I'm new to the web site (Great site and appreciate any help).
Not sure how to post this as a new thread, so I just replied to an existing.

The pool :
18 foot Round x 52 inch deep above ground pool = 7,120 gallons
Vinyl with Cartridge pump and Salt water system.
Took the water sample to the store yesterday and received the following report.
Temperature = 78 F
I have the AquaChek test strips which read as follows from this morning :
pH 8.4 +
CYA - 30-50
My concern. Everytime I goto this pool place I'm spending 100-200 dollars on chemicals.
They keep saying my Alkalinity is too high but nothing seems to work.
pH has been too high since day one.
The pool is clear and chlorinator runs for 12 hours a day.
Salt level is perfect.
I filled the pool up with Water Conditioned water (Oops).
Chemicals I've purchased...Not necessarily used...
10 packets of Clearshock
5 bags of salt
Mineral Springs Salt pool Enhancer
How do I get the Alkalinity down (pH as well)..
Without spending another 300+ dollars.
Any help would be appreciated!!!
