Hey, thanks to you guys I turned a swamp into a clear pool. Now I'm working on getting my TA down.
Ph has been rising.
Anyway, I first tested and got a reading of 190 for TA with a ph of 7.4.
So I built my own aerator, it's pretty solid ill post a pic. I added what pool calc said to to bring it down to 7.0...
After reading how to lower TA in pool school I tested my ph again and after only a few hours with the aerator on it had risen to 8.0. I remember readings in pool school and other posts that it could take a while to raise ph back up by aerating. I only have one return. Does that sound right that the ph came up so quick? The TA did not come down any either. Not swimming today either. I added more dry acid and ran out, so I plan on getting some muriatic from the store.
Should I take the aerator off when I'm adding the acid to bring down ph. Or is it ok to just leave it on and add acid even with it going to get the ph back down to 7.0? And repeat the process....is that ok?
