Thread: TA is around 200

  1. Back To Top    #1

    TA is around 200

    TA = 200
    Ph = 7.8
    FC= 0

    Pool calculator isn't working, so I have no idea how much acid to put in for the TA. Can someone help me?

    its working for me, clear your cache?
    TFP Expert who uses Pool School and my TF100 test kit along with PoolMath for my: Round 11K gallon AGP with deep end, 20" sand filter, Matrix 1hp 2spd, 6 2ftX20ft solar panels (and solar cover!), Intex SWCG (copper bars disconnected) and a Rubadub hot tub (chlorine). The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Yep, even tried in IE, doesn't work. The pH works, but not TA.

    If your goal is to lower your TA, you do that by lowering your pH to about 7.2 and aerating your pool to increase pH back up to 7.8.
    Then do it again, and again, until TA is where you want it.

    It can take days to weeks to accomplish this. There are complete instructions in Pool School.

    So, when you ask the Pool Calculator to figure the amount of MA to lower your pH from 7.8 to 7.2 w/TA 200, I get 25 ozs.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
