    Test results with no problems. Just want to make sure I am doing OK.

    These are my test results tonight

    FC 5.5
    CC 0
    pH 7.8
    TA 120
    CH 40
    CYA 35

    My pH is on the high end of the recommendations. It was 7.5 a month ago. I assume it has risen because of the TA being at 120. Will the pH continue to rise? And if so should I lower the TA first?

    And does my CH being low matter?
    1) The size of your pool in gallons 4440.
    2) The type filter you have is an Intex 2500 gph and it has a re-useable fabric filter
    3) If your pool is an AG (above ground)
    4) Intex 15 by 48 metal frame.
    5) If you know, tell us the size pump 2500gph and the size (flow rate) of your filter.

    I would lower your PH now with acid. When you keep lowering the PH the TA should start to come down also.
    I'm not sure about the CH being a bit low with the vinyl pool. I know the CH isn't as important with a liner pool unless it's really high. Being low I'm not sure.

    Low CH does not matter.
