Well I thought I had this pool chemical thing licked but I'm a little confused.
My current measurements.
Yesterday AM my measurements were
I added about 8 ounces of Trichlor yesterday to bring up the chlorine (which was at .5 in the am yesterday) and the CYA.
Chlorine dropped(very sunny all day), so it would appear I need to bring my CYA higher)
I also added enough baking soda(in combination with the borax) to bring up the TA to 110-120 (which worked)
I also added borax to bring up the PH which was around 6.8--I used the pool calculator and added enough to bring it up to 7.6 (or so I thought).
We swam all day and now it seems its at 8.2+. Im guessing maybe the kids (and myself) swimming in the pool "aerated" the pool and brought up the PH ?
Is it still safe to swim with this high of a PH ?
