How to Automatically pH Balance Your Pool

Posted by Joe On October 24th

Has your child ever gotten out of the pool and complained that their eyes sting badly?

Reduce Stinging Eyes with an automatic pH Controller

This is the first of 8 Automatic Swimming Pool Products that Make Life Easier which can be downloaded as a free guide.

The cause of this problem is most likely that your swimming pool’s chemistry is out of whack.

Here’s how to fix the problem and get your little ones back in the pool, enjoying life once again!

In order to keep your pool healthy and beautiful, you need to ensure that the pH levels remain balanced. But, what exactly is pH?

The letters pH actually stand for ‘potential of hydrogen’(H), which is present in water (H20) and all organic compounds. But, pH isn’t something you can see or feel. It is a measure of acidity and alkalinity.

The pH levels in your pool determine how acidic or alkaline the water is at any specific time. Fluctuations in your pool’s pH level can cause things like cloudy water, irritated eyes, corrosion of pool equipment, and damaging calcium scale buildup. This buildup can disfigure your pool and clog the filter. pH levels that are too high can also can reduce the effectiveness of chlorine.

IntellipH pH Controller

IntellipH™ pH Controller

So, in order to keep your pool safe for swimming, it’s important to monitor pH levels daily. Pool water should be slightly alkaline or neutral. (On the pH scale, this means at seven or slightly above.)

To balance your pool’s PH level, you have to become a bit of a chemist. Because acids and bases neutralize each other, you need an acid to lower the PH or a base to raise it If it is low, you need a base to raise it.

Sound like a royal pain? It kind of is. So, to make your life easier, Pentair Water Pool and Spa has put out a wonderful product that will do all of this for you! It is called IntellipH®.

I was just looking over our online “eBook” library and I have to say —

Pool Construction - Pool Safety - Fort Myers - Naples Florida

WOW!  We have got quite the library of helpful information – from pool service & pool safety tips to pool renovation ideas to creating the ‘ultimate outdoor environment’ it’s in there!

Over the years, I’ve met with thousands of families, parents, and couples who have asked such wonderful questions.

I’ve helped dozens in times of need turn what was a not-so-good situation (a dark green, moldy, mildew infested pool, for example) into a dream outdoor experience…

But one of the most powerful things we started doing a few years ago (A BIG thank you to my friends and Internet Marketers at ISG!) was creating helpful eBooks that have truly empowered so many people.

With everything we create, we try to:

  • thoroughly answer the questions we receive,
  • provide thoughtful direction – hints and tips on creating and maintaining the best environment, and
  • assure you’re learning from all of the lessons we’ve learned over the years!

If you’ve met me, or my team, you know we want nothing more than the safest, happiest, and most fun outdoor environment for you, your family and friends.  That’s our mission! 😉

Please let me know how you think we’re doing, OR if you have any questions or ideas on what we can help you with, please send them to us too, either by commenting below, or Contacting Us on our website!
