We have had a very rainy season. At least 5 times this season we received more than two inches of water in a 24 hour period, I usually let the water level get pretty low before I add it from our well and only have had to to that maybe 3 times this season. I have had to drain it because it was above the skimmer level 3 times. I am adding all this rainy information because maybe it has a bearing on my issue. I have added boxes and boxes (and boxes) of baking soda to get my TA from about 60 to right about 90. After the last rain dump it is back at 60. Is this normal? I do have metals in the water and problems with calcium scaling over winter so this year I was paying special attention to my TA and calcium levels as I prepare to close. Maybe this is connected but I am also having to dump a lot of muratic acid in to maintain the PH at 7.5 or lower. close to a half a gallon a week. Is this normal?
TA now 70 (was at 90)
CH 240 (was at 290)
