Trying to sneak up on water balance in newly filled in ground 24,000 gallon vinyl pool. Trying out the Pool Math. Not sure what to do with the TA and PH adjustment it is giving me. Don't want to overshoot for sure. Current conditions:
So far I have added salt and 10# Sodium Bicarbonate to get me here.
I have always been told to get TA where it needs to be before you mess with PH.
It is telling me to add 169 oz of baking soda AND 63 oz of soda ash simultaneously.
My question is does the calculator take into consideration that I am adding something for TA that will affect PH and vice versa at the same time???
Should I get the TA where it needs to be completely before I try to adjust PH?
If anyone has advice or suggestions it would be appreciated!
