pH Is A Must
by: Anonymous

Not entirely sure what is meant by you aren't to check Alkalinity and pH if Chlorine is high. I run a salt water pool using a Cat Controller and Aqua Rite combination system. This allows me to maintain an ORP of 700 in my pool and 800 in my Spa.

Now I super Chlorinate after high usage and naturally if Pseudomanas or Coliform come back positive on a health board test. With Pseudomonas I super Chlorinate to levels of 50+ ppm and have no difficulty maintaining a ph of 7.2, Alkalinity of 100 and Hardness of 200.

The simple fact is, that if your pH is not maintained at levels between 7.0 and 7.6 then your Chlorine becomes ineffective. In other words pH is a must if you expect to kill bacteria.

So if you have done regular monitoring and find your levels are as I mentioned then you shouldn't notice any major changes when super chlorinating, at least I don't.

Good luck.
