Hi all. Newbie here with first post. We just closed our new pool for the winter. I had assumed that the closing company would test the water and add acid to the pool to balance the ph before closing and they did not. I had tested yesterday and ph was somewhere between 7.8 and 8.0 with TA of 80 and since I had run out of MA and assumed the closing company would take care of it I left it be. The pool was completed at the end of September and I have noticed the past month and half that I need to add a quart of Muratic Acid every few days to keep the ph down to 7.4-7.6 range. I'm told this isn't uncommon for newly plastered pools. The closing service added 2 quarts of scale inhibitor and polyquat. Is there anything I should do to keep the ph lowered through the winter, or should I just let it ride until spring? I don't want to damage my new plaster due to high ph all winter but I don't want to fret unnecessarily either.
