Okay, having a BIG problem with TA in my pool. So high right now I can't get a reading. I admit that I have NOT been keeping up with it due to summer time activities. I have been testing my FC and pH only & thought I was okay until I did a full test yesterday! I was reading on this forum and decided to check my tap water TA (well water) since I have been having to add lots of water lately with all the evaporation & splash out. It was 330!!! So every time I add water I'm adding TA!
This is NOT my only problem at this point. I have a VERY high CYA level and a VERY high chlorine level.
Full reading today with my T-100
TA greater than 1100 (I stopped dropping cause it wouldn't turn red!)
CH greater than 1000 (I stopped cause it wouldn't turn blue!)
YIKES!! I am in TROUBLE!
So, this is my plan:
water exchange to drop the CYA (but I will be adding TA by my own tap water) so,
add muratic acid to drop TA, then aerate with my waterfall & point jets up to raise pH back up without adding TA,
I'll do this several times and test in between.
Does that all sound right????? Anything else I'm missing???
We've only had the pool for a few months so I'm new at this and I guess I should've tested more & played less, LOL.
Thanks for any help ya'll can give me
