Due to some overly hot days here over the last few days I have understandably lost more pool water than usual due to evaporation (its over 40 degrees Centigrade here today)
I've currently got the hose in the pool topping it up and it occurred to me that it might be useful to measure the water going in for some basics to see how that might affect my overall balance.
Here's what I got by testing the tap water:
pH: > 8
My pool values tested at the same time are:
I'm going to do another test after I finish topping up and see how the numbers pan out.
Regarding the tap water numbers:
- Do they look OK?
- Anything I need to be wary of?
- Any other tests worth doing on tap water?
Am I right in thinking that I can expect to see pH in the pool rise as a result of this top up?
