Q:

How do you use swimming pool clarifiers?

A:

Using a swimming pool clarifier simply involves putting a few ounces of the clarifying solution in the pool every day until the pool is clear. When a swimming pool clarifier is being used, the pool filter should be kept running around the clock.

Swimming pool clarifiers work by coagulating tiny particles in the water until they become big enough for the pool filter to catch them. A pool will clear more quickly if the main drain is on and if people swim in the pool so as to kick up the particles resting on the bottom of the pool. If the pool has no main drain, a manual pool vacuum should be set upside down at the bottom of the pool.

    How do you use calcium chloride in a swimming pool?

    A:

    Calcium chloride is added to pool water to bring up the levels of calcium, magnesium and sodium in the pool. The combined level of these minerals is known as calcium hardness. If the pool does not have the appropriate levels of these minerals, it will pull them from other sources such as the concrete, stone, grout, masonry or metal surrounding the pool. This can lead to costly repairs.
