Rolachem RP9 Automatic Control System
Swimming pools are designed to give you an endearing calmness. But what if they result in irritating skin and burning eyes? If you, your guests, or your loved ones have had such complaints right after using your swimming pool, there is a high chance you have a high pH level problem in your pool water.
You can use an intelligent solution like the Rolachem RP9, which automatically measures & maintains the pH levels in the pool. Or, you can try some of the following methods to help maintain the balance.
Test the pool for its pH level. Even before you get into testing, if you have been experiencing any of these issues with the swimming pool, there is a very high probability it has high pH levels:
The ideal pH scale should be between 7.2 and 7.6. If the water is at 7, it is considered neutral. The moment the pH level passes 8, people using the pool will start experiencing skin irritation.
First and foremost – you should get a test kit with fresh reagents from a verified seller. This will help you determine the pH level and ensure that you use the right chemicals for fixing it in the right quantities. Test the pH level before you use any of these chemicals. That way, after proper application, you can retest and see the difference of the results. You can use Blue Connect for testing the pH level, temperature & salinity all at once. It also recommends the required amount of chemicals.
Use dry acid or liquid acid to control the pH level in the pool:
Here are some health practices you can adopt to mitigate the risk of high pH levels:
If you find it too arduous to maintain the pH levels, use a more innovative solution like Rolachem RC1, which semi-automatically adds a suitable amount of acid to keep a balanced pool.
Swimming pools with high pH levels are common and can be managed with dry or liquid acid. Ensure you are using quality testing tools, cleaning equipment, and maintenance devices to ensure the maintenance is adequate and total alkalinity levels do not disrupt the pH level of your pool.
