Hi all - our pool is going into its second full summer. It is ~11k gallons, IG with minipebble finish, and SWG. Since the very beginning, I've had to put put acid in (~32 oz every week) to maintain the pH and have just accepted this as standard for my pool.
Well, last weekend I had the idea of testing my pool water with the High Level pH Test Kit that I use for my saltwater reef tank. I've been testing it over the past few weeks and the pH has been staying steady at 8.2, with no additional acid, and with the SWG running at 30% (I run it at 40% during the heat of the summer).
So my question - can I just stop fighting the pH? Is it ok to just keep my pool pH at 8.2?
