How do I raise my pH without raising my TA?

Problems relating to pH and total alkalinity.
Increase ph, increase TA. Reduce pH, reduce TA.

You are Yo-Yoing with the dry acid
When aerating you have to introduce air into the water. So make a connection to your return and make it spray into the air
Like this Aerator
When you have reached your desired pH take it higher then reduce down with muriatic acid, this will reduce pH and TA
Use these products to balance your pool
Liquid chlorine (sodium hypochlorite or plain bleach)
Muriatic acid (hydrochloric acid) to lower pH and TA
Bicarbonate of soda to raise TA
Aeration will raise pH only
Soda ash will raise pH and TA
