    Which TA is correct?

    Warehouse Pool Supply recommends TA of 80-100, but TFP sezs 60-80. Which is best? Does it have to do with a pool in SE Texas?

    Re: Which TA is correct?

    The exact TA is not critical. In general you look for a TA that will tend to keep your pH stable (a too-high TA will encourage your pH to rise). This will vary from pool to pool. For example the TA in my pool is around 100, in my spa is around 60.
