Reading the intellichlor manual online I noticed this paragraph...
"pH produced by IntelliChlor Electronic Chlorine Generator is close to Neutral pH. However, other
factors usually cause the pH of the pool water to rise. Therefore, the pH in a pool chlorinated by
IntelliChlor tends to stabilize at approximately 7.8. This is within APSP standards. If the pool pH rises
above 7.8, have a pool professional test the pool water to see if other factors such as high Calcium
Hardness or Total Alkalinity are the cause and then balance accordingly."
This seems blatently un-true to me... I know if I just ignore my pH, it'll go WAY above 7.8... how can they say this?
