Been awhile since I posted to the forum. I moved from Florida to Las Vegas this year . Got a new house with a nice big pool. I just had said pool drained and scrubbed (been sitting a long time). I refilled with city water.
Here is the problem. My TA is a bit high (120) coming from city water. I went to lower pH from 7.8 to 7.2 with Muratic (31%). The TA did not drop at all (still at 120). This doesn't seem right.
Here are few details
City Fill water: FC:0.0, CYA:0, TA:120, CH:220, pH:7.8, Temp: 68
Pool Water (now): FC: 11.5, CYA:40, TA:120, CH:220, pH:7.2, Temp: 69
I overshot on FC, so ignore that (my bad). I used 10% bleach to get it there. I added CYA and bleach at the same time I was dropping the pH. Could this be a factor why the TA didn't drop? Could the addition of Bleach and CYA cause TA to stay high? Confused.
