    Target ta

    Pool math says a range from 70 to 90+
    what target TA should I shoot for?
    Went a way for 10 days with a floater from Wally's came back & TA is way low.

    FC 3.5
    TC 3.5
    PH 7.3
    TA 50
    CYA 40

    Have been using the TFPC meathod all season, everything is crystal clear.
    Thanks.

    Are you going to continue using pucks? If so, then you should raise the TA to around 100ppm. If you are switching back to bleach, then 70-80ppm would be fine.

    Re: Target ta

    TA a subjective level. If your pH stays stable where is at, I'd say leave it maybe raise a bit. If it was stable at your previous level, raise it to there. Also depends on your CSI with the lower TA.
