So far the bbb method has been going well. The only part that is my battle is the high TA and calcium hardness.
Here are my results today - from pool store they do a pretty extensive testing not just strips.
Tc - 4.6
fc - 4.6
PH - 8.2
TA - 240
ch - 325
Cya - 20
Borate - 30
Tds - 400
Their recommendation was close to pool calculator of 11 pints muratic acid. My question is is the amount more for the ph or the TA? How much of a decrease will there be in TA? Also, they say to only add 4 cups every 4 hours of ma. What happens if I don't wait? I already added 8 cups - four at a time 3 hours apart. Ph is still high.
Thanks. I feel like this TA is going to be my never ending battle. It is with the fish tank!
Pool is 13500 gal, 2 hp pump no heater yet.
