About This Item

Formulated to lower the pH of your swimming pool water, these water-balancing pods make dosing quick and easy; you can even add them directly to the pool water or skimmer. Best of all, this pH increaser is also compatible with salt water systems. Maintaining pH in the proper range will allow your sanitizer to work more effectively, which can help to prevent equipment corrosion, reduce cloudy water and scale, reduce eye irritation and reduce skin dryness. Help reduce pH drift by testing the total alkalinity each week and maintaining it between 60 and 120ppm. TO USE: First, test the pH of the water every time you apply sanitizer. Be sure the pump is running. If the pH is high, lower it according to the directions on the HTH® Pre-measured Water Soluble Pods pH Down label. Always add the pods with the pump running. If adding a pod directly to the skimmer, add only one pod at time and allow it to dissolve completely before adding more. If adding directly to pool water, add the appropriate number of pods spread evenly around the pool’s deep end with the circulation system running. Disperse any undissolved chemical from the bottom of the pool with a pool brush until the chemical is completely dissolved. The pods should be distributed evenly around the deep end and should not be concentrated in one place. Add the appropriate number of pods to lower and maintain the pH between 7.2 and 7.8.

2. Determine Number of Pods
