    Lowering pH while raising Alk ( or keeping it at same level)

    My pH reading is around 7.8 and my Alk is 60. My pool responds better when I keep it around 7.2 and the Alk around 70... water sparkles better chlorine usage etc. Any suggestions on how to do this?

    Free Chlorine is 3, CYA is 55

    use baking soda to raise alk to about 80ppm...it won't affect PH much. Then us Muratic acid which wil lower PH and TA
