    Just got back from vacation.. Need some help / advice with test values..

    Just got back from a week away.. I had my dad come and add 48/32/48/32/48 every other day (48 ounces Saturday, 32 ounces Monday, 48 ounces Wednesday, etc).. The solar cover never came off and I think the weather was pretty rainy all week..

    Anywho, just got back and tested my water.. Values below:

    FC: 11
    pH: 7.0
    TA: 90

    I'm thinking I don't need to do anything for a few days and just let the FC come down.. My pH.. I've added 76 ounces of Borax twice since I've had the pool (installed on 7/4) and again it's back to 7.0.. Not sure if I should add again or just let it go..

    Water is crystal clear..

    Thanks for the help!

    Either add a little more or create a water feature to bring the pH up slowly. Folks around here are creative, Do a search and you will see several home made water features to bring up the pH.
