Frequently asked questions about Mineral Springs
What is different about Mineral Springs?
Mineral Springs is specially formulated to prevent the inherent negative characteristics of chlorine generators. Many of the characteristics associated with chlorine generators (pH rise, scaling, etc.) are prevented with the addition of Beginnings and Renewal.
Will pools need to be partially drained before starting the Mineral Springs program?
We recommend that water be changed if calcium hardness and TDS levels suggest that it should be changed. We can perform a professional water analysis to determine if draining is necessary.
How soon can a person swim after the weekly addition of Renewal?
15 minutes. This allows the components of Renewal to be fully dissolved. A major benefit of Mineral Springs is that it’s not necessary to wait for the chlorine residual to drop. High chlorine residuals are only at the electrode.
How often do I add Beginnings and Renewal?
Beginnings is added only at initial and spring start-ups. Renewal is added once a week at a rate of 4 lbs. per 20,000 gallons. Renewal should be added to your pool weekly; however, in cases of large amounts of water loss that may cause the low mineral light to come on, it may be necessary to add Beginnings.
Are there any necessary adjustments to product additions or the unit itself for a pool operated during the winter?
With the cooler water temperature, the length of time the unit is operating should be decreased. Additionally, Renewal should be added once a month as opposed to weekly. The Mineral Springs unit automatically stops operating when the water temperature is below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. It might be necessary to use an alternate source for chlorination.
Should algicide be added on a regular basis?
The sanitizer generated by a Mineral Springs unit also provides algae protection by producing chlorine continuously and superchlorination at each pass through the generator. However, a chlorine generator by itself cannot overcome an existing algae bloom. It should not be necessary to add an algicide on a regular basis in most Mineral Springs pools.
Is this program suited for individuals who travel often?
The Mineral Springs system is perfect for frequent travelers. Through proper use of the system, you can leave home and forget your pool while you enjoy your trip. Even better, with Renewal you can add advanced applications for weeks ahead before leaving.
