Thread: Should I try to adjust my pH?

    Should I try to adjust my pH?

    After my Baquacil conversion last month my TA went very high. I had been doing the acid/aerate thing to bring my TA down. Got it from 250 to 170. Then we started having a lot of rain and I began covering the pool and was no longer able to aerate. pH has been holding steady at 7.0 for a couple of weeks now. Is this an okay level for a vinyl liner or should I try to bring it up?

    I ordered that Intex SWG and thought that would bring the pH up over time, but at this point I am still waiting for the extra parts I need to connect it. I just ordered them, so hopefully I can have that running in the next week.

    A PH of 7.0 is likely to sting your eyes but it shouldn't be a problem for the liner.
