    TA high but PH high

    So my PH is good at 7.5 but TA is high around 220 (hope it's right as I have bad tips on my bottle)

    Pool Math is not showing to do anything. Should I add acid or leave as is?
    16x32 52" AG oval Century pool (14400 gallons we think). Vinyl liner. Hayward Pro Series sand filter S166T model. Hayward Power-Flo Marrix SP151021XEHC 1HP pump. Had the pool since 5/27/16. TFT-100 test kit. Water delivery initially, but use well water to top off when needed.

    Leave it alone. pH will come up in a few days and when it hits 7.8 or higher, lower it again and TA will automatically go down a little bit.

    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!

    Excellent! I love this aeration thing. It's cheap and easy
