Thread: Lowering TA

    Lowering TA

    I'm on round 2 of trying to lower my TA. I'm using my eye return pointed up to aerate. It only took a few hours after I added the muratic acid the first time for the PH to rise back up to 7.8. My TA was around 230 & only dropped to 210 with the first treatment. My question is should I only add the muratic acid once a day, or can I just continue adding it every time the PH comes back to 7.6-7.8 until I get my TA down to around 120?

    Both ways work just fine. Adding acid more frequently will just slightly speed up the process.

    Re: Lowering TA

    Thank you for the response. I've learned so much from this forum & pool school. I've had trouble keeping my PH in the normal range. The pool supply just wants to sell me PH decreaser. Hopefully I can get the TA down, and be able to manage the PH easier. I'm on my way to a trouble free pool!
