    Pool Math

    I thought the section that shows the "Effects of adding chemicals" used to show pH increase when adding bleach. Right now it is showing the decrease for using DiChlor/TriChlor, but not increases when adding bleach. Will the estimate for the pH increase return (if my memory is correct) or be added?

    Bleach is effectively pH neutral. The pH will rise slightly when you add the bleach, but as the FC is consumed the pH drops back down.

    I do not recall it ever showing a pH rise for liquid chlorine.

    OK, you would know so it must be my bad memory, thanks!
