    High alkalinity low ph

    I agree. If the PH stays steady I wouldn’t worry about it. If the PH rises with the high TA (as it should) adding acid to bring the PH down will eventually lower your TA.

    PH Difference

    Thanks for all of the help. I did complete the calibration. The 7.0 solution read 6.86 and the smiley face did appear and stay there and I believe the PH calibration read 6.98 at the end. When I hit the button to end the calibration I did not get an error message. I will do the calibration again...

    PH Difference

    Thanks for the hints. I thought I calibrated it correctly but will do it again. One thing that did confuse me a bit is that when I put it in the 7.0 solution to calibrate, the solution reads 6.86. Is that correct or is the solution bad? When I put it in the 4.0 solution it reads 4.0.

    PH Difference

    I could not agree more. I managed the pool great using the Taylor. I actually bought it because I got lasik surgery and I now need readers. So without my readers the comparator was a little small and with them it seemed distorted. I still have the large comparator that came with my TF100. Maybe...

    PH Difference

    I bought an Apera PH 60 to test the PH of my pool water. Supposed to be accurate to the hundredths. I am not sure why I bought it as I have been successful managing my pool water with the Taylor surecheck (the small comparator). I think I just wanted a new toy! Now that I have used it...

    Freezing weather coming

    I open my pool early in April every year. In Ohio this happens every year at least once after I open my pool. It is actually going to happen here this week. Remember it is only going to be below freezing for a couple of hours. Usually the day before and the day after the temps are quite a bit...

    Open pool and temps in the mid 20s forecasted this week

    I have the same problem but am not really worried. The water temp is 60 and it is only supposed to be be below freezing for a couple of hours. Daytime temps both the day before and after are above freezing. I am no expert but I doubt it will be cold enough for long enough to do any damage. But I...

    Pool opened. Next year I'll open it myself.

    Paid a company for three years to open my pool. Didn’t mind paying them and certainly don’t begrudge anyone earning a profit. I hire out my grass cutting landscaping etc. Things I can do but just don’t want to be bothered with. That being said my son in law talked me into opening the pool...

    PH Test Question

    I took a PH reading today and the first picture is when I first shook it up. It looks like about 7.2. I got distracted and when I came back the color had turned much pinker and it looked to be 7.8-8.0. I was gone only a few seconds. Is this normal? I never noticed this before. I expected the PH...

    Ohio Pool Opening

    I opened my pool yesterday to this! I did cheat a little. A few days before I opened the corner of my cover and dropped in the robot to vacuum. Thanks TFP!
