I am trying to reduce the TA in my SALT WATER pool to 70. The level as
measured with the TF-100 test kit has flucuated between 150-230 since
I opened the pool a few weeks ago.
I added a LOT of muriatic acid and got the pH down to around 7.3...
1.) How long do I need to keep the pH this low before I'll see the TA
2.) Once TA comes down, what factors cause it to rise again? (I want
to avoid them if possible.)
3.) And how long after adding the muriatic acid do I need to wait before
testing both pH and TA?
I have a chemistry background so please don't hesitate to use technical
terms if it would help me understand better what I'm doing and looking
