Test for pH and sanitizer levels
If you test your own water, check the pH and free chlorine or bromine levels.
The chart below provides the proper levels to keep your water crystal clear.
|Test Factor||Ideal Range|
|Free Chlorine||1.0 to 3.0 PPM|
|Total Bromine||1.0 to 3.0 PPM|
|Total Alkalinity||80 to 150 PPM|
|– Plaster Pools||200 to 275 PPM|
|– All Others||125 to 300 PPM|
If any of these levels are not in their proper range, consult our
Pool Care Guide for the proper chemicals to bring them into balance.
