After my initial fill I gradually lowered my TA to 50. I was going for 60 but overshot a little bit. Then I adjusted my pH to 7.6, and after checking pH again a few hours later -- to confirm that it was still 7.6 -- I immediately added 46 ounces of boric acid to reach a calculated 50 ppm of borates.
It's been more than a week since I added the boric acid. Since then my TA has tested at either 50 or 60, and my pH has consistently been 7.2 in my daily tests ... so it looks like my pool has reached equilibrium.
Should I be concerned about having a TA of 50?
