My pool is fairly automated and indoor so maintenance sometimes gets neglected. I did a
cartilage filter cleaning, screen cleaning and have a unique solution for lowering the total Alkalinity. I add Muratic acid to drop PH to 7.0, luckily I have a digital PH read on my Chemtrol, then I have a shop vac dedicated for this task that I stick in the ladder to bubble the pool. I need to leave at least one door open for the gas to escape. This process takes about 24 hours to get to the recommended 60-80 range, I get up periodically is add acid throughout the night.
Thanks to the borates my algae problems are a thing of the past as well as the ph fluctuations. Thanks TFP[attachment=0:1hk41zsg]HPIM0960.JPG[/attachment:1hk41zsg]
This is a pic when new, the paint has faded and there is rust staining from the ladder now. Having shocked with bleach in the past, the liner has faded, what is the recommended amount to safely shock a vinyl pool ?
