There are many different chemical levels when it comes to balancing your pool or spa, but the pH is overall the most important as it controls the effectiveness of all other levels.
To maintain a perfect pH the key is to test the pool levels once a week. pH is something that changes quite regularly so if you can test twice a week, even better. Adjusting the pH is a matter of using pH increasers/decreasers. The amounts needed will be based on how far out the pH of your water is and the volume of water in your pool. Always read the label and instructions carefully for you to not overdose or under dose your pool.
