Well I decided to convert from Baqua b/c my oxidizer wasn't lasting 2 days. Thought as many post as there are here I could do it by reading them and not asking questions. But of course I have a question now.
I somehow missed the fact that PH should have been 7.2-7.4.I have used 20some bottles of bleach, vacuumed, scrubbed, backwashed, all numerous times. My water is just slightly hazy only in the deep end. Shallow is crystal clear. Oh, and I started on Wednesday(2 days ago).
Didn't get my kit until later today but I still had some FC this AM based on a test strip. I added some bleach throughout the day today but tonight I have raised my levels and FC is 15.5. My PH however is 7.8.
At this point I am wondering if it matters and if I should go ahead and lower it. Just out of curiosity, what is the reason for PH needing to be this?
Thanks for all the help!
