With good weather, and with rising temperatures comes time again to enjoy our pool; But it’s no easy task to get hold pool look great and stand the test of time. Therefore, we follow a practical and useful steps to make it, is in the best conditions for eg we can not put red eyes.
Before beginning any treatment in our pool, we know their capacity. Thus, we can calculate the exact dose of chemicals to be added to water.
1 ppm = 1 mg / l = 1 g / m3
To calculate the volume can we proceed to consider how having our pool. Although the most common are rectangular there are also oval and round for this show then how to calculate the volume by shape:
Rectangular or square pool
Length (m) x Width (m) x Average Depth (m) = Volume (m3)
Length (m) x Width (m) x Average Depth (m) x 0.89 = Volume (m3)
Length (m) x Width (m) x Average Depth (m) x 0.78 = Volume (m3)
The air, swimmers and dirt to enter the water environment causing turbidity and becomes the feed of bacteria and algae. Therefore, it is necessary to remove them with the help of filtration equipment. The filter traps dirt particles while maintaining the clear, sparkling water. It is important that the filter works in good condition and that the entire volume of water to be filtered at least once daily.
The water, although it is clear and transparent, these microorganisms have to be eliminated through proper disinfection. One of the chlorine consumed is added to destroy contaminants. The rest remains as residual chlorine, prepared to act against those new contaminants entering through the wind, swimmers, etc .A this disinfectant residual is called Residual Chlorine Free. To ensure good disinfecting pool water level must be maintained Free Residual Chlorine 0.5 to 2 ppm. Chlorine consumption varies with temperature, solar incidence, the number of bathers and pollution .For is therefore necessary to analyze the chlorine level daily with the help of a case of chlorine and pH analyzer.
The pH indicates the acidity or alkalinity of water. In a pool must be kept adjusted between 7,2 and 7,4. This pH range, in addition to preserving the facility in top condition, is ideal for the skin and eyes of the bather. To keep analyzes between these two values daily pH with a case of chlorine and pH analyzer. If the pH is higher than 7.4 MINORADOR added to water pH. If the pH is less than 7.2 added to water pH increaser.
Algae are single-celled plant organisms that can grow and multiply rapidly in water, especially when the temperature is warm .The algae spores are introduced into the pool water through wind, rain, etc. To prevent its development, in addition to disinfecting an algae product should be used.
To have a clear and disinfected water, we recommend the following treatment:
Perform a shock chlorination with 15 g dichloromethane GRANULADO or with 1 or 2 CHLORINE TABLETS FAST dosing the product through the skimmers. Chlorination has to supplement this with the addition of a product such as algae algae EXTRA CONCENTRATED or algae, at 1 liter per 100 m3 of water.
The addition of chlorine to the pool water is done with the product trichlor (1 Compact for every 20 m3 of water per week) compact .The periodically placed in a dispenser or skimmers. About once a week, you should test the level of compact and replace them if necessary. This treatment gives you great independence and ensures a residual chlorine 24 hours a day .The disinfectant action of chlorine must be supplemented once a week with the addition of an anti-algae product, such as algae or EXTRA CONCENTRATED algae, dosing the product directly to water at a rate of ¼ liter per 100 m3 of water.
It may be that although we have followed the “verbatim” the above recommendations and still got problems with cloudy water, algae, colored water … In these situations we will begin to appear to follow certain steps to correct the problem appeared as will see in the article how to troubleshoot the pool water .
