pH Plus Balancer

poolife® pH Plus balancer raises the pH of swimming pool water. The ideal pH range is 7.2-7.6. Maintaining a pH level below 7.2 keeps your sanitizer from working effectively and can cause equipment corrosion, eye irritation and skin discomfort.

  • Use convenient dosage chart on product label.
  • Always adjust total alkalinity prior to adjusting pH.

Maintaining a pH level above 7.6 keeps your sanitizer from working effectively and can cause scale, eye irritation and skin discomfort. This product also lowers the total alkalinity of swimming pool water.

Useful Tips

  • Test pH frequently and add this product if pH is above 7.6.
  • Use convenient dosage chart on product label.
  • Always adjust total alkalinity prior to adjusting pH.

Calcium Plus

poolife® Calcium Plus raises the calcium hardness of swimming pool water. The ideal calcium hardness range is 200-500ppm. Maintaining calcium hardness below 200ppm may cause corrosion of metal and plaster surfaces.
Useful Tips

  • Test calcium hardness monthly and add this product if calcium hardness is below 200ppm.
  • Use convenient dosage chart on product label.
  • If a large amount of poolife® Calcium Plus is required (more than a 50 ppm addition), add in 1/3 increments, allowing 4-6 hours between additions.

  • Use convenient dosage chart on product label.

Back to Blue

If you are experiencing an algae bloom, which has turned your pool green, the poolife® Back to Blue® shock system can turn your pool sparkling blue again. This two-part system destroys the bacteria and algae that have taken over your pool and then makes it easy to vacuum out. At the start of the season, or if an algae bloom occurs during the season, the pool can be treated and returned to its clear blue appearance within 24 hours by using poolife® Back to Blue® I and poolife® Back to Blue® II as part of the poolife® Back to Blue® shock system.

Useful Tips

  • All-in-one: chlorinates, shocks and kills algae
  • Restores water clarity.
  • Use only with filters that allow vacuuming to waste (bypass filter).
