Hi again guys!
So, I thought I should post my results and see if I can get some help here. It's not too bad actually, but I do struggle with CH.
Anyways, here are the results:
So, my pH is still rising, but slower now than before it seems. Need to add a liter of HCL about once every 2 weeks now. Not too bad.
But my CH level is still the same.. And as far as I know, I cant get Calcium chloride here. Are there any other way for me to rise my CH? I thought that if it was too low, it would take CH from the concrete in the pool. But that would have made the CH rise, right? But nothings happening here..
Also, as some already might know already, I've got limited chlorine options. Looking into SWG as the CYA is rising way too quick here. Just 2 months ago the CYA was close to zero (or very low). Since the pool is quite big, and water expensive, I cant refill. Not as a part of the maintenance at least.
When I open my eyes under water, I can feel it stings my eyes a bit. Not too bad, but more than I would think. But it doesn't burn afterwards, and there is no smell of chlorine in the water. And pH seems fine. But I just got back home from honeymoon in the Philippines, and the pool at Shangi-La must have been a SWG pool, as the water tasted salty. But it was absolutely lovely to open my eyes under water there.. In fact, it was so comfortable that I found myself sitting on the bottom just looking under water hehe... I can be a child sometimes.. I know..
It's not that my water here is that bad, but I just don't want to keep my eyes open for too long under water in case there might be something wrong. Any ideas?
I think SWG is the way to go for chlorination, as this climate and the limited chemicals gives me no other option. So that will be the next stepp I guess..
Oh, and the pool is 100% clear. Very nice indeed. I just struggle mainly with eyes stinging under water, CH levels too low, and CYA raising.
