    High TA dropping it down

    Well enough is enough. I tested my water this morning and everything was great except for my TA. So I went to lowes and bought some muriatic acid. According to pool math I put in 10oz. That took my pH down to 7.2. Now I am airiating until my pH is back up to 7.6. Got my new return jet installed so I thought why not take advantage of that to help airiate.

    Where is your TA after the MA addition? It might take a few doses. Where do you want to end up?

    Water looks great...refreshing! Nice bubble action on that return too.

    I was gonna wait to test tomorrow morning. I have a sneaky feeling it will take more than one dose. I bought 2 gallons of MA this morning.

    Re: High TA dropping it down

    That is about where I would like to see mine also. Once my pH gets back up to 7.6 I am sure I am going to be adding more MA

    Let your pH get up to 7.8 before you lower it. Doing this will help push TA downward quicker.

    Well to give an update. I tested my TA this morning. It was down to 90. Now I just need to keep airiating until I get my pH back up. I check pH this morning after airiating all night it rose to 7.5

    Hopefully before I go to bed tonight my pH will be back up to 7.8 so I can add more MA.
