I am new to TFP & this is my first post so if I am making mistakes please let me know.
I am trying to prepare my SWG pool to use borates (Borax). Currently my PH is 8.0 (too high) and my TA is 110 ppm. My understanding is that I first need to get TA in the 70-80 ppm range. Is the best (and quickest) way to accomplish this to add acid to lower PH & TA, then aerate the water which raises PH but not TA? How many times might I have to add acid and aerate to bring my TA down to 70-80. Are there other/better ways to lower TA?
I am currently taking water samples to my pool store but will order a TF-100 test kit.
