My TA was way high, and I added a full 5 gallon bucket of dry acid over the course of several days.
After reading here, I waited a day or so, and continued using Muriatric. I added a quart and tested TA at about 170 with FC and TC registering 5+ as the Leslie/Taylor kit only registers to 5. Maybe I need one that goes to 11...
My salt cell was set at 100%, and I've been running that 24/7. I added about 1/2 gallon of muriatric last evening, dialed the salt cell back to 50%.
Last night I'm pretty sure I tested TA around 150 - with FC TC still around 5.
This evening, my test shows FC 3, TC still 5+, and PH down to 7.2 - but TA is back to 180?!?
Salt has been stable around 3500.
I'm letting it run overnight to get PH back up.
Should I have left the salt cell at 100%... CYA is steady around 40-45...
Backwashed this am, and weather is cloudy and cool. What the heck did I do wrong? Should I go back to 100% - boost on the salt cell? Did I backwash too soon?
