A clean, safe pool is simple to maintain. Here are some basics for caring for a backyard swimming pool.
For a new pool, or spring start up, start by super chlorinating or “shocking” the pool.
Frequency of testing and treatment of water will depend on temperature and number of swimmers.
Every seven days, or as necessary, super chlorinate with 52 to 104 oz of Austin’s Pool Tech Pool Shock for each 10,000 gallons of water. Test yield to 5 to 10 ppm available chlorine by weight.
Entry into treated pools is prohibited above levels of 4 ppm due to risk of bodily injury.
Before adding algaecide, backwash the filter thoroughly. Pool should have 1 – 3 ppm available chlorine by weight.
