On Saturday my TA was 230 and my PH was 7.5. I decided to go ahead and put in 32 oz of muriatic acid this morning to start the process of bringing the TA down a little. I also turned the return eyeball up to help aerate the water to keep the PH up.
Last year when I watched a man pour 32 oz in, it was like a steam or smoke rising from the water as it poured. When I put it in this morning, I didn't see anything like that. Then a couple hours later when I tested the TA.....it hadn't changed any.
Does the colder temperature affect the acid as far as the reaction when it hits the water?
Wouldn't I have expected a little change in TA?
I used 28.3% - 18° muriatic acid.
