    Balanced OK?

    Seems I have to have my TA at 50 PPM to keep water balanced. (PH steady at 7.5) I was wondering if my readings are OK. Salt water using a SWG. (Techniclor) 2150 PPM Mineral Salt

    PH= 7.5
    TA = 50
    CH = 250
    FC = 2
    CYA = 15 (still adding on fresh fill)
    Borate = 45

    Am I OK with these numbers or does the TA need to be higher? Any other needed changes? If I raise my TA, seems PH drifts up

    A TA of 50 ppm is perfectly fine and it what is normally expected/needed for a spa when using a hypochlorite source of chlorine or an SWG. You may find that the pH settles in more at 7.7 or 7.8 which would also be OK. So it sounds like you're in good shape. Are you increasing CYA by using pure CYA or are you adding Dichlor after each soak (instead of using boost mode on the SWG) to build up the CYA?

    Thank you for the reply. I am using pure CYA since I had to buy it in that form last time. I am using the sock method again. Thank you Chem Geek
