I've been following this website for 4 weeks now. I drained my pool halfway to bring my CYA and CH down (CYA was 100+ and CH was 500). Now my battle is keeping the PH in the recommended level of 7.5-7.8 for plaster pools using bleach. I'm constantly adding Muriatic Acid every day I add bleach (not at the same time). I have read that bleach has a PH of 13 which would explain why my PH rises when I add chlorine. Big bottles of bleach and big bottles of muriatic acid are a pain to haul around the pool daily.
FC: 9 (added extra bleach because of rain in the forecast)
PH: 7.8 (was 7.5 before I added bleach)
I also have 2 small waterfalls plus a spa overflow into the pool.
Is there anything I can do to help stabalize my PH or is this just something I have to deal with because of using bleach?
Thanks in advance for your help.
