i have been adding sodium bicarb to raise my TA but recently my water has a jelly like feeling. is this due to the baking soda and will it subside over time?

What else do you use in your pool for chemicals?

What are your test readings and your pool volume and type?

Thought perhaps you were using baquacil instead of chlorine.

Somethings out of balance. Like I said, post your readings.
thanx
