    Yes, wait 7 days and then test CYA again.

    Adjust your PH to at least 7.2 soon, before shocking if you need to shock.

    Sure, raising CYA to 45 is a great idea.

    Acid lowers TA. Aeration raises PH. When TA is high, the ph drift is quicker with aeration. With lower TA like yours, the drift shouldn't be that bad.

    Ok, so i would keep an eye on a positive drift of PH and try to maintain TA levels , say weekly? And the answer is "Johnny"-

    Over the hump with the new program. Numbers have been running great and am used to the whole scope of the process. Pool looks great,Wife and kids are happy and actually daily care of pool is becoming easier. Have turned several people on to BBB and have had many thanks for it. It's everyone here that the thanks should go to. Have already lowered operating cost this year and can't wait to see end year total saving's. So thank you all !
