Add Muriatic Acid. Always check your pool chemistry after changing the pH.

Rain if it is acidic can lower the pH of a swimming pool.

Muriatic Acid lowers the pH level in a pool.

You can lower the PH level by using this stuff called PH Down. Go to a local pool store and ask about it.

raising the pH level of the swimming poolThe recommended pH-range for a swimming pool is between 7.2 and 7.8. To raise or lower pH, alkali such as sodium carbonate (soda ash) or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) will added to the water. thanks hope it helps you heaps!!

No. You can raise the PH level in your pool with Borax. I use it.

pH range for swimming pools is normally between 7.2 and 7.6

Muriatic acid will not lower the Harness(calcium chloride)level in a swimming pool. Dilution is the only effective method to lower the calcium hardness level. Muriatic acid is used to lower the pH and total alkalinity of pool water.

No it will raise the pH level. You would use it if your pool was too acidic.

Muriatic Acid....Be real careful though.

To adjust pH and/or lower alkalinity.

Their eyes will burn and they could get blisters. You need to raise the PH level as soon as possible.

The Ph of a swimming pool should be between 7.2 - 7.6

The water will irritate your skin.

Use muriatic acid to lower your pH. Be mindful of your alkalinity also as the muriatic acid will lower it too. You need both (actually everything in balance) pH 7.2-7.8 Alk 80-120

You can add soda ash (sodium carbonate), sold as pH Increaser,

In almost all cases, swimming pool water pH levels should be between 7.0 and 8.0.A closer range of 7.2 - 7.6 is often recommended.

Baking soda will almost certainly raise the pH level in a pool.

You have to know what you are doing. The addition of muriatic acid lowers the pH and total alkalinity in swimming pools.
