Why is Ph Important to Your Salt Lake Pool

Turns out there are a lot of reasons that caring for the Ph of your swimming pool or spa is important. Check out the list below:
  • Chlorine, your pools sanitizer, is most effective when Ph is between 7.4 and 7.6. You should measure and check the Ph level regularly- or hire  Lifeguard Pools for regular swimming pool maintenance so we can watch it for you.
  • If the Ph of your pool drops below the 7.4 mark, the water becomes too acidic and the acidity of the water can eat away the plaster, plumbing and equipment- which of course leads to pre-mature wear of your pool.
  • If the Ph of your pool rises above 7.6, the water becomes scale-forming and can deposit scale on your plaster, plumbing and equipment- this can lead to your pool heater working less-efficiently.
  • Another important reason to monitor the Ph in your swimming pool is swimmer comfort. Ph levels that are too low or too high can lead to dry itchy skin, burning skin, eye irritation, etc.
