TC 4.05
pH 7.6
Alkalinity 94
Adjusted Alkalinity 81
Calcium Hardness 273
CYA 44
Phosphate 129

So , my pool store recommends my Alkalinity between 100-120. Other sources, have a similar recommended range. However, according to TFP my level is just fine. Why such the discrepancy in recommended levels? And do I go by adjusted or just alkalinity?

Also, my pool store recommended range for calcium is 175-225. Is my calcium too high?
