We recommend testing and balancing your pH once a week to once a fortnight.
The pH reading tells us whether the water is acidic or alkaline and incorrect levels may cause itchy skin and red eyes. The pH level ranges from 0 to 14, with 7.0 being neutral. Values below 7.0 are acidic.
- The Australian Standard for pool water is 7.0 to 7.8 with 7.2 to 7.6 recommended.
- Naked Pools recommends 7.2 to 7.4 for fibreglass and vinyl pools and 7.4 to 7.6 for concrete and tiled pools.
