    raising my TA

    Hello all,

    Had to raise my TA, I added the suggested amount of baking soda to the pool water. Question, how long do I run the pumps in order for the baking soda to properly circulate and how long before I should check the TA level?

    Thank you for the responses.

    The normal recommendation is to wait an hour or so with the pump running before checking chem levels. This of course doesn't apply to granular CYA as that takes a week to show up.
