    Ph and TA

    I finally got my ph in check, it has been high since the pool opening, it is around 7.5 now. My TA has always been about 110, but when I opened this year it was extremely low. I got it back up to 110. But now that my ph is where it needs to be, the TA has crept up to about 150, is this normal and OK, or do I need to lower it? And if I do, how do I do it? Thanks!

    Re: Ph and TA

    The TA is fine. Each time your pH hits 7.8, lower it to 7.2. Over time the TA will come down.

    If you start to become annoyed by having to lower the pH too often , then you can do the TA lowering process in Pool School: http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...l%20alkalinity

    Thanks Butterfly! Yeah, I think I'll just let it ride and keep a better eye on the ph.
