It would be nice if every pool water problem could be prevented. But even the most diligent adherence to routine maintenance programs can’t eliminate every algae bloom, stain or odor. So we have products and procedures to kill algae, clear water and help keep water chemistry balanced. In-store testing stations, poolside trouble shooting methods and problem-solving products all play important roles in ongoing battle against water menaces.
Before any problem can be treated, the water chemistry must be checked. It is, therefore, imperative that the testing of the water is placed in the hands of an experienced person who could diagnose, solve and hopefully prevent pool water problems.
We have prepared a guide to 8 of the most common obstacles to pool-owner happiness.
