If borates lower chlorine usage as stated in the "So you want to add borates" article, how does one determine this decrease? Pool math gives the same demand results with or without Borates added. Do borates prevent loss? Is there a table somewhere I am not aware that outlines a new FC requirement with borates added?
Can I add borates gradually? For instance two or three boxes each time I go grocery shopping and correct PH as I go?
