    Ph keeps going up

    I don't have any kind of automation. The system is probably 30 years old with manual valves to direct the return.

    Ph keeps going up

    Got it. So I'm basically stuck and simply have to add MA whenever I fill? What can I use to drop TA? What's my target TA?

Im thinking about getting either a swcg or automatic chlorinator, both of which should significantly reduce my cost. I am pretty...

    Tiles coming off the coping - NJ Coping/Tile company recommendation too?

    I have quite a few tiles that came off the but I'm hoping if we just replace all the tiles with waterproofing it won't be a major huge deal (as compared to also replacing the entire coping)
