Hi, my second post. I am slowly getting comfortable however a few questions remain.
1. I have a plaster pool, but CH level is extremely high, probably around 900+. is this disastrous or not? I guess lowering would only be possible by emptying the pool, and then the replacement water would need to be softer.
2. I have a TA of 60, but my pH wants to sit at around 8 to 8.2 naturally. I add muriatic acid very couple of days to get to 7.5 but it just goes straight back up. Anything I can do to prevent that? I have a high amount of aeration, as we have a waterfall from the spa to the pool all day when pump runs (10 hours a day). I also notice very small air bubbles in 2 of the 4 inlet jets over the last couple weeks. Solving that doesn't seem too easy.
3. While I'm asking questions, is it typical to have all the flow through the 2 skimmer baskets and none from the bottom of the pool. I have automatic valves and it seems they were set that way.
Any help appreciated!
