    Welcome to TFP!

    Here is everything you ever wanted to know about chemicals and how to add them to your pool all on one page, Pool School - Recommended Pool Chemicals

    I would either aerate a bit to raise PH or just wait a few days to see if it rises on its own from the high TA.

    Yes, your CH is fine for a vinyl pool.

    Here is some info on how to put your pool info into your signature so you can stop typing it, Pool School - Read This Before You Post

    If you want to raise it right now you could use 20 mule team borax and it will have a very minor affect on your TA.

    If it was my pool, I would take pooldv's advice and leave it alone. You can also aerate and your pH will come up and TA will go down.
