pH Control

Why Use CO2?

CO2 is the safest, most reliable alternative to using muriatic acid to balance the pH level of your chlorinated water. Maintaining the desired pH level of your water is critical to ensure swimmers’ comfort and safety. CO2 replaces acid and is regulated by your automatic control system. It provides several benefits to your operation.

CO2 for pH Control from TCSCO2

Improves Overall Water Quality

The use of CO2 raises the total alkalinity of the water by combining with the water to form mild carbonic acid that creates a natural buffer against sudden drops in pH.

By consistently maintaining an optimum pH level, you will:

  • Ensure safe water conditions
  • Improve water clarity
  • Use fewer chemicals
  • Have less damage to pool surfaces

Eliminates Dangerous Acids & Saves Money

By using CO2, you eliminate the dangers and costs associated with muriatic acid:

  • No more use of acid feed pumps
  • No more dangerous fumes in the mechanical room from the mixing of chlorine vapor and acid
  • Minimizes mechanical room corrosion
  • No costs incurred for acid feed pump maintenance or tubing replacement
