I switched to bleach a few years ago and have realized that our ph is higher these days and i have needed to use muriatic acid to lower it. Previously it has stayed low all season and never really caused a problem.
Is that a result of switching to bleach? Does it affect the ph differently from the tabs?
Also noticed we have gotten little spots of yellow algae in the corner of the stairs last season and this season where we never had it before. It hasn't been all over just in a few shady spots. Is this maybe because the ph is running higher than it had been the years before?
