    todays testing

    Hi Guys trying to get this dialed in, close but very high CH

    FC=4.0
    CC=0
    TC=4.0

    PH=7.5
    T/A=110 This is parked at 110, cannot get it lower no matter how much MA I dump in

    CYA=30
    Salt=3440
    Borates 80

    CH=3000, I was in disbelief, re did the test, same result. Using last years chemicals, could these be too old? Pool calc said replace 91% of my water. That aint gonna happen as I would need to truck it in for like $500

    So any ideas? Water does get replaced upon evaporation

    Did you really use 300 drops (or 120 drops if using a 10 ml sample) of titrant?

    Did the sample turn purple at any point?

    Lowering TA can take a while. Also, if your fill water is high in TA and you frequently need to top off evaporation, you may never get it lower than that.
