had my water tested ph reads 7.8 they advise 1pt 14oz of muriatic acid. I think 7.8 ph is good pool is 19,000. Last week I put in 7lbs calcium chloride in i’m still have some spots of scaling & think I should do a second treatment. Your comments please!! Thank you


Typically, 7.8 would be an acceptable pH level that would not require any action. However, because you are seeing scaling, maintaining a lower pH in the middle to low end of the acceptable range (7.2 - 7.5) would be advised. High pH can contribute to the scaling problem.
