So, my levels have been acceptable so far this year (at least I think they're OK). The two things that are way off and don't appear to be changing are my CYA and my high TA levels. I have added CYA in both liquid and granular forms but it has not yet been a week so testing is futile...in fact I still have 2 socks full dissolving as we speak.
So my question now is regarding the high TA. I read herehttp://www.troublefreepool.com/content/129-how-to-lower-lowering-total-alkalinity. That it isn't necessary to lower the TA and that it's actually discouraged to do it just for the sake of doing it. So is it something I should bring down or not?
My tests from the last 2 nights (seem pretty stable to me)
CYA 0 - <30
Salt 3400 (finally up to where I want it)
TA 150 (why is this climbing? Maybe CYA adds TA?)
Water temp is 68
