Hello. This has been ongoing since pool install...My plaster/pebble pool is a year old now and I am still having to add acid about every other day due to high pH. Is this normal for anyone else? Here are my test results:
pH-8.2 down to 7.4 with almost a half gallon of muriatic acid this morning
CH- 375(may be lower if "violet" counts as turning blue)
CYA- 20( I added 2 lbs of stabilizer 2 weeks ago and still getting low result)
Just for fun, I tested with the strips just to compare and my pH ALWAYS reads the same, 7.2. Can't believe they can sell such worthless ****!
I live in central Texas where the water is very hard and the pool was filled with well water, fyi.
This may be a dumb question but what happens to all of that acid? It cannot be good to have to add so much so often right? What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any advice you can give.
