    pH ?

    As a matter fact my PH skyrocketed over 3 days. Went from 7.2 to 7.9 over 3 days. My PH rarely moved over the entire season and now it's gone nuts.

    Re: pH ?

    I moved your thread. That thread was talking about CYA and your pH issue is unrelated.

    As far as pH moving like that, that's pretty near impossible unless someone put something in your pool to force it to move like that.

    Did the Sense & Dispense stop working?

    How do I know if it stopped working? It still registers on my OmniLogic.

    Re: pH ?

    If is was working, the pH would not have gone up because it would have added more acid to compensate for any pH rise.

    Oh I'm sorry. I misunderstood the question.
    I don't have the acid dispenser part of the Sense and dispense. I only have the PH and ORP sensing part. I add the acid manually as I see the need too.
    Thx.

    Re: pH ?

    Well, I do not know how well those sensors stay calibrated. Have you been independently testing the pH levels?

    Re: pH ?

    Yes I usually test the PH with the OTO kit that I got from tftestkits.
