Benefits

Why is it important to maintain the correct pH and free Chlorine levels in your swimming pool?

pH and free chlorine

  • pH: pH is a measure of how acidic or alkaline a substance is. The ideal pH for swimming pool water is between 7.2 and 7.8. When the pH is outside of this range, it can irritate swimmers' skin and eyes, and it can also damage pool equipment.

  • Free chlorine: Free chlorine is a chemical that kills bacteria and other microorganisms in pool water. The ideal free chlorine level for swimming pool water is between 1 and 3 ppm. When the free chlorine level is too low, bacteria and other microorganisms can multiply and cause health problems for swimmers.

 

Here are some of the specific benefits of maintaining proper pH and free chlorine levels in a swimming pool:

  • Prevents algae growth: Algae can grow in pool water that has a low pH or a low free chlorine level. Algae can make pool water cloudy and unsightly, and it can also be harmful to swimmers.

  • Reduces swimmer irritation: A high pH can irritate swimmers' skin and eyes, and it can also cause swimmers to develop rashes. A high free chlorine level can also irritate swimmers' skin and eyes, and it can increase the risk of swimmer's itch.

  • Protects pool equipment: A high pH can corrode pool equipment, such as pumps and filters. A low free chlorine level can also corrode pool equipment.

  • Improves water clarity: Proper pH and free chlorine levels help to keep pool water clear and free of debris.

  • Reduces the risk of health problems: Proper pH and free chlorine levels help to reduce the risk of swimmer's ear, conjunctivitis, and other health problems.

 

By maintaining proper pH and free chlorine levels in your swimming pool, you can help to ensure that your pool water is clean, healthy, and safe for swimming.

How often do I need to check my pH and free chlorine levels?

The general guideline for how often you should check the pH and free chlorine in your swimming pool:

  • Daily: Check the pH and free chlorine once a day, especially if you use your pool frequently or if the weather is hot or humid.

  • Every other day: Check the pH and free chlorine every other day if you use your pool less frequently or if the weather is mild.

  • Once a week: Check the pH and free chlorine once a week if you use your pool very infrequently or if the weather is cool.

If you notice any changes in the pH or free chlorine levels, you should adjust them accordingly.
