... are we using such a silly word for keeping the chemical parameters of swimming pool water aligned?
We can fiddle around in a pretty broad range of FC/TC, TA, pH, etc., and still have sparkly pool water. The term balance just doesn't seem right. Trust me, I've heard it used for quite a while - managed my first commercial pool in 1978 and have had my current residential pool since 1995 - but, it never seemed like quite the right way to describe properly managed pool water.
Wadda y'all think? Does balanced make sense or is there a more appropriate term?
Just a think piece and I hope I posted it out of the main stream.
