I'm struggling trying to lower my TA. Currently it's 250. I've added MA to the point of lowering PH to 7.0, but even with airation, I can't seem to bring it down due to high TA content in both tap and well water. It seems I need to add about a 1/2 inch of tap/well water each day to keep the right water level. Here are my testing numbers using the Taylor 2006 test kit:
I know I need to bring my CYA up. I was going to add stabilizer later today. Does that have any effect on TA or would it help to keep it down? I've been using bleach and some leftover stabilized chlorine pucks, but understand that also raises PH and TA. Any advice on how to best lower my TA given the circumstances?
