We are going on vacation for 5 days and I am wondering how low I should drop my pH. I have a steadying rise of about .3 per day for my new plaster pool. And by dropping my pH, of course my TA will fall. Here are my numbers:
pH. 7.8 (I will add acid to drop it down to at least 7.5)
I have a SWCG (it's on 30% and seems to keep the FC at 5.5-6) so I'm not worried about FC. My pool only gets a few hours of full sun and has a light bather load. IF I can drop the pH down without any problems, then that would be great, but otherwise I'll have my son come over and do the pH test and add MA.
(I think I already know the answer, but just want to get the experts opinions!).
