“Swimming pool temperature impacts the water chemistry in a big way. This article will outline a few reasons why.
Pool Temperature and Water Quality
Let’s divide “water chemistry” into two different categories, and start with water quality:
Warmer water means more chlorine demand. This is not due to sunlight degradation of chlorine, though summertime does mean more hours of direct sunlight hitting an outdoor pool. The real reasons for higher chlorine demand are because both living and non-living contaminants are more prevalent in warmer water. Algae and bacteria, for instance, are living contaminants that chlorine must kill (sanitization). Warmer water means those microorganisms can reproduce more rapidly, therefore problems like algae are more prevalent in the summertime. If you have a pool, you have probably already know this…” – Orenda Technologies
