There are many components that go into caring for a pool to keep it healthy and ready for swimming. Part of this is putting in the right chemicals in the right amounts to have balanced water. Let’s look at one of these important chemicals, pool conditioner.
What is Pool Conditioner?
Also referred to Cyanuric Acid and Pool Stabilizer, Pool Conditioner is a chemical compound known as triazine. It contains three nitrogen atoms and three carbon atoms. This chemical compound stabilizes the pool and helps keep the water clean longer.
How Does Pool Conditioner Work?
Chlorine in your pool water burns off with time while working to sanitize it. Chlorine can also dissipate in the UV rays of the sun. Pool Conditioner helps to protect the chlorine from burn off due to sun exposure. Without pool conditioner chlorine can burn off completely from your pool water in as little as two hours!
How to Add Conditioner to a Pool
The process of adding pool conditioner to pool water is not a super difficult one, but it is one that requires careful attention and exact following of instructions. Pool conditioner takes days, not minutes or a few hours to dissolve like many other pool chemicals do.
