Take your written test results from Step 2: Test Water and enter them into the Water Balance Calculator. If you do not know the volume of your pool, you will need to calculate that. By following the link, you will find a calculator to help you with that too.
Follow the simple instructions for the Water Balance Calculator and get a thorough water analysis and prescription. The prescription will give a detailed list of which chemicals need to be added to balance your pool water including the amount you need to add specifically for your pool. Add the prescribed chemicals.
You should always add the chemicals last after all of the other maintenance has been completed.
You are finished! Great job cleaning your pool yourself.
