Low cyanuric acid, high pH


Recommended Posts

The water in my pool was cloudy so after reading up all about it and getting a testing kit which showed the cyanuric acid level was very low, I got a load of bicarbonate of soda (10 kilos, my pool is 40 cubic metres) and added that. It brought the level up a bit, but not to recommended level. Then I added gallons of bleach and the water now looks OK, clean, but not crystal clear. Meanwhile the pH level, which is usually low and needs chemicals to bring it up, has gone far too high!

How can I get all the levels right? Many thanks for any help!

You should read the sticky threads on water maintenance, maybe watch a few videos, and come back with any questions. The few of us who contribute to this forum are volunteers, and lack the time to educate you from zero. You clearly have some misunderstandings about water maintenance.

I am curious why you would add ph increaser to raise your cya, and even more curious why you think it did so.
