    Alkalinity @ 140

    I added to much baking soda because I was reading the range from traditional pool instead of trouble free pool on the pool math calculator. So it's 140. Do I need to add acid to get the ph down to 7.2 even thought the calculator says it should be 7.5-7.8? Or if I leave it alone is that a problem ? Thanks. Still trying to get the hang of this. Making progress though

    Leave it alone and focus on maintaining the pH in the 7s.
    If you are completely bored, you can actively work to Lower Total Alkalinity ... or just ignore it.
