Hello , I am a first time pool owner with a above ground 3000 gallon intex prism pool (16 X 8). I live in extremely hot weather and the pool is situated outside in the yard (uncovered). I have just started understanding a bit about ph level and alkalinity. I have a 2100 gph intex sand filter. Currently, I am adding clarifier and bromine tablet once a week and algecide once in 12 weeks. I recently tested the ph Which was high (8.6 range). I used the ph down once to bring down the ph level and it worked (7.2 range). Tested again a couple of days later and the ph level is back in the high range. I am not sure if I should adjust ph before or after the clarifier. Looking for some advice for a correct order of clarifier vs bromine tablet vs ph down.
