The water in your swimming pool water needs chemicals added to keep it healthy, and these chemicals need to be used in the right way.

Here are some tips for use and handling of pool chemicals...

  1. Chemicals should be added while the pool pump is running so the chemicals mix well and are evenly distributed through your pool.
  2. Chlorine and pH levels are the most important levels in your pool water. See our Water Chemistry page for water test values.
  3. Shock dosing your pool every week in the summer with chlorine prevents algae growth.
  4. Read instructions thoroughly on each product/box before use.
  5. Where possible, wear protective gear such as gloves and goggles.
  6. Never use unlabelled chemicals.
  7. When pre dissolving chemicals always add chemicals to water and not vice versa. Pre dissolve chemicals in a clean,plastic container in a well ventilated area.
  8. Wash hands after handling pool chemicals.
  9. Store chemicals well away from children and pets in a secure,cool and dry place.
