I'll be away from home for about 4 days and am planning to put a couple of trichlor sticks in the skimmer. I know trichlor is acidic and tends to deplete alk; how high should I raise the TA and pH before I go?
My TA is currently at the low end of the usual recommended range (about 80) and my pH tends to creep up. I often have to add acid, almost never need to raise the pH. I thought I'd raise the TA to 110 or 120 with washing soda. . . too much, not enough?
TIA for advice. . .
