As I understand it, liquid chlorine has a chemical reaction that raises the PH to 13 ppm which is suppose to adjust (lower) throughout the day to basically net zero. So if you have a liquid chlorine feeder with water combined in the tank does the PH neutralize while in the tank before being released into the pool? Does this feeder process reduce the effect that pouring straight chlorine directly into the pool water causes ? I think this I should not check the PH in the morning after the chlorine was added at night it seems so I get a correct reading and I don't add chemicals based on a temporary effect so if I need to adjust or add chemicals to lower the PH it's really needed ? I checked and my local water is also very high in TA 160 ppm and I'm testing 180 ppm with PH off the chart so should I just expect to add maintenance levels of acid regularly to keep it from getting difficult to control would that be advisable?
