Maintain your spa, gym or pool water with these Chlorine Dioxide (Chlorogene T25) water purification tablets. A highly effective tool against the build-up of commonly found viruses and bacteria, these compact water treatment tablets get to work fast and bring your water back to a comfortable level.
Today, we discuss microorganism water testing and Legionella. Although this word on its own may mean very little to you, you may have heard of Legionnaire disease – a potentially fatal pneumonia. It is caused by the bacterium, Legionella pneumophila. Bacteria such as this and other similar types are commonly found in natural sources of water such as rivers, lakes and reservoirs. What you may not know is that they can also be found in purpose-built water systems such as cooling towers, hot/cold water systems and pools.
Being a responsible pool owner requires a considerable amount of work and is even recognised as a full time job in many spas. There are daily testings, weekly testings, biocide addition, cleaning filters and various other pool maintenance tasks to perform. These are all vital jobs to ensure the safety and comfort of your bathers and swimmers.
Water hardness, also known as Calcium Harness or Total Hardness, is the final part of the Water Balance Triad. You may know that it has an effect on your pool but today we will discuss how and why it is so important. The best analogy for the effect that neglecting calcium levels has on a pool is one that refers to cars.

In this post, we move on from pH to Total Alkalinity – the backbone of the Water Balancing Triad. Total Alkalinity is the key to balancing your pH readings. You should have readings of between 80 – 120ppm (part per million) whenever you test your pool, spa or hot tub. By maintaining these level readings, you will maintain a stable pH and buffer out swings outside of the optimal 7.2 and 7.8 pH.
Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment for your customers is vital to guarantee their comfort.
