    Too high Ta?

    5300gal AG vinyl pool :: test results
    FC -4.5
    CC -0.5
    PH -7.8
    TA -130
    CYA -30

    Is TA of 130 too high?..can any problems occur just leaving it?

    It's probably okay, but may tend to cause pH rise. If you can deal with the pH, don't worry about the TA.

    130 does not seem too high. I would just leave it and let it lower as you deal with the pH. 7.8 is the upper side, so as you bring down the pH it will lower your TA some. Trick is just finding your pools happy spot. I would be more worried about what the pool frog is adding to the pool.
