    Picky Numbers Question

    Ok, I just tested my water and have a question. First, I've been on the high side on pH all season. Have added muriatic acid several times. My TA has been in range and still is barely. Here are my numbers today:

    pH- 7.4
    TA- 50
    CYA- 35
    TC- 4.5

    Should I add Borax for the pH and let the TA come on up with it or just let things be since my pool has had pH rise all season so far? My first reaction was to add, but second thought tells me my pH will start to climb again.

    Any opinions?

    Leave your pH right where it is. Monitor the TA carefully, if it drops further, bring it up to about 70 or so using baking soda....nothing else.

    Thanks! I worry about not taking action and letting it get away vs doing something and end up chasing it up and down. So far I've had good luck with my water in the two years since I switched to TFP. I do my best to get the word out.

    Scon36....drain your pool and move it to Florida. It would do much better there. ��
