  1. I object to this test, based on the first question, it is rediculous. “Ideal” pshhh. The Ideal pH depends on the pool, the circumstances, the water temp, the customer’s budget, the season. If I’m closing a pool in Michigan and the CH level is 180ppm because the client “takes care of their own pool” and the CYA is 150 because “the pool store said we needed some conditioner” and TA is 50 because “we don’t usually test that” then none of these answers are correct and I’m sury not adding a drop of acid to that pool, regardless of the pH reading. What’s question #2?

    1. Loizos – the ideal range for pH used in this quiz is the ideal range used in the majority of Swimming Pool Health Department Codes, The CDC’s Model Aquatic Health Code, The Certified Pool Operator Certification program, The Aquatic Facility Operator Certification program, every Test Kit manufacturer in the pool industry, and more.

      I could go into this deeper with you if you wish, but you lost me at “the customer’s budget” determines the ideal range for pH. I also don’t understand why in the example you gave why you wouldn’t just balance the water correctly by lowering the CyA and then bringing the CH, TA, and pH all into the Ideal range resulting in an LSI that is balanced prior to winterizing.
