Safety and Children
Always keep chemicals out of the reach of children.
Our products come with tamper proof caps and lids however it is imperative that you keep all chemicals away from children.
By law you must have a pool fence with a safety gate latch (available from Pool Pro Logan) to protect children from entering the pool area unsupervised.
Contact your local council or ask us for pool fence regulations.
What is pH?
pH is a scale of 1-14 which measures the pH of your water.
The germ killing power of chlorine varies along with pH levels. As the pH goes up the ability of chlorine to kill germs goes down. Also, a swimmer’s body has a pH of between 7.2 and 7.8 so if the pool water isn’t kept in this range swimmers will start to feel irritation of their eyes and skin. The level that needs to be maintained is dependent on the interior surface of your pool. We can test it for you in store FREE.
What is Total Alkalinity?
This is a measure of the total alkalinity (TA) or how many alkaline substances there are in the water.
In swimming pool water, Total Alkalinity, should be between 80 ppm (parts per million) and 120 ppm depending on the interior of your pool. Total Alkalinity is closely related to pH. When the total alkalinity (TA) is within this range, it prevents rapid pH changes and "stabilises" the pH level.
If the TA is too low,marble sheen and plaster walls will become etched, metals corrode, the pool's walls and floor can stain, the water can turn green, eyes burn and we can have pH bounce (pH rapidly going up and down, seemingly at random). If the TA is too high, the pH is difficult to adjust, the water becomes cloudy, the pool constantly needs acid and the chlorine loses its efficiency as a disinfectant.
