Having an inground pool on your property is a pretty amazing luxury that can offer comfort, convenience, and fun all summer long. But maintaining a pool is also a lot of work and requires adherence to a strict cleaning and maintenance schedule. For pool owners, understanding the basics of pool chemical safety is a must; chemical errors can be inconvenient, costly, and even dangerous. At Caribbean Pools, our team is available to guide you through the basics of pool chemical safety and handle all of your pool cleaning, maintenance, and chemical needs, too. Reach us today to learn more.
The chemicals that are applied to a pool on a regular basis serve a very specific purpose: to maintain pool water quality. While it may make you cringe a bit to think about, a swimming pool can be a hotspot for dirt, grime, and bacteria–a type of communal bathtub that requires thorough cleaning and attention. Pool chemicals help to keep things clean and safe by killing dangerous pathogens that can lead to unpleasant side effects, ranging from gastrointestinal complications to skin rashes. Other chemicals that are applied help to maintain the pH of the water so that the other chemicals and disinfectants are effective.
As the owner of a pool, it is incredibly important to understand that pool chemicals are 100 percent necessary, but also that pool chemicals errors can be dangerous. Not putting in chemicals or not putting in enough chemicals could lead to the proliferation of pathogens that cause disease and health complications. On the flip side, putting in too many chemicals, the wrong chemicals, or the wrong amount of chemicals in proportion to one another can lead to chemical injuries and chemical poisoning. For example, if chlorine or pH levels exceed set limits, inhalation of vapors and gases can lead to poisoning.
In order to maintain pool chemicals at a level that is safe and effective, it is critical to monitor levels on a regular basis. In addition to monitoring chemical levels, hiring a professional team for pool cleaning and chemical application is strongly recommended. In addition to paying attention to what goes into your pool, appropriate storage of pool chemicals is also critical; improper storage could lead to accidental exposure, ingestion, or contamination.

We made the great choice to use Caribbean Pools. They are professional, knowledgeable and responsive! They really stand by their product and installation. We've been really impressed with the company. I don't usually write reviews but they are an exceptional team and I wanted others to know that we have found them to be trustworthy!
First time visiting Caribbean Pools. Great staff. Bought a hot tub on the spot. Very informative and GREAT staff. They service the hot tubs they sell...BONUS! No problems so far. Have had our NORDIC Warrior XL since August. Absolutely love our hot tub and truly blessed that we bought it from Caribbean Pools.
We had an amazingly beautiful pool installed by Caribbean Pools. We love it so much, that we got a spa from them as well. Everyone that we dealt with along the way, from customer care to the service technicians, were absolutely wonderful! With my husband working crazy hours, I never worried about dealing with something going wrong with the pool…
I recommend Caribbean Pools to anyone looking to create a backyard oasis for their family. The crew was professional, courteous & knowledgeable. They were “work horses” & perfectionists with their work. Don’t waste your time getting estimates from anyone else. Caribbean Pools is the way to go!
