During the chlorination process, the PH level must be between 7 and 7.8. Outside these values, chlorination loses efficacy and can be aggressive to the skin and mucous membranes

Ph level: 

pH regulation is an essential factor in the pool since an unadjusted level of pH (less than 7 or more than 8) is harmful to the skin and eyes of bathers.

The pH is a measure of the degree of acidity, on a scale from 0 to 14. Values ​​below 7 indicate acidity and those above 8 alkalinities. For the pool to have the correct PH, it must be maintained between 7 and 7.8. To evaluate the pH index we use water analysis equipment.
