First I want to say that I have been lurking here for a while and I have learned much and want to thank all those that help us!
My pool is filled with well water (near Houston) and with nothing added the water was way down on PH to somewhere below 7.0
I have since added some HTH brand PH Up and got the PH up to 7.4
Now I am testing my TA and I used a total of 23 drops of solution that my test kit reports 230 PPM!
I am aerating vigorously now and added about a quart of acid which dropped my PH to 7.2 but my TA is still the same.
I am unable to determine how much acid I would need to add to get my TA down to a reasonable level. And just what would that reasonable level be?
My pool is 7700 gal.
Many thanks in advance!
