How to Reduce Chlorine Demand

The outdoors is “in” in 2021 as more people are staying at home and enjoying their backyard retreats.

This, among other things, has put an increase in demand on pool chemicals and supplies. If your backyard retreat includes a swimming pool, learn how to reduce your chlorine demand.

How to Reduce Chlorine Demand

You’ll find several different products at Ultra Modern that help you reduce the amount of chlorine your pool is using while still keeping it clear, clean, and healthy.

Let’s look at a few ways you can reduce demand while enjoying your swimming pool with family and friends all summer long.

  • Apply a preventive algaecide. This is a very easy way to help your chlorine do its job. Algaecide prevents algae growth and reduces the amount of chlorine you need to control it.
  • Use phosphate removal products such as the new BioGuard Pool Juice products. Algae loves to eat phosphates. So, when you use phosphate removal products, you prevent algae growth and again reduce chlorine demand.
  • You also want to use water clarifiers to keep your water free of particulate matter because it makes your chlorine work too hard.
  • Use filter cleaners to keep your filter cleaners clean. This decreases chlorine use because by cleaning your filters you remove build up and waste. It also helps your sanitizers work better because clean filters make water circulate more efficiently.
  • Consider using a UV or Ozone generator to enhance the circulation of your pool as well as you filtration equipment.

To Conclude

You see there are many methods you can choose to control and reduce your chlorine demand.

It’s also vital that you test your water several days a week and bring us a water sample at least once a month. We’ll run it through our FREE water testing system, Alex. We’ll tell you just what your pool needs to stay clean, clear, and healthy.

Balancing your water is key, and we recommend you stay on top of your water care.
