    TA high after adding ProTeam Supreme Plus

    Hi,

    I am new to TFP forums but have been reading the forums for awhile now. I was reading forum post So you want to add borates to your pool--Why and How and decided to go with ProTeam Supreme Plus option as it would not affect TA. I balanced my pool before adding.

    TA was 70
    PH 7.2
    CYA 75
    FC 7.2
    Borate was 0 prior to adding

    Pool is 23,000 gallons, with SWG. Based on ProStream site and dosage chart, i added 50 lbs of their product. I followed application directions. Testing pool chemicals after adding, finding my TA is now 130 and PH 7.5. Is this a reason for concern? Pool Match Calculator doesn't indicate adding MA to lower TA.

    Thanks,

    Hello and welcome to the forums.
    How are you testing? Where did you get your numbers from?
    Not sure why your TA went up but it's easy enough to lower.
    Pool School - Lower Total Alkalinity
    Easiest way is to use Boric acid technical grade grandular. Order from eBay, there are multiple sources. I've used Duda Diesel in the past. Good pricing, and service.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the reply. I am using the Talyer K-2006 test kit, using their PH and Alkalinity tests. I appreciate the advice on using boric acid and where to find. I think I will use it in the future as ProTeam was expensive. I'll lower the PH and Alkalinity using Pool School method again. Any concerns adding more MA with Borate levels being 50?

    Nope, no concerns pool math will give you the amount to add.
