I have a few questions for the expert folks here:
I have been consistently getting 7.5ph for months now but my TA has been low at 40. (Im using a brand new TFT-100 kit). Should I worry so much about my low TA if I'm getting great ph readings? Last year I had to dump tons of acid into the pool every two weeks to keep my ph levels down. Now it just sits there perfect.
Do I need to raise my TA to 80 even when I'm not having ph issues?
If so, can I add baking soda while my children swim?
Thanks in advance!
