pH Made Easy

This Leslie’s Swimming Pool Supplies video will teach you all about pH, and how to make sure it stays within the proper range.

  • Test your water using a test kit or test strips.
  • Adjust your pH until it reaches 7.4 – 7.6. To raise low pH levels use Leslie’s Soda Ash and to lower pH levels apply Leslie’s Dry Acid.
  • Having a low pH can damage your pool.
  • A high pH can cause cloudy water or scale formation.
  • Test your pH by using test strips, test kits, or bring a sample into your local Leslie’s store and have it tested for free.

If you have any other questions about water testing, visit or reach out to one of our knowledgeable staff members at one of our 800 stores.
