Sorry if this is a stupid question... Since an SWG is a aeration device, can I expect the pH of my pool to rise due to simply running the SWG ? If so, does this happen "quickly" ? I know that will depend on the % setting on the SWG, but it seems to me the aeration provided by the SWG might be minimal.
In my previous topic I noted that my pH was high (8.0+) and have gotten that down with the addition of 2 gallons muriatic acid (could only find ~15% acid at the store I went to) to 7.6. However, in my followup reading, I noticed a comment about aeration increasing the pH.
The reason I ask is my TA is a little high, so I'm considering lowering the pH to 7.2 and using aeration to raise the pH back up. So will just running the SWG be enough aeration ? Or will I need to do something else ?
Thanks in advance !
