You just got yourself a new pool or swim spa installed and you just can’t wait to jump in and enjoy. Swimming and relaxing in the water is a lot of fun, but you may not look forward to all the work it takes to maintain chlorine levels or having to check the pH levels. However, if your not keeping up with maintenance, your pool may have some terrible surprises for you.
It is crucial that you maintain the chlorine levels in your pool or swim spa. Otherwise, a little dip in the pool could make you sick. In order to kill bacteria and parasites, chlorine levels must be high enough to do so. Otherwise, your pool will end up making you very ill as a result. However, too much chlorine can also have terrible side effects on your health including rashes, vomiting, and breathing problems.
Though pH levels are effected by chlorine, it is more about balancing the chemicals of the water itself. This can include the amount of alkaline, calcium, and minerals are in your pool’s water. Having these levels unbalanced could prevent the chlorine’s ability to work and can end up damaging your pool or swim spa.
Keeping Out Bugs
Lastly, there are bugs to look out for. Tons of creepy crawlies find themselves attracted to the water source and drown in the pool. Even worse, insects like mosquitoes may try to use it as a breeding ground. Gross!
