Greetings. I was just wondering if anyone else had this experience.
For the two seasons prior this one, I regularly had to add MA to control ph. Eg. Twice a week.
I am on well water with iron so use sequestrants -- prior seasons, jack's pink, this season switched to proteam's Metal Magic.
Since a stain treatment with large amounts of metal magic more than a month ago, and maintenance levels weekly since, I've not once had to adjust ph...has stayed right at 7.4.
My TA is a tiny bit lower this year (right at 70).
So has my pool just found its sweet spot in terms of TA (and ergo ph), or is it possible that the Metal Magic is helping "hold" the ph where the Jack's didn't?
I was just curious to see if anyone else using sequestrants had this experience. Metal Magic instructions on the bottle "tell" you to raise the ph when treating...so maybe they "know" it pushes ph down?
