Using your "fix" for high TA

Postby puppypaw » Mon 08 May, 2006 10:24

I am using your recommendations to lower the TA in my inground fiberglass pool. It seems to be working after 1 day. My question is...should I be adding clorine during this process, if needed.
Thank you,

You ALWAYS want a sanatized pool. Therefore, when adjusting other chemistry, keep the chlorine in the proper ranges. low pH will not allow the chlorine to effectively do the job. I always adjust pH first to 7.4 to 7.6 and then check my chlorine for the appropriate levels. If short, add. If high, allow it to come down naturally (it will) or if in a rush, use sodium sulphite to reduce the chlorine level to 1.0 to 3.0.
