    Talking Checkup & Testimonial

    FC 8.0
    CC .5
    pH 7.5
    TA 100
    CH 375
    CYA 70

    Well, gotta admit since I became a TFP convert last year, things sure have gotten easier. I was struggling with routine testing this year, and couldn't quite get my CYA level above 60 even after adding a 8lbs of powder over May & June. This weekend it was time to get serious again. So I spent the extra $$ on some liquid stabilizer yesterday & wahlah; CYA at 70. Still a little concern with TA at 100, but I am not sure if I need to be worried or just keep on keepin' on? Whaddya yall think?

    TA at 100 isn't too bad. Adding acid to lower PH will slowly lower your TA.

    You might have purchased some "bad" CYA. I bought some once and it was crazy. Glad you solved your CYA issue!

    How is your PH holding? If you are having to add MA every day or every other day you might want to work on your TA. If you PH is steady for the most part then your TA is fine. Your POOL will tell you what to do with the TA and PH. Every pool is so different in it's wants and needs.

    Each time you lower your pH with muriatic acid.... voila! Your TA will be lowered a bit also. Win-Win situation
