The water requirements for swimming pools are prescribed in the SanPiN 2.1.2. 1188-03.

The environment is considered the most comfortable for bathers and safe for operation at a narrow pH range, namely-in the range of 7.2-7.4.

The minimum allowed for swimming pools is 7.0, the maximum is 7.6, with a deviation in both directions, the hydrogen indicator needs to be adjusted.
In particular, at a level below the norm in the water, acidic processes accelerate and corrosion effects on metal parts, seams and the lining of the pool increase. With a significant decrease in pH, the pool water strongly dries the skin and mucous membranes, up to burning in the eyes or hair loss after bathing.
When the water indicator deviates in a large direction, alkali begins to accumulate in the pool, which leads to the formation of calcium deposits, active reproduction of microorganisms, filter breakdowns, the appearance of unpleasant odors and turbidity of the water. It is unpleasant to swim in water with a high pH because of the feeling of slipperiness and irritation of the skin.
