Hello! First time post, recent "binge" reader - my apologies if a similar topic has been addressed!
I opened my pool a few weeks ago and everything is running/looking great, the water is crystal clear. I decided to get a test kit (Taylor 2005 - I understand I may need to buy the additional components to bring it up to 2006 standards) and utilize it daily/weekly this year since I have failed to do so in the past and went by the "how does my water look, smell, feel" test. My PH must be VERY low! My water test indicated that it is low (yellow) and also my TA test turned RED (never went to GREEN) immediately. I've added around 8lbs (give or take) of Soda Ash over the last week or so and my PH level is still testing low. Should I continue to add Soda Ash? Or switch to something different.
Thanks for all of your help in advance! As I mentioned above, I'm new to posting to the forum, but I've binge read this forum over the past week, so I'm relatively familiar with the TFP jargon! I'm currently at work but can post more detailed test results if need be this evening.
