I am having a SWG installed, and want to get my chemicals where they need to be first. I'm going to get some liquid stabilizer and start bringing my CYA up on Friday. I also need to adjust both my TA and pH, and I'm not sure which to do first given the instructions on the sticky (pasted below).
Quote from sticky:
Adjust your Total Alkalinity to 60-80 ppm. (This is IMPORTANT!)
Adjust your pH to 7.5-7.6 and not any lower. Monitor your pH and when it climbs to 7.8 add acid to lower it back to 7.5-7.6 (This is also IMPORTANT!)
If I keep my pH where it is, my TA is too high, and if I lower my pH to bring my TA down, my pH will be too low. What should I do? I have about a week, maybe less, before installation.
Today's test results:
FC 6 (taken mid-day, it's usually 4 in evening)
