We are having a pool service close our pool but I have told them I will take care of balancing the water. I will admit I have not been testing as often as I should this past month but want to make sure everything is where it should be before we close.
The water doesn't look as crystal clear as I feel it did all summer but my readings are good I think. I have battled with adjusting the swg so that it maintains a lower number so I realize that is high. pH has held at 7.8 all summer. I have tried to lower it but it just jumps back up.
What is causing the slight cloudiness? Or is it in my head since I do feel the lighting changes this time of year.
What should I add to the pool before they cover? Chlorine, algaecide??
