I have about had it with Alkalinity. The pool school states "At low TA levels, the PH tends to swing around wildly. At high TA levels, the PH tends to drift up." I agree with the second statement, but not the first. When my pool Alkalinity is left alone, my pool like an Alkalinity of 40. pH is rock stable at 7.6 with that Alkalinity. However, if I raise Alkalinity to 80 or 90, pH goes over 8.2 and I wind up adding acid which in turn seems to bring Alkalinity back down. So, my question, should I even worry about Alkalinity if my pH is stable?
