Last couple of years I have been fighting PH. It always goes up. I try to keep TA around 90, PH at 7.2. Within a week, PH is up to 7.8 and TA usually the same. If I add acid, PH goes down, TA goes down. If I add TA increaser, I can udually get the water back to balance, but then I'm back to adding acid and TA increaser over and over. This is getting expensive.
Just opened to the pool for the spring, PH is greater than 8.2, that's as high as my tester will go, and TA is 40. How is TA 40 from doing nothing tot he pool all winter?
So, I guess I'm confused. Is this all normal?
If no, how can I keep the PH from just going up all the time?
What casues PH to just go up?
Any help would be great. Thanks much all.
