After 8 years of tablets I'm 3 weeks into the BBB method thanks to all of the great advice on this forum. Got tired of the frequent drain/fill cycles to reduce my CYA.
I got the CYA down to 50 from 140.
Here are my latest test results (Taylor K-2006 test kit)
The water is crystal clear, best it has ever looked.
My problem is the PH creeps up to 8.0 in 3-4 days, I add acid to bring it down but in another 3-4 days it's back up to 8.0.
When I used tablets and cal-hypo for chlorination I didn't have to adjust the PH, it stayed pretty constant. (tested with the Aqua-Chek TruTest prior to the Taylor K-2006)
Can anyone help? Am I doing something wrong? I'm going on vacation soon for 2 weeks, I am going back to tablets then but now I'm worried about the PH over that period of time.
