Adequate Sanitization is Key to Water Manintenance in Pools, SWIM Spas and Hot Tubs

There are three important P’s when it comes to hot tub, swimming pool and SWIM spa care.  They are PREVENT disease, PROTECT equipment, and PROVIDE the expected experience.   Waters Choice wholeheartedly AGREES!

 

Adequate Sanitization is Key

 

In a recent article from one of our favorite magazines called AQUA the author talks about how maintaining adequate sanitation is a key element to proper pool and spa maintenance keeping bathers safe from disease and allowing for clean, clear water. Again, we agree.

 

However, the article continues to state that shocking the pool on a weekly basis, adding preventative algaecides, good physical maintenance and selecting specialty products round out the key components of a water program that maximizes the impact of the sanitizer and helps provide the expected experience.

 

Hold On! Wait just a minute ...

HOLD ON! Just Wait a Minute. We DISAGREE on that aspect.  Read on.

 

First and foremost, many of the typical chemicals used in pools and spas are harsh and cause skin and hair to dry out, eyes to burn, and the water will give off strong odors. 

 

As a matter of fact, when Waters Choice Pure Enzymes are added, most chemicals are eliminated and others are cut back most water care problems go away. Then, many positive things happen! For example, filters become easier to clean, tile lines and filters do not need to be cleaned as often; allowing you to save water and your water becomes softer. In addition to that, your hair will not turn green and your equipment will last longer. Yes!

Water Care Efficiency

 

Unfortunately, chlorine has become more and more difficult to obtain. So, water care efficiency has made its way to the forefront of pool and spa owners’ minds. Thankfully increasing awareness of the benefits of using Waters Choice Pool, Spa and SWIM Spa Enzymes has also come to the forefront. Our product makes it so owners and service professionals alike can use the least amount of sanitizer necessary to maintain clean and clear water.

 

Pool Water Balance is the Key

 

Keeping water balanced is one of the first things you can do to being more efficient. Test water frequently and balance immediately. Low pH (7.2) will cause your sanitizer to be used quickly.  High pH (above 7.8) is just the opposite. With that said, remember, our enzymes will raise the pH level of your water slightly and that’s ok.  What’s important is that you’re effectively killing bacteria or algae.

 

Algaecides are not necessary when using Waters Choice Pure Enzymes for Pools. Our enzymes enhance the efficiency of any water care program.  Afterall, enzymes break down non-living waste.  They also break down sunscreens, hair products, body oils, pollen and more. These are all considered non-living waste.

 

We like how the magazine author put it, enzymatic action in the pool (and spa) will help reduce the formation of scum lines that often form right at the waterline. Breaking down non-living contaminants before the filter means that filter run times decrease as well and you’ll find yourself cleaning the filter less and less.  In short, enzymes lead to superior water quality with less work.
