Every pool needs some sort of pool chemical to be balanced and to create ideal swimming conditions. From traditional pools, salt water pools, magnesium mineral pools, and even “Naked” pool systems, they all need some degree of pool chemical application for them to become balanced and safe for use.
Here are some of the most commonly used pool chemicals for home pools in Australia:
Chlorine - Used as a sanitiser. Chlorine keeps your water clear of any contaminant that may be harmful to swimmer health
Stabiliser - Also known as UV blockout, sunscreen, and cyanuric acid. This prevents your chlorine from being burned out by the sun and allows it to effectively sanitise your pool.
Buffer - Also known as Alkalinity up or Sodium Bicarbonate. This prevents your pool’s pH levels from fluctuating and in turn allows all the other chemicals to function at optimal levels.
Hardness Raiser - Also known as Calcium up or Calcium Chloride. This increases the calcium levels in your water so that it won’t “eat” the calcium from your pool surfaces.
Clarifiers and Flocculants - These bind to microscopic particles that your pool filter can’t catch that cause your pool water to become cloudy. By binding with them, it will allow you to flush or filter out those contaminants so that you’ll have crystal clear water.
Shock Treatments - These are used to raise your chlorine levels to “shock” your pool for situations that call for drastic chlorine applications.
Stain Removers - These are specially formulated chemicals to make stain removal quick and painless and to protect your surface from damaged caused by heavy scrubbing.
