What Chemicals do I Need for My Pool? A Basic Overview
Below is a list of the water balance basics that will help ensure that you have a trouble-free pool season:
Basic Water Balance Factors
Chlorine (1-3 ppm)
pH (7.2 - 7.4 ideal)
Total Alkalinity (80-100 ppm)
Stabilizer Level (30-50 ppm)
Calcium Hardness (200-800 ppm)
Water Balance Basics
At the beginning of the season take a water sample to your Authorized Sustain Dealer for complete analysis.
Do not start on the SUSTAIN System until all water balance factors have been established.
Make sure that all of your equipment is operating properly:
Check pump and filter.
Make sure the skimmer is unobstructed.
Adjust the return jets to minimize dead spots in the circulation of filtered water.
Test pool water with a DPD kit or Test Strips once a week (or more often depending on pool use and weather conditions).
Take a water sample to your dealer for testing every 6 weeks.
Run your pump at least 12 hours per day.
Follow SUSTAIN product label directions.
Never mix chemicals.
