Many of you know that we had to drain and do an acid wash on our pool a few weeks ago due to high pH levels creating major scaling. So...I'm super nervous about my pH. WHY CAN'T I GET IT UNDER CONTROL!?!?! Is this just going to be a constant battle? Here are my numbers today:
pH 8.0 (YIKES!!) Was 7.6 2 days ago and I added 20 oz of acid.
FC 2.5 (I added 150 oz of liquid bleach 2 days ago...numbers are still the same. Just added salt to the pool 2 days ago. How long does it take for the salt to start producing chlorine??? Do I add another 150 oz of bleach again today? Salt level says 4000 on my remote. I really don't know what setting to have my salt on! I dialed it down b/c it was 4500 yesterday morning. But if I dial it down too much does that mean I'm defeating the purpose of the salt making the chlorine for me??? Omg...will I ever understand pool ownership despite reading Pool School multiple times????)
TA 140 (is this ok?)
The pH is driving me batty and I'm still trying to learn how all of the other levels affect the pH.
