How to safely manage an inflatable pool

Tips to manage safely and efficiently in your swimming pool


In the first place, you should know approximately the amount of water that you have in your pool. The volume of water your pool will determine the amount of treatment of swimming pools that you must add.

Do you have your pool instructions on how to use the filter and apply the disinfectant? Follow the manufacturer's instructions. The small pools inflatable (approximately 1 to 1.5 meters in diameter) can be used without additional treatment and can be emptied daily after use.


Add a disinfectant to the pool as recommended by the manufacturer of the same. Most of the disinfectants for swimming pools are based on the chlorine and can contain stabilizers to prevent degradation by sunlight.

There are also products to adjust the pH of the pool water. How do I know the amount of chemicals that I should add to the water in my pool? Always analyze the water to make sure that you have a chlorine level of 1 to 4 ppm of chlorine.

Test strips for swimming pools, are a useful tool to monitor the chlorine level and the pH value of your pool.

To analyze the water

Determine how you will analyze the water of your pool. Test strips for swimming pools can help control the levels of chlorine (“total chlorine” and “free chlorine”), and pH. As mentioned above, the pool water must be between 1 and 4 ppm of free chlorine and a pH of between 7.2 and 7.6.

The test of the 5 senses

Use your 5 senses to assess the overall state of the pool. Although it is important to measure and adjust the chemical levels of the pool several times a day, a simple sensory testing can help assess the overall state of their pools.


Can you see the floor of the pool? The clarity of the water is essential to avoid drowning. The murky water hides the fact that you're drowning. If the pool water is cloudy, you may need an algaecide or a wastewater treatment plant.


When you touch the sides of the pool, what surfaces are clean and slick? A slippery surface is a sign of microbial growth, and it could mean that the disinfection level is too low.


A swimming pool well-maintained should not have a strong chemical odor. A strong odor may indicate the presence of tricloramina, which is a form of irritant chlorine. This can cause redness of the eyes and itching of the skin in the bathers.

It is said that the pools that smell triclorometano have “too much” when in reality there may be very little. If you ask your son to take a shower (or at least rinse with a garden hose) before swimming to avoid “pee in the pool”, this can help prevent the irritation induced by the chlorine.


the sound of the filter working in the pool is a good sensory signal. This means that the water flows through a material filter as cartridges and sand, which helps to remove small particles from the water that can cause clouding and unsanitary conditions.


Needless to test the water of a swimming pool.

I hope that this brief guide will serve to check quickly the status of your swimming pool inflatable.
