    Water looks awesome, do I need to do anything?

    My water looks awesome but my TA is still too high. I read that we aren't supposed to do anything if TA is high but it isn't causing other problems. Now my PH has gone too high as well...

    44k gallon plaster swg pool

    FC 4.6
    CC 0.0
    Ph 8.1
    TA 95
    Hardness 320
    CYA 60

    Should I lower the Ph to 7 then aerate?



    20' x 50' AG gunite pool (no idea on gallons) built a long time ago. DE Filter w/Hayward Pump. Well water.

    Just lower the ph to 7.2 and monitor. No need to aerate.

    I concur. Add acid to lower pH, give it time to mix so nobody swims through an acid bath, and
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    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!

    Could the acid have raised my FC level?

    No, it won't raise FC.
