    Attempting to get my PH drift a little more stable

    Hello everyone, I'm thinking of doing this to my pool now in an attempt
    to get my PH drift a little more stable. I probably won't close the pool for
    another month yet. Is there any problem with doing this so soon before closing?
    I have ordered the Borate test strips and am collecting the acid and mule team to
    get er done...
    Thanks in advance..

    Shouldn't be a problem doing it now. Have you tried lowering the TA to stabilize the PH first?

    Yes,TA has been consistently in the 70 range.
    The PH I just cannot keep stable. No water features to cause issues.
    I had scaling issues over last winter and have been fighting this all season.
    Lets face it, it's not going to be very easy ad MA once circulation stops...
    I was keeping my FC a little on the high side (following best guess CYA chart) due to my CYA being around 90.
    I was going to let this come down a little to see if maybe they were related..
