Have a 18+19 52 intex two things water cloudy can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’t get my ta down.. Every pool place tells me not to add anything to bring it down just fresh water and keep chlorine higher Also do I need to use skimmer at night when I run filter


Your TA (total alkalinity) is closely related to the pH. If both are high, you do want to bring them down with dry acid. However, if the pH is ok, you can live with a little higher TA as the pool stores suggested. Clarifier might help to clear up the water as well. And do use the skimmer when the pool filter is running.
