Just getting started with this forum and love the information so far. I am waiting on a test kit as recommended on this site, but went to Leslie's this morning for a test.
I have been playing around with the muriatic acid & aeration to lower TA and it has come down from over 200. The water has been crystal clear except for the last 2 days -- it is slightly - moderately cloudy. I can still see the bottom drain. I am assuming tat this may be due to lowering the PH and now the scale is coming off the walls. Leslie's is recommended a partial drain due to high CH levels. What do you think? should I do that before working on it any further?
