Due to high CH i am running with a with PH and TA on the low side. not sure if balancing to accommodate the high CH can cause issues for the pool or if balanced is "balanced".
pool is running clear and consistent. daily FC loss is ~2-3ppm and ph rises only slowly over the course of 5-7 days
Any issues with my numbers?
on a side note... since this is an old pool and me a first time pool owner i was not concerned that one of my returns was missing an eyeball. yesterday i found one sitting around and thought that maybe if i put it in the other returns might get a boost. WOW! now i have almost a spa and water is circulating extremely well. Also noted that the pressure on my DE filter went up 7-8lbs. this seems, to me, to be a dramatic change in the way the pool has been operated. should i backwash to reset my baseline or just let it rise another 2-4lbs?
