Check Chemical Levels Weekly

IT IS ESSENTIAL TO MAINTAIN A pH READING BETWEEN 7.2 – 7.8.  IF THE READING FALLS BELOW OR ABOVE THESE READINGS, DAMAGE WILL BE DONE TO YOUR EQUIPMENT AND YOUR WARRANTY WILL BE VOID.

YOU SHOULD TEST YOUR CYANURIC ACID LEVELS TWICE A MONTH.  IDEAL RANGE IS 30 – 50 ppm.  YOU SHOULD REMOVE TABLETS AND USE GRANULAR CHLORINE UNTIL CYANURIC ACID LEVEL RETURNS TO NORMAL.
