What is Water Hardness?
Total Hardness in the context of pool water refers to the total mineral content of the water. This is made up of calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese and other elements. These elements are present in the water used to fill the pool, and the levels can increase through the use of regular pool chemicals (e.g. chlorine composed of calcium hypochlorite). As water evaporates these minerals stay and become compounded.

The ideal range for calcium hardness is 250-350 ppm.

When calcium hardness is too high, the result will be scale formation on all pool surfaces. The filter and pipes become clogged, reducing water flow and filtration efficiency. The water becomes cloudy and swimmers complain of eye irritations.

Reducing calcium hardness is very difficult. The best solution is to drain your pool and fill with new water.

What is cyanuric acid?
Chlorine, which we use as a sanitizer in our pools, is very unstable. The effects of the sun's UV rays and high temperatures reduces chlorine's effectiveness and breaks it down into inactive components.

Stabilizer, or cyanuric acid, is a compound which protects the chlorine from the negative effects of UV and heat. It not only ensures that our pool remains clean and safe for the swimmers throughout the day, but it also reduces the amount of chlorine we need to add in order to maintain these levels of disinfection.

"According to research results, pools without stabilizer lose about 90% of their total chlorine residual on a sunny day in two or three hours. Pools treated with 25 to 50 milligrams per liter of cyanuric acid, however, under the same conditions, lose only 10 to 15 percent of their total chlorine." (White et. al. , 1972)

Ideally, the stabilizer should be maintained at a level of about 50 ppm, the acceptable limits being 40-80 ppm. The chlorine tablets have stabilizer in them, over time this increases the amount in the pool. If the stabilizer becomes too high, it makes the chlorine ineffective as a sanitizing agent.

To reduce the amount of stabilizer in a swimming the recommendation is to drain and refill the pool.

What is Total Dissolved Solids?

Total dissolved solids (TDS) is, as its name implies, the measure of the total amount of dissolved material in the water.

The level of TDS in the pool is influenced by many factors; the chemicals we add to adjust the pH, chlorine, water hardness, alkalinity, dust, dirt, human waste, . . . all increase its level.

The maximum acceptable level of TDS for swimming pools is 1,500 ppm. At values above this, we begin to notice stains in the pool. It will also reduce the activity of any chemicals you add, preventing them from doing what they're supposed to. The water may also become cloudy.

Unfortunately, if the TDS level is too high, there is little that can be done to reduce it. The only practical solution is to drain the water from the pool and replace it with fresh water (with a low TDS). A regular backwashing routine will help to prevent the TDS from rising too much. Some pools we cannot backwash regularly because of the type of filter that is being used.

Have you ever got in your pool expecting to relax but instead you felt irritated and your eyes felt like they were burning?
Have you ever had to pay extra for chemicals?
Have you ever looked for a new pool service provider because you kept getting charged for extra chemicals all the time?
Do you have a thick calcium line on your tile?
Have you ever had a stain on your pool plaster?
All of these questions have a lot to do with the water in your pool and how high the Cyanuric Acid, TDS, or Water Hardens level is.
