So I have been taking care of my pool for a while now, and just barely noticed you input alkalinity on the PH math page whoops. Was wondering why my PH was always a bit high. (8.2) I checked my alkalinity and it was at 150. So I added MA according. Now I know

By lowering the PH and then aerating it to raise it again, most people see the TA decrease by 10. You'll probably have to repeat several rounds but no emergencies, it takes time and is ok. (y) once it gets in the neighborhood of 100-110 it will settle down and find its happy place. Once it does, *listen to it and leave it be* :) You will notice much less PH drift after that.
