Water Quality in your Intex Pool – Suggested Chemical Levels

First of all, note that these reccomended measurements are given with the assumption that you are using a high quality, accurate test kit.

Chlorine (FC): 10% to 15% of your Stabilizer measurement (Example: if your stabilizer level is 40, Then your FC target should be between 4 and 6. If your stabilizer level is 70, your FC target should be between 7 and 10)

CYA/Stabilizer (If you add bleach daily): Target range is 30 – 60. The more sun your pool gets, the higher you’ll want your stabilizer level.

CYA/Stabilizer (If you have an automatic saltwater chlorinator): Target range is 70 – 90.  The more sun your pool gets, the higher you’ll want your stabilizer level.

pH: Acceptable range is between 7.2 and 8.0, with ideal levels being around 7.4 or 7.5.

Alkalinity: Acceptable range is between 70 and 90

Calcium Hardness: Acceptable range is between 70 and 200
