    Have a simple question

    Have a brand new ALL MOSAIC TILE pool. the water has been in for three days. I ave all the parameters in the correct range but for the TA being a bit high. I presume it will be normal for this go trend a bit high as well as the ph tends to drift up each of the three days because of the special quikset between the tiles for a while?

    Just lower the ph and "aerate"? Meaning fluff/churn up the water?

    Aerate means anything that mixes the water with the air. Your bubbler, sheer descent and deck jet will all help. pH may rise quickly with that stuff running.

    Hi MrNica,
    Just reinforcing what JohnT said. your water features should aerate the water nicely. Keep an eye on your PH, and adding the acid will also lower the TA.

    The quickset Im sure is probably contrubuting, that that part of it should settle down probably within a month I would think.
