    First tests of the year - low pH!

    Should I be adjusting the pH now or should I wait until the pool is opened and equipment reconnected in the spring?

    FC: 4.5 (floater with tri-chlor tablets all winter)
    CC: 0
    CYA: 70
    pH: lower than 6.8 (probably 6.6)
    TA: 40
    CH: 40 (vinyl)
    BOR: 40
    SALT: 2380

    If the pool is winterized leave things alone until you get the equipment running. And next year don't leave a trichlor floater in when you winterize.
