    Will Ozonator effect pH?

    I have an indoor pool, and bought an Ozonator (UV lamp type) off ebay a while back, and have not got around to hooking it up yet with the new roof / building lights (36 vapor tite t8 florescent fixtures) , and solar panel project. Which leads to this question, do you think it will have any effect on pool pH?, I ask because currently my pH is VERY stable, but slowly drifts over time (a gallon of acid will last me 2-3 years), its output is about 10 grams per day.

    thanks Ike

    Ozone provides some aeration. How much depends on the details of your ozone system, but there is always a little. So I would expect it to cause some PH drift. How big an issue that is will also depend on your TA level.
