Does rain increase pH in pool?

It’s been raining a lot lately and you’re wondering if it has affected the pH level in your pool. You know that pH is a measure of how acidic or basic water is and that it’s important to keep your pool within a certain range for the sake of your health and the health of your swim equipment. You also know that rain can be slightly acidic, so you’re worried that it might have thrown off the pH balance in your pool.

The good news is that rain shouldn’t have a significant effect on the pH level of your pool. Pool water is usually buffered against sudden changes in pH, so even if the rain is slightly acidic, it shouldn’t have a big impact. Additionally, most pools are equipped with an automated system that constantly monitors and adjusts pH levels, so even if there is a slight change, it will likely be corrected quickly.

Of course, it’s always important to test your pool water regularly to ensure that it is within the ideal range. But don’t worry too much about the rain affecting your pool’s pH levels – it’s probably not as bad as you think!
