We filled our pool in late August. I go to the pool store once a week for testing. The pool builder told us the best way to support the warranty was to show our papers with good result. We have Crystal Stone finish. I keep the PH right around 7.2-7.4 because it is so new. The pool store told me the CH was so high because when we brush the outside of the pool it adds calcium to the pool water. The first testing in September showed CH 400 Stabilizer 90. Both numbers are now considered "high". I see many saying to drain it but seems crazy for us because it was just filled. What should we do?
salt water (which even though it is turned off is reading TC level of 5)
Pentair intelliflo pump and DE filter (which is only a few weeks old because of recall)
