Start Your Pool Season Healthy & Balanced
By Kelly Jackson

Save Money & Save Your Warranties


For over 20 years we’ve been hearing most Roswell pool owners say, “I start the pool season by SHOCKING the pool to get rid of the algae and cloudiness. THEN I bring the water in for water testing.”

At the beginning of pool season, bring your water here FIRST! Why?

#1 Water Testing Saves Money: The MOST IMPORTANT REASON for balancing water is to make your chlorine work most effectively. If the pH level is even slightly off, chlorine can lose 50% to 80% of its ability to kill off contaminates that are harmful to you and make your pool water look ugly. So, if you are shocking your pool water at the start of pool season, you are probably spending more time and money than you need to get the job done.

#2 Water Testing Saves Equipment: Every piece of pool equipment and your pool’s surface has a valid warranty ONLY if you maintain balanced pool water according to industry standards, and you must keep records for proof.

Balancing your pool water at the start of the pool season makes it more ‘gentle.’ Our ‘Tap’ water here has a small amount of minerals and rainwater has No minerals in it. That’s the problem. Water is hungry for minerals. Water that isn’t balanced will naturally erode the metals, for example, inside your pump, filter, heater, salt cell, pool cleaner and every square inch of your pool’s surface or liner. Water will break down and destroy everything it touches UNLESS you get it properly BALANCED through water testing at the start of the pool season. This makes it healthier for you and Protects Your Warranties.

We are Educated in the Science of Healthy Water. We’ll test your water, give you a proper analysis and even keep your water testing records. Just bring in a water sample for FREE water testing.

Our Purpose at Pool Supply is the Protection of your Family and your Investment using water testing to balance your pool water. It’s pool season, and we are ready to help Roswell pool owners.

Pool Care During Winter
By
Proper pool care during the winter is essential to reduce cost of chemicals and labor when it is time to open up back in the spring. Even if the pool is not covered during the cold season, proper chemical balance and clearing of debris is needing to prevent staining and other problems. For an in-depth analysis of how to keep your swimming pool well maintained during the winter months, free and comprehensive computerized water sampling is offered in store at 2300 Holcomb Bridge Rd, Roswell GA, 30076.
 

Chlorine

Less chlorine is required to keep pool water clean during the winter months due to the temperature of the water being lower. Chlorine tablets will dissolve more slowly than during the warm season, but it is advised to make sure the pool is within a 1ppm - 6ppm free chlorine range during the winter months to keep the water free from organic material and bacteria. This will also highly lessen the risk of having an algae bloom as the temperatures start to rise in the spring.
 

pH

Maintain a pH level in the range of 7.2 - 7.8. High pH promotes scaling on the surface, while a low pH promotes corrosion of the surface.
 

Alkalinity

Maintain a normalized level of 80ppm-120ppm to correctly buffer the pH (keep it from fluctuating).
 

Calcium Hardness

Maintain a normalized level of 200ppm - 400ppm to ensure long life of pool surface finish. When Hardness level is too low, the water will etch and corrode the pool surface finish to equalize its calcium need. 
 

Stabalizer

Since the UV from the winter sun is not as strong as the summer sun, it is acceptable to run the pool with low levels of stabalizer. It is recommended, though, to still maintain at least 30ppm of stabalizer in the pool water.
 

Salt Water Chlorine Generation

When pool water is 55 degrees Fahrenheit or below, your salt system will mostly likely shut itself off, as no chlorine will be produced at or below this temperature. To keep chlorine levels consistent, putting a chlorine tablet or two in a floater or in the skimmer will be sufficient to maintain chlorine levels while the salt system is inactive.
 

Algae Prevention

Algae growth is severely slowed in water with cold temperatures, so with proper maintenance of a 1ppm - 6ppm chlorine level, the risk of algae bloom during the winter months is low. If algae does appear, a dose of shock or algaecide based on water volume and intensity of algae bloom is recommended to kill the algae.
 

Pool Cleaner

Running your pool cleaner one to two hours a day is recommended to keep the pool looking its best, even during the winter. If pool has a large amount of leaves, it is recommended to also manually empty pool of leaves with a net alongside use of a pool cleaner, as a heavy amount of leaves and debris will jam up and break pool cleaners.

Choosing a Pool Finish
By Phil Meek
Choosing a pool finish can be a confusing. The three popular types of pool finishes are EcoFinish, Wet Edge and Standard White.
 
With Eco Finish your pool finish can be easily transformed to a designer finish. It's a revolutionary finishing product that uses a scientifically formulated aquatic coating to provide a chip, peel, crack, and stain resistant seal that traditional gel-coat and paint finishes can’t deliver. With a variety of colors, you can easily find a solution to match your pools design.
 
Wet Edge, also referred to as pebble finish is a mixture of plaster and a durable substance such as stone. This is a dependable finish and features a perfect balance between man-made polymers and nature stone. Wet Edge comes in a wide variety of colors and textures which makes it perfect for premium pools.
 
Standard White Plaster is the most common pool finish and provides the most economical solution for most pool owners. This smooth pool finish is a simple combination of white cement, white marble aggregate, and water giving your pool that "classic swimming pool" look.
