Hello!! I have been lurking for a bit and learning. We are waiting for our new hot tub to be delivered. I am getting all of my pre work done so I can have on had everything I need and "know" what to do. No prior experience at all. I just checked my water from the hose we are going to use to fill the tub and my TA is 240 PPM. I did the test twice. I got to 20 drops and multiplied by 10 to get ppm. Can this be right? My PH was 7.8 and my CH was 100 PPM. I am planning on doing Bromine with a start up bromine bank. I am worried about getting my TA down to 80. That seems quite a task. I read all the notes on how to do it but I am scared, it seems a bit daunting.
Is this normal for City Water to be so high in Alkalinity? We live right outside of Houston.
Thanks for all of the info on this forum, it is so helpful!
