Fibre Tech pH Control
pH, which is the measure of acidity or alkalinity of the water, is determined by your test kit. A proper pH reading is 7.2-7.6.
Ideally, your pool should be maintained at the lower level of 7.2.
|After testing the water, if the pH is too high (above 7.6):
|To correct this condition, a pH decreaser: liquid muriatic acid and granular sodium bisulfate.
This must be pre-dissolved in a bucket of water before being added to the pool
|If the pH is too low (below 7.2):
||To correct this condition, a pH increaser is added directly to the water. Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) is less expensive and easier to use than soda ash.|
NOTE: If your pH is low, test the alkalinity before adjusting the water’s pH.
If the alkalinity is low, adjust this first and then retest pH the following day.
