    pH high, but draining soon. Should I adjust?

    Our pool was just completed and filled last weekend (Sept 26). We have a problem with the pool bottom that will require draining and repair, but that will not happen until we are closing for the winter. That almost certainly will be after next weekend. Our pH has been high since we filled, and I am wondering if I should try and bring it down just for the next week. We have had no issues with water clarity, and the other tests are all fine. I am assuming I should just leave it given the fact that we are going to be draining in a week. Thoughts?

    Forgot to say that the pH is 7.9 or 8.0.

    It's just gonna take a little muriatic acid to fix it. I would ask, why not?
