I did a water test after all of the N. Texas rains.
FC 9, PH 7.5 with a digital tester, CYA 60 just added stabilizer, TA 50-60, CH 120.
According to the recommended levels for a saltwater pool, ideal is PH 7.2-7.8, TA is 60-80 but 50 -60 is acceptable, CH ideal is 350-550.
Should I leave my TA alone and concentrate on raising the CH? Frankly it's been a long time since I checked my CH and TA.

Get your CH up to 250+ppm soon.
Other items are fine. Continue to monitor.
TA should be tested each time your pH rises to 8 and you need to add acid.

Thank you much. I was thinking the same, just looking for a little conformation.
My pool seems to like the 60-80 TA, PH seems to stay a lot more steady at those number.
Thanks again.
