    My TA is I need to adjust it higher?


    Just had a test at my pool store for a few reasons but mostly just to see how mine matches up with my Taylor kit. I came out to 100, they got 92. Anyway, they want me to add 11 lbs of TA increaser, with their recommended range being 125-150. Isn't that a bit higher than needed? I thought that where I am is fine. Should I bring it up a bit? This is a gunite pool.

    Here is what you need to read for being a TFP

    Pool School - ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry

    That tells you what your levels should be and how to get them there without going to the pool store.

    You did the right thing coming here to ask. Now you need to use and trust YOUR tests. The pool store is out to make money so..........

    Anything else we can help you with?
