    Low pH but HIGH Total alkalinity

    Moderator comment: This post was separated out from this thread: help, weird problem: low pH but HIGH Total alkalinity

    I was wondering how a person would add bubble to a pool? As the wife & I are having the some problem as Tom is.

    Hi Wildman

    I just send all my return flow to the spa and I get masses of bubbles - it looks like the water is boiling. Other people point the return eyeballs up so they create ripples. If you use the search box for aerators, you'll find all kinds of threads where people have devised things using PVC pipe. In years past, someone set a submersible pump in and connected the hose to a garden sprinkler and let that rain down on the surface of the pool. I recall reading of people setting an air hose with a homemade aerator on the end, although I think I'd tire of hearing an air compressor chugging all day. A couple kids with paddleboards will also give you lots of aeration.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
