Chemical Treatment is needed for two very important reasons:

  • Water must be balanced (neither corrosive nor scaling) so sanitizers can work properly.
  • Proper sanitization will prevent/ remove infectious organisms and organic waste as well as keep the water free from algae.

Chemical Storage & Handling

  • Liquid chemicals should always be displayed on the bottom shelf; you should never have dry chemicals underneath a liquid.
  • Always add the chemical to the water, never the water to the chemical. This is very important because some chemical will explode.
  • Keep the chemicals out of direct sunlight in a dry cool area. Always keep the product in the original container and away from children.
  • Make sure the area where your chemicals are kept is neat, tidy and spacious.
  • If a chemical liquid spills, tend to it immediately by adding a large amount of water to make sure the chemical has been diluted.
  • Store your Muriatic Acid separately form the chlorine and bromine. Balance Pak 200 will neutralize an acid spill.
