Well-Balanced Pool Chemical Levels
When you put chemicals into your swimming pool, it helps ensure the water is safe for swimming. Maintaining the proper balance of these chemicals is what keeps your pool water clean and helps prevent discoloration. The water in your pool typically won’t be changed for several years and will endure stagnating periods while unused. During these times, a good chemical balance is still needed to keep your pool ready for your initial spring opening and those upcoming heavy-use months.
Not paying attention to your pool’s chemical levels can end up being a costly mistake. Too much of the wrong chemical can cause significant damage to your pool’s features, materials, and equipment. And if you are not closely monitoring its chemical levels, your swimming pool may become unusable for periods of time.

Safe Pool Chemical Handling and Storage
Almost all pool chemicals are powerful substances intended to shock your pool’s water, effectively cleaning it. If handled improperly, these harsh chemicals can cause burns and other injuries. They’re designed to be diluted in the water, making them most hazardous in their concentrated form. Tips for proper chemical handling include:
- Read all product labels and directions before application
- Use appropriate personal protective equipment
- Wash hands after working with pool chemicals
- Keep children and animals away from your pool supply storage area
- Promptly respond to skin irritations that may arise
Knowing how to properly store your pool’s chemicals is equally important. Since they are potentially hazardous substances, they are best stored in a secure area with controlled access. Tips for proper chemical storage include:
- Avoid exposure to sunlight and humidity: The best place to store pool chemicals is in an area that does not receive direct sunlight. Many chemicals may react poorly in bright conditions.
- Provide plenty of ventilation: Dangerous fumes can accumulate if pool chemicals begin to react. Having adequate ventilation can help minimize the risks associated with this issue.
- Do not reuse or switch containers: When storing pool chemicals, always use the original container. Each container was designed for the specific storage requirements of the chemical it contains, so it’s never advisable to switch containers.
For more information, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers a variety of insights into safe pool chemical storage and handling.
