I have lurked on this site for a while, but never posted. My wife and i recently bought a new home with a pool, and I have a question regarding pH
Backstory: I followed directions from this site regarding adding borates to my pool. I didn't quite get the specs down to the recommended levels before proceeding, but they were close.
I cannot get the pH below and 8 for an extended period of time, and over the last couple of months I have added a ton of MA. Not literally, but probably 10 - 20 gals. easily. My TA level is consistently around 130 with a pH of 8.0 - 8.2. I followed recommendations on this site to get pH down to 7.0 - 7.1 with MA and then aerate to get pH up. My TA dropped to around 100 - 110, but never 80.
Anyone have any ideas on how to stabilize my pH around 7.6. Thanks in advanvce!
PS. Just in case my pool stats don't show. My pool is 23,700 SWG in ground-gunite, DE Filter, Jandy controls and valves
