My friend has a 24' x 5' deep above ground pool. He just opened it up and I told him to let me test the water and then use the BBB method to get things right. He mentioned that last fall he put in some type of pool antifreeze for the winter.
Here are the values:
pH 8.2 (8.3)
Why would the TA be so high? Do I need to lower it with muriatic and then aerate to lower the TA? Is this high of a TA OK and I just leave it alone? Any help greatly appreciated.
