    How much MA did you add? Was this before or after those numbers?

    I'd add enough baking soda to get to about 70 ppm TA.

    No, but you can use it. Use the pool calculator to figure out how much you need to either get the TA or pH where you want it.

    A 3,800 gallon pool - would it be easier to just drain and refill?
