Water balance – Pool

Saniklar – Water balance products for pools

The most important part in connection with a pool is that the balance of the water is correctly adjusted. The pH value must be between approx. 7.0 and 7.4, so that other products – including chlorine – have the most effective effect in connection with the disinfection of the water.

Outside factors can play a role in balancing the pool water. Frequent use of the pool by several guests, rainwater and shock chlorination of the water can change the pH value. Therefore, test the pH value of your pool water at regular intervals and adjust if necessary. with pH-minus or pH-plus according to the regulations on the packaging.

  1. Saniklar pH minus - 7,5 kg
    • Brand: Saniklar
    • Weight, Product (kg): 7,5 kg
    • Applications: Swimming Pool

    Saniklar pH-Minus is used to lower the water's pH level.

    Perfect pool water requires a pH level between 7.0-7.4. A pH level that is too low can make the water aggressive towards the pool's metal components, while a pH level that is too high can lead to calcium deposits and cloudy, milky water. Within the pH range of 7.0-7.4, the water is slightly basic, allowing for the optimal effectiveness of chlorine addition.

  2. Saniklar pH minus - 3 kg
    • Brand: Saniklar
    • Weight, Product (kg): 3 kg
    • Applications: Swimming Pool

    Saniklar pH-Minus is used to lower the water's pH level.

    Perfect pool water requires a pH level between 7.0-7.4. A pH level that is too low can make the water aggressive towards the pool's metal components, while a pH level that is too high can lead to calcium deposits and cloudy, milky water.

  3. Saniklar pH Plus
    • Brand: Saniklar
    • Weight, Product (kg): 5 kg
    • Applications: Swimming Pool

    Saniklar pH-Plus is used to raise the water's pH level.

    Ideal pool water requires a pH level between 7.0-7.4. A pH that is too low can make the water corrosive to the pool's metal components, while a pH that is too high can lead to calcium deposits and make the water cloudy and milky. Within the pH range of 7.0-7.4, the water is slightly basic, allowing for the optimal effectiveness of chlorine addition.

  4. Saniklar Alka Plus
    • Brand: Saniklar
    • Weight, Product (kg): 5 kg
    • Applications: Swimming Pool

    Saniklar Alka Plus increases the alkalinity in your pool water and assists in maintaining the balance of your pool water.

    It is essential to measure and, if necessary, adjust the alkalinity during water replacement or if issues arise in maintaining a stable pH level between 7.0-7.4, especially after heavy rainfall. The alkalinity should be within the range of 80-120 mg/l.

    You can measure alkalinity using test strips or a SmartTest.

Water Balance & pH Level in Pool

The pH level and water balance are crucial factors for maintaining a healthy and safe pool. Here is an in-depth explanation of both:

pH Level

  • Definition: The pH level measures the acidity or alkalinity of the pool water on a scale from 0 to 14. A pH level of 7 is neutral, values below 7 are acidic, and values above 7 are basic (alkaline).
  • Ideal Value: For pool water, a pH level between 7.0 and 7.4 is recommended. A value within this range is ideal for swimmer comfort, the effectiveness of chlorine as a disinfectant, and to prevent corrosion or buildup of scale on the pool's surfaces and equipment.
  • Adjustment: The pH level can be adjusted by adding acid (pH minus - to lower pH) or base (pH plus - to raise pH). Typical products include muriatic acid or sulfuric acid to lower pH, and sodium carbonate to raise pH.

Water Balance

  • Water balance refers to the correct balance between different chemical components in the pool water, which includes pH, total alkalinity (TA), calcium hardness (CH), and disinfectant levels. A correct water balance is important for:
    • Swimmer Comfort: Prevents irritation of eyes and skin.
    • Water Clarity: Ensures the water is clear and free from turbidity or algae growth.
    • Protection of the Pool: Prevents corrosion or damage to the pool's surfaces and equipment.
  • Total Alkalinity (TA): Acts as a buffer for the pH level and should be between 80 and 120 ppm (parts per million). If TA is too high or too low, it can make it difficult to maintain a stable pH level.
  • Calcium Hardness (CH): Measures the amount of dissolved calcium in the water and should be between 200 and 400 ppm to prevent lime precipitation or corrosion.
  • Disinfectants: Chlorine or bromine are most commonly used to keep the water free from bacteria and algae. The level of free available chlorine should be between 1 and 3 ppm, while the bromine level should be between 3 and 5 ppm.

Maintaining a correct water balance requires regular testing and adjustment of the chemicals in the pool water. This can be done using test kits or digital testers, which provide an accurate measurement of the pool water's chemical levels.

By keeping these levels within the recommended ranges, not only is a healthy and safe environment for swimmers ensured, but the lifespan of the pool's surfaces and equipment is also extended.
