Hi. this is my first post on TFP but I've been religously reading all the great advice here and also on the Pool Forum. Just a brief background on me. I have had two pools, one a liner inground for four years using Baquacil and a gunite inground using Baquacil for the first six years. Last September I switched to BBB and this season my pool never looked so good and not one problem all year, thank god! I have ruined many shirts and pants using the bleach but it is worth it. I just wanted to post my today's numbers to get some feedback. I have had to constantly had MA to keep my PH at or around 7.5-7.6. It wants to rise sometimes .5 in a week. I could understand this if the pool was still curing but not six years later. I didn't seem to have this when I was using Baq. But all said and done my water is sparkling clear and looks great and has been this way all season. My only additions during the year have been Bleach, MA as needed for PH, Baking Soda to raise TA, and CYA since I only use Trichlor Tabs when on vacation.
