Your pool water turned green immediately after adding pH Plus because the chemical had increased the pH level to high. You may need to adjust the alkalinity levels of the water using another pool chemical such as pH Minus of pH Alkalinity Plus.
Test the water, then adjust your Ph to about 7.2. Then chlorinate.
Adjust alkalinity first
Well because rain is polluted water and the chlorine in the pool has a different pH level than the polluted water. Therefore, when it rains, the polluted water and the chlorine water combine and make a whole different solution or different pH level.
Muriatic Acid lowers the pH level in a pool.
Add Muriatic acid to the water. CAREFULLY
Rain-water is fresh so will try to sit on top of the denser brine, not sink, if left alone, but the pool use and the filters will mix the water and the salinity overall will fall. Adjust the water-level if necessary, test the salinity, pH etc, and adjust the chemicals as required.
The water will irritate your skin.
You can check the water Ph level in a pool by using specially designed test strips. You can purchase these strips at most major retail chains such as Walmart, Target, or Sears.
The salt itself in a salt water pool can cause itching
After your pool is clear again, test the Ph of the water. You can purchase a test kit at your local pool or home and garden supply store. When the Ph of the water is at a safe level, you can dive in.
pH range for swimming pools is normally between 7.2 and 7.6
pH measures the level of acidity or basicity in the water. Should be 7.2-7.8
No. You can raise the PH level in your pool with Borax. I use it.
The proper pH level is 7.2-7.5
You can lower the PH level by using this stuff called PH Down. Go to a local pool store and ask about it.
You can add powdered lime or wood ash, depending on how you're trying to adjust it.
No it will raise the pH level. You would use it if your pool was too acidic.
Can't beat baking soda!
You just have to watch you pH and alkalinity levels and adjust at least weekly.
pH is the comfort level of the water. The pH level of water ranges from 0-14. 7 being neutral. Too high pH and the chlorine becomes less active, too low pH and the water is acidic. Keep your pH between 7.6-7.8 and you'll be fine.Good luckRobert
Swimming pool buffer is a type of chemical treatment used to adjust the pH balance of the water. It helps to maintain proper water conditions which are ideal for swimming.
To shock the pool, about a gallon. To just chlorinate, a quarter gallon, then measure the chlorine level with an OTO test kit. Keep the chlorine level between 1-3 PPM, and the pH at 7.2. You can adjust pH with plain old baking soda if the pH is too low, or add a little muriatic acid if the pH is too high.
The source of your water that you add into the pool will increase the PH level. Also the chemicals you might be using will also do the same thing. Any chemical that may have Sodium in it will increase the level.
