Water treatment of your swimming pool or hot tub can be simplified.

Once a program for your pool or hot tub is established you will be able to follow its weekly regime. Using test strips will allow for weekly at home testing to verify that the water is within comfortable range for swimming.

We recommend bringing in a water sample monthly to have our team preform a comprehensive water analysis. We will then provide you with a detailed print out articulating the products and quantities needed to achieve perfectly balanced water, compared to your current water chemistry readings.

Chemical Categories

To simplify understanding different chemicals categories, we have related different colour flowers with each category. Hot Tub products have Iris flowers and Swimming Pool products have dahlias. These flowers are on the related packages.

Hot Tub chemicals are specifically formulated and tested for hot water treatment.

This is a listing of the most frequently used water care products with a description of their application. Bring a sample of your water for testing at the Gib-San Pools & Hot Tub Centre. We offer free professional water testing and application advice to our clients.

Sanitizers - Pink

By continually killing bacteria, a sanitizer keeps the water clean and safe for swimmers. This important role makes the sanitizer the most critical product in pool care. Sanitizing is the first step in the weekly pool maintenance program.

Oxidizers - Orange

Oxidizing is the second step in the weekly maintenance of a pool. Oxidizers “shock” the water and chemically destroy the organic contamination introduced by bathers and the environment. Shocking improves and extends the life of the available sanitizer (chlorine, bromine), keeping the water clear and sparkling

Algaecides - Blue

Algaecide application is the third step in weekly maintenance programs. Algae are microscopic plants that grow in or around water and can be a very troublesome aspect of pool maintenance. The cost to remove algae can be significant. Prevention is by far the best way to fight algae.

Balancers - Yellow

Balancers are essential to an effective pool maintenance program. By maintaining your pool’s alkalinity, pH and calcium you can protect your pool, the equipment and keep your sanitizer working effectively.

Purple flower in water

Water Enhancers - Purple

Enhancer products help clear cloudy water and restore the sparkle to your pool water. Enhancers will also help your filter work more efficiently by acting as a coagulant to bind tiny particles together so they are easier for your filter to remove. Borates improve swimmer comfort and help maintain chemical effectiveness.

Cleaners - Green

Cleaners remove scale, hard water deposits, scum lines and stains and extend the life of pool liners, covers, and filters. Put cleaning on your routine maintenance list and you will improve the appearance of your pool and equipment while extending its life.
