Hope everyone's summer is going well. I have a quick question. Since I took over the pool about 6 months ago, my CH has been a problem (~1000) and I will take care of it once summer winds down a bit by doing some drains. In the meantime, to help keep that under control as best I can, I have trying to run my pH and TA on the lower side- around 7.2 and 60, respectively. Recently, my pH has been drifting up quickly and I've had to add acid daily to keep it below 7.6 and have it hover around 7.2. Because of that, I've dropped my TA down to 50. I've read on here that having TA too low can also cause pH drift.
My question is... With my calcium hardness issue, is it ok if I just run the TA that low and work on keeping my pH at 7.2 to avoid calcium build up or should I raise the TA because 50 is too low?
