SIN0721_½ ad.indd 1 6/18/21 4:12 PM water is etching for an extended length of time the surface of the pool begins to become very rough, and eventually leads to the aggregate falling out of the plaster and delamination begins. Fiberglass pools are no exception to this rule and the calcium level is even more important. If a fiberglass pool is a little cloudy, my first thought is calcium. Once that calcium is right in line where it needs to be, the pool water is clear and shimmery, beautiful! A commercial pool I visited last year had an issue they didn’t realize was there until a large number of the pool patrons complained about their teeth hurting, now that’s a head scratcher. Once they tested the water and found that the calcium was at zero, wow, it was clear as to why everyone’s teeth hurt, the water was struggling to find balance so much that it was pulling the calcium from their teeth! All the chemicals involved in calculating the LSI are important for the water to be in balance. It is important that we continue to find balance as we grow our companies. Balanced water ensures we are prolonging the life of the pool surface, equipment, and most importantly the people who use them and their teeth!
