    My DIY aerator...

    Hi there, I'm new to the forum and a first time pool owner. I've been doing lots of reading and learning a lot! I decided I needed more aeration since my TA has been a bit high, and reading all I could about lowering it here... http://www.troublefreepool.com/conte...tal-alkalinity

    Here is what my hubby and I came up with





    It took a bit of trimming and sanding to get the PVC to fit right but it works great. Can't wait to test my levels tomorrow!

    Thanks so much TFP!

    You'll need the MA to drop the pH and then aerate it back up. Looks great! Let us know how you do.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
