    New Test Results. Feedback Please

    Got the TF 100 today and tested everything...results below:

    TC = 6.5
    FC = 6.0
    SALT =3400
    CH = 275
    CA = 60
    TA = 160
    Combined Chlorine = .5
    PH =7.2

    So, my questions is how to reduce the Alkalinity??
    Is this accomplished with raising PH?
    salt is just below the max according to the Intex manual (3500).

    Thanks to to all in advance...

    Update your signature that you have your kit, okay? How does your water look?

    There are many creative ways of raising pH with homemade fountains for aeration.

    Something like this John:



    Or you could run a separate submersible pump to push air into the water and/or create a fountain for aeration.

    Thanks guys...of cours after I posted and thought about it, I went to the pool math piece and input my numbers...voila! I told me what I needed...

    so so the return outlet breaking the surface is not enough aeration? Or the fountain way does it faster?
