Hi! Thank you for all the great advice I've received in the past.

Question:
Using muriatic acid, I have my PH down to where I want it (7.6), but TA is too low (47). How do I increase TA without increasing PH too much? Products to increase TA and PH contain the same thing, Sodium Carbonate. Seems self-defeating to increase both.

Any recommendation to increase TA, but not PH (too much)?

Raise TA - use baking soda....it has little effect on pH
