In The Swim's pH Increaser will help raise your pH and Total Alkalinity levels with half the hassle. With an active ingredient of sodium carbonate, or commonly known as soda ash, In The Swim Pool pH Increaser makes for easy dosing and adding to your pool's water. When pool pH gets low, your pool water becomes acidic causing irritation to swimmers and damages the pool equipment. Granular pool pH increaser can help by stabilizing the pool pH and ensuring that your pool water is comfortable and safe for its occupants. More importantly, maintaining a balanced pH by effectively administering In the Swim pH Increaser also ensures that your pool water is refreshing and enjoyable on even the hottest summer day.

Raising Pool pH for Balanced Water

The pH level of your pool water is a vital element of your pool's overall water chemistry and pool maintenance. pH measures how acidic or basic the water is on a scale of zero to 14, with the ideal pH for swimming pools falling in the range of 7.2 to 7.6. When the pH level of your pool falls below 7.2, the water becomes acidic which can cause eye and skin irritation, corrosion of metal fixtures in pool equipment such as filters, pumps and heaters, dissipation of chlorine, etching of plaster walls, unsightly pool surface stains, and other problems.

To prevent low pH problems from occurring, regularly test your pool water to keep an eye on the pH level of your pool. Whenever the pH level drops below 7.2, simply add pH increaser soda ash to raise the pH level back into the 7.4 - 7.6 range. Your chlorine sanitizer will be more stable and able to work more effectively at killing bacteria and controlling algae. Other water balance parameters will become more stable as well. It's best to use In The Swim pH Increaser when you notice pH levels start to drop to prevent potential damage that's caused from having acidic pool water or low pH.

Raising Total Alkalinity

Depending on the size of your pool you will need to carefully measure pool pH increaser sodium carbonate in order to accurately and effectively increase your pool pH and alkalinity levels. Total Alkalinity measures all the hydroxides, carbonates and alkaline in pool and spa water. Your Total Alkalinity or (TA) levels should be in the 80 - 120 ppm range for balanced water. Total Alkalinity strongly influences your pH level and acts as a buffer to help it from fluctuating. So if the pool or spa pH is off, be sure to check and balance the alkalinity first so you can establish a balanced pH level in the water.

Common Questions:

What does pH Increaser affect?

In The Swim pH Increaser raises your pH and Total Alkalinity levels in your pool water

How do I raise the pH level in my pool? How much pH Increaser should I add to my pool?

If pH is below 7.2, add pH Increaser at the rate of 1 lb. per 10,000 gallons of pool water to raise the pH level in the pool. Dissolve pH increaser in a bucket of water, mix thoroughly, and pour solution into the pool while walking along the perimeter. Do not add more than 4 lbs. of pH increaser per 10,000 gallons at any one time.

How long does it take for pH increaser to work in pools?

After adding pH increaser, allow the water to circulate for three to four hours, recheck pH, and repeat treatment as necessary until pH is between 7.4 - 7.6.
