The pH level indicates how acidic or
alkaline the water is at any given time. A pH
level of 7 means that water is neutral; above 7
means the water is alkaline, while below 7
indicates acidity. You should aim for a pH level
of between 7 and 7.8. If the water pH is higher
than 8, anyone who swims in the pool is at risk of
skin rashes, while a pH of lower than 7 can sting
the swimmers' eyes, and even cause a sore
throat. When the pH or alkalinity too high you
might see calcium in high contents causing scale
deposits. Also, you might get Cloudy or Dull
Water. Stains and rust might accumulate
when the pH is unbalanced too.
