I'm new here, as you can see. I've not had problems with my pool for the past 3 seasons of ownership, using the typical pool store supplies and trichlor pucks. My TA usually is typically on the higher side (~ 120-140) and I've never measured CYA before. Minimal algae last year along shaded walls of the deep end.
My pool has been covered for the past 3 weeks, since opening, and really has not been used yet except for the hot tub every third day for couple of hours.
Now, my TA is ~ 110 and pH is 7.2. Given the above, I thought that I would try aerating instead of the old fashioned way. Before I would add some Leslie's pool base (NaHCO3?)to get the pH up. If I aerate today and cover the pool tonight, will the pH just go back down again? Do you guys ever aerate to control pH, or do you mainly use to control pH when trying to lower TA?
