This is my first post and I find the site extremely informative. One thing I couldn't find is the importance of pH when shocking. I've got a high CYA level right now and am battling some algae growth.
Before I shocked, I had a pH of 7.5. Post-shock (Raising 15ppm) of about 4 hours, I had a pH of 8.0.
Is it normal for the pH to jump under shock? Does it make sense to adjust the pH under shock?
Thanks again guys.
