Thread: aerating the pool

    aerating the pool

    Well I've been soaking in all this TFP information several hours a day which is fantastic and every now & then when adding chemicals or treating the pool for something, I see the term "then aerate" your pool. BUT it never says how to do that. Even in the definition of terms page that word isn't there.

    Now I have 3 aerators on the back side of my pool. Basically all they are....are little sprayers that are turned on with the water feature valve and I can adjust the spray from small to large into the pool.

    Is this what they talking about?

    If not how do you aerate a pool?

    Re: aerating the pool

    Hi, Martin.....that's exactly right. Getting the water infused with some air particles, whether it is via aeration bubblers, waterfalls, etc. Some pools don't have any water features so there are some pics on the site of improvised aeration devices that members have made and attached to the pool return lines.

    Usually you only need to aerate if trying to raise PH and/or going through the procedure of adjusting TA.

    Are you having an issue with either one of those?

    Thanks Dan.

    Yes I have a thread in this same forum category that's been running now for about 3 or 4 days now & I've been very busy scouring this website to learn AND doing a lot of things to correct my problem and get my pool balanced correctly. I'm fixing to update that thread right now so check it in a few minutes.

    thx

    If you could try to keep everything under the same thread so it's easier for people to follow and help you out.

    Re: aerating the pool

    Yeah I know but this was a totally different question that I had that really didn't pertain to my ongoing thread so that's why I did it here.

    That's always a hard choice when you change subjects but the default best choice is to keep it under your old thread. All of us can then get any background info that may be helpful without looking at your old thread (which many of us wouldn't know is there)

    Re: aerating the pool

    A few things aerate the pool. Those sprayers will, as will waterfalls, spill over spas, hot tub jets, even SWG's add an aeration effect. Basically anything that agitates the water, even swimmers.
