Just received my new testing kit and had the following results:
FC = 5
CC = .5
pH = 8.2
TA = 100
CH = 650
CYA = 30
I tested the water twice to make sure I got accurate results. Obviously the pH is high and I'm about to add muriatic acid. CH also appears to be really high. How do I go about lowering this?
I also want to mention something I can't figure out. For the last 3 weeks my salt reading has been steady at 3,000. However the last few days it's jumped to 3,100. What's the cause of this? I haven't added any salt and the cell is only a few months old.
And by the way, the pool is new to me, but it's 8 years old.
Advice is greatly appreciated.
