PH Degrees and Alkaline in Your Pool

It runs on a reverse scale therefore 1ppm is large and 14ppm is low (And fun fact PPM stands for Parts Per Million).
water chemistry and ph levels
7ppm is considered baseline for PH. However, you would like to keep your water only slightly above baseline to protect against that algae from growing! The ideal ph level range to get a pool or spa is from 7.2ppm to 7.8ppm, but remember that amounts may fluctuate if you’ve got a fiberglass pool as opposed to the conventional gunnite.

So we spoke about contamination to you last week and that I know you are super eager to learn about another significant factor of swimming chemistry.

We get to Alkalinity which is what supports the PH and keeps it. Fundamentally do your very best to keep it 100ppm. 100 is basically your Goldilocks level. It is simply perfect.
And that’s only a little refresher in pool chemistry 101 from your friends at Pool Marketer.

The acidity or PH amounts of water are another significant element when balancing and testing your pool water. Because if your PH is off balance it may lead to skin irritation or side effects that are negative, PH can be crucial.
