What are the Recommended Water Chemistry Levels for my Pool?
This table summarizes the levels that are recommended by the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP). The only requirements for the Aqua Rite are the salt level and stabilizer. It is important to maintain these levels in order to prevent corrosion or scaling and to ensure maximum enjoyment of your pool.
Test your water periodically. Most pool stores can provide you with the chemicals and procedures to adjust the water chemistry. Be sure to tell the pool store if you are using an Aqua Rite chlorine generator.
Chemical Ideal Levels
|Salt||2700 to 3400 ppm|
|Free Chlorine||1.0 to 3.0 ppm|
|pH||7.2 to 7.8|
|Cyanuric Acid (Stabilizer)||60 to 80 ppm (80 ppm best)|
|Total Alkalinity||80 to 120 ppm|
|Calcium Hardness||100 to 400 ppm|
|Saturation Index||-2 to .2 (0 best)|
