Calcium Hardness in Pool

Swimming pool caretakers are putting up a lot of hard work when it comes to maintaining fresh and safe pool water to dip in. 

Calcium hardness is the total of all the calcium dissolved in the swimming pool water. An excessive amount of calcium dissolved in a swimming pool will bind with carbonates that may create calcium carbonate that causes inefficient water circulation, uneven surfaces, and cloudy water.

Calcium (Ca) is very important since high levels are unstable and will become more unstable if the pH scale or the overall pH scale rise on top of the traditional levels. These imbalances may end up in cloudy water. Calcium is usually more soluble in cold water, that is why scaling of pool water heater is very common. Calcium content in a pool is at its finest range between 100-400 ppm. It cannot be raised nor lowered unlike the pH or total alkalinity.

Adding a hardness increaser to the water simply raises calcium levels. Vice versa, there's no easy chemical addition that is created which will cut back calcium hardness. The one and the only method to cut back calcium hardness levels in pool water are thru suspension with water of lesser hardness. Over time, calcium hardness can naturally increase in pool water as a result of evaporation and presumably different factors unless the pool water is often diluted.

The best technique to minimize the impact of high calcium levels is by using a sequestering agent. A sequestering agent is a compound that, once added to the water, will automatically bind with calcium and other minerals to become more capable of disintegration. A sequestering agent ought to be included in your regular chemical maintenance program.

Always check the calcium hardness in your pool regularly. Proper maintenance from a knowledgeable company like AQUA DOC POOL CLINIC.  For your inquiries, just click this link and fill out the needed information. We will be sure we get in touch with you the soonest!
