You can make a comparison between human bodies and pools in regard to the quantity of water contained and the fact that in both cases there is a PH level that needs to be kept under strict surveillance. PH is the shortcut for power of Hydrogen and it is the scale that measures the ions in your body. A human body aims for equilibrium, which means the PH has to be alkaline.
