    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

    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...

    OK maybe I should start a new thread, but I've seen advice here. I need some help with the doors on my house. Specifically the exterior doors. It is strange, it is almost like the trim or the door are 1/8th of an inch out. They've always been that way but now that I'm on week 3 of being at home, it is really getting to me.

    I've tried adjusting them with ever known 'trick' in the book. Resetting the hinges, bending the hinges, even getting some weather stripping and stuffing it in there. They just don't seem right. Is there a way to move the door closer to the deadbolt side? It isn't out of square, I've checked that. It swings fine. I just get leaks.

    You could put flat 1/16” shins behind the hinges on both the frame and the door. Should shift it over.

    Figure it's worth asking here...

    Looking for local sources - more on affordable side not baller side.

    Tslot extrusion in 6'+ lengths 10 series imperial or 20 series metric.

    And does anyone know of a sign shop that might have hunks of ACP/alucobond they sell from the scrap pile?

    Cleaned the tube thingy under my daughter's sink. Hair and other assorted filth was preventing proper drainage.

    Had to take the sink stopper thingy and reassemble. Must have been backwards. But it works good now.

    Poked my finger through the basement ceiling drywall. Bathtub drain failed while my kid was soaking in the tub. Good times all around.
