    HIGH PH?

    I have a quick question about PH? I tested this morning after alot of rain yesterday due to tropical storm. My #'s were:

    FC: 4.6
    PH: 8.0
    TA: 160
    CH: 200
    CYA: 45

    I know that I need to get my PH down (was 7.6-7.8 before storm) which I was going to add acid this afternoon but was wondering since my FC was good it is safe to swim with a high PH?

    Thanks

    It might irritate your eyes, but plenty of people have tap water with higher pH and they bathe in it. You know that acid will fix the pH in about half an hour, especially if you brush a little to really get it mixed, right?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
