How do I lower my ph level? I tested it myself and its a darker red then it even shows on the scale. My fiancé went go Canadian Tire and they said they’ve never herd of thatâ?¦ they told him I must have read it wrong and got him to buy stuff to higher the ph levelâ?¦ I tested the water again today and as I read before its higher than the scale showsâ?¦ is that even safe for the kids to be in as they have been all day yesterday and today.


To power the pH use dry acid. The dark red coloration would indicate a higher than acceptable pH level which can cause skin and eye irritation as well as make your sanitizer less effective.
