    TA Back to normal range now what?

    I need to clean the tile and mortar. What's the best product, method? I was running TA 110 and now have it down to 80 with pH of 7.5.

    Thank!

    What are you cleaning off? A photo or two may help us visualize what you need to do.

    1:3 diluted muriatic acid in a squirt bottle along with a scrub brush and some elbow grease on the tiles. Keep a pitcher or bucket handy to splash pool water on to rinse it.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
