    So what would you do if your acid pump would accidentally pump 6.8 gallons of 33% acid into your 12,000 gallon pool, and bring the pH down to 2.7(!)?
    i have started adding soda ash, about 200 gr' per day, is there any problem to add more than that?
    theoretically, this should have brought my FC level up, but it's close to 0...(but that mite just be because my CYA is also very low...)-does anyone think it mite be connected?

    Lol, there must be an error in your test kit, you could not have a pH that low.

    If your PH is really that low, you want to raise it back up to at least 7.0 right away. PH below 7.0 can damage the pool. The lower the PH and the longer it is low the more damage there will be.
