    I have been on the BBB method this year, and need to bump my TA up a bit. I have...

    ...some Baquacil PH Increaser still on hand from my time as a Baquacil user.

    Can I use the Baquacil PH increaser in my pool without messing anything up?

    Thanks!

    A quick search returns a MSDS indicating that it is just soda ash (sodium carbonate).
    Yes, you can use it without messing anything up.

    Just as a follow up, I have used the Baquacil PH Increaser with success!
    Thanks again, Abigail!

    I assure you, 20 Mule team borax will increase pH the same at a whole lot less $$$$.

    OP stated it was leftover from before conversion.

    Was merely pointing out if he needs pH increased in the future he needn't go to the pool store to buy the expensive stuff. While I'm editing my post, if he only needs to bump his TA without increasing pH as the op says, he can do that with baking soda also a whole lot less $$$$
