Everything in my pool looks great, but my T/A has been high since my pool company installed my new liner and helped to "balance" the water. I've managed to lower the T/A to 180 by using the acid/aeration method. My PH isn't rising above 7.5 after two or three days of aerating and plenty of swimming.
So, my question is, if I'm not seeing my PH rise too quickly and I have a vinyl liner, should I be killing myself to lower the T/A, or just keep the PH in balance if it does go above 7.5??
