Hello everyone.

I have been lurking since our pool went in on May 23rd. Great site and I can't thank everyone for all the knowledge they bring. This sight is truly great.

I got my Taylor K-2006C a few days ago. On 8/5 my readings were 4.4 FC, 8.0 PH, 130 ALK, CYA 75 and CH 200. I then added 46oz. muriatic acid to bring down my PH as stated in the Taylor manual.

Now (8/8) I'm at 4.0 FC, 7.2 PH, 130 ALK, CYA 80 and 200 CH. If I add more muriatic acid (Taylor sheet recommends 3.2 qts to bring down ALK), won't that drop my PH to levels below tolerance? I appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

Your pH is as low as you should go. TA is no big deal. It will drop when you lower pH in the future when it gets to 8.
