Homeowners know how precious it is to have the time to relax. Especially when it’s the middle of summer, many would rather lounge in a pool. But not everyone can visit the local swimming hole, which makes above ground swimming pools a popular choice.
For those who plan to, or already, own an above ground pool, it is important to know how to keep it clean. After all, if you intend to spend a lot of time in your pool, won’t you like it to have clean water?
Sanitizing your above ground pool is usually done through the use of antibacterial chemicals. These can be done through chlorine, baquacil, or other methods such as salt water generators. Whichever method is used, healthy levels must be maintained to ensure continued sanitization.
The most common method though, is through chlorination. Chlorine levels for proper sanitation is usually kept from 1.0 – 3.0 ppm. Chlorine can be added via tablets, sticks, granules, and floaters.
Using floats, these are used via the filtering system or you can add it directly as well. No matter what method you use, how you use it, the important thing is to keep the proper levels to make sure the pool stays clean and clear.
