  1. Maybe I’ll use it to determine my oil changes heh
  2. Was starting to stress fighting my hot tub water issues. Mainly PH rise. The PH down, aerate technique to beat down the TA really saved the day! Used a little 20 mule team borax and got the PH at 7.6 I haven’t had to adjust anything for 3 days and counting. A new record for me. The water looks good, feels good, doesn’t smell. I think it’s fixed! Only thing is my TDS is getting up there at about 1200 ppm from all the mistakes I was making in the beginning. I hope I can get it right again after I dump the water before long. I’m not so trusting of asking the pool stores for help either. I alread
  3. RDspaguy, thanks for the note. I have a digital ph meter. Says I’m at 7.59. It’s it not a plaster hot tub. Fiberglass or whatever they use now. Everything I see says calcium has to be up. Maybe I’m just overthinking it. I’ll look for a better testing process. Thanks!
  4. New question. I’m about a year into my hot tub chemistry experience. Most of the time when trying to bring up my calcium levels I’m getting excess grit in the bottom. Seems like I add too much but the test strips still say it’s low. I’ve switched brands of test strips. Used liquid calcium, the granular stuff too. Seems like the only time my calcium is close to right, I’m on my way to plugging the filter. The other chemicals seem to be in spec. Any ideas of what’s going on here? Thanks!
