1st season in new gunite/plaster pool. pool stored during June & July, TFP all of August. TA brought down in August from 170 to 90.
I usually add 2 cups 3 oz 31% MA each night to bring pH down to 7.5. It always rises up to 7.7/7.8 by the next night. I think this is from the new plaster.
My question is: will I get to the point where my pH stabilizes and I don't have to add acid? Or should I keep testing & adding acid? I do not want pH above 7.8 so I'm afraid to let it go for 2 days to see what happens to the pH.
Also, very windy here so I'm getting tons of leaves in the pool for the first time this season. Aside from dumping the skimmer baskets and leaf bagging frequently, do I need to do anything else, like increasing FC? I don't want algae!
