Long time reader first time posting. Here's a little background. I have been a pool owner for 6yrs. Finally broke down and bought both a new sand filter and Taylor k2006 test kit. Love em! Left pool up last fall knowing it was going to be a huge challenge for me this spring. One month later and I can see the bottom and pool has some sparkle yet doesn't meet my standards. Here are my numbers from this morning..
fc 5 lost 2 ppm since yesterday
ph 7.4 drifted up since yesterday from 7.2
Here are my questions. Should I lower my Ta and raise my cya? Think the higher Ta is making ph fluctuate and low cya causing chlorine loss? I know I'm in the right place for great answers!
