    to raise or not to raise the TA

    HI
    here are my numbers as of today,
    FC 6
    CC .5
    TC 6.5
    PH 7.6
    TA 60
    CYA 55/60
    I was wondering if i should raise my TA a little up to around 80 or so? Everything is going well. Pool is crystal clear. Ph creeps up a little then add some MA to lower and all is well.... Was just wondering or should i not even worry about it.. if its not broke don't fix it. (remember I am a farmer)
    thanks guys

    I wish....it will be a few years before we make it back that way, unless Daddy Warbucks pics up the tab.... Planning Yellowstone for next year maybe, or 2011. Maybe 2012 we'll make it out that way?

    when you get Daddy warbucks to pick up the tab pleae let me know how you did it.
    I think this year we are staying home by the pool. At least its paid for and very low cost to have fun and the kids are ok with that..
    have a good one

    Actually, without knowing your CH it's really impossible to know whether to raise the TA or not. Very soft water AND low TA could accelerate metal corrosion in periods of low pH.
