    how important is TA...

    My test results tonight are as follows...
    FC - 4
    PH - 7.6
    TA - 160
    CH - 250
    CYA - 70

    These results have been pretty consistent. They all seem to be within the normal range for my SWG, except the TA. When I plug my numbers the PoolMath calculator no correction is given. Not sure how much (if at all) of what I should be adding.

    Any help in understanding what is going on and if I should be concerned would be appreciated.

    If your pool is running smoothly and your pH is behaving OK, I wouldn't touch a thing. High TA can be fine in some pools and sometimes causes issues in others.

    As long as your Ph remains relatively stable---you're good to go. My PH prefers about 60 for a TA it seems.
