    Do you have any other numbers that does not tell us much other than your pH is likely dangerously high and needs to be lowered with acid.

    I only have a strip test and it tests for
    free cholrine
    ph
    ppm total alkalinity.

    So for PH I would need to use add -ph solution.

    Re: Pool math

    I'm a new pool owner and have an important suggestion. Please consider purchasing a test kit. TK-100 is the one I bought. A little expense up front but you'll know your exact numbers. The website to purchase test kits is in the forum somewhere. I'll find it and follow up.

    My TA is high also but by other's suggestions I am being patient as changes in pool water can take days to balance out in some cases.

    Yep- you NEED a proper test kit. You'll save money and headache in the long run. Test strips are generally worthless.
