pH measures the level of acidity or basicity of your water. It is important to monitor it with some degree of regularity to ensure not only bather comfort but also safety. If your pH is not in the ideal range of 7.2 – 7.8 your sanitizer will be less effective and you may experience some strong smells and skin or eye irritation.
