    Total alkalinity ?

    Hey all, now that I have all my numbers where I want them,except TA, do i need to get it down asap or can i just let it happen as i lower the ph throughout the season? The pool was installed last month and I have been doing the full round of tests more often than needed but I think I just enjoy seeing how the numbers change day to day. Thanks, Ryan

    Your TA is not wildly high. I think that you could leave it alone and let it come down on its own with acid additions to control your pH. If it climbs, likely due to unusually high TA in fill water, you can lower it per our recommendations.
