First off - I found these boards to be of great help in getting my spa set-up --- much, much more than my spa store!!!
I have the recommended Taylor test kit.
So, I'm pretty happy with where things are at, I have my bromine levels dialed in well with using bleach after use and the floater for residual.
I was noticing the pH was always increasing, so I added 50 ppm borates per the pool calculator (20 mule team borax and Muriatic Acid).
Right now, here are my numbers:
TA = 40
pH = 7.6
CH = 140
Temp = 102
My question is should I be concerned about the TA of 40? Afraid if I try and raise the TA that my pH will go up. Advice?
Thanks for the help...
