    how often to test for TA?

    i tried searching this, didnt find it in PS either.

    im gonna test FC every morning, ph every other day (at least to start with), I know i need to wait a few days to test CYA, what about TA? how often do you guys test it? should i test it first thing in the morning (new pool opened today)


    if my ph is good, do i even need to worry about TA? or only if my pH goes whacky?

    thanks!

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    We hide them every now and then just to make folks ask questions

    Besides, I am not going to say how many times I can look right at something and not see it
