I have 6 month old gunite pool. The water temp is around 50 degrees. 48 this morning. Should I still be checking the PH levels and keeping them down. I know a new pools usually raises the PH level during the 1st year but wondering if it will affect the plaster if it goes to high during the winter. I am only running the pump when I vacum out the junk on the bottom of the pool, about every 3 weeks. I have been putting some MA in when the pump is running.
Also, when I do a PH test is it ok to test right away or should i let the water warm up soom?
Thanks and ope eveyone has a great new years.
