    Recommended TA levels...

    Guys,

    The TF test kit says TA should be 90-120, but recommended levels on this board for a SWG pool is 60-80, so which is it? I'm at 90 with other numbers good (CH is high, but that is how our water is).

    Thanks!

    60 to 80 is recommended for SWGs to help combat the pH rise.

    A lower TA will also reduce the risk of scaling, which is something to watch out for with a high CH.
