I've recently installed a SWG, and I'm still sorting out some questions (I just posted another thread on testing and cold water).
I read here that TA should be between 60 - 80 with the note that "this is important". For as long as I can remember, my water's TA has been around 120. If memory serves, I need to lower PH to 7 with acid and then increase PH with aeration to lower TA.
1. Why is a lower TA so important?
2. Do I need to lower TA using the acid/aeration method? Is that the only method?
3. I get a lot of PH rise...will lowering TA stabilize my PH?
