So,. Finally got my TA down, pH is 7.3, FC 2.5,.. CYA 60-70. SWG. Yesterday was the first day of full sun and two adult swimmers. I’m adding some bleach. My question is how much aeration do I need to raise my pH? I rigged this from an old pond pump. Is it enough?

And the only bleach I have is @ made with cloromax technology “ is this just something to look good in the label? Or am I going to have to get dressed and go to the store?🤪

Go to the store. Cloromax Technology is polymers that can create foaming in your pool. Crank up your SWG some.

pH of 7.3 is fine. See what your aeration does to it.

I was afraid you were going to say that:( I had a long day, in my bathing suit, was gonna get in and kick my little legs to raise my pH,...you've ruined my night :(

Jean,

Actually, your pH is just fine.. Anything in the 7's is good and it will come up on its own anyway..

Thanks,

Jim R.

There is no reason to adjust your pH at this point. It will go up on its own. And to reiterate do not use that Clorox bleach.
