The key to achieving the perfect pH balance for pool maintenance lies in embracing an organic approach. A well-maintained pool isn’t just about crystal-clear water; it’s also about the health and safety of swimmers. 

      We will explore the benefits of organic pH control in pools and why you should consider PoolSmith Technologies‘ organic approach to pool pH maintenance.

      Let’s start by reviewing what pH levels mean in pool maintenance. The pH scale measures acidity or alkalinity, and pools should ideally maintain a pH between 7.2 and 7.6 for swimmer comfort and equipment longevity.


      Challenges of Conventional pH Control

      Traditional pool maintenance relies heavily on chemicals to maintain pH balance. These chemicals can have negative consequences:

      • Fluctuating pH levels – Conventional acids/bases provide a quick fix but pH bounces back requiring frequent monitoring and adjustment.
      • Added maintenance – More time and effort spent testing, balancing, and manipulating water chemistry.
      • Scaling and corrosion – Improper pH can lead to mineral buildup and corrosion of pool surfaces and equipment.
      • Skin/eye irritation – Low or high pH can cause red eyes or dry skin for swimmers.
      • Degraded water quality – Overuse of chemicals leads to loss of clarity and potential algae growth.
      • Safety issues – Mishandling of hazardous acidic or alkaline chemicals presents risks.
      • Environmental impact – Harsh conventional chemicals get discharged and can alter groundwater pH.
      • Cost – The purchase and use of conventional pH chemicals can become expensive over time.
      • Difficulty balancing other factors – Adjusting pH with chemicals often throws off total alkalinity and hardness levels.


      Non-Toxic Alternatives You Can Use

      Organic alternatives use natural methods and substances that won’t harm the environment or swimmers. Here are organic options you can use to maintain pH levels in your pool:

      • Baking Soda: Utilize household baking soda as your secret weapon for gentle pH stabilization. Sprinkle it into the pool, and it will gradually adjust the pH.
      • White Vinegar: Unconventional but effective, white vinegar can lower high pH levels without harming your pool or swimmers.
      • Lemon juice: Lemon juice is a natural and eco-friendly alternative to muriatic acid that can be used to lower the pH of your pool. 
      • Organic pH Control System: By injecting small quantities of recycled CO2 into your pool, Organic pH employs a wholly organic process to generate a singular, non-toxic acid known as carbonic acid. This process eliminates the need for handling, mixing, or dispensing.

      Connect with PoolSmith Technologies to install your CO2 system.


      Benefits of Organic pH Control

      • Healthier Swimmers: These methods are gentle on the skin and eyes, enhancing the safety and enjoyment of your pool.
      • Eco-Friendly: You contribute to a healthier environment by avoiding harsh chemicals that could harm aquatic life.
      • Cost-Efficient: Organic methods are often more budget-friendly in the long run, reducing the need for frequent maintenance and chemical purchases.
      • Sustainability: Promote environmentally responsible living by embracing organic pH control practices.
      • Reduced Maintenance: Spend less time adjusting pH levels and more time enjoying your pool.
