pH always low

Postby Columbo » Thu 27 Jul, 2006 19:30

I have no clue why my pool always has low pH. If I tried to keep it balanced, I'd have to add some every single day. Thats why I stopped adding some to figure out why it stays low. What makes pH low and how can I naturally bring that up? People I talk to seem to have to lower there's :(

are you using chlorine? if so, what type of chlorine you're using? most of them have low ph.

what's your TA? TA too low will make your ph bounce.

I don't think that's accurate, bleach pH is 11 to 13, cal hypo is 11, lithium is 10.8, dichlor is 6.8 and trichlor is 2.8.

check your conditiner level (cylaric acid). If it's above 100 ppm drain pool water until it's in range
