We have many questions about balancing pool water. Each pool is a little bit different, but most pools will have few problems IF you keep the water balanced.
Use our Guide to Balanced Pool Water which you should print off and keep with your pool records. This is a general guide set up to make balancing your pool water a little more easy.
When balancing the pool chemistry, it is best to always go to the low end of the ideal settings. An example is if the range for Total Alkalinity is 100-125, then try for 100. In the case of the pool water chemistry, less is best.
