What If My Pool Is Out of pH Balance?
Pool water that falls beyond the 7.2 pH into more acidic territory becomes corrosive. Acidic pool water will slowly consume metal parts in light fixtures, and can eat away at pool linings and plaster. Conversely, a pool wish substantially basic water wants to “give” electrons away, and will deposit metals and solids on underwater surfaces. These deposits are sometimes called “scale.” As pool water falls more an more out of balance (in either direction) swimmers will experience greater discomfort.
