    Which do I adjust first, ph or ta?

    I haven't been on in a while, but I wanted to let every one know my triplet grandsons were born Sept 3 at 28 weeks which made them 3 months premature and I have been tied up with my grand-quads , so I have not even been in my pool for weeks and now it's time to close it !
    Anyway here are my numbers.

    C 4.5
    CC 0
    TC 4.5
    Ph 7.65
    TA 60
    CYA 60
    Salt 2900

    Do I need to lower my Ph?

    Nah. pH looks fine to me. Your CYA could use a bump up, but other than that, looks good!

    Congrats on the new grandbabies!

    Your TA is right at the low end of acceptable. If you are closing soon I would leave it alone till spring. If you stay open all year I would bump it up to 80.
