I'm also trying to lower my TA in order to get my pH more stable. However, I'm in my first year so my pH is expected to rise more than a more established pool. Recently I've been adding about 18 ounces/day to get/keep my pH down, but (oddly) my TA remains at 110 or so! I don't understand why. I guess I need to do more reading and less worrying about my TA. Hope this isn't hijacking the thread - I thought it was relevant to the discussion and not worthy of starting a new thread.
I was going to start a thread to ask why my pH is drifting downward from 7.6 to 7.2, while my TA is stable at 110, where it's always been.
Due to the grandkids going back in school, cool nights down to 45-50 degrees, and somewhat rainy weather, our pool has remained unused and covered (to conserve heat) for the past 10 days. Time to get that cover off and aerate, I guess.
Only at TFP does your question get answered while you're only thinking about asking it, LOL!!!
