Symptoms of low pH include skin and eye irritation, excessive sanitizer use and, more seriously, corrosion of the pumps and heater and pitting or etching on the pool or spa surface.
The ideal pool or swim spa pH levels are between 7.2 – 7.6, when using chlorine or bromine, and 7.0 - 7.4 when using the Aquablanc O2 Easy system.
The correct pH level promotes bather comfort, ensures optimal chemical efficiency and protection of pool plant equipment.
- Pre-dissolve the product in a clean plastic container at a maximum rate of 100g of product per 2.2 gallons (10lts) of clean warm water. Stir well to ensure product is fully dissolved. Carefully add the resulting solution to the pool whilst the pump(s) are turned “on”, preferably near to the water inlets to aid distribution.
- After a minimum of 8 hours, re-check the pH level and if necessary repeat the treatment until the ideal pH is established.
- Several doses may be required.
