Beachcomber pH Minus (800 g) – pH Decreaser

SKU: RC 1449877



Product Details

pH Minus is effective for minor pH decreases of hot tub water to prevent scaling, cloudy water and eye/skin irritation and increases sanitizer efficiency. Before adjusting pH, ensure your Total Alkalinity is balanced. Maintain a proper (pH) level of 7.2 – 7.8.

  • Lowers pH in hot tub water
  • Prevents scale formation
  • Increases sanitizer efficiency
  • Increases bather comfort

  • Adjust pH to a range of 7.2 – 7.8
  • Add 6 g of pH Minus per 1000 L of water to decrease the pH by.02
  • If pH is high (above 7.8), sprinkle pH Minus into the centre of the hot tub.
  • Circulate for 30 minutes and test pH again.

pH is a measure of how acidic or basic the water is. If the water is below 7.0, the water is acidic. If the pH is above 7.0, the water is basic. Acidic water can cause pitting of the heater element and can damage the equipment. Basic water forces the calcium dissolved in the water out of solution, causing cloudy water and scaling. The pH also has a dramatic effect on the sanitizer effectiveness in the water. A high pH level results in greatly reduced sanitizer effectiveness.

Factors that can contribute to a pH change:
  • Addition of fresh water, rain, bather use, chemicals, dust, algae, neglect, improper testing, a drop in alkalinity, carry-out or splash out, evaporation and body lotions, soaps and oils.

  • Before adjusting pH, ensure Total Alkalinity is between 100-120 ppm and test pH with test strips.

What to do?
  • Increase the TA if Total Alkalinity is low, by adding Beachcomber Resist
  • Increase the pH using Beachcomber pH Plus
  • Decrease the pH using Beachcomber pH Minus
