Salt for your Pool

Using salt to create chlorine is the job of the Salt Chlorine Generator.  There is no such thing as a salt pool.  The table salt used is turned into chlorine, chlorine is still the best sanitizer you can use for a swimming pool.

Salt chlorine makes your pool water feel soft but the chlorine it creates sometimes needs the addition of regular chlorine to get the balance right.  And not all the salt is turned into chlorine and can cause corrosion.  And remember, if you can smell chlorine, especially in an outdoor pool, you are not practicing proper water chemistry.

With every salt chlorine generator I add to one of our pools i include a Zinc Sacrificial Anode to prevent metal erosion, heater damage and cement corrosion.  Now you can enjoy your salt chlorine pool and not worry about corrosion.


Automatic pool cleaners

I am often asked if I have a recommendation as to brand or model of automatic pool cleaners.   Not really, but what you need to look for is a model that actually climbs the walls and does the steps.

If the brand claims to be ideal for fiberglass pools, call the company and ask what it is that the machine does that makes it ideal for fiberglass.

Foam in Your Spa?

There are several reasons for foamy spa water.  The main one is the introduction of body oils,shampoos and conditioners,lotions and soaps by bathers.  A quick shower and good rinse can fix this.

Poor water balance which causes low calcium hardness levels can promote foaming.  Make sure to adjust calcium hardness to the proper range.  Learning good water chemistry can insure more fun in your hot tub and your swimming pool.

Household cleaners will cause foamy water.  Household cleaners should never be used in your hot tub even when it is empty) as they are very difficult to rinse away.

Draining the tub and using fresh water and then balancing the water properly should be a good start to enjoying your tubbing.
