    high TA battle

    I had to empty my pool this year so I could mud jack it and paint it.
    When I bought new water from Aqua Duck, too much for our house plumbing, the TA came in at 160.
    I have been lowering the PH with a gallon of acid, daily, and bubbling the jets upward and so far have managed to drop the TA to 100 using about 7 gallons of acid.
    The rest of the numbers are Ok I think
    PH 7.2
    FC 4
    CYA 70
    CH 300
    TA 100
    Temp 79
    Am I on the right track and am I not hurting anything by using all that acid?
    Thanks for any help.

    you are 100% on track, pool pilot is a SWG correct, keep dropping to TA of 70 or 80 and see if your PH stabilizes

    Thank you Cowboycasey, this seems to be taking forever, so I appreciate your input that I'm doing no harm.
    Yes, the Pool pilot is a SWG, apparently one of the few with enough capacity for my pool.
