Pool Water & Swimming Pool Problems

The hot weather is here but is the pool water inviting? Are you enjoying as much time as you want in the pool? Chances are you’ve been spending a lot more time than you need to worry about those pool problems. You know the ones…

  • Maintaining a constant pH level of the water,
  • Those white patches and black spots on the walls and floor of the pool
  • That white film at the waterline pool tile, and
  • Getting the chemical mix just right so you can have a clear pool and not poison the family!

And that’s just for starters!

Whether you have a pool maintenance guy who takes care of your pool or you do it after talking to the person who sells you pool supplies I can guarantee you one thing – maintaining your swimming pool is not a simple job!

Calcium deposits on pool wall caused by pool water hardness

Maintaining the pool water chemistry with just the right combination of chemicals makes you feel like you need a science degree! But one thing that most people don’t understand is that not all water you put into your pool is the same – either from one town to the next or one month to the next. And that’s because water is not pure H2O, it is mixed with mineral salts from the ground that creates hardness in water.

So what does that mean to you?

If you live in a hard water area (and most everyone does) then you have calcium (and sometimes iron) in your water. This means you will experience scale build up, pool stains, rust scale, algae and cloudy pool water. And if you have those pool problems you will definitely be getting a scale build up in your pool’s pipes that will slowly restrict water flow to and from your pool’s heater and filter that require heavy duty servicing or replacement. Swimming pool problems can become very expensive.

The common solution to solving these problems is to get an assortment of chemicals and dose up the pool water. This takes a lot of money and time, and let’s face it swimming in a chemical soup is not safe for either you, your family or the environment in general.

What to do about your pool water hardness

The solution is actually quite simple. (And one the pool supplies store is not going to like at all cause it will mean you spend less with them.) It is always best to treat the cause of the problem rather than deal with all the resulting symptoms. You can change the pool water hardness into soft water when you install a ‘Aqua Conditioner’. Most people find they can reduce their chemical use dramatically.

And by the way, if you’re worried about how to remove scale from the pool you will find that all that existing scale build up will be gone in no time after your ‘Softer Water Conditioner’ is installed.

So if you want to spend more time in your clear pool rather than cleaning your pool then install a NLP Aqua Conditioner’. Your pool water will sparkle and you will reduce pool maintenance, extend the life of your paint work, pump, filter and salt water chlorinator, reduce your chemical costs and more importantly have more time to enjoy using the pool with family and friends!
