Good afternoon TFP,
I SLAM over a week ago and all of my numbers are holding steady here:
pH 7.3 7.4 (I can't exactly tell - its not 7.2 but not yet 7.5)
FC 6.0 today (i have been drifting down since SLAM)
CC 0 CONSISTENTLY every evening and morning
CYA 50 (now 50 and trending up - I added granular stabilizer on Saturday)
My nature is to WANT the TA in the recommended range because its high but my CSI seems good - pool looks like glass - What would the benefit of lowering it?
"There are two reasons to lower your total alkalinity (TA) right away, because you want to slow down the rate that the PH rises, or if high TA is contributing to a high calcium saturation index (CSI) which puts you at risk of calcium scaling. You shouldn't lower TA just to reach a target number. Make sure you actually have one of the above issues before lowering your TA."
I am just not SURE that I should lower the pH and lower the TA based on the above statement.
THANK YOU for your help
