    Total Alkalinity

    I just completed shocking and my FC is holding overnight. Below are my most recent test results. I think they all look good except for the fact that I'm questioning my TA after reading pool school. What do you think?

    FC 10
    CC .5
    TC 10.5
    pH 7.5
    CH 250
    TA 120
    CYA 50

    17,500 Gallons
    Sand Filter

    TA of 120 is not bad at all, unless this is a SWG pool and even then, just keep a close eye on PH, which will tend to rise. The MA required to reduce PH will lower your TA over time
