My TA is running around 40 but my ph is right on. What is the best way to raise my TA without making my PH go all crazy?

Adding sodium bicarbonate will raise your PH. Just did the same exercise to raise my TA. Had to add acid to bring PH back to correct level.

Baking soda has the least effect on pH. Use the PoolCalculator.com "effects of adding chemicals" (near the bottom) to calculate how much the pH will be affected.
