I purchased a new house over the winter and am starting my first year of pool maintenance. Up to point, I've had the pump/filter circulating water in the pool and hot tub together. They are connected by a waterfall and I have been leaving that on so that the water will circulate. I've recently learned that the waterfall aeration causes my pH to rise very quickly, so I would like to stop doing it this way. What I need to find out is what is the best way to handle this situation. Do I need to go out and manually change the valves to filter the hot tub water every day?
I am hoping that there is a better way. I would rather not have to do 2 water tests and manually adjust the valves every day. Thanks in advance for any advice that you can give to this newbie.
