I'm sure this is a stupid question - I've gone through the Pool School several times and have run my numbers through the Pool Calculator, but can't seem to wrap my head around this one area.
This is a new pool - still trying to get to an initial balance. I've added salt for the SWG - pump has been out so I've also been adding liquid chlorine. Pump has been replaced so I'm ready to continue with everything else.
Based on my K-2006 tests my TA is 60 and my pH is 7.7. So how can I lower pH without lowering my TA? (My pump was out for 2 weeks. The installer put a temporary pump on the side of the pool that pumped water out and right back in. He said it was to keep the water circulating. I'm guessing that this aeration going on all day is what caused my pH to increase. pH from the week before was 7.4.)
I'm going to start adding CYA today, sounds like this might take a while - and once I get TA and pH set I'm going to start with the borates.
