So i started this year off with high TA (150) and high PH(off the charts using the taylor test kit. i added Muiatic acid to lower the ph to 7.0 to lower the TA and aerated to bring the PH back up into normal levels. I have done this process several times as each time that i do it, it only lowers the TA a portion of what i need it to. so after 3 gallons of acid i finally have the TA at 70ppm (what pool school recommends for a swg), however when i aerate to bring the PH back up the alkalinity also goes back up to 100ppm. am i missing something or do i just need to keep adding acid a little at a time until the TA stays put?
