I dont use the pool a whole lot, but the family does. This weekend i did however and noticed my skin feeling really dry. The kids say its always like that. Then i remembered reading about borates.
So i did some reading this morning.
My understanding is that it is added once a year?
I did read the different ways of adding it.
Would this solve the dry skin issues? Is it worth it to add them nust for this reason? Im sure there are more benefits that we'd notice along the way...
The water we have is vert hard which im sure contributes to the feel also. CH is around 850.
My numbers as we speak are
Water looks great, although i did just have to bring TA down a it and aerate.
Is there anything you all have experienced that you did or did not like about adding them? Most of what i read seems to be positive.
I see there is an extra test that needs to be purchased also.
Otherwise, maintenance is the same?
We dont have any water features regularly, just some we add for aeration for Ph, when adjusting the TA/PH.
We have an 8 yr old and a 6 yr old that dont intentionally drink the water...so shouldnt be an issue as far as the ingestion numbers go.
Dog is about 115lbs and occasionally drinks the splash out but not gallons of it...
Anything maybe i havent thought about or Any pointers/advice welcome!
