When my pool builder built my pool last year, he left me with a few pails of "pool store" chemicals. On testing my pool when I opened it last week, the TA is around 50-60 and would like to raise it to the recommended levels here at TFP to about 70 (or should I just leave it as is?).
The pail from the pool builder is called "Buffer", and it says it's used "to increase TA of pools", and it's made by Mursatt Chemicals. It doesn't mention if it also raises the PH as well.
So my two questions are;
1. Should I try and raise the TA or is it OK at 50-60 (my PH seems stable enough, usually around 7.5)
2. Do you think I should be careful when adding it, in case it increases the PH as well?
