    I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, but the "pH" is not defined 2/3 of the way down. Most people at TFP should understand this, but... some will not.

    Good point. It stands for "power of Hydrogen" or "potential Hydrogen", and is a measurement of the degree of acidity or basicity of the water where a lower number is more acidic and a higher number is more basic. It is a logarithmic scale so small changes are actually big effects which is why the recommended range is usually 7.2 to 7.8 for most pools.
