The pH balance in your pool tells you how much (or how little) acidity is in your pool. If you are younger or if you swim in public pools very much, you will recall the smell of chlorine and how harsh it could be if used in too high a quantity.
Our bodies’ biology point to 7.4 being the perfect pH level. If your pH level goes lower, you will find it to be more painful and cause more burning. Above the 7.4 level, you begin to suffer from dried skin and noses. Once you perform your pool chemistry test, simply add either your pH increaser or your pH decreaser depending on what you need.
Our experience has shown that the most accurate information is gathered using the “Taylor Technologies Complete Test Kit.” Consider an investment in the range of $70-$100 as being monies well invested and well spent – especially when it comes to your children.
