    Adding MA every day or get a dosing pump.

    Hi, Ive worked it out that i have to add 14oz of MA every day to keep my PH balanced at the same level. So is it better to buy a dosing pump , so less interaction with the chemical... Your thoughts please.

    Latest update. I have followed the guidelines from the forum I lowered PH to 7.4 and this also lowered TA to 80 I added Chlorine to bring FC to 3 CYA is about 50 but my test strip is not that accurate it seems. SWG is working and producing Chlorine. I think the main reasons I was having...

    SWG pool. PH keeps increasing

    Yesterday I added Acid to bring PH down to 7.6. Tested again today and back to PH .7.8. How much acid is it safe to put in a pool in 1 day.... My SWG doesn't seem to like 7.8 as it keeps turning off.. I was wanting to bring PH down to 7 and hopefully lower the TA as well.

    SWG pool. PH keeps increasing

    Thanks Jim, I'm just going off my test strips kit which says (TA 120 is ok). But thanks and hopefully in time it will come down. My SWG manual says PH should be between 7 and 7.6. So maybe every couple of days when PH rises I will need to add acid to bring levels back down? ( Or I should look...
