pH7.6 so pH is increasing too much/too fast, about 1.3 ppm/day, so I want to decrease TA to about Target 55 Target by lowering the pH to about 7.2 and then aeration to increase the pH, did a one hour retest and pH was at 7.2
FC 8 so
TA 70, decrease TA to Target 55 via 29 oz acid to Target pH7.2 then aerate until pH gets to ph7.5
CH 225, Target 250 with 59oz oz by volume of calcium chloride
CYA 30-40 assume 30 Target 45 with by weight or 41oz by volume ; very little rain so frequent tap water addition of about 0.75 inches every 3 days
CSI: balanced only if ph is7.4-7.9 & ^ the CH did not help keep CSI balanced
pH equal 7.5 or 7.6, so aeration got pH back in range in about 36 hours
TA 70, I was hoping it would be lower. The evening of 6/19/20 we got about 1.25 inches of rain, unsure if that is an issue. Also unsure if the additions for CH & CYA had any impact which are no longer indicated today.
I want to lower my TA. The past 2-3 summers by getting TA in the 50 range there was much less frequent addition of acid, Jason ok'd it (TA50 does not work for me in the winter, only the summer).
My question is: just want me to hit it again with the acid + aeration? You want me to target pH 7.0 instead of pH7.2?
All questions and comments appreciated
