Thank you for your forum! I am 8 months pregnant and enduring the 90 + degree days of wonderful Colorado. The pool is surely a refuge. However, the chemistry is a bit confusing. We have been using (apparently) the dreaded test strips and have had consistent low ph, and cya (the strips just say stabilizer) that won't even register. Since we have been trying to add stabilizer/conditioner, the fc and cc have both been increasingly high, even though the cya and ph remain low. Is this a case of just bad strips? What can I do to lower fc/cc?
Thanks in advance!
