HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Sept. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- All pool owners know about the concoction of chemicals they need to put in their pool to maintain its color and sparkle throughout the season, but many people are uninformed about what they're swimming in most of the time. People often complain of a strong smell of chlorine and green streaks through light hair without truly understanding where those effects are coming from. While it may sound daunting to be swimming in a pool filled with chemicals, it's even worse to be swimming in a pool filled with bacteria and microbes. Removable pool fence company, LOOP-LOC, knows all about the importance of using proper pool chemicals to keep swimmers safe and healthy. Learn more about them below.
First of all, what are pool chemicals? Well, they're a lot of different things. There's the classic chlorine compound that many pool owners use, or bromine compounds as an alternative to chlorine. This chlorine, when added to the pool water, produces the actual disinfecting agent hypochlorous acid, commonly known as free chlorine.
Chlorine isn't the only pool chemical either; cyanuric acid is often added to pools in order to stabilize the water, preventing the hypochlorous acid from degrading in the sun. Other chemicals may include algaecide or a compound to adjust the pool's pH, including chemicals like hydrochloric acid, sodium bisulfate, carbon dioxide, and sodium carbonate. These chemicals all do something different for the water to maintain its disinfecting properties and create an ideal swimming environment.
Even though these chemicals sound dangerous or complicated, what they do for the water you swim in is immeasurable. Making sure a pool is free of microbes and bacteria, as well as algae and debris, is key to ensuring healthy and safe water for swimmers. Pool water can harbor dangerous pathogens able to move freely from one body to another, but using pool chemicals prevents these diseases from spreading by killing off the bacteria in the water. Using chemicals to properly balance the pH of pool water also prevents erosion of pool parts, maintaining the safest swimming environment possible for family and friends.
Learning about pool chemicals is what makes them a little less intimidating to handle or go swimming in. Knowing that swimmers are in healthy, clean water eases the mind of a pool owner, so trust that you're in safe hands when you jump into a sparkling blue pool.
