I've been working on lowering my TA and trying to keep my chlorine up too.
my numbers yesterday were,
I added the recomended MA to get the ph down to 7.0-7.2 this morning (MA hard to find around here)
so then my numbers were
waited 2 hours, tested again, same numbers as above(we have a tropical depression dumping on us)
same numbers just before I added the bleach retested 30 min after adding clorox and...
TA 170 (up10ppm)
I'm using the taylor K-2005 (high)test kit
My liner is getting that white chalky ring so I need to get the TA down. When I added the bleach it all went back to before I added the MA. What am I doing wrong?? I've recently won an algae battle and the water was almost perfectly balanced..I was so happy until the rains came.
