At NextGen Pool Service, we understand that the secret behind every crystal-clear and inviting pool is a finely tuned chemical balance. Chemical balancing is a delicate art, and in the arid climate of Phoenix Arizona, it’s a crucial aspect of pool care. Our Chemical Balancing Service is meticulously designed to ensure your pool water is perfectly adjusted, resulting in a luxurious and comfortable swim experience every time you dive in.

Here’s what our Chemical Balancing Service entails:

Detailed Chemical Testing:
Our expert technicians begin with a comprehensive analysis of your pool’s water chemistry. We’ll test for:

  • pH Levels: We ensure your pool water’s pH is maintained between 7.4 and 7.6, the optimal range that parallels the human eye’s pH, to prevent irritation and protect your pool equipment from damage due to acidity or alkalinity.
  • Total Alkalinity: To prevent the pH from ‘bouncing’, we aim for an alkalinity range of 100-150 ppm, which acts as the pH buffer for the water, stabilizing it against sudden changes.
  • Chlorine: As the primary sanitizer, chlorine levels are calibrated between 1-3 ppm to eliminate bacteria and algae without causing discomfort to the skin or eyes.
  • Calcium Hardness: Hard water can lead to scale, and too soft can be corrosive, so we maintain calcium hardness in the 200-400 ppm range for the perfect balance.
  • Cyanuric Acid: Often referred to as pool conditioner or stabilizer, cyanuric acid levels are kept between 30-50 ppm to prevent chlorine loss due to sunlight.
  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS): We monitor TDS to ensure water freshness and prevent issues that arise from high TDS levels, which can reduce the effectiveness of pool chemicals.

Chemical Adjustment:
Armed with data from our comprehensive testing, our technicians will carefully adjust the chemicals in your pool. Here’s how we handle common imbalances:

  • For Low pH: We’ll add a base, such as sodium carbonate (soda ash), to raise the pH to the ideal level.
  • For High pH: If the pH is too high, we’ll add an acid, typically muriatic acid or sodium bisulfate, to bring it back down to the optimal range.
  • For Low Alkalinity: We raise total alkalinity with an addition like sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to help stabilize the pH.
  • For High Alkalinity: Total alkalinity can be brought down through the careful addition of muriatic acid, done in stages to prevent drastic pH changes.

We also manage your sanitizer, algaecide, and clarifier levels to ensure your pool not only looks pristine and inviting but is also safe and healthy for swimming.

Continued Comfort and Clarity:
Through our Chemical Balancing Service, we strive to create the ultimate swim environment. We understand the nuances of regional water conditions throughout the Phoenix area and the particular problems posed by a challenging Phoenix Arizona’s pool servicing climate. With our expertise, we aim for perfect clarity, leaving your pool free of irritants, cloudiness, and algae.
