FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What are phosphates and how do they get into my pool?

Phosphates can increase the likelihood growth of algae in swimming pool water and can enter the water from such sources as:  decaying plant matter, fertilizers, mineral treatment chemicals (metal remover), contaminated well water, acid rain, contamination with soil, ground water runoff, bird droppings, bather wastes, urine and sweat.  Phosphate is a vital plant nutrient and the presence in swimming pool water can cause accelerated algae growth in poorly maintained pools. Higher levels of phosphates can make algae control more difficult and increase the amount of sanitizer required to maintain satisfactory control of algae.

My pool has a very strong chlorine smell, do I have to much chlorine?

No you don't have enough "free" chlorine in your pool.  All pools contain "free" or "good" chlorine and also "combined" or "bad" chlorine.  The free chlorine is the chlorine that is available to kill germs and other organic material in your pool water.  The difference in the "total" chlorine and "free" chlorine is the "combined" chlorine, or the chlorine that is used up already and can not fight germs. When combined chlorine reachs a level of 0.5 or greater, it is time to shock your pool. 

Why a Salt Chlorine generator?

Salt is a very economical commodity. When the ions in salt are passed over specially coated blades and induced with a low voltage electrical charge it is converted into chlorine. When this process is incorporated into your swimming pool you have your very own "chlorine generator"
