Basic Above Ground Swimming Pool Maintenance
To make sure your pool water is clean and clear we focus our topic in two main areas. The maintenance or restoring of your Chemistry Balance of your swimming pool water and the cleaning of dirt and particulate matter from your pool.
The balance of water chemistry in an above ground pool is attained by testing. The adding of chemicals alone will not keep your pool water balanced, you must test the pool and see which levels have to be adjusted and adding chemicals only as proscribed by the tests. For your pool to function at it’s best, this balance must be maintained.
Secondly to insure good pool water maintenance we must remove particulate matter and dirt. This is achieved by water circulation of the pool through a filtering system. Also brushing and vacuuming of the pool’s walls and sides will keep the pool from “growing” dirt or algae. With use of an automatic pool cleaner, this can be done at the same time as filtration. Cleaning the filter when needed will optimize this process.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and if you keep up with maintenance it will prevent the dreaded pool water problems that can occur when things get out of hand.’

Question From the Ask Bob Blog
The sun stole your chlorine. Back when I was a kid, I would occasionally buy goldfish. When ever I set up a new bowl, or cleaned the old bowl I would have to let the water sit for a day so the chlorine could escape from the water.
Chlorine is happiest in normal temperatures as a gas. To keep it in a liquid state we have to do funny things to it. If you simply put chlorine in a pool full of un-stabilized water it will happily find ways to escape into the atmosphere.

If pH is low add a pH Plus Product Like Pool Life Plus
If pH is High add a pH Minus Product Like Pool Life Minus
For Calcium Hardness
If Calcium is low add a water hardener agent
if Calcium is High add a sequestering agent
For Total Alkalinity
If Alkalinity is Too high, add an Alkalinity Decreaser
If Alkalinity is Too low, add an Alkalinity Increaser
