Decided this year to understand my vinyl pool.
We had been shocking and using tabs to maintain the pool, but the water never felt right and we had repeated algae outbreaks.
We had another algea outbreak this year and we decided to make some changes.
I have been using test strips and I will be acquiring a kit.
Originally I had zero ta, zero cya, and my ph was low enough to not even register....
I added 4 pounds of mule borax, 15 pounds of baking soda and 6 pounds of ash soda.
I have been using Clorox and have been able to maintain FC and tc without much issue.
NOW.. cya is 20, ta is 80, BUT ph is so low it still doesn't register and the low value is 6.2
I have been aerating the pool for about 8 hours now and the ph still isn't registering.
Sooooo how do I raise the ph, don't want to add soda ash because the ta is right.
