Thread: High pH, normal TA

    High pH, normal TA

    ph.....7.8-8.0
    TA.....90(yesterday's reading)


    If I add muriatic acid, this will lower my TA, which is considered within normal range right now. Since there is room on the TA side (down to 60) should I adjust the ph accordingly and not worry about the TA yet.

    We still have not turned on our SWG since we are still waiting for a new filter from the pb. I do realize when we have the SWG on we will need to maintain TA levels around 90-120.

    Go ahead an lower your PH. Small changes in TA are not an issue, and you want TA lower in any case. With a SWG I recommend TA levels between 60 and 80.
