@ajw22 thanks for the reply.
I use the clear choice labs test kit today's readings are:
Water temp: 29c / 84f
Sorry I don't have a salt reader..
Now I'll re-test it in a few days time and the pH will rise to 8-8.2 with a TA of 100+ so bizarre..
I never wipe down the reagent tip. I do add 1 drop and put the lid back on.
I never try and keep my pH that low, what I'm saying as a reference is if my pH is under 7.8 the TA is around 80, however when it gets to 8-8.2 the TA will jump to 110..
I try to keep my pH at 7.7-7.8 ideally and add...
After having a new pool for about a year now, I'm starting to figure out it's weekly routine on when to add acid. My question is, if my pH is 7.4 TA is usually around 80ppm. However when the pH rises to around 7.8-8 it jumps to 100-120ppm. Is this normal?
I find myself adding 2 cups of...
I've just bashed washed my in-ground pool in preparation for my holiday's and noticed the following. If I brush/slash with water the marking disappears for a minute before returning. Anyone know what it is? I've never seen this before. Thanks!
I had the same problem, I couldn't keep the pH down! Pulling hair as my test kit & pool shop were reading the same TA levels, until I got myself a CCL kit, my TA is stable around 60-80 and I'm not adding acid so frequently!
Moral to the story, get yourself a Taylor kit and drop TA down to...
Hi all, thanks for the reply.
My CYA is @ 70.
I noticed the Algae after the last down pour we had here. I've put some chlorine on it and there she goes. Looks like the concrete is still wet! I'm not sure why thats the case - pool was only freshly pebblecrete about 6-8months ago.
Hi all, relatively new but found everyone extremely helpful in getting my pool chems sorted. I’ve got a weird one, looks like there’s algae in the skimmer box only.. is this of a concern ? Thanks.

I feel like my pool too pauses around 7.8! I generally leave it at 7.8 unless the Aussie Gold kit reports an 8.
I actually have a log book (best idea!). I generally add 2cups of acid every 3-4 days. Where as the spa needs 1/4 cup acid every second day along with some buffer.
Acid pump hey...
