    Do I need to adjust ch/

    Ok so I cheated and had the pool store test my water here are my results

    cya 70

    free chlorine 1.5

    ph 7.6

    tot alkalinity 100
    adj tot alk 79

    total hardness 117

    I have a kayak pool that 16 x 24 4 fiit deep it holds app 11500 gal
    I use liquid bleach to chlorinate with.

    I was told to adjust my alkalinity with balance pack 100 and ph . Is it really nessisary

    Your water is in pretty good shape according to their test result. No need to mess with CH at all.

    You do need more chlorine to handle your 70ppm CYA. You should try to keep it between 5 and 8 ppm.

    Thank you for answering so quickly. I didn't think it was nessisary being I have a vinyl liner but just thought I would double check.
