  • Stabilizer What is swimming pool water Stabilizer?
  • Up Flow Filter Up-flow filters are sometimes used for swimming pool water filtration, where the key advantages are high flow rate, reduced filter maintenance, and overall reduced filtration costs.
  • Vermiculite Vermiculite is a naturally occurring product used as a base material in swimming pools to help form and support for pool liners.
  • Water Quality Water quality describes water that has undergone a series of measurements to determine how well the water adheres to established water standards.
  • Ultraviolet (UV) Sanitizer Ultraviolet (UV) sanitizers are installable systems designed to sanitize swimming pool water of harmful microbes without the use of chemicals.
  • Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation Ultraviolet (UV) radiation describes specific ultraviolet rays of energy emitted from the sun, which swimmers and swimming pools and pool water are exposed to.
  • Trichlor Trichlor tablets are commonly used in chlorinated swimming pools to help sanitize the pool water.
  • Swimming Pool Liner Swimming pool liners typically refer to vinyl liners, which are installed inside a pre-constructed support structure and are responsible for holding the water inside the swimming pool.
  • Total Hardness Total hardness in swimming pool water describes the combined quantity of dissolved metals and minerals in the water.
  • Sulfuric Acid Reagent Sulfuric acid reagent is a substance often found in pool test kits, and used as a pH-reducing substance in an acid demand test and as an acid indicator in total alkalinity tests.
  • Solar Pool Heater Definition Solar pool heaters describe a variety of products, as some pump pool water through tubes heated by the sun, and others serve as mats or blankets that cover the pool water and heat the water as they are exposed to sunlight while insulating the water during evening hours.
  • Slow Sand Filter Slow sand filters filter swimming pool water by passing water through sand, where the water trickles through the sand particles, leaving any contaminates behind in the sand.
  • Skimmer Plate A skimmer plate is located at the water line, and serves as the location where the surface of the water flows towards the plate, pulling any floating debris into the plate.
  • Skimmer Basket The skimmer basket is located just behind the skimmer plate, and collects debris and objects that have traveled along the surface of the water into the skimmer plate.
  • Siphon Siphon describes both a process and a device, which often involves using a tube to drain swimming pool water from inside the pool, or a pool cover pump to siphon water from a pool cover.
  • Shotcrete Pool Shotcrete pools are constructed by spraying a wet concrete and aggregate mixture onto the swimming pool walls and floors.
  • Salt Chlorine Generators Salt chlorine generators manufacture chlorine that can be used by a swimming pool for sanitation, avoiding or reducing the amount of chlorine that needs to be added by other means.
  • Robotic Pool Cleaners Robotic pool cleaners scrub walls and floors of swimming pools, drastically decreasing the time taken to do such activities.
  • Precipitate Precipitates are materials free-floating in swimming pool water, often the result of sudden changes in water chemistry, and can result in cloudy pool water.
  • Pool Water Ionizer A pool water ionizer relies on emitting silver and copper ions into a portion of swimming pool water, creating sodium hypochlorite, which introduces small amounts of chlorine into the pool water for sanitation.
  • Pool Stains Pool stains can occur on swimming pool walls, floors, and steps, often due to excessive metals present in the water, or algae growth.
  • Pool Heater Pool heaters are often used to keep swimming pool water warm and inviting in areas where pool water cannot be kept warm naturally.
  • Pool Skimmer A pool skimmer pulls in floating contaminates and objects from the swimming pool and into the skimmer basket, and helps keep the pool free of debris.
  • Pool Pump Filter A pool pump filter is usually attached to or located directly next to the pool pump, trapping large objects before they enter the pool pump.
  • Pool Pump A swimming pool pump is responsible for circulating pool water through the pool, plus direct water through the various cleaning, heating, and sanitizing equipment.
  • Pool Cover Pool covers for swimming pools serve a variety of purposes, like safety, prevent debris, reduce heat loss, water evaporation, and damage from the environment.
  • Pool Coping Swimming pool coping describes the structural support found where the pool walls meet the pool decking which surrounds the pool.
  • Particulate Particulate is a general term to describe any foreign material in swimming pool water, usually free-floating and contributing to a cloudy pool.
  • Out Of Solution Out of solution generally describes a substance that is no longer dissolved in swimming pool water, as changing water chemistry can often result in minerals and metals no longer in-solution in the pool water.
  • Ozone Generator An ozone generator for swimming pools produces ozone and releases it into the water, oxidizing contaminates and sanitizing the pool water.
  • Natural Gas Pool Heater Natural gas pool heaters are a common choice for swimming pool owners, as easy availability of natural gas, relatively low cost of heating equipment while providing efficient heat with low maintenance are advantages of natural gas pool heaters.
  • Mineral Sanitizers Mineral sanitizers are often installed in modern swimming pools, reducing the need for chemical-based sanitizers like chlorine.
  • Microbes Microbes are constantly entering swimming pool water, and is a major reason for necessary sanitation of swimming pool water.
  • Micron A micron is a unit of length, equal to one twenty five thousandth of an inch (1 / 25,000), and is used often when describing the size of particulates a swimming pool filter system can capture.
  • Magnesium Hardness Magnesium hardness describes the level of magnesium carbonate levels in swimming pool water.
