My pool typically runs towards the high end of the pH scale, balancing it below 7.8 can be somewhat tedious. If I let it go for over a week, it's almost 100% certain that the pH will be 8.0+. My question is this: is this normal for a 3+ year old salt water pool to constantly have high pH (I'm using a Jandy AquaPure 1400) system? All of my #s are in their acceptable ranges so I feel as though this is what I'll always be dealing with.
Because of the tendency of my pH to rise, I will have to monitor it throughout the winter as well. Is there any particular method of distributing acid to a closed pool w/out circulation? My assumption is to add it to a big bucket of water and pour through my mesh cover, then immediately dose the area with additional water.
Thanks for your help.
