Unlocking the Secrets to Effective Pool Service with Low Buck Pools

San Jose Pool Maintenance

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes before your pool service begins? At Low Buck Pools, we believe a thorough understanding of your pool’s unique needs is essential for delivering top-notch service. Join us as we uncover the key checkpoints we look for before starting our weekly pool service.

Heavy Metals Heavy metals such as copper and iron can wreak havoc on your pool water chemistry. These metals can react with oxidizers like chlorine, resulting in discolored water often mistaken for algae. The EPA recommends a maximum of 1 ppm for heavy metals to prevent staining and maintain water clarity.

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) TDS measures the total amount of inorganic salts and some organic matter dissolved in your pool water. Over time, evaporation can increase TDS levels, leaving behind various minerals and salts. High TDS levels can hinder chlorine’s ability to disinfect effectively. It’s advisable to drain your pool completely every 5 years or gradually remove water monthly to manage TDS buildup.

Cyanuric Acid (CYA) Cyanuric acid is critical in stabilizing chlorine levels in your pool. However, excessively high CYA levels can hinder chlorine’s effectiveness against bacteria and viruses. Maintaining CYA levels within recommended ranges (California recommends 1 to 5 ppm) ensures optimal chlorine performance. A CYA level of 100 or higher may require unrealistic chlorine levels to maintain proper sanitation.

Why It Matters Addressing these key checkpoints before starting our weekly pool service ensures that your pool receives the attention it deserves. By monitoring and managing heavy metals, TDS, and CYA levels, we can maintain water clarity, prevent staining, and optimize chlorine performance, keeping your pool safe and inviting for swimming.
