The last few weeks have been intense!
We've had a new litter of puppies arrive, we survived the school holidays and we've been creating our new Burleigh shop!
We're so excited to welcome everyone to our Grand Opening celebrations on the 3rd & 4th November! If you can't make it, come and check out the new store beforehand, we're already open!
The fun doesn't stop at fitness: end each of your days at our #sunsetritual pool parties and unwind to the fullest with good music and better company 🙌 By courtesy of your daily workouts, cocktails will be served guilt-free 😋 #experiencevikara#3epicdays
Not just a popular baking and cleaning substance
Sodium bi-carbonate AKA baking soda is what we in the pool industry use to raise Ph and Alkalinity in pool water. Both are critical in proper water health, the surface and people swimming. When Ph is out of balance the water becomes incredibly uncomfortable to humans. Too low or high can act corrosive like both ammonia and lemon juice (which no one could possibly want to dunk their head in and open their eyes)
Alkalinity is an often overlooked aspect of chemistry. Especially in how it relates to Ph. Alkalinity levels act as a Ph buffer. Meaning it’ll stop the Ph from fluctuating as much keeping the water treatment more consistent and manageable (much like Cyunaric Acid and chlorine’s relationship)
Keep alkalinity in check by adjusting it with sodium bi-carbonate to around 100 ppm. Keep in mind this will raise the Ph so be patient and work to get the two balanced together.
who wishes their morning was starting off by this poolside? 🙋🏻♀️ snapped this on my way out of the hotel on our last morning here. sometimes mornings are the only way to capture an amazing spot without it being filled with people! this pool was definitely popular in the sicilian afternoons, with lots of guests cooling off or just lounging in the shade - myself included 😋
