pH level in Swimming Pool

Having a good swimming pool pH level is essential in making sure that all of the equipment and chemicals used in your pool are doing their job correctly. That's why it's so important to test the pH levels at least once a week. Even in the off-season you'll want to keep an eye on it, because as an open water system, you'll have nasty algae growth, fungus, bacteria and the like.

It's not uncommon for your pool pH level to raise or fall depending on the type of chemicals used. What is important is to know exactly what steps to take in order to get it back into optimal range depending on if it's too high or too low.

Swimming pool pH is a measurement of acid to alkaline ratio. At 7.0, your pool water is neutral, above that number and it becomes alkaline, while below it means your pool is too acidic. The most desirable range we'd like to keep our pool pH level at is between 7.2 and 7.6. It's in this range that our equipment and chemicals can function to the best of their ability. - We accept credit cards via PayPal, no PayPal account is required
