I started on this forum about 1.5 yrs ago. I learned and applied the TFP method. I feel like I have been successful except for dealing with pH. Here are my numbers:
I have to add MA every 2-3 days to get the pH down to 7.6 ppm. Last year, I asked the same question and someone told me that my pool was new and the plaster is still curing. I was told that the pH could stabilize after my 1 yr anniversary. It's been a little over 1 yr and it still is doing the same thing. There are certain areas in the pool that have "white spots." Sometimes, I would put MA in a water bottle and put the cap back on. The cap would have a hole that I made. I would go to the area with the white spots and blast it with the water bottle. The white spots would go away.
I have tried lowering my TA down to 50 but it eventually goes back up again.
I have also had a pool guy doing some acid washing. It looked nice after the procedure was done but the pH would climb again.
I have read with envy how some of the people on this forum do not have to add MA because it stays constant. Will I ever get to this point or do I have to continually add MA?
