Why pH Matters
Welcome to Water Care Wednesdays! As a pool or spa owner, it is essential to maintain a balanced pH level in your water to ensure that it stays clean and healthy. pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a substance, and a balanced pH level in a pool or spa is essential for making you water clean, clear, and safe.
- Firstly, maintaining a balanced pH level in a pool or spa prevents skin and eye irritation. If the pH level is too high or too low, it can cause redness and itchiness.
- Secondly, a balanced pH level protects the pool or spa equipment from damage. If the pH level is too low, it can cause corrosion and damage to the equipment, such as the heater and pump. If the pH level is too high, it can cause scaling and mineral buildup on the surfaces and equipment.
- Lastly, a balanced pH level ensures that the sanitizers used to keep the water clean and healthy are effective. If the pH level is too high, the sanitizers will not work effectively, which can lead to bacterial growth and other problems. If the pH level is too low, the sanitizers can be too harsh and cause skin and eye irritation.
How to Balance pH
To maintain a balanced pH level in a pool or spa, it is essential to test the water regularly and adjust the pH level as needed. Use a liquid test kit to measure the pH level, and add pH increaser or pH decreaser to balance it accordingly. If the pH level is dropping quickly, it may be a sign that the alkalinity is low, in which case alkalinity increaser can be used to balance the water.
In conclusion, maintaining a balanced pH level is crucial to keep your pool or spa clean, healthy, and safe. Make sure to test the water regularly and adjust the pH level as needed to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable pool or spa experience.
