Okay, the pool is coming up on 4 months old. White Quartz plaster.
Everything's been fine so far except for the constantly rising pH. I've been adding about 8-12 oz of muriatic acid per day. I think I'm ready to add borates to the pool to try and maintain the pH at a more constant level.
Is it too early to do so? Are there any good reasons to wait?
CYA is about 60 ppm
TA is about 80-100 ppm
FC is between 5-7 ppm depending on bather load
SWG is running at 10% duty cycle for about 18 hours/day.
