I read throughout this forum that lowering the pH and aerating should lower the TA. My TA has been over 240, since I started the pool two weeks ago.
I thought I read, but I can't find it now, that the higher TA can cause the pH to creep up. Since I am experiencing pH going up (7.3 moves to 7.8 over 3-4 days), I thought maybe this was the cause. My setup 18' round vinyl metal frame pool, 6,600 gallons.
So if I move my pH down to 7.0, is it still OK for swimming?
In any event, I read what seemed to me to be a nice way to aerate on this forum. I'm going to make a bubble maker out of some PVC and a valve on the end of an air hose run by my compressor.
