need to lower TA in above ground pool

Postby Kathy » Thu 26 Apr, 2007 14:03

Hello,
I have a 24 ft round above ground pool. I do have filtering and sand filtering pumps with new sand replaced this year. Chlorine, PH, and CA are all in normal range. But, the TA is very high. How should I bring this down without damaging the vinyl liner?
Thanks,
Kathy

Add Muriatic acid to a bucket of pool water and broadcast across the surface to cut the alkalinity. This is the least likely way to damage the vinyl.
