Let me first say, I am new to pool ownership. We have owned our house since June that had a pool built in 2008. Since living here, the pool has been crystal clear and all I have done is added salt (based on salt cell reading which I have now figured out is incorrect and I added too much salt). About a month ago, I started noticing white flakes which I now know is calcium. Our tap water is high in calcium, so when I top it off, it won't lower the calcium . I took my water in to have it tested and here were the results :
I used Alkalinity up to increase the TA before adding acid. I then added 32 ounces of MA. I then added water conditioner to increase the CYA.
My numbers as of today are:
Since having the water tested a week ago, I have added a GALLON of MA and I still can't get the pH to stay in the range. Yesterday, it was 7.4 and today 8.2?? I am so frustrated!! Ant idea why I can't get the pH to stay in range?
