This might be a topic for chemistry 101, but am putting it here because I am a newie. My pool for several reasons has an acid demand. This means that every so often (usually once a week) I have to add acid to the pool to lower the pH. However in doing so I also kill by total alkalinity level. Friday night I dosed my pool with acid. Saturday morning my readings: (I added a bit too much acid this time)
I added 8 lbs of baking soda and Sunday morning:
So my question is I am going to have to add 8 to 10 lbs of baking soda every time I correct the pH on my pool? If so what is this going to do to my TDS?
