Figure I already know the answer, but what the hey ...
Last summer I didn't use borates, but this year I did and see there's far less PH bounce (as in, going up) then last year. Where before the PH would rocket up to and past 8, now it creeps, say a couple days to go from 7.4 to 7.6 or so (and the rest of my chems are essentially perfect per the Taylor kit).
I know I'm at 50 ppm for borates now because used the pool calc and also have the strips that confirm, but would like to try and halt or at least slow down even more the PH increase. I was thinking of adjusting borates to 55 and then maybe 60 ppm to see if that might work, but wanted to know if that's even worth it. I have a feeling it probably won't make a difference.
Am I stuck with upwards creeping PH? That's SWP's for you buddy, so get used to it?
