Pool owners often become overwhelmed with the amount of pool chemicals on the market. Our philosophy is to onlyAqua1 sell our customers what they need. We can help simplify matters by explaining what every chemical does and how it should be used properly. Here is a basic chemical treatment program that will help you keep your pool looking great all season. 

Chemical Treatment Program (Medium Pool – Approximately 90,000 L)

Daily

  1. Check pH and chlorine levels and adjust if necessary.
  2. Empty baskets in pump and skimmer (ensure that the heater has been off for at least 20 minutes prior to turning off pump)
  3. Brush and skim pool.

Weekly

  1. Refill chemical dispenser (chlorinator or brominator).
  2. Broadcast 1 kg (approximately 2 cups) of oxidizer (non-chlorine shock treatment) over surface of pool.
  3. Vacuum pool.
  4. Backwash filter.
  5. Top up pool if necessary.

NOTE: It may be necessary to super-chlorinate your pool with unstabilized chlorine if one of the following conditions has been encountered:

  • Heavy rain
  • Hot weather for several days
  • Chlorine level drops below 1 PPM
  • Pool is cloudy
  • Heavy bather load

TIP: Brushing your pool regularly will prevent algae growth and save money on chlorine.

Testimonials

Dave and his team at Total Tech have been amazing on all fronts. They are very knowledgeable on water testing and balancing with detailed instructions on how to remedy. Dave researched how to sync various systems when I wanted to install a high efficiency pool pump. Their pool closing service was impeccably done. Thank you Dave and team. I highly recommend Total Tech to my friends.

Thank you Total Tech Pools! For years I’ve looked for a reliable pool company to open and close my pool along with service. On time, very professional. Keep up the good work. I will recommend you to all pool owners.

We had just purchased our new home in 2011 and was the first pool we owned. I knew going in that we would definitely need a lot of work done, that’s when I met Dave and he also introduced me to Roy of Rosa and Rosa landscaping. Dave and his team were always professional, courteous, and true to their commitments. Dave never tried to oversell. He was upfront and honest on what I needed for my pool. He even made recommendations that lowered my costs. Extremely pleased by the work done by Total Tech Pools.
