My water conditions aren’t right, what chemicals should I use?

Check out our Chemical Chart for a possible solution.

Cloudy waterExcessive organic contaminants or lack of sanitizerShock treat with non-chlorine shock
and adjust sanitizer level
Dissolved chemical solidsUse clarifier to help remove small
pH balance or total alkalinity is incorrectTest total alkalinity and pH. Correct
with pH increaser or pH decreaser.
Calcium too high (hard water)Use a sequestering agent weekly. Replace some water with softer water.
Dirty filterClean filter with filter cartridge cleaner.
Chalky, white
scale deposits
Mineral deposits in waterUse a sequestering agent. Check water balance and adjust as necessary.
Clear green waterHigh iron or copper contentUse a sequestering agent
Cloudy green waterLow alkalinity levelUse pH increaser
low sanitizer levelTest sanitizer level, shock with
non-chlorine shock
Brown waterHigh iron or manganese levelUse a sequestering agent
Chlorine odorChloramines (combined chlorine level) is high.Shock with non-chlorine shock
Eye/skin irritationOrganic contaminants, chloramines, or pH out of balanceShock with non-chlorine shock.
Test and adjust pH level.
FoamingHigh concentration of chemicals due to evaporation and build-up of body oils, cosmetics and other contaminantsUse foam reducer. Shock treat with non-chlorine shock. Use enzyme reducer weekly as part of regular maintenance
Pitting of metal fixturespH too lowTest and adjust pH and total
alkalinity by adding pH up.
Total alkalinity too low
