The pH is one of the most important factors in pool water balance and it should be tested and corrected at least every week. pH is the measure of how acid/ alkaline the swimming pool water is.

No wonder that the ideal pH for your pool is just that – 7.2 , and should be kept within the range of 7.0-7.6 .
