very hiogh TA

My PH is about 7.2 with normal chlorine and clear water. But my TA is about 230. How do I go about lowering it from such a high number. I have a 20,000 gallon, lined pool.

Raise your pH by aerating or adding 20 Mule Team Borax, then use acid to bring it and your TA back down to 7.0-7.2 and raise the pH again and retreat with acid to bring it down.

It's a lengthy process, but it works.
