My TA has been high all season, I added Borates but missed the part about lowering the TA first. I used the pool calculator and put in my TA (325-350) at the time and figured the Borate increase from 0-50 and just added all the borax and acid at the same time in two doses (2 gallons of 31.75 and 5 boxes of 20 Mule Team). As things currently sit I'm at 225 TA and 50 Borates, but my PH is measuring 7.0 where it was always at 7.6 prior. Eyes sting a bit after swimming. Is that caused by the low PH and what should I do to raise it? I think I read not to use PH-up type chemicals and to possibly aerate (how would I do this in an Intex pool), but I can't find the articles. Thanks!
