Test Water Levels
When your pool is out of balance, your sanitizers can be less effective. Unbalanced water can also cause skin and eye irritation, and it can even damage the pool’s surfaces, structure or equipment. Use the HTH® Multi-purpose 6-Way Test Strips to check alkalinity, pH and chlorine levels two to three times a week.
Balance Alkalinity & pH Levels
To get the most out of your sanitizer, take care to balance your pool water. First, make sure alkalinity levels are between 60 – 120 ppm. Use HTH® Alkalinity Up to raise alkalinity if needed. Next, balance the pH – ideal range is 7.2 – 7.8. Use HTH® pH Up to raise the pH and HTH® pH Down to decrease the pH.
