    Re: confused about TA

    If your pool is nice and clear and you are not experiencing any pH swings, I would leave TA alone....it'll slowly drift down.

    If you want to lower it anyway, there is an article in Pool School that describes it.

    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.

    Yep, I would leave the TA alone. It'll slowly come down (on it's own) and the pH will very slowly rise.
