What Are The Best Pool pH Levels?

  • 7.5 is the best pH level for water in a swimming pool.
  • 7.4 - 7.6 is an acceptable level for pH readings.
  • Maintaining an alkalinity reading between 80-120 ppm will help reduce changes in pH, as these can lead to scaling and corrosion.

Tip: If you are not able to regularly maintain your pool's chemical balance, contact a pool cleaning service to do it for you.
