Pool Balancing Chemicals

POOL WATER BALANCING CHEMICALS

The first, most important step to pool care is to maintain proper pool water balance. To have a pool that is balanced means that the pH, Total Alkalinity and calcium hardness levels are in the ideal range according to the water test kit. Proper pool water balance will ensure that you are getting the most effective use of your sanitizing chemicals, preventing corrosion and scale conditions and providing water quality that is comfortable for swimmers. Test at least weekly to ensure that pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness and cyanuric acid (stabilizer) are within the correct levels.

pH INCREASER

Blue Wave pH IncreaserPool pH increaser, also called pH up is used to raise the pH level of the pool water to the ideal range of 7.2 to 7.6 ppm. Slows the rapid loss of chlorine caused by low pH, and slows chlorine dissipation, so your pool uses less chlorine. Stops eye irritation, etching and corrosion caused by low pH. Contains sodium carbonate “soda ash”.  Recommended dosage: 1 lb. per 10,000 gallons.

pH REDUCER

Blue Wave pH ReducerGRANULAR pH REDUCER IS THE SAFER ALTERNATIVE TO MURIATIC ACID!
Use pH reducer, also called pH down as needed to lower pH to ideal range of 7.2 to 7.6 ppm. Stops eye irritation, cloudy water, and scaling caused by high pH. Boosts chlorine’s ability to fight bacteria and algae. Contains granular sodium bisulfate. Recommended dosage: 6 oz. per 10,000 gallons.

TOTAL ALKALINITY INCREASER

Blue Wave Total Alkalinity IncreaserUse Alkalinity increaser as needed to raise the total alkalinity levels to the safe (non-corrosive) zone. When this level is too low, alkalinity increaser will stop eye irritation, equipment corrosion, and plaster etching caused by low alkalinity. When properly balanced, Total alkalinity Stabilizes the pH level in pool water and eliminates the demand for unusually large amounts of pH increaser adjustments. Properly balanced, total alkalinity increaser enables chlorine to work more effectively. Recommended Dosage: Use 1-1/2 lbs. of Alkalinity Increaser to raise the total alkalinity approximately 10 ppm per 10,000 Gallons.

CALCIUM HARDNESS INCREASER

Blue Wave Hardness IncreaserUse calcium hardness increaser as needed to raise the total hardness (calcium) level in your pool to the ideal range. Prevents low hardness pool water from becoming corrosive and damaging your swimming pool’s plumbing, heater and metal components. Stops staining and etching of pool surfaces caused by low hardness levels. Calcium Hardness increaser is great for use in areas where soft water is a problem. Recommended dosage: 5 lbs. per 10,000 gallons to raise the hardness approximately 40 ppm.

CHLORINE STABILIZER

Blue Wave Chlorine StabilizerCHLORINE STABILIZER CUTS POOL CHLORINE CONSUMPTION BY UP TO 25%!
Pool Chlorine Stabilizer pre-conditions your pool water to make chlorine last longer. Use chlorine stabilizer at the beginning of the season to protect chlorine from the sun’s damaging effects and increase your chlorine effectiveness. Cyanuric Acid. 
Dosage: 1-2/3 lbs. per 10,000 gallons.
