It's about time to close our pool for the season, and when I say "close the pool", I mean just no longer get into the water. We don't cover it, or worry about freezing in our area. Conventional wisdom to keep the pool balanced is pH should be around 7.6, reasoning that this is the pH of the human eye. However, with no humans using the pool until spring, I was wondering if perhaps I should bring the pH down to a more neutral level (towards 7.0), since this in my mind would be easier on the pool / pool equipment?
Thanks for any input!
