Acidic water and its effect on your pool.  Is this important???

Acidic water not only irritates your eyes it can cause damage to your equipment.   Especially any metal pipes or copper in heaters.  Also acidic water can cause vinyl liners to stretch and may cause wrinkles.

When water is acidic it can make your skin itch, make it dry out and make your eyes red.

A little water care management and you can avoid this happening in your pool.  Take a water sample to your pool professional every 40-6 weeks to have it tested and use your test strips weekly to ensure you have adequate chlorine in the pool and that your alkalinity is balance.  You also want to ensure you have adequate calcium in your pool, that your pH is neutral and you have sufficient amounts of stabilizer in the pool.
