How to Clean and Maintain Your Swimming Pool or Hot Tub
Regardless of where you live or what kind of pool you own, you’re going to have to test your pool water chemistry. Testing your pool helps keep the water safe from viruses, bacteria, and algae and ensures chemical levels are safe and comfortable for swimmers.
To keep your swimming pool or hot tub at its best, it’s important that you accurately calculate your water volume. All of the chemical balancing recommendations you receive from the Pool Calculator are based on it. The Pool Volume Calculator that is built into the Pool Calculator is designed to help you calculate the volume of rectangular, oval, and circular pools quickly. You can get the volume in metric units (liters) or in imperial units (gallons).
There are few things that can stop a pool party altogether—one of these things is cloudy swimming pool water. Cloudy water can be potentially dangerous, so never swim if your water looks less than clear. Testing your pool chemistry can determine whether this issue is caused by a chemical imbalance…
Interested in learning more about what it takes to keep your pool or hot tub in great shape? This article describes the chemistry involved in keeping your pool or hot tub safe and your water crystal clear. It will help you better understand what the tests you are taking mean, and what happens when your pool chemistry is no longer in the recommended ranges.
Your pool is the perfect place for family fun in the sun—if it’s kept safe and clean. It’s important to pick a method of sanitation for your pool that works for your lifestyle.

Dogs love water! If you have a swimming pool, your dog is going to want to swim. Should you let them? The short answer is that assuming your pool is properly balanced (especially the sanitizer – whether bleach or salt), there’s nothing wrong with allowing your dog in the pool. Here are some ways you can make swimming safer and more healthy for your dog and the entire family.
Everyone enjoys having a clean and clear pool, but maintaining perfectly balanced pool chemistry can be a challenge. It is necessary to learn what each pool test means and why it is important in keeping your pool in perfect shape. We will cover four components of pool chemistry: free chlorine, pH, total alkalinity and cyanuric acid.
Most people think that dogs are natural swimmers. Many are, but some are not. Some of the worst swimmers have non-buoyant bodies, so will sink to the bottom of the swimming pool if they aren’t wearing a life vest. Examples of dogs that are not safe unattended by the pool include basset hounds, bulldogs, dachshund, bugs and boxers. Even if your dog is NOT a natural swimmer, you can still introduce them to your pool and give them the enjoyment of swimming with your family.
