I've got very high TA (120) but am a little confused by the directions here:
It seems to hint that if I don't have those problems, no need to correct them. Well, should I or shouldn't I? What are the downsides of high TA? (Please feel free to point me to a Pool School post if I missed it.)
(Other test results for the record: FAC: 12 because I'm in the middle of eradicating a small algae outgrowth, CYA = 60, TA = 120, pH = 8.0).
Maybe related: my pH is constantly drifting upwards. I check it once a month (or so) and it always drifts up to around 8.0 so I'm constantly adding muriatic acid once a month to tamp it down to the 7.4-7.5 range.
