    Low pH but high TA and pH keeps dropping

    Summary: Out of the tap my water has low-ish pH (7.2) and high TA (120). The TA has been stable but the pH keeps dropping. over the past 6 weeks I keep adding borax to raise pH but not affect TA and it works, but then after a week or two the pH drops again. I've scoured the TFP forums and Google...

    Is high TA a bad thing if you don't have issues

    My TA is currently 210. It's been high for quite some time. I don't have any issues with scaling or anything, and my water is crystal clear. My pH is good, and everything seems normal. I've been trying to lower my TA using pH down and aeration. Question is, if I'm not having issues usually...

    Total Alkalinity and pH

    I read recently, on another forum citing this one, that it is generally OK to let TA levels fall below those recommended if that's what is needed to keep pH down. I haven't been able to find those threads so it would be great if someone could point me to them. It has been tough to keep the TA...

    Low ph and high TA, aeration not working

    Hi. New here, having some trouble with my chemistry (low PH, high TA). I have a 21,000 gallon pebbletec pool. I heat it, min temp is 83 but its now going over that in the daytime as it heats up here in Arizona. So temp is about 85 or 86 now during the day. My stats are this at the moment...
