So we should know what swimming pool water looks like and what it should look like. Various chemicals are added to swimming pool water for health reasons. So swimming pool water is divided into three parts.

Chlorine water

Chlorine is an important chemical that has long been used to sanitize swimming pool water. Chlorine was used as an anti-bacterial in swimming pools because it could kill any bacteria in the water.

This Rasanik is not only used in water. Chlorine is also used when cleaning pools. It is available in the market in three general conditions. Chlorine is available in the market in three states: solid, crystalline, and liquid. It has a long lifespan and costs less. Therefore, the use of chlorine in swimming pools is the highest.

While there are many advantages to using chlorine in pools, there are also some disadvantages. Chlorinated swimming pools require a lot of maintenance. It is not possible to predict in advance what reaction this chemical may cause.

It also has many unpredictable reactions to the many types of microorganisms present in the pool. Chlorine mixes with water to form a substance called ‘chloramine’ which causes pool water to smell bad. Any swimming pool accident can happen due to improper use or storage. So be very careful while using or storing.

Saltwater pool

A saltwater pool is a saltwater swimming pool. In this type of swimming pool salt should be applied instead of chlorine. The salt is then converted into chlorine by a chlorine generator.

Due to the high level of salt applied, the water in such swimming pools is very salty. Water with a salt content of 5000 ppm (CHC) is considered to be of poor quality. Generally, PPM levels between 3000-4000 are considered normal. The salinity level in saltwater pools is about 10th of the salinity of ocean water.

Mineral water pool

Mineral water pools are at the top among the most popular pools day by day. The reason for the popularity of mineral water pool is that it is the only pool that ensures maximum health protection. Mineral water pools also known as Magnapools are premium quality swimming pools. It may be built with fiberglass on top or underground.

Magnapool water is rich in magnesium which is very beneficial for health. This water keeps the skin very soft, and hair very silky. On the other hand, bathing in common salt water or chlorine pool water makes the skin dry and the hair dull. Magnesium keeps water much clearer. It protects the skin from dryness as it does not contain salinity.

Regardless of the type of pool you use, health safety must be kept in mind before using the pool. Swimming is an exercise that benefits every part of the body.
