My testing with TFP kit #TFP-100 shows TA of 100.
Bioguard dealer tests TA at 102 but then also shows ADJUSTED Total Alkalinity at 94. Dealer suggests adding 22.5 lbs of Balance Pak 100 to increase ADJUSTED TA to 125-150 ideal range.
Water is and has been crystal clear for 14 days with TFP kit readings staying consistent: free Cl = 4.0 (3 to 5); Total Cl = 4.5 (ranging 3.5 - 5.5); Ph = 7.5; TA = 100; CYA = 25.
What is ADJUSTED TA and do I really care if my TFP test kit shows TA in range of 100-120?
