Ok, being a somewhat savvy with chemistry I know that Baking Soda is a base therefore an acid neutralizer (baking soda is an antacid), so when I read the pool calculator and saw "soda" wash, I just assumed it was baking soda.
After my TA numbers keep going up and the PH was not increasing as I wanted when adding the baking soda, I re-read in the pool school and went "oh ****."
I realized I should be using Borates (Boraxo) for the PH.
The pool calculator states that Baking Soda raises the PH in the Total Alkalinity section too.
So what is the bottom line on this? The 20 Mule Team added in the right amout brought the PH right into line.
