I have re-reviewed the TA issues with SWG pool. I am doing fine with my pool...I usually add about 3-4 cups of Acid about every 4-5 days. My pH usually stays 7.6-8.0 range (that is when I add more acid..when is hits 8.0 or so). It never gets much lower (due to boric acid in pool @ 30-50 ppm).
However, I keep my TA at about 50. I add a few lbs. of bicarb about once a month, and TA stays around 50 or so.
Should I add more bicarb to keep TA at 70? I remember some of info posted a few months back talked about keeping SWG pools closer to 50 to "slow" the pH rise.
However, I now see the recommendations are TA of 70.
Is this just a minor difference, or am I headed for trouble if I keep the TA too low (ie. at 50).
