Season Start

At the start of the swimming season perform your regular start-up procedures:

  1. Check water levels.
  2. Check all safety equipment around the pool area.
  3. Clean baskets and skimmer boxes.
  4. Take a water sample to your local pool shop for analysis and make any recommended adjustments.
  5. Perform a backwash to clear any debris out of the filter
  6. Check for the presence of phosphates and remove with Phosphate Remover as soon as possible.
  7. Check salinity levels are correct (between 4000-5000ppm), refer to the Water Chemistry Parameters guide in this PDF to adjust, as needed.

Regular Seasonal Maintenance

  1. When having your water chemistry checked, be sure to tell your pool shop that you have an acquatherepé mineral pool. There are certain readings that they’ll need to be aware of.
  2. Ensure your mineral levels are correct at all times and add acquatherepé minerals as required. Most salt chlorinators will have a light that appears on the power pack that will let you know when you are getting low.
  3. Visually check your cell every month in the swimming season. If you notice any deposits, remove the cell and clean off with a diluted acid solution. Also, check the hardness level and refer to the Water Chemistry Parameters guide if it needs correcting.

Water Testing Special Information

All water test parameters remain as per standard water testing and treatment of a saltwater pool. However, magnesium will cause the hardness reading to appear unusually high. It is imperative that at least once a year a true calcium hardness reading is conducted by your local pool care professional to ensure you have correct calcium balance in your pool.

If starting your acquatherepe pool from a new pool, your calcium levels should be around 50-150ppm for a fibreglass pool or 150-500ppm for a concrete pool.

If retrofitting to an existing pool, take a sample of water to a pool shop prior to adding the acquatherepe minerals or Transform and make any required adjustments, paying particular attention to the hardness levels to ensure correct levels.
