    Should I start the lowering TA process?

    Here are my numbers:

    PH - 7.8
    TA - 170
    CYA - 60
    FAS-DPD - 12

    Thanks!

    I would suggest simply adding enough muriatic to lower your pH to 7.2-7.4. That will reduce your TA as well.

    Then wait a few days and check pH and TA again...repeat in a few days.

    If your pH has not risen back up to 7.8 after a week, I would suggest to simply continue lowering pH as necessary and leave the TA alone.
