Hey all we just had our first swimming pool installed and we have been trying to monitor the PH and Chlorine levels with our test kit that the pool company provided. The pool was filled June 3rd of this year for the first time and the PH has been hovering around 8.3-8.5. We have read that the plaster curing will raise pH of the pool for some time but we are wondering if we should add some acid for the time being etc?
It is a 40K Gallon Salt Water Gunite pool. The Chlorine level is on the low side of ideal would allowing the cell to run and bring up the Chlorine help?
Any help for a noob would be great!
