Ok guys first let me say that this site is great in just a couple of days I have been able to open my pool and my water looks great. My new test kit makes a world of difference. My question is my pH is reading around 7.3 or 7.4. Its a little darker than the 7.2 mark, but a little lighter than the 7.5 mark. My TA is 110. I just shocked my pool last night for the 2nd time this week using bleach and today my FC was 3 and my CC was 0. My question is should I try to get my pH up a little using BORAX or is it ok to start the season at this level? I'm concernced if I add more BORAX it will rasie my TA to high since I'm at he upper recommended level.
