    Calcium increased question

    I finally got most of my numbers in range! But now I need to address the calcium hardness.... Or softness as it may be. Its at 150 right now. I have the calcium increaser and know how much to add....but I'd like to know if adding this will affect my ph or ta numbers? Thanks!

    Increasing CH will not have any effect on PH or TA.

    as Jason said CH will not affect TA or PH
    but if TA and/or PH are high you may develop scaling
