    Very happy with my new borates in pool

    Although more expensive than using the 20 Mule Team method I went with the Pool Proof product. So far two positives, the water has a beautiful glassy appearance and the back swimmers are gone/dead 😀

    My pool has been blue and well balanced since it was completed in March of this year.

    In the coming weeks we will see if the ph and CL stabalize more with the borates in the water. Borate level is 40-50ppm.

    Enjoy the borates. They made a big difference for me with pH stability. My SWG also ran more efficiently and the fact that I have never had any scale in my salt cell I attribute to keeping my CSI near -0.1 and having borates.
