By “Water Balance” we mean:
pH 7.4 to 7.6
Total Alkalinity 80 to 140 ppm (depending on the type of pool)
Calcium Hardness 200 to 400 ppm
A pool is said to be in balance when the pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness are all within the recommended ranges. A regular testing and maintenance program also ensures that if problems arise, they can be quickly and easily corrected.
