Now that my swamp is cured, and is now lovely clearer than air, and going swimmingly......I have a question.
First off, today's numbers:
CH: 890* yep, I know its rediculous...but I have a vinyl lined pool.
Question: It was recommended by Duraleigh that I try and keep my pH a bit lower...like in the 7.4 range (I adjusted it after this test today...so it should be 7.4) in order to avoid the calcium from forming precipitant or scale. How about my TA? Does TA affect the high CH in any way? Is my TA ok at 80, or should I boost it with Baking Soda?
When I first tested the pool in February (when it was green as the Hulk) TA was 250. Acid/Aeration brought me down to a somewhat more reasonable level of 80. I'm not having any massive shifts in pH, and right now there is absolutely nothing wrong with the pool. Water is crystal. I think I grabbed some CC's because I'm due to vacuum and there are quite a few dead bugs on the bottom...skeeters and flies...gotta love the south. That's about it. I thank you in advance for any advice.
