    TA level

    Is the TA something to address immediately and no swimming today or can I swim today and lower it this week so it's recommended normal range by next weekend?

    Results:

    FC: 6
    CC: 0
    TC: 6
    pH: 7.5
    T/A: 180
    CH: 260
    CYA: 40
    Water temp: 82'
    Thanks,
    Jon

    Re: TA level

    Just saw this from my previous post:
    CH at 250 is just fine for any kind of pool. TA at 160 is a little high, but can be ignored unless CH is 500+ or your PH is going up annoyingly quickly.
    Looks like TA of 180 is OK to swim in. I should still start to lower it though right?
    Thanks,
    Jon

    Sure, lower TA, but there is no rush. Simply lower PH to 7.2 any time it gets up to 7.8 and the TA will come down (quite slowly, but that is fine).

    I've never had a TA lower than 225 and I've never had any trouble with my water. I add acid about once a week, maybe every 5 days. My fill water has a TA around 350, so that is why I do not aggressively attack TA.
