    Results from TF-100 Kit-Pool Calculator results?

    Here are my test results
    PH 7.3
    FC 5.5
    CC .5
    TA 330 (has always been high)
    CH 140
    Pool calculator recommends adding 36oz of Borax..Won't that raise my PH and TA
    We are not having any issues other than having to add stabilizer for the CYA.

    The Pool Calculator never recommends anything. It simply tells you how to adjust your levels to the numbers you have entered in the target column.

    In your situation, there is no need to raise the PH. The PH will tend to go up on it's own because of your high TA, and doesn't need any help.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    With your high TA, you can ignore pH until it gets up to 7.8. Once there, put 7.2 in as your target pH, making sure you have your current TA entered.

    For your FC goal, take your minimum number, based off your CYA and add 4 to it. Most pools lose 2-4 ppm per day, so this is a safe place to start.
