    Go slow with the acid, and have the wind at your back. For that size tub, I’d start with a cup, or 250ml
    Serious?? I'm reading like 3 teaspoons from poolcalculater.com.... tub is only 125g
    Hmmmm, what to plant, build, fix, paint next..

    125 GRAM tub?! Is this a tub for ants?!

    But seriously... when I first got a tub I used a LOT of test strips... you will go mad. I don’t even measure things now, a splash of this, a dash of that... slight burn of chlorine n the nostrils and off you go

    I was guessing the volume of the tub. But thinking about our pool dose in TX, a couple teaspoons does make sense

    I read that using Derek zoolander voice haha.

    Once I get the first round done and get used to it a bit I'll be splashing and dashing the rest of the way.

    Can you find the drop test kits? Much more reliable.

    pH of 9 is pretty wild - Calgary tap water last I checked is running around 8.2

    Sure you're not adding pH up rather than down?

    I got 9 from the test strips but my meter said dif. Right out of the tap. It's been a bit high the last few months..

    The acid did the trick! Dropped and levels are a hell of a lot better. When I googled my issue it seemed like a few people have ran into it, and then switched to acid and it solved it.

    130g of ph down over 2 days, and it didn't move once. 3 teaspoons of the acid and down to 7.2 in an hour.

    Hydro-lite in Edmonton. I usually calibrate every 2-3 months depending on how much I use it. Not sure how I feel about using it in the hot tub and then the hydroponics...
