A maintenance guy wasn't interested in maintaining my pool, so I've turned to this website and need some advice. I purchased the Taylor kit and ran the tests. Results are as follows: CYA = 100 (or more), FC=2, CC=.5, PH=7.5, TA=120. The pool was completed in August of 2014 and I have been maintaining it since. I thought the salt was the only thing I needed to be concerned with, but then had my water tested and the ph was high. I've had to add muratic acid quite a bit over the last year to get the ph within range. The water looks pretty clear, but there is a definite chemical smell that has led me to believe something isn't right. Any advice would be appreciated.
