Just checking to see how protracted the process might be in my case.
CYA 50 and rising
Borates 30 (left over from last year - pool builder ignored TA levels before adding borates)
SWG maintaining about 3 ppm FC
Water temp - 67 deg F
Aeration - air compressor feeding a coil of 'sprinkler hose' weighted to the bottom-- lot's of tiny bubbles
So, I'm adding muratic acid and achieving a pH of 7.2, and here I wait for the pH to rise, but it isn't increasing since yesterday (added acid at noon, aerated from noon-5pm, then closed up everything, started aerating again around noon today and the pH hasn't budged from 7.2). Could it be because I added stabilizer yesterday (to reach my target of 80 ppm)? Are those borates already in the water buffering the pH pretty well, and thus slowing things down? Am I looking at weeks of acid/aeration?
