    Borates level question

    Today's Test:
    PH 7.5
    FC 4 (should be 6)
    CH 250
    TA 80
    CYA 80
    Borates 30
    Salt 3,600
    CSI -0.58

    My PH has been holding right at 7.5 all week.
    Should I hang with this current Borate level and see how my PH stability goes or is there an advantage to getting it a little higher?
    Just didn't know if it was worth the hassle of having to adjust my TA again.

    The water looked PERFECT until my flash flood incident earlier this week.
    Just slightly cloudy still but it's just sediment getting filtered out.

    50 ppm seems to be about the sweet spot with no further benefits past that.

    Thanks,
    I'll nudge it up the next time I need to lower my PH
