My alkalinity is off the charts, but my PH is in range. When talking to the pool store, they tell me to put in 10 lbs of PH Minus, so I did, dropped my PH way low, but brought the alkalinity down some. Though it still was not in range. So now the pool store tells me I need to add 8 lbs of PH plus to bring the PH back up, so I did. I brought the PH back up, but the alkalinity went back off the chart. After going through this cycle twice with the pool store, I'm starting to wonder if they have any idea of what they are talking about.
Is there any way to bring the alkalinity and PH both into rage at the same time?
