That is exactly what makes mineral-based water sanitization systems, such as Nature2®, an exciting development in pool care. Mineral-based sanitizers, like Nature2, clean the pool's water by adding minerals, such as silver and copper, while reducing the level of chlorine needed in the pool. These systems use a mineral cartridge to [...]

Why Shock My Pool?

By |2019-11-26T04:59:24-05:00March 3rd, 2019|Chemical Treatments|

Most of the time your pool needs to be shocked due to CHLORAMINES which is Combined Chlorine <CAC> - it is hypochlorous acid combined with nitrogen compounds such as ammonia in a very strong bond. Chloramines are formed many ways but the most unwanted is when chlorine in your pool tries to destroy "PHOSPHATES" that are in your pool water, the more of one bad thing you have the more the other you get. With [...]

Salt systems are so much better than Chlorine right?

By |2019-11-26T05:17:34-05:00March 3rd, 2019|Chemical Treatments|

Chlorine in its various forms is the most commonly used pool disinfectant. In addition to killing bacteria, chlorine helps to kill algae and destroy waste material not removed by the filter system. In its natural or elemental state, chlorine is a gas. But chlorine gas is very toxic and hard to handle safely. This is why chlorine is combined with other compounds to form several liquids and solids which are effective to sanitize and safer [...]

Ozone Generators Ozone technology for swimming pools has been in regular use for over 50 years in places like France, Germany and other European nations as they realize the consequences of chlorine gas. Ozone has also been in use in Europe since the 1890’s for drinking water purification. Some large cities in the United States such as Los Angeles and Milwaukee now boast the best drinking water in America since they began using Ozone as [...]

Pool Pump System

By |2019-12-16T08:24:43-05:00November 2nd, 2018|Pool Equipment|

This is a typical pool pump. Note the parts of the pump. On the front of the pump you have a pump trap which has a basket that traps small debris and keeps it from clogging the pump. The pump body is where a "fanblade-like" impeller sucks in the water and forces it out the top of the pump. The pump motor is what drives the pump. The motor is air cooled while the pump [...]

Swimming Pool Heaters

By |2019-12-16T08:25:06-05:00October 12th, 2018|Pool Equipment|

Hot water from thin air A heatpump takes the heat from the surrounding air and uses it to heat the water in your pool. During heat pump operation, liquid freon from inside the unit is pumped through the system (A) and is turned into a heated gas. This happens when heat is taken from the surrounding air (B) as it is drawn through the evaporator by the fan. The compressor (C) receives this warmer gas [...]

What is PH

By |2019-11-29T02:57:42-05:00September 29th, 2018|Chemical Treatments|

PH is a very significant factor and exerts the most influence on the scale formation or corrosives of your sanitizer (chlorine/bromine). The Ph of your pool water will determine the efficiency of the sanitizer. We define Ph not as the measurement of the total amount of acid or base in a pool, but as a measurement of the "activity" of the acid or alkali present. Acids are chemicals that form Hydrogen Ions( H+) when dissolved [...]
