Customer Questions & Answers

how fast does the ph up work? minutes, hours?

Added 3 lbs of ph up 2 hrs ago, but still have a low reading.
Asked by: frustratedVA
To expand on Pool Time Support's question, I'm going to tell you something neither he/she nor Home Depot wants you to know. If your Total Alkalinity is low buy baking soda. Despite the fancy ingredient name on the Pool Time bucket, it is chemically the SAME thing. You can buy baking soda for about 1/2 the price at your local $1 store. I just found this info put myself. And if you live in a state which doesn't tax food, you don't pay sales tax on it.

Is this stronger than using baking soda?

Asked by: don
This is sodium carbonate (soda ash) and is MUCH better at raising PH than is Sodium Bicarbonte (baking soda) which is best at raising alkalinity. That said, Soda ash will raise alkalinity somewhat, just as Baking soda will raise pH somewhat but it's better to use the product specific to your pool's needs. This is a fair price at Home Depot and about half price of Leslie's. However, soda ash can be purchased in larger quantities even more cheaply from various industrial suppliers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PoolTime ph up This has worked wonders for our pool every year. I would highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works effectively! The PH level of your pool water must be within range for the chlorine and algaecide to work correctly. If the PH is too high or low you'll be using far more chemicals than necessary and wasting money. I purchased more of PH UP at Home Depot for exactly half of what my local pool store sells it for. Learned my lesson, buy at Depot!
