Quick backrground ... first year on BBB and have had clear water since day 1 and have added nothing but chlorine after a batch of stabilizer in the beginning. My numbers have been perfect all along.
I even went on a week of vacation and managed to educate my 18 year old daughter enough to have her maintain it while i was gone for 8 days .... my only concession was to leave the solar cover off so i didn't have to alter my daily dose based on whether it was in use ... and returned to a clear pool!
My ph has always been right around 7.5 .... and it now reads over 7.8 but below 8.2 so i am guessing 8.0 or so
current results from this morning
so my questions are should i lower ph?? ... if so shoot for 7.2 or 7.5 ... pool calculator shows 31 oz of MA to get to 7.5
is it worth doing anything else
any thoughts as to why it would rise? .... we had a bunch of rain recently and pool went up 2 or 3 inches
