    Question Is my TA too low to leave alone?

    Just opened my pool Saturday and the first test results were.

    FC 0
    CC 0
    pH 8.4
    TA 50
    CYA 0

    I didn't do a test for CH

    First thing I added bleach to get my FC up, then added 12 oz of acid to get my pH down, I have 3 lbs of CYA floating around in socks so I'm assuming that will be around 35 when I test next week.

    Current test results are...

    FC 4
    CC 0
    pH 7.2
    TA 50
    CYA assuming 35
    CH Still didn't test, guess I need to do that

    Do I need to get my TA up? The test turned color on the 6th drop.

    Yeah, I would increase TA to around 90-100 or so with baking soda. Everything else looks very good. Does your water look good?

    EDIT: Make that TA suggestion 70-90 ppm. That'll be just a little better.

    Yes, water looks great. You actually just commented on the pic I posted in the opening/closing forum, lol. Thanks!
