QUESTIONS

1. What is your experience with keeping water balanced with clear balance and do you recommend it?

I am giving clear balance the credit for clearing up my water, since nothing else has worked! I may be wrong, but have tried SLAM, Algicide and clarifier’s since the beginning of May.

2. Should I add about 1.5lbs PH up to change from 7.2- 7.4/7.5? ( TA would become about 98ish )

3. Or would you let the results from 6/6 be until PH/ TA gets below a certain number?

4. If left alone, at what numbers would you then add chemicals?

5. Any other advice or tips please add!

Thanks all😀😀

Where are you getting those test results from? They appear to be pool store results.

Looking at your signature, you have a Taylor 2005 and the FAS-DPD test kits.

Post a full set of current test results from your own test kit.

We won't provide advice based on pool store or test strip test results. They just aren't accurate or repeatable.
