Floating Particles

Floating Particles Floating particles can be caused by a number of factors, which could include dirt and dead skin. Solution For common cases where neither metals nor algae are suspected: Use Action Cube and clean [...]

High TDS (Total Dissolved Solids)

 High TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) The level of total dissolved solids (TDS) measures the combined contents of a liquid (your pool’s water) and of another substance of any nature. In other words, it represents [...]

High Stabilizer/Cyanuric Acid

High Stabilizer/Cyanuric Acid Crystal clear water is not always safe, and cloudy water illustrates evidence of strongly alkaline water. An excessively high stabilizer level will have the following effects: Slows down chlorine's reaction time. Cyanuric [...]

Phosphates

Phosphates Phosphates are a by-product of phosphorus which are the 11th most abundant mineral on earth and can easily be found in most tap water. In addition, phosphates are nutrients for and a by-product of [...]

Can’t Keep Chlorine in Pool

Slimy Walls

Slimy walls indicate that algae is starting to form– Therefore the problem needs to be treated just as if your pool has an algae problem Solution Use Correct Kit

Scaling

Scaling Scaling is most often an indication of high calcium hardness or high pH/alkalinity. If alkalinity is too high, the pH will tend to increase, causing chlorine to lose efficiency, water to turn [...]

Staining

Staining Staining usually indicates an issue with the level of metals in your water. The most common origin of metals in pool water is the water source itself. Water that runs through soil [...]
