    Quick TA, Ph question

    Let's see if I'm following this:

    Raise TA: add baking soda
    Raise Ph: add borax
    Lower TA and Ph: add acid
    Raise Ph, lower TA: aerate

    Hayward Max-Flo VS Pump
    Hayward Star Clear Plus Cartridge Filter
    Pentair Model 320 Automatic Chlorine/Bromine In-Line Feeder

    You have a tablet feeder in your signature, if you are using that you may need to include:

    Raise pH and TA: add Sodium Carbonate (aka soda ash or washing soda)

    Since pucks are highly acidic using them often requires raising both pH and TA regularly.

    Oops, missed the tab feeder.

    I thought aeration did as said above, but I saw a post contradicting that. Just making sure.

    The tab feeder is only used if I need to raise CYA. I keep it toward the lower end so it is useful if I plan to be out of town.
