect conditions for bather comfort, chemical efficiency and equipment protection, then the water balance must be just right.

The main criteria affecting water balance are calcium hardness and pH (the level of acidity/total alkalinity), as well as treatments such as chlorine, which can also affect water balance. At Online Pool Chemicals, we have a range of products to ensure that your pool, hot tub or spa is a welcoming, attractive place that’s both safe and pleasant to be in.

Maintaining Your Swimming Pool Correctly

In your pool, you need to ensure that your water has the correct pH level of 7.2 to 7.6. If you need to get your wet area within the safe parameters, you’ll need to treat it with pH Plus or pH Minus, while packs of total alkalinity will ensure that the pH in the water won’t fluctuate wildly. Don’t forget, when you spend over £50 at Online Pool Chemicals you’ll enjoy FREE delivery to your home.

For further information about whether your pool or spa needs further chemical protection, check out our water balance guide on our Help and Advice page, or talk to a member of our team by emailing
