Looking for ways to preserve your chlorine supply this year? Goodall Pools & Spas can help. Here are 5 ways to use less chlorine in your pool. Pool stores everywhere are trying to help their customers to make the most use of the chlorine they do have available for the busy days of pool season.
Due to the unforeseen chlorine shortage across the nation in recent years, we have worked at finding creative ways to use less chlorine in general. Here is what you need to know about lessening your need for chlorine.
Clean Bodies Lessen Chlorine’s Workload
The first way to use less chlorine in your pool is to make sure that clean bodies are entering the pool. This will help to lessen the chlorine’s workload. In other words, the pool is not a replacement for the tub or shower.
Rinsing off before going for a swim is a great way to reduce the number of pollutants that enter the water. And in turn the chlorine will last longer to do its important work – sanitize the water.
Functioning Filters are a Friend of Chlorine’s
Another great way to use less chlorine in your pool is to keep the filter clear and active. The filter does the heavy cleaning of the water. So when the filter is active, the chlorine can also extend its usefulness.
Be sure to do regular checks of the filter to take out any large debris that gets caught and to ensure that all is functioning as it should be. And let the pump run a sufficient amount of hours daily in order to do a complete turnover of the water – moving it all through the filter.
Rely on Secondary Products
There are a variety of water clarifiers and other products on the market that help to remove contaminants in your water that chlorine would typically have to handle.
Enzyme based water clarifiers are great at removing sweat, sunscreen, hygiene products, pollen, and more from your water. Oxidizing shock is another great way to make the existing chlorine in your water more effective and stretch its lifespan.
Consistent Water Tests are Crucial for Chlorine Monitoring
Another tip for chlorine reduction is this: do consistent water tests. Balanced water chemistry is crucial for many reasons. In order to monitor the amount of chlorine that is in the water, you need to regularly check the chemical levels. Chlorine is necessary for clean, clear water. And with consistent tests, you can be conscientious about only adding chlorine when it is actually needed.
