    Two weeks into TPF ... where do I go from here

    It's been two weeks enjoying TFP since three drainings, refills and pink slime. Current numbers are hangin' steady

    FC - 6
    CC - 0
    pH - 7.4
    TA - 100
    CH - 50
    CYA - 50

    Do I need to address the high TA now?

    Thanks.

    If your pH is stable and your FC usage is predictable you can probably test every couple of days, just keep adding the FC so you stay in your FC range until time to close the pool.

    Usually with TA you watch the pH. If it starts to rise, use muriatic acid to lower. That will also, lower TA. As you continue to do that, the TA and pH will find their happy balance.

    Exactly. Monitor your pH daily and see how much it rises over time. Every pool has a sweet spot for TA where the pH will lock in. It is just a matter of record keeping and muriatic acid.

    Thanks for the support. I never knew taking care of this pool (acquired only 4 yrs ago) could be so EASY. And aussieta you are right! Stay home and enjoy my Trouble Free Pool!
