Pool is nearly ready for swimming

Water is clear enough that I can read small labels at the bottom of our 8.5′ deep pool.

  • Chlorine is between 2-3 ppm (a little high, but will burn off with sunlight)
  • pH is 7.2 (a little low). The test kit I have suggests adding two pounds of pH up (Alkali).
  • Total alkalinity is between 90-100 ppm (pretty much ideal).

With all the slightly acid rain we have been getting I am not surprised the pH is a bit low, so I need to add some pH up and let the chlorine burn off a little and we should be good to go. Looking forward to getting wet.
