    Questions about lowering TA

    My TA numbers have been rising for the past 3 seasons starting out at 120 and now it is 210. So i am going to go threw the process of lowering
    with MA and aeration this weekend. I have a couple questions....

    1. How long after adding the acid is it safe for use? or is the acid diluted enough that it wont be unsafe?

    2. Is the aeration process something that i can work on a little every night, (with a pump from harbor freight and the kids splashing around) before shutting off the pump and putting on the solar cover for bedtime? Or will it require more constant attention?

    I think I recall that you should wait at least 30 mins or more before swimming just to give the chemical a chance to disperse and dilute... with the pump running of course.

    You can do it bit by bit... not something that needs constant attention like shocking.

    Also on your last Q...As long as the PH is 7.2 or above, you can swim...otherwise you need to aerate to raise PH to at least 7.2
