What are the benefits a Salt Pool?
Saltwater pools and chlorine pools are two distinct types of swimming pools that sanitize their water in different ways.
Traditional chlorine pools use chlorine tablets or liquid to sanitize the water, which can result in a strong chlorine odor and irritate the eyes, skin, and hair. In addition, the chlorine levels in the pool must be routinely monitored and adjusted to maintain the proper balance.
In contrast, saltwater pools use an electrolysis process to convert salt into chlorine. This is accomplished by passing the saltwater through a salt cell, which employs an electrical current to convert the salt into chlorine. This type of pool requires less chlorine to maintain a proper chemical balance, resulting in less chlorine odor and irritation to the eyes, skin, and hair.
Among the advantages of a saltwater pool over a chlorine pool are:
Less chlorine smell
Reduced irritant effects on the eyes, skin, and hair
Reduce chlorine content
a water with a more natural feel
Notably, a saltwater pool still requires maintenance, and the salt cell must be replaced periodically. In addition, the salt levels in the pool must be monitored and adjusted as necessary.
Why do I have a calcium line in my pool?
As a pool service company, we recognize that calcium lines can be a frustrating issue for pool owners. We wish to reassure you that this is a common problem that can be easily remedied by taking the appropriate measures.
A calcium line in a pool is the result of high calcium concentrations in the water. This can be caused by hard water, high pH levels, or high levels of total dissolved solids (TDS) in the pool water, among others.
To address this issue, we suggest the following measures:
We will regularly test your pool water and adjust the pH levels as necessary to prevent further accumulation.
Total dissolved solids (TDS) levels will be lowered by draining the pool and refilling it with fresh water.
Using the Langlier Saturation Index (LSI): The LSI is a method for measuring the relative calcium carbonate saturation of water. By monitoring the LSI, we can prevent the formation of a calcium line by maintaining the water within the appropriate range to prevent calcium precipitation.
Using a calcium sequestrant, this chemical will be added to your pool water to prevent calcium from forming deposits.
Scrubbing the deposit: We will use a brush with stiff bristles to scrub and remove the deposit.
Following the manufacturer's instructions to the letter, we will use this chemical to dissolve the calcium deposit.
It is essential to remember that preventing a problem is always preferable to attempting to fix it. As part of our services, we will test and balance the water chemistry of the pool, as well as ensure proper filtration and circulation, in order to prevent the future formation of a calcium line. By monitoring the LSI, we can ensure that your pool water has the proper level of saturation to prevent calcium accumulation.
Our team is committed to providing the best service and maintaining the highest level of customer service. You can rely on us to maintain your swimming pool in pristine condition.
In certain instances, a tile cleaning may be required if the calcium line is too severe to correct.
What can I do between Service visits to keep my pool looking clean?
Here are a few things you can do between pool maintenance visits to keep your pool clean:
Use a pool skimmer to remove floating debris from the water's surface, such as leaves, insects, and other debris.
Use a pool brush to remove algae and other deposits from the pool's walls and floor.
Using a pool vacuum, remove dirt and debris from the bottom of the pool.
If you do not own a Vacuum Robot, you are missing out! 10 out of 10 customers find that having one makes their pool cleaner.
Determine the water level: Ensure that your pool's water level is sufficient.
After a heavy rain or windstorm, you should examine your pool for debris and remove it as necessary.
Check your skimmer and pump baskets immediately!
By following these steps, you can keep your pool clean and clear in between service visits. It is essential to keep in mind, however, that regular professional pool service is necessary to ensure that your pool is properly maintained and to prevent problems from arising. If your filter requires cleaning, please contact a pool service professional if you require assistance.
