pH Up 5kg – Store pick up ONLY
Chemical Type: pH Increaser
Chemical Base: Soda Ash
pH up (increaser) is a dry granulated product that is used to increase the pH in acidic pools. The recommended range for pH in spa pool water is 7.2 – 7.8. Chlorine is most effective at controlling bacteria and algae when pH level is within the recommended range. This also saves on chlorine usage.
When the reading is below 7.2 the water is acidic and above 7.8 the water is alkaline. Acidic water is corrosive to your spa pool surface and equipment. It will etch a plaster and fibreglass pool surface, cause skin, eyes, and nose irritations to bathers. When left untreated for long periods, this is when the real damage occurs to the pump and filtration equipment.
Dosage: Rate will depend on the pH and Total Alkalinity level. Check the label or consult your local Pool Professional
