Hi all, been learning a lot lurking on this great site, best resource by far for my new pool. I've been adding a ton of acid, not too surprised since we get a ton of sun, plaster is still only 4 months old, spill over spa, SWG, and lots of happy kids splashing! But I was really hoping it would get better, been putting in around 4 cups mur acid every 2-3 days, and seems like whenever I test my ph its at or very near the 8.0 (I have a Leslie DPD complete test kit, which i use at least every other day). Seems like my TA wont get below 90. also, for the first time today my chlorine is a bit low so turned up the SWG (from 60% to 70% so that will cause even more drift. Anyway, here are my test results as of today, any thoughts/suggestions/ encouragement greatly appreciated!!
TC 1.5 (I think, only slightly darker
ph 7.9 (maybe 8)
