One of the most frequently asked questions here at Aegean Pools is, “How do I measure that dosage of (insert chemical name here)? On almost every pool we build we install a D.E. Filter and with this filter we give the new pool owner a D.E. Scoop, the scoop can be either orange or blue in color. This scoop is designed to hold one pound of D.E., however, since every product has a different specific gravity the weight of each product the scoop will hold will be different. So, we created a D.E. Scoop Conversion Chart! This chart converts different products into a specific weight in a level D.E. Scoop. If you don’t have a D.E. Scoop we have them in stock at Aegean Pools Retail Store.
A few words of caution:
NEVER mix different chemicals together in the same container.
NEVER add granular chlorine directly to the pool. Always mix it in a 5 gallon bucket of water then pour it in to the pool.
ALWAYS rinse the D.E. Scoop thoroughly and dry it before adding a different chemical to the D.E. Scoop.
SAFTEY FIRST WHEN DEALING WITH POOL CHEMICALS!
