Water Maintenance

Constant care for the quality and development of pool water care products provides safety and comfort for bathers.

In order to provide our clients with a quality experience, we cooperate with the company CHEMOFORM, producing top-quality water care products for private and public swimming pools since 1962.

  • pH value of water
    The ideal pH value of pool water must be in the range of 7.0 to 7.4. If the value is lower, the water is acidic and this causes corrosion of all metal parts in contact with the pool water. When the pH value is above 7.6, minerals are secreted (white flakes in the water and coating on the pool), itchy eyes, and burning skin. Also, with an increased pH value in water, disinfectants have a weaker effect, so the water becomes hygienically unacceptable.
  • Water disinfection 
    Organic chlorine is used for disinfection in private swimming pools, and it can be found on the market in tablets and as granules. The main ingredient in these forms of chlorine is isocyanuric acid, which prevents rapid evaporation of chlorine from the water due to temperature and strong sunlight. This form of chlorine does not reduce the pH value of the water - it is completely soluble in water so it does not allow mineral coatings to stick to the pool. It also enables long-term storage and is relatively safe and easy to use.
  • Prevention of algae
    Algae are the most widespread organisms. They grow in colonies and in conditions that are very similar to those in pool water. Algae themselves are not a source of infections, but they are an ideal source for the development of other microorganisms. Dead algae are great food for bacteria. Algae have the ability to become resistant to chlorine and cannot be destroyed by chlorine. That's why CHEMOFORM produced special liquids - algicides that prevent the growth of algae and easily destroy them.
  • Dealing with flakes
    It often happens that there is enough free chlorine in the water, but the water is still cloudy. Then the water needs to be treated properly, i.e. flocculation is a process in which micron particles that are so small that the filter cannot retain them are combined into one slightly larger particle that then remains in the filter.
  • Pool cleaning
    When cleaning the pool, it is necessary to make sure that the cleaning products do not contain substances that, when we pour water into the pool, will affect the quality of the water. Also, care should be taken that the products do not contain aggressive compounds that can damage the pool equipment. Also, it is not recommended to clean the pool in strong sunlight. When the pool is smeared with stubborn dirt, it is better to repeat the cleaning process than to use highly concentrated products. That way, we will better preserve the pool materials.

In overflow pools, the water flows into the peripheral channels located at the edges of the pool, from which it flows into the compensation tank, from where it is sucked into the filtration plant where the quality is checked, filtration is performed.

After that, the water returns to the pool via the return nozzles located on the floor of the pool, and thus the water circulates from the bottom up, which is a better way of circulation. The water is at the level of the edge of the pool, and its appearance gives the impression of a mirror. These pools represent a slightly more expensive and better option, but also the only option when building public pools due to the greater burden on bathers.

In addition to the technical characteristics that characterize these pools, their visual impression is no less important because a pool with an overflow wall for an infinity effect will satisfy even the most demanding aesthetic criteria. 

By installing skimmer circulation in the pool, a simpler and cheaper option is chosen for private and residential use. The water from the pool circulates using a skimmer and goes to the filtration plant where the quality is checked, filtration is carried out and possibly heating and disinfection.

The water returns to the pool via the return nozzles located opposite the skimmer. The water level in the pool is lower than the edge of the pool by approx. 10 cm, where surface water is collected by skimmers. Regulating the water level is most often done through a mechanical water level regulator, and through an overflow placed in the skimmer.
