Split from Acid Aeration .
I respectfully disagree with your assertion that aeration is futile. pH rises faster with aeration than without. I have lots of aeration in my pool (sheer spillway from spa and rock waterfall) and it has a definite impact on pH
Also, @lynzizzle lives in Indiana and her swimming season is coming to a close very soon. She doesn't have the luxury of a 10 month swim season that us westerners have and so she would definitely benefit greatly from some additional aeration equipment, if not this swim season than definitely next.
Her high TA coupled with her high pH means that her pool water will always be very alkaline. That can cause eye irritation and affect the aesthetic properties of her water as well as make calcium scaling more of an issue. She should definitely consider acid/aeration treatments above and beyond her baseline pool water care regimen as a way to improve her pool water quality. I guarantee she would feel the difference swimming on a nominal 7.4 pH low alkalinity pool in comparison to her normally higher pH pool water.
