To make the most of your swimming pool and avoid higher pool maintenance costs, pay close attention to pool water pH. The minimum pH in pool water is 7.2ppm and the maximum is 7.8 ppm, with the idea range of pH in pool water between 7.4-7.6. Balancing your pH regularly ensures less acidic and corrosive conditions. It allows your chlorine to burn more effectively and your equipment lasts longer.
Use our granular pH Down to lower the pH level of your pool or spa! Maintaining a proper pH level in your pool/spa water is vital for keeping the water clean and safe for use. If your pH level is too high, it can also reduce the effectiveness of the chlorine causing another problem entirely. Many variables affect the pH level in your water. Pool usage, rain, animal droppings, etc all have an effect on your waters pH level. This is why it is important to test a minimum of every 3 - 4 days.

TO RAISE pH LEVEL:
Test water to calculate how much pH Down is necessary
Mix pH Down with water and add to the pool
Adding pH Down will help raise your pH level to land in the desired range. It is best that you add a little bit at a time and then test your pH level accordingly. Do this until you have reached the desired amount.
Add 100 g of AQUA COASTAL pH DOWN for each 10,000 L of pool water when pH rises above 7.8. Test every 2 hours. Repeat dose and procedure until a pH of 7.2 to 7.8 is reached.
Sprinkle on the surface of the water. When, after superchlorination of pool water, the chlorine count is high, dissolve in water first. The degree of acidity or alkalinity of the water is important. A high pH over 7.8, causes scaling and decreases the efficiency of chlorine. A low pH under 7.2, causes corrosion of the metal content in pool water and of metal equipment in contact with pool water (in particular where more than one metal is present) and increases the possibility of irritation to the nose, throat and eyes of bathers. The pH is especially important when pool water is recirculated through a heater. The ideal pH is 7.2 to 7.8. The pH level should always be adjusted before adding chlorine to the pool water. 10,000 L is approximately 2,200 Imp. gal. 1 oz is equivalent to approximately 30 g.
