We need to check for sanitizer, pH, alkalinity, cyanuric acid, calcium hardness, total dissolved solids, metals, and salt, if applicable. All of these factors tie together in what is known as the Langelier Saturation Index. While each individual field is important, the overall condition of...

Chlorine Shock vs Non-Chlorine Swimming Pool Shock

We all use sanitizer to keep our bodies of water safe. Chlorine is the most widely used form of sanitation. It is available in granular, liquid, and tablet form.
