It is essential to be informed about the aspects to be taken into account and to know the safety and sanitary regulations applicable to a community pool.
To do this, we will divide the maintenance tasks into three large groups: maintenance of the pool water, maintenance of the filtering and purification equipment and maintenance of the pool vessel.
Pool water maintenance:
About pool water, there are two fundamental factors related to water quality to which we must pay special attention:
What is the pool water pH?
The acronym pH means hydrogen potential and is a measure that indicates the acidity or basicity of water. This measure is determined by the number of hydrogen-free ions (H +) in the substance.
– The pH measurement scale comprises values from 0 to 14 – 0 being the most acidic, 14 the most basic and placing the Neutral pH at 7.
– The pH of the water must be neutral (between 7.2 and 7.6).
– With a pH too alkaline, above 7.6, the disinfectant loses effectiveness.
– With a pH below 7.2, too acidic, water can irritate the eyes, mucous membranes and affect the skin.
How long do you have to filter the pool water?
The power of the treatment plants is measured in cubic meters per hour, or it’s equivalent in liters. 1 m³ = 1000 liters. Therefore, a filtration pump with a flow rate of 8 m³ / h will be able to move 8000 liters per hour.
Water disinfection of community pools:
We must avoid both the proliferation of bacteria in the water and the generation of algae because they provide the right environment for fungi to grow. Currently, two different methods are used to treat water: chlorine treatment (sodium chloride) and saline chlorination.
In the first place to perform a proper cleaning of the pool, it is necessary to have some basic tools such as the vacuum cleaner. The cost of all these tools is usually high and when they break down it is necessary to fix them or buy new ones. However, when you have hired a pool maintenance service, we will be the ones who carry the material and you will not have to worry about anything.
