What Chemicals Do I Need for My Easy Set Pool?

Save

Easy Set pools are quickly becoming one of the most popular pools on the market. Consumers who seek ease of care and affordability choose Easy Set pools for their user-friendly design and low cost of maintenance. Maintaining your Easy Set pool with the proper chemicals will keep its water clear and ready for swimming

Chlorine Generator

  • Chlorine generators work by eliminating the need for additional chlorine. Chlorine generators are not an alternative to chlorine. They do, however, produce chlorine when used in conjunction with regular table salt. Chlorine generators are also an economical alternative to purchasing chlorine on a regular basis to keep your pool water clear and they require little maintenance.

Potassium Tetraborate

  • Algae spores enter pools through wind and rain, and can lead to growth on the bottom and sides of the pool as well as the swimming water. Potassium tetraborate, better known by most pool owners as algaecide, works by preventing algae from converting carbon dioxide into the fuel it needs for growth. Potassium tetraborate is recommended for use as a backup to provide additional sanitation and filtration for most pools, including Easy Set pools.

Pool Shock

  • Treating your pool to a dose of chemical shock is necessary to maintain the safety of the water that you swim in. Chemical shock helps to kill organic and inorganic products such as sweat, cosmetics and suntan oils that wash off the body while swimming, as well as contaminants brought in by the rain or wind and bird droppings. The use of chemical shock, whether it be in liquid, granular or tablet form, works by assisting typical pool chemicals such as chlorine and algaecides with the fighting of foreign materials and maintaining pool clarity and cleanliness. Shocking should be done at least once every two weeks whenever the pool is operational. It is important when shocking your pool that you use the full recommended treatment or dose. Failure to do so will not result in a strong enough dose to allow the chemicals to do their job and may allow the growth of unwanted bacteria or organisms.
