    pH Question

    I have had my pool for three years and my pH is consistently at 7.2. I've never adjusted it.

    In the spirit of not adding any to my water unless it's ABSOLUTELY necessary...can you really raise the pH by having the return ripple the surface of the water or would I need something more forceful like a fountain or waterfall?

    Thanks!

    More aeration = faster pH rise. Having the return ripple will have an effect but it will be slow.

    I would leave it alone.....you're in a good spot.
