    Ph Level

    I have two quick questions. While water testing a minute ago, I found my PH was in the 8.2 range.

    1st Question: Would my teenage daughter and her friend covered in sunblock or tanning lotion raise PH?

    2nd Question: Does Muriatic Acid go bad or weaken? I have had some since last year and it has been stored in my basement.

    As always, thanks for the help!

    Re: Ph Level

    People swimming can cause the PH to go up because they cause aeration. Neither sun block or tanning lotion will raise PH.

    Muriatic acid will last a very long time, certainly way more than a year.
