Ever wondered what happens to your pool when it rains? I love technology when it helps solve a big day to day hassle and thought I would share this with you.

Ever wondered what happens to your pool after a rainstorm? Well I never did until I started using PoolSense the results are fascinating. Firstly it is important to understand that pH is critical to the effectiveness of chlorine and that if your pool is too acidic or too alkaline your chlorine becomes ineffective in its job to kill bacteria. This means you can your pool may look great and you can throw as much chlorine into the pool as possible and it simply won’t be effective, you may as well throw it down the toilet. A huge waste of money. This is where I realised the value of using technology to help manage my pool.

The pH spiked as it started to rain, and remains out of limits. I dosed with Acid this morning and as you can see the pH has returned to the limts where Chlorine now becomes effective. TheĀ  Chlorine levels crashed after a thunderstorm and has remained low as the chlorine struggles to finish of the bugs introduced by a host of organics that fell into the pool a couple of days ago.

PoolSense helps you make taking care of your pool easy as 1-2-3.
