    TA question

    My TA is hovering right around 60, and I am adding about 10 ounces of MA a week to keep the PH at 7.5. Do I need to raise the TA any, or is alright to keep it at 60? My returns are just pushing water around the pool to keep it skimmed, not breaking the water for agitation.

    Your PH looks good. It is ok to have a TA of 60 with your SWG.

    Leave the TA at 60 and let PH rise to 7.8 and see how that works. It might just stay there. If it goes up to 8.0 lower it to 7.6.
