Magna Pool Care

Magna Pool Care

Magna Pool Care is no different from any other pool. It is important to maintain the correct levels to ensure an optimum system and pool health.
The MagnaPool Hydroxinator utilises a reverse polarity electrode system to automatically generate chlorine as the primary sanitising agent. Chlorine is used to control bacteria, algae, and microorganisms.
The recommended free chlorine range for a MagnaPool is between 2.0 ppm (parts per million) and 3.0 ppm.
Maintaining an ideal pH range is very important in a Magnapool
pH is the central measure which affects the overall performance of all other elements required for optimal water quality and bather comfort. The pH balance for a MagnaPool should be maintained between 7.2 and 7.6. If pH is too high, add acid. If the pH is too low, add sodium bicarbonate (buffer)
Total Alkalinity is a measure of water balance that allows pH stability to be maintained. It is therefore just as important to maintain as pH itself.
The recommended Total Alkalinity range for MagnaPool is:

  • Concrete 100-150 ppm
  • Vinyl-lined 80-120 ppm
  • Fibreglass 80-120 ppm

If Total Alkalinity is too high, add acid. If Total Alkalinity is too low, add pH buffer.
UV Stabiliser
Cyanuric acid is used to help maintain chlorine levels in swimming pools. The ideal stabiliser level in a Magna Pool is 30 – 50ppm
Calcium Hardness is the measure of calcium compounds dissolved in the water. Calcium Hardness levels should be as low as practical to minimise the build-up of calcium deposits on the Hydroxinator cell and pool surfaces. The recommended Calcium Hardness range for MagnaPool is:

  • Concrete 100-150 ppm
  • Vinyl-lined 80-150 ppm
  • Fibreglass 80-150 ppm

If Calcium Hardness is too high, dilution with water is required
If Calcium Hardness is too low, add calcium chloride
Magnapool mineral concentration
When adding Magna Pool minerals to your pool, some cloudiness may be observed in the water until the minerals are fully dissolved. To assist the dissolving of the minerals, brush the floor of the pool with a pool broom until the minerals have dissolved. It can take up to 24 hours to fully dissolve the minerals. Mineral levels should be maintained between 3,000 ppm and 4,000 ppm. The Hydroxinator will display “Possible Low Minerals” if the mineral concentration levels fall too low (this can occur when you water is diluted by rain or water top ups)
If the mineral level is low, add MagnaPool minerals (see Adding Extra Minerals)
If the mineral level is too high, leave as is until the pool water is progressively diluted
by rain, or dilute with fresh water. We recommend Mineral levels are tested regularly by Pool Blitz.
