I just bought 65 pounds of this stuff (I may need a little more but we'll see). It was not cheap!
I read an older post that it can raise TA significantly which I was not expecting. Speculation was Pool Team had a bad mix but nothing conclusive.
Currently my numbers are:
PH = 7.2
FC = 5.5
CC = 0
CH = 225
TA = 50
Water is clear as it gets minus the pollen that is insane this year.
I was going to dump 30 pounds of this stuff into the pool first and then take a reading. Then du I'm a little worried my TA will shoot up to some ridiculous amount,. Do I need to be prepared to reduce my TA a lot? I assume since this stuff is ph neutral, my ph really shouldn't fluctuate that much.
I purposely got my pool ready for this (I hope those numbers above indicate that).
Any tips or recommendations? (I do have Borate test strips).
