      Baking soda raises TA. It very slightly effects pH. Raise your TA to 70 ppm. Aeration will raise your pH. Unless you have the pool...

      Well that explains it. I thought washing soda and baking soda were the same thing. I’ll move the jets and start aerating. Thanks!

      My pH has been running low since opening the pool. Around 7 but maybe high 6’s, hard to tell from the color bands on the tester at that...

      It worked well. I’m not sure how long it’s warranted for, but it was expensive so I hope it lasts 5 years or more. It’s a nice cover...

      Well, pffffffffft !!!!!! In THAT case, drop your FC to 1 and let the CYA climb as high as 200. Might as well get one of those...
